  1. Legal Implications And Consequences: http://www.kansascity.com/news/article96777077.html Article is HIGHLY recommended.
  2. Seriously, though, that's part of the problem. The park is owned and operated, supposedly, by a tax-exempt non-business organization.
  3. The fact the park's management couldn't run a lemonade stand profitably?
  4. The Washington Monument will remain CLOSED for the next TEN DAYS for inspections: http://wtop.com/dc/2016/08/washington-monument-to-remain-closed-for-next-10-days/
  5. The Washington Monument will not be open today, either....
  6. Two Women In Same Raft As Ten Year Old Boy, Father Speak Out: http://abcnews.go.com/US/women-raft-10-year-boy-killed-kansas-waterslide/story?id=41480735&google_editors_picks=true
  7. Last time, it's believed that increased air conditioning use caused a voltage drop which then tripped a circuit breaker.
  8. And the Washington Monument had an elevator cable break yesterday. 84 people had to walk down nearly 50 stories. It remains closed today. http://wtop.com/dc/2016/08/elevator-problem-closes-washington-monument-3/
  9. SFOG's woodie was designed with backwater flooding in mind. Coney of Ohio, is, however, subject to riverine flooding, which could be higher velocity, and cause far more damage.
  10. Great American Scream Machine at SFOG floods frequently. It does just fine. The wood coasters with steel supports don't seem to do as well in floods. Several that experienced floods didn't survive to be ridden again...
  11. http://www.foxnews.com/health/2016/08/15/parasite-closes-popular-alabama-water-park.html
  12. Two Louisville Women, Alleged Water Park Yeggs, Apprehended In Possession of Nearly $1100 In Property Liberated From Beach Chairs, Assortment of Credit Cards: http://www.wdrb.com/story/32762491/police-two-louisville-women-caught-with-stolen-property-totaling-more-than-1000
  13. ...which apparently was 9AM this morning, Monday. Another heat advisory today, too. Stay tuned.
  14. WTOP: A tripped circuit breaker. Perhaps the heat. NPS says the Monument will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so.
  15. At the end of the day, the lockers are cleared. If the stuff is not redeemed, I'd presume it is either itself given to charity or auctioned and the proceeds given to charity. In some states and localities, unclaimed personalty goes to the respective government. See also unclaimed baggage at airports.
  16. Black ones, white ones, yellow ones Tall ones, fat ones, small ones... Gee! See, I am sliding off the deep end...
  17. Yep. CLOSED. Again: http://wtop.com/dc/2016/08/washington-monument-closed-today-elevator-problems-ensue/
