The Magic Kingdom’s slogan is “The Most Magical Place on Earth”. However, that isn’t the only magical place at Disney World. Magic happens everywhere across Disney World property. Whether it’s cast members making someone’s day or the joy from the fireworks, it’s truly a magical place. However, one of the most magical events happened yesterday as a woman gave birth on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster.
As a reminder to those who haven’t been to Disney for a while, “Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is a loud, thrilling, high-speed, roller coaster type ride that includes sharp turns, upside-down maneuvers, and sudden drops and stops.” This is a direct quote from Bill St. James in the queue of the ride. Essentially, it’s a roller coaster that goes fast and upside down. Despite this, a pregnant woman rode it and gave birth on the ride. At least the child has an awesome name!
Riding Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Pregnant
Thrill rides at Disney World are plastered with warnings. This can be for people with heart problems, back problems, pregnant women, and more. In fact, in the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster queue, Bill St. James alludes to this as well. He says, “For your safety, you should be in good health and free from high blood pressure, heart, back, or neck problems. Motion sickness or other conditions that could be aggravated by this adventure. Expectant mothers shouldn’t ride.”
It’s quite obvious that pregnant women shouldn’t ride Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. This puts the baby and mother’s health at high risk given the intensity. In fact, Disney has multiple signs throughout the queue warning guests of this. In fact, it’s well-known that women should not ride intense roller coasters when they are pregnant, especially when they are as far along as this woman apparently was.
This isn’t the first time we saw something wild happen on a Disney World ride. In fact, a few months ago we reported here that Space Mountain would operate with the lights on after a man lost his hands on the ride. Obviously losing your hands on a Disney ride is different from giving birth on a Disney ride. However, these both fall in the same weird Disney news stories. So how and why did a pregnant woman get on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster?
How Did a Woman Give Birth on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster?
According to an internal source, Disney is afraid to “discriminate” against people. They would hate to accidentally think someone is pregnant and not allow them to ride the ride. If it turns out she isn’t pregnant, Disney is looking straight down the barrel of a lawsuit. So to err on the side of caution, Disney refrains from asking any riders if they are pregnant or not. Because of this, it’s up to the women to determine if they should or shouldn’t ride these rides.
According to the woman who gave birth, she wasn’t planning on giving birth that day. In fact, she was as surprised as anyone else. Apparently, she felt something funny going around the third loop. When the car pulled into the station at the end of the ride, she was in the middle of giving birth. According to her, despite the odd location, everything worked out fine and the baby was born healthy. In fact, she thinks riding Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster helped her give birth.
Now for the best part of the story. The woman fittingly named her child Steven Tyler, after the lead singer of Aerosmith. She said, “My baby was born on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, it only makes sense that his name is connected to the ride.” This birth forced Disney to temporarily close the ride to clean it up and take her and the baby to the hospital. However, everyone seems to be doing well and the ride opened up shortly after.
