  1. This is one of the great fears when a company owns multiple parks and “your” park is not the crown jewel park. many on here stated CF would need money in the next few years. What’s next? Look at all the fun we are having
  2. All theory at this point. But I wonder if testing would miss the off chance the OTSR are not fully down as they should or a very different shaped person riding etc.
  3. I went back to the video Online (whole video not just horrific accident). The ride op is saying it’s 430 feet tall and comes down at 75 MPH and then stops. At the end (after the accident) a lady comes running up saying are you sure you checked him, unsure if it’s to the worker or the other people on the ride. Just friggin horrific. Also it looks like from your description that is what happened and just slipped out the bottom between the gap. im a bigger guy and I wonder if the should restraints came down on me how much gap would be at the bottom.
  4. Same here. That’s how I found out I think it may be a bit of shock where your brain doesn’t know how to process the horrific thing you just saw and what to do.
  5. Holy smokes. Don’t watch the video (floating around the internet) what a terrible tragedy. https://apnews.com/article/florida-orlando-d03a753b6ac928a86222c0f3b1134619?utm_campaign=SocialFlow&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=AP
  6. Not sure if I should just open a new topic but hey let’s resurrect a dead thread. On Amazon a documentary called “Closed for the Storm” is a history of Jazzland/Six Flags.
  7. Because that’s tax dollars that’s not going into the towns that’s coney is part of. Ultimately that’s the reason. Money money money. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Or they are guilty but the park knows they are kids and the hope is a one year ban gets them to straighten up and fly right…. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I think in some parts The holes were deep enough I was able to actually travel through time and drive on the original gravel Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Ha it would never work here because Americans in the last 60-80 years have not been asked to sacrifice for the greater good. Plus the greed and me me me culture that grew during the 80s….. you’d have people cry about freedom of something while waiting on Covid results. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I don’t disagree but they should be at the bottom of the slide and maybe not have big green and red lights letting everyone else know that you are too big….. safety is safety. But my guess would be the letting everyone else know is the problem? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. don’t go hyperbole….. But my guess is the test seats are not just for weight. It’s body size. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Actually the military knew agent orange was not safe. They didn’t care. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Because the immunity from previous infection does not last. The last study I saw was 180 days of antibodies. Then you’re at risk just like the non-vaxed. Also private business can ask for anything. If you don’t like it then that’s fine. My private college demanded our vaccination record because they didn’t want me being measles mumps or rubella on campus. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I think you’ve said it better than I could ever do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I get what your saying as well. But the time to victim blame is never right. The park screwed up royally. I couldn’t sleep if any of my kids were hurt on a ride let alone were killed. Especially if I would replay the “what if I had done another check”. But the blame is 1000% on the two ride ops. The death is on their hands. They are trained to keep the guests safe and they failed their jobs spectacularly….. it wouldn’t make me feel better but the blame is on the ride ops. They screwed up and should be held responsible just like the park. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Yes let’s victim blame…. That always seems productive in this forum…. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Right wrong or indifferent this sheds a bad light on the entire industry. Also a good reminder that if you have young ones with you, ensure they are strapped in safely. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Was Skylab the tube ride? Like you were ina tube on a Ferris wheel? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. My immediate reaction to this has to be racer. Just the competition part, looking out to see dueling tracks, etc…. If I over think it I could probably come up with better ones. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. For sure. Let’s not forget that the recent history of putting up rides seems to be “clear cut the forest” type of mentality. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Why is this? Is it a space thing where KD has more? I was 7 when it closed. I have seen photos of me in front of the thing but sadly I do not remember it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Since I work in the medical field, and sometimes work with COVID patient? Which lane do I stay in? But I also like theme parks…. But I don’t want to pay for Fast Lane… Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. There is a fear that a live person says just the wrong wording. If CP says “we vow to increase maintenance” then a lawyer may make it look like CP wasn’t doing it enough. If CP says we feel terrible for her family and her rehab a lawyer may try to get CP to pay for long term care . If CP says this was preventable…. You see what I’m getting at. A well crafted letter from lawyers says nothing that could place blame. As sad as it all is, I’d wager that CF will try and say that by buying a ticket we all assume responsibility for any accident that may happen and hurt us while her family will probably ask for medical bills and future needs. Also I’m not a lawyer just know a few. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. We’ve spoken about it on this site for years. You can control lines and crowds one of two ways. 1: limit the number or 2: increase the price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
