The teen's friends noticed she was unconscious when the RockNRoller Coaster ride came to a stop.
Attempts by park personnel to revive her were unsuccessful and the girl died before an ambulance could get to her at the Walt Disney Studios Park in Marne-la-Vallee.
The ride is closed while police investigate, but a preliminary inspection showed no obvious problem with the machinery.
