Awesome. Does anyone have any opinions on which hotel at PA is best? Also, do they all have gyms?

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Shambhala has closed early today because two metal bars have fallen from the top of the lift hill structure (next to the splash) during operation.

Considering it's been open for just two weeks, I don't think PA will allow Shambhala to operate until they find what caused this. :?r

On a side note Baco has also been closed today because of technical difficulties (aka: Intamin curse :lmao: )

Donkeys are my way of life!

As my dear friend Oriolat says, I was taking some pictures from Shambhala's splash when this piece has fallen just 3 meters (10 feets) away from me with a very loud clang. I warned a park worker immediately and she alerts an operator that took the part out of the place.

10 minutes later, the ride was closed for all the day and a few operators and managers from park were reviewing the lift's structure and base. Then, apparently it fell a second piece similar but slightly curved.

Here you have another photo taken by my mobile phone:

The pieces look too slender to be a part of the main structure, maybe part of the stairs or some secondary machinery strapping.

Glad no one was injured.

Looks to be pretty greasy so perhaps some part of chain channel? (no idea what's it's actually called)
