A video going viral shows a girl falling from the giant wheel and the message reads that it was bad news for Wonderla lovers. Newly opened Wonderla Park tragedy, one girl dead, adds the text.
However, Wonderla Hyderabad denied that the accident ever took place in its park and said the video location is not in its park. In a statement, Wonderla’s Marketing Head said there was no such accident that occurred in any of its parks and the video making rounds in Whatsapp does not belong to Wonderla.
But social media is still going viral over the video.

However, the accident shows some girls following the body being taken away by guards, indicating the fatal accident could have taken place indeed anywhere in South Asia. Where and when remains unclear now with the amusement park operator Wonderla Holidays denying the accident, according to Siasat Daily. Youtube has removed the video citing impropriety.
The park was opened recently amid huge publicity with an investment of Rs.250 crore off the Outer Ring Road on 50 acres of land near the Hyderabad international airport. In its reply, Wonderla not only denied the incident but also added links to several old videos which have been churned out anew.
