    Yah, yikes.


    Update at 9:10 p.m.: Our Tanya Eiserer spoke with Carmen Brown of Arlington, who says she was next in line to ride the Texas Giant behind the woman who fell to her death this evening. She told Tanya she witnessed the woman being strapped into the ride. She was sitting next to her son.


    The woman, said Brown, “basically tumbled over and you just see her son [go], ‘Ahhh.’ They didn’t secure her right. One of the employes from the park — one of the ladies — she asked her to click her more than once, and they were like, ‘As long you heard it click, You’re OK.’ Everybody else is like, ‘Click, click, click.’ Hers only clicked once. Hers was the only one that went down once, and she didn’t feel safe, but they let her still get on the ride. …


    “That could have been me.”


    Brown said the woman’s young son was in a seat in front of his mother.


    “We heard her screaming,” Brown said. “We were like, ‘Did she just fall?’”

    This report can't be right. Those trains don't "click" because they use a hydraulic locking system. No employee would ever say "As long as you heard it click" because you'd NEVER hear it click. Now they are just making stuff up.

    Exactly. Here begins the part of the aftermath where the media lies for the sake of ratings. Disgusting.

    My deepest condolences to all those involved.

    It thens zoom through the station heading straight into a tall 'Bomerang'. "The design of the Boomerang is kept secret as it will produce a lot of shrieks," says a senior AMC official.


    I'm sorry, but I don't recall cobra rolls being a Vekoma secret. It seems like B&M stole the element's design from deep inside corporate headquarters.



    Forgot the smilie.

  3. Will this drop get the record of steepest? Near the top, the train will be moving downward at a greater angle than Takabisha?

    The drop has an angle of 360°, making it a full circle--however it's clearly 180° .

    And the drop really doesn't have any definitive steepness since it's an inversion.


    You'd think the steepness record would go to the Screamin' Squirrels (180°), but those actually do not "drop". 180° is moving a straight horizontal direction.

    Or inversions just don't count as drops.
