The coaster was returning to the station when Shane collided with the bird. He tells NBC10 he turned his head towards the parking lot when he heard a car alarm seconds before impact.
"If that car alarm didn't go off, it would've hit me dead in the eye," said Shane.

Wren will this horror end?

He looks more likely to be the female on the cover than the male.

The bird is now uncertain if he will continue in his aspiration to become a stunt double in horror movies due to the trauma of being hit by a screaming face.

Get a haircut ya punk! The bird was looking for nest building material and mistook your greasy head for a weed patch.

Didn't this also happen to "Fabio" some years ago, and it was a goose that plastered him. He wasn't so fabio after that. :P

Everybody knows. No need to cover that here.

Fabio was the first thing I thought of when I read about this earlier today. Is this a common occurrence?
 
2012-07-29 02:05:11 AM  
I guess one good tern deserves another.
 
2012-07-29 02:13:51 AM  
Shane believes the bird was a pigeon.

Oh. Revenge killing.

1:20 in the video - seriously, they couldn't have found a car alarm to demonstrate? The boy turned his head in interest because of this, this is interesting to me too!

It's not bird strike, it's "engine face suck"!

It's like it had no where else to go!

I said to my girlfriend 'jeez you got a big pussy,' 'jeez you got a big pussy'

She said 'why'd you say that twice?' I said 'i didn't!'

Shutting down the coaster for 30 minutes after the bird strike does what, exactly? It shouldn't take that long to take one train off-line and place a backup on-line. This was Six Flags Jersey, bird guts would have been an improvement in conditions.

ThatDarkFellow: I wonder how long until they sue Great Adventure and nature.


I cringed at this: "If that car alarm didn't go off, it would've hit me dead in the eye," said Shane for that reason. I got a whiff of someone seeding lines in him that would help make a better lawsuit.

I really hope I'm wrong, though.

The funny thing? This very park had some PR issues last week because guests saw some forceful animal control (read: killing a bird to prevent a ride issue) and the animal activists had a shiatfit.
