Alton Towers Discussion Thread in Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, & Donkeys! Posted June 5, 2015 ^ Yeah, Ring Racer was also a very different set of circumstances. I'm talking about a ride that opened, took thousands upon thousands of riders, had an accident, and then the park removed the ride completely. It's a cut and dry scenario and I don't think there is one. The fact that we are even discussing this means we've reached a point in this discussion where there isn't much to talk about until some new data surfaces. Closest thing I can think of is Fujin Raijin II / Expoland. Coaster had accident, whole park closed, park reopened but coaster stayed closed, then at the end of the season the whole park closed for good. Still not completely cut and dry as other factors were involved, but if the accident had never occurred I believe the park and coaster would still be operating today.
