  1. It's the best time to get maximum media exposure on the next day--Friday--when audiences are big and in the mood for leisure time activities--like amusement parks.
  2. The boy is in critical condition...with an apparent head injury. So sad.
  3. ...or, they've learned by benchmarking. Terp, using a word now passé in corporatespeak.
  4. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-kansas-waterslide-decapitated20160810-story.html
  5. VERY upsetting article: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/08/10/boy-decapitated-on-kansas-waterslide-passengers-claim-it-was-clearly-unsafe.html Summary omitted. Click at your own risk.
  6. No. The exact opposite. Until the investigation is complete, we know next to nothing. And eye witness accounts often turn out to be wildly inaccurate.
  7. Huh? Leading causes of deaths on rides are guest misconduct or operator error/negligence.... I wasn't aware the proximate cause of death here had yet been determined.
  8. Also, Shockwave, Paramount's King Dominion, Batman, Six Flags Over Georgia...the list is nearly endless...
  9. Ride CLOSED for season. More: http://fox4kc.com/2016/08/09/interview-from-july-2014-with-verruckt-designer-we-had-a-great-team-involved-in-doing-this/
  10. This Sunday: Amusement Park: $5 Ride All Day. Water Park: $10 All Day. Combo: $15. Dry Park: noon to 8. Water Park: noon to 6. Pricing integrity thrown to the wind...
  11. More likely the request of their and/or their insurance company's learned counsel... It's not strange they are stonewalling. It's strange they are saying so...very strange.
  12. There is a woman in Louisville who will never, ever forget Superman: Tower of Power, as much as she would like to.
  13. Europe recognizes the role of puffery and satire in advertising. The USA, by contrast, does so far more sparingly. Oddly, the European libel laws are far more constricting than in the USA.

  14. No criminal charges. Park now stonewalling media: http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/08/08/boy-killed-in-accident-on-worlds-tallest-water-slide-at-kansas-park.html Strange PR move. Very strange.
  15. From today's print Washington Post: a. "According to local TV station KSHB, however, "more than one water park guest" said the harnesses on the ride were not working Sunday." b. "Originally, the slide required riders be at least 14-years old and 54-inches tall, but the age requirement was deemed unnecessary and eliminated, USAToday reported in 2014." c. "It's nice to know that nobody's ever going to come out of the ride" Henry told the Star." "Henry reportedly chose Kansas because of its lax height restrictions." There were reports of an injured woman that the park did not mention.
  16. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2016/08/07/boy-dies-kansas-waterslide/88373128/ "safe dangerous" Minimum age: 14.

  18. Magic words, those: "up to." A 10 second reduction qualifies...
  19. SOME teens.... Terp, who really despises over-generalizations.
  20. ....baths...2o,ooo people...many of whom need one. Terp, regurgitating.
  21. The Cliffhanger Falls Waterslide is scheduled to open Saturday, with SIX, yes SIX public operating days left, according to the court filed park schedule, local legal sources say.
