  1. Let's add Silver Bullet and Hangtime to this list and we'll be all set https://www.knotts.com/scheduled-ride-closures
  2. I agree with the sad aspect of it, however I'm also thankful for clear video proof of more and more accidents these days (as eye witness accounts can be dramatically different depending on person.) Similar to black boxes on major airlines.
  3. Along with seat belt backup, that tower also 'tilts back' prior to (or just entering) brake run so high G's are pushing body straight down into seat. It really surprised me Icon has their tower hit brakes still tilted forward, which puts extreme amount of force on the exact portion of OTSR's which allowed guest to slide out. Prior to accident I assumed it also tilted back during drop, but nope. *of course we'll only know reasoning after full investigation. Video and picture clearly shows how high OTSR's were prior to ride, and moment he slid out was when braking started.
  4. Not sure but might be a YouTube copyright issue, maybe for press/media days they have it turned off.
  5. I can understand that. It looks cool to watch, but I'd rather pay (and tip) a human making my drink. I'd go find a real person over a robot, even if it required waiting longer. Just a personal preference, maybe from having worked in the service industry.
  6. Yep also at: http://abc7.com/uncategorized/fire-erupts-on-colossus-ride-at-magic-mountain/299887/
  7. I'm glad she survived such a horrible tragedy. At least she had enough time to pull out her cell phone, open Twitter app, and post that status before death took over.
  8. Oh, and CalOSHA is fine with Xcel snapping cables once or twice a year during 80+ MPH launches... but Seeker is way too unsafe to run?
  9. I wonder the same things... Seems odd they are okay to run in all other states, except CA. Sad to see it go, I enjoyed the ride.
  10. Was wondering the same thing... Knott's still hasn't re-opened. Just been sitting there, no work being done, for a long time.
  11. Wow, don't tell her about the thousands of people who are going to die today in car crashes. Or does she never leave the house? Gotta stay safe!
  12. GREAT update!! Can't wait to checkout the new Boardwalk area and of course the log ride too- thanks for posting! Also was checking for a Windseeker update, did they have more issues? Other parks open theirs?
  13. Glad the bail is set that high, I don't feel sorry for that idiot at all!! He's at work, not some backyard playground of his. Grow up.
  14. I think 21 for food service incase alcohol is served, but 18 for cashiers/non-bar/gift shop positions. Although, 18 does seem young for loss prevention & security.
  15. Here's a good overall video of the Carnival Triumph event (far from a "Tragedy", but hey, had to have a T word to go with "Triumph"). It was made by a passenger on board, without all the media hype:
  16. Most passengers said the actual crew on the ship were doing the best the could and very helpful. Meaning the "hourly/front line" workers, I'm not defending Carnival or the executives at all.
  17. Looking great- what a perfect way to enter the park, through a coaster inversion ...and congrats traincrossin on being part of the opening crew!
  18. Wow!! Those are some great pictures... glad you enjoyed the park with small crowds. Look forward to the other reports & pics, thanks for posting!
  19. Almost every caption has a negative statement, weather it be about the photo itself or comparing it to another attraction that is 'worse than' or 'better than' the item photographed. I found this to be one of the most depressing trip reports I've ever read on TPR.
  20. lmao... I'm starting to see all the "backwards" comments more and more now too. Gotta love the GP. (But yes, CP was just asking for it when they edited the video that way)
  21. I agree! Uhh... I guess you've never been in the ocean (or dive into water and land wrong)? There's a sea floor that is much more painful then any theme park flowrider. Waves crash and body slam you into water when actually surfing. http://www.waveloch.com/safety Yes, I know I missed the humor in your first post. Had to defend flow riders though, they are not painful and very fun!
