Still that seems a big risk that could be mitigated by their telling people to wear glasses of some sort, or handing out cheap plastic ones, Mr. Roberts. Even if they have someone who can remove it, a lot of damage could be done long before the ride ended.
I miss the train as it used to be, and the landscaping that was part of it.
Wow, ember in eye hurts terribly just to even read about, Mr. Roberts. You were lucky you didn't damage the retina. That's scary. They should specify use of goggles or something.
The train at Dollywood still runs on coal. I got an ember in my eye once while riding on it. No permanent damage but it made for a very uncomfortable first half of the ride opening and closing my eye lid and tear tearing up in that eye trying to work the amber out of it.
