Additional supports on SOB


Recommended Posts

I have been to the park 5 times this season, but just noticed this for the first time on Friday.

Could have been the way the sun was hitting it...but I noticed this on the track that you go upon after coming out of the

first drop. There are numerous additional metal supports under the track that are a 'brick red' color.

Makes you wonder if Cedar Fair is trying to do more and more to make the ride either safer, smoother or both.

Is this something that has been added recently?

A lot of those may be original from when it was built as there are numerous parts throughout the ride where the structure is reinforced by steel. When the ride reopened in 2007 after being closed for the accident, additional steel support was added to the rose bowl by order of a state recommendation following the report the department of agriculture issued following the accident.
