An interesting event happened on Saturday while Steve and I and the kids were at the Adventuredome in Circus Circus. We were tooling along through the park, going on rides, and having a wonderful time. While Steve and Emily were on the water ride, Kyle and I were waiting for them (Kyle was too little for this ride). We were standing next to the big roller coaster and all of a sudden a movie of the rollercoaster jumping the track and smashing into me started playing through my head. “Whoa, what was that?” I thought. I could almost feel the impact, the smashing, and me dying. In the image, the roller coaster missed Kyle (by some miracle) and just smashed into me, killing me instantly. I shook my head to clear the image but it just kept playing. It took a minute or two for me to realize that this wasn’t my thought. It was being pushed onto me by what felt like my higher self or guides, I wasn’t sure. I said to them, “Hey? What’s with the morbid movie? I’m having a wonderful time here with Steve and the kids. Why are you showing me this?” But instead of answering me, they just kept sending me this image of the roller coaster cars jumping the track and smashing into me. Steve and Emily got off their water ride and joined us. I didn’t mention the image I had received because it was such a downer, plus I didn’t think it meant anything. It gave me the heebie jeebies though and I was glad to get away from the roller coaster.
We went on our merry way. A short while later Steve took Emily into the Sponge Bob 4D simulator ride and Kyle and I decided to sit on a bench and rest our weary feet. We were sitting next to this other lady and chatting a bit. All of a sudden, the roller coaster comes whizzing by at high speed. We were sitting in front of a very small piece of track high above us. But as it passed by, I suddenly felt a sharp sting in my leg. It felt like I got shot with a BB gun. I looked down and saw that a piece of the roller coaster had flown off as it passed by and struck me in the leg! It was a large screw with a washer and another piece I couldn’t identify. I was in shock for a moment and then I realized that I had to get someone’s attention. I’m no engineer. What if this piece was critical? What if the roller coaster was about to fly apart or something? So I quickly got the attention of a park attendant. She radioed for an engineer to come to our location. When he saw the piece I was holding he looked panicked and instantly got on his radio and told the roller coaster ride operator to stop the ride immediately. The attendant asked me if I was injured. I had totally forgotten that! I pulled up my pant leg and saw that my skin was not punctured. It just felt very bruised and there was a red mark where I got hit. Thank goodness I was wearing jeans. I think it blunted the blow.
People around me who heard the story were amazed that I wasn’t injured, given the size of the piece that flew off and how fast it must have zinged off of there. I realized how lucky I was that this piece didn’t hit me in the face or hit my 3 year old son! I also realized how lucky I was that it did hit me! What if the piece had flown off and landed in a planter box and no one noticed? People would have been riding a broken roller coaster.
They asked me to stay where I was so they could get security over to fill out an accident report. They offered us a free ride on their trampoline and of course apologized profusely for the incident. The roller coaster was out of commission and did not pass by us again. After a while they came and told me they repaired the ride and it was safe again. They thanked me for alerting them to the problem right away as it had probably saved lives. I don’t know if they were exagerating or not, but I was glad nonetheless. It was then that I remembered the image I had gotten from my guides. And I realized that it could well have been a premonition. I was in the right place at the wrong time and got hit with an apparently critical piece of roller coaster. Because of that they were able to fix the ride and make it safe again. Would it have jumped the track and killed someone if that hadn’t happened to me? I don’t know. I doubt it. What are the odds right?
When Steve and Emily came back I told them what happened. Steve was amazed this all happened while he and Emily were on their ride. I think we had more excitement than they did! Emily enjoyed her free ride on the trampoline and we concluded our experience and went home. Just another day in the life of a psychic. 😉
