Shane and Thomas worked for a steel plant and are best friends. One day, Shane and Thomas were watching TV, and they saw a commercial about “Dream” which is an airplane company. The commercial was about going Canada on a plane for $1900 a person. For a week, Shane thought it would be fun to go and see another country.
Shane and Thomas get so grossed out that they have to move to a different hotel across the street. They find that hotel is clean. Shane and Thomas call the taxi cab again so they can get a rental car.
They go to the carnival, and they get on this real big roller coaster. They notice that it is very unstable, and it did not follow many safety procedures. It was too late for Shane and Thomas because they already got on the roller coaster. Shane and Thomas were scared. While the ride is going, Shane and Thomas feel the ride start to shake more and more. It was so bad, and Shane almost got thrown out of the cart.
One of the bolts that held the steel tire on comes off and sparks are flying! They are about to get knocked out of the cart like a bowling ball. The cart is faster and faster—SWOOSH! The cart comes off the track, and Thomas and Shane go flying in the air, the cart hits a tree, stops and the tree breaks. The next day, the friends end up in the hospital, and they are there for the next three weeks. They sue the carnival, and the carnival goes out of business. It took Shane and Thomas over four weeks to get home.
