  1. We do know that the investigation is not yet over, meaning that they likely have a decent understanding of at least some contributing factors, but are not yet ready to say they've identified all of them. Per the article:
  2. TTD has much more of an ability to lure in visitors from far away than SOB ever did amongst the broader public, not just enthusiasts, IMHO. So there's a difference there. At the same time, as you say, anything is possible. The ride does have a rather high cost-per-rider and I imagine it isn't as much of a draw as it used to be. Downtime is still a big problem after ~19 seasons of operation. As for the investigation continuing? When the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) investigates a major jet airliner crash, automobile crash, etc., their investigations take a while - sometimes two years. The goal is to figure out exactly what failures in hardware, software, and people led to the incident and how it can be prevented from ever happening again. It takes time to have a thorough understanding of these things, and isn't something you want to rush. I don't really see it being a problem that they haven't finished the investigation yet.
  3. For $11 more than the standard all-day dining ($31.99 vs. $42.99), you get: All-day drink wristband at the standard 15 minute interval, a $14.99 retail value An expanded menu to include not just entree + side, but also select TBA snacks Not bad if you value those.
  4. Whoops, must've missed that indeed. It's been a long 2 years. So now it's really odd they keep pulling the cams. If they were upgrading them, that should be doable in a day before anyone noticed they were gone. What are they up to?
  5. Am I missing something? Hasn't KI had no live cams since Orion's construction? If so, they're gone and don't expect to see them again unless the park says otherwise.
  6. Come on, now, they're smoothing out the ride a bit. They're not drastically altering the ride as a whole. There's no reason to believe it won't still be the same Beast that we know and love, just a better ride.
  7. The park isn't in the business of banning guests. It seems they determined that a ban for only a single season/year was appropriate for this (presumably) first time offense. A business would generally rather not ban customers at all because without customers, there is no business.
  8. So let me get this straight. You just happened to run into a group who got into trouble, but weren't involved when security came to investigate. So you totally weren't ID'd at that point in person. Okay, then how exactly do you claim security tied you to the group unless you really think they played back surveillance footage of the group showing this "running into them"? And then they just assumed that you were there when the wrongdoing that was worthy of a 1-year ban occurred? You legit think they watched you all the way back to the time that you entered the park to pull up your season pass details, based on having "run into them"? Or do you seriously think they scanned the database of all pass holder photos to ID you? You totally didn't do anything to get yourself banned for a year, and then told your mom that you knew nothing about it, that you had "run into" a group who got into trouble but you weren't a part of it? Because a 15yo would never.. NEVER!!.. lie to his/her parents about getting in trouble! Sorry, the whole story seems to be a non-story, where he got himself into trouble and won't fess up. The simplest explanation is almost always the most accurate. Edited to add: And to show what honest, rule-abiding park guests you are, you released video to the media showing your reckless disregard for the safety of other guests, via loose articles on the lift hill of The Racer (handheld video)?
  9. The photo was apparently taken from the drop-off lot at the base of the KI monument sign. The gray box is the electrical box for the sign/lighting over there and the green box next to it an electrical transformer.
  10. It seems quite clear that this plot of land is where the restaurant is going rather than razing and rebuilding Miss Keat's thru Palace Theater, *sigh*. They seem to be very clearly grading out a rectangular plot of land on the Antique Cars site, per aerial footage from WJW Fox 8 out of Cleveland. I'm personally not seeing why this needs to be a new restaurant with a new building where a family-friendly ride once stood, when there's plenty of space right there with some outdated buildings on it.
  11. Please point us to that "linked article" that even just implies a B&M defect as it's clearly not in this thread. The one in your OP is about a power outage which is a local issue in a foreign country. It has nothing to do with B&M. It's not even relevant to most people in Japan, let alone internationally.
  12. No, we shouldn't. You want people to agree with you, and your views will not change regardless of any concrete evidence presented to you. You just have this irrational hatred of B&M that is extremely troubling. Who has been seriously injured by a B&M ride, not through their own negligence, in recent history? By all accounts, the rider who trespassed over multiple fences warning of DANGER, instructing DO NOT ENTER, into a low zone on Raptor was responsible for that tragic incident; it wasn't a failure of park or manufacturer. On the other hand, @IndyGuy4KI notes what is at best a serious, devastating injury suffered at Top Thrill Dragster this season from a failure that should not have been possible. We pray she does recover from that. Even that incident, we have no evidence at this time to fault the manufacturer (INTAMIN, in that case).
