At 3:45 today, a guest to Six Flags New England died after falling from the park's mega-coaster Superman: Ride of Steel.
Today's tragic incident occured as the train was making its way back to the station just before the end of the two and a half minute ride as the train was entering a banked curve. The man, 55-year old Stanley Movarsky, was riding in the last car of the train.
After flying from the train around 3:00, Movarsky was taken to a nearby hospital where he died from injuries sustained. Superman is closed while an investigation takes place.
In 1999, a rider on a similar mega-coaster, Intamin AG's Superman: Ride of Steel at New York's Six Flags Darien Lake, fell from the ride's train but survived the fall.
