Woman Struck By Bird On Roller Coaster in Australia

Paige was riding in the front seat of the DC Rivals HyperCoaster. She appears to be having the time of her life, screaming her lungs out as the coaster ascends its first hill. .Suddenly, she is smacked in the head by a white bird that appears to be an ibis. Otherwise known in Australia as a bin chicken.

A video shows Paige throwing her hands in the air, but there’s little time to process the bizarre encounter because the coaster has reached the summit and is about to plummet more than 50 metres downhill, reaching speeds in excess of 100km/.

A man seated beside her, identified as Uncle Mitch, registers that she’s been hit by some kind of flying debris and checks she’s okay before beginning to laugh. The ibis doesn’t appear to have deliberately swooped the girl but was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

A roller coaster is a type of amusement ride that employs a form of elevated railroad track designed with tight turns, steep slopes, and sometimes inversions. People ride along the track in open cars, and the rides are often found in amusement parks and theme parks around the world.

LaMarcus Adna Thompson obtained one of the first known patents for a roller coaster design in 1885, related to the Switchback Railway that opened a year earlier at Coney Island.

The track in a coaster design does not necessarily have to be a complete circuit, as shuttle roller coasters demonstrate. Most roller coasters have multiple cars in which passengers sit and are restrained.

Two or more cars hooked together are called a train. Some roller coasters, notably Wild Mouse roller coasters, run with single cars.
