  • October 15, 2015, a 20-year-old college child was about ride the T-Rex Rampage wooden rollercoaster, but the attraction was filled with long lines and he didn't have an Universal Express card with him to skip lines and realized that he can't go through the single rider entrance since it was closed. So instead of waiting or go to different attractions, he secretly sneaked up to the unrestricted area and climb up to the rails, hoping that he could get on the coaster. Despite he either ignored or didn't hear the park's staff yelling warning him to get off because the coaster coming, the young man had end up instead got run over by a coaster coming by and fall to his death.
