Accident at OCT Ecoadventure Valley Shenzen kills six

1 Haunted Castle at Six Flags Great Adventure – Jackson Township, New Jersey, USA. May 11, 1984 – 8 Dead

Completing our list of the deadliest theme park accidents is a surprising addition. As we have seen from some of the example on this list, sometimes the tamest attractions can prove to be the most deadly. In fact few would think that a standard haunted house experience could cause any deaths at all. Unfortunately the haunted castle at Six Flags Great Adventure proved simple things can be deadly.

In May 1984 few would have thought that an experience that you participate on your feet without being flung into the air could turn into a disaster. Unfortunately the castle burst into flames while visitors were enjoying the attraction, and with assistance from wind the flames soon reached 2,000 degrees. The intense heat soon melted the walls and turned the castle into a raging inferno.

Most of the visitors escaped, but eight teenagers became trapped and died in the blaze. Their bodies were unrecognizable.
