I feel sorry for Disney this year...first Mission space, next ToT, now California Screamin'. Good luck Disney parks with the rest of the 2005 season...

Yeah, that is unfortunate, but Disney can handle it. Some other parks wouldn't be able to stay open. Financially speaking.

That is another notch in Intamin's Belt fro wrecks...... I will have to say one thing about the less loved B&M coasters, they are a WHOLE lot more reliable.

Well, I can't speak for Intamin in other cases, but how often does B&M take a chance? This ride has 5 trains, 11 blocks, a double loading station, and a launch all together. Thats pretty complex, all to fit the customers requests.

In the event of a water landing...who are we kidding, you're screwed!

Kinda curious.... how did they get those aerial shots of the accident. Isn't DLR a "No Fly Zone"?

There are a couple of paragraphs written into "Roller Coasters, Flumes, and Flying Saucers" about how the Matterhorn nose and tail were disposable by design because of the constant bumping.

Maybe they climbed Supreme Scream with a 500x zoom.

News cameras from helicopters can get a pretty nice zoom from far away. Those shots could have come from thousands of feet away.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

In a related story, personal injury attorneys are now swarming DLR, handing out pamphlets on soft tissue injuries. :roll:
