They drew a few sharp breaths raggedly, as their car came to level ground and seemingly slowed down a bit. Maybe they wouldn’t die after all.

The car rolled down another descending slope, picking up speed again. The roar of the engine was deafening and almost drowned their panicked screams.

Outside, the attendant sighed and warily watched yet another excited bunch of giggly kids line up near the entrance.
