From the “You gotta be kidding me” files… there’s research that says a roller coaster found right here in FLORIDA can actually remove kidney stones.
No I’m not drunk.
Metro reports that researchers found that when their patients ride a coaster with a lot shaking, the movement can actually dislodge kidney stones!
A patient discovered this miracle cure on a trip to Walt Disney World. He rode Big Thunder Mountain at Magic Kingdom and sure enough, his kidney stones were dislodged. The up and down and side to side movements were apparently just what the doctor ordered.
They had others try it and sure enough, the unique movements of the ride seem to do the trick.
By the way, I know they’re in the photo. But we have no reason to believe members of The Band Perry suffer from kidney stones. But maybe that explains their absence.
