Man blinded after riding Dragon Challenge
A man was blinded in one eye after riding the Dragon Challenge roller coaster at Universal's Islands of Adventure on Sunday. Carlos Montalvo rode the roller coaster and returned to the station in pain with blood on his face and unable to see out of his right eye. After an extensive inspection, Universal was unable to find a cause of the accident.
Dragon Challenge is a dueling inverted roller coaster that opened in 1999. Able to choose between two separate tracks, there are three close encounters with the other train. Dragon Challenge is one of the few inverted roller coasters that has both a minimum and maximum height limit.
