I do believe ToT can cause strokes (reason I won't let my dad with heart disease ride it), but you would see that within hours of riding the ride. 23 days later is not significant, unless the stroke followed some other injury.

Mission: Space is another ride my father is restricted from. Both cause stress upon the cardiovascular system and can precipitate strokes. For M:S it's the centrifigual force and for ToT it's the sudden rise to the top (the drop is the thrill but the rise is increased pressure).

I can beat the 23 days later. The day we left disney in 2002 my husband developed kidney stones and a subsequent MRSA infection that landed him in ICU for 2 weeks and on homecare for 6 weeks afterwards. Gee....I didn't realize it was Disney's fault.
