This seat that seems to be the hot topic, was it just that one end seat that had the possible clearance issues or was it the entire cabin that was at risk with taller riders? At this point, I should probably read through the thread, may answer several of my questions; I'm sure I'm missing some details.

 

Just that end seat had the clearance issue.

 

Hopi Hari usually do not operate all 5 sections. Normally they keep section 1 stoped up at the top of the tower. Don't really know why...

Usually SFA kept car #2 stopped at the bottom with the carrier at the top.

 

Looking at the video it appears that the locks on that particular harness were completely removed/disabled as it shouldn't be freely moving like that even when the car is at ground level ready for the next group of riders...with that in mind the victim in this case should've known something wasn't right the minute she sat down & attempted to pull down & lock the restraint.I would've simply gotten out of the seat & alerted the ops to the fact that the restraint didn't appear to be locking at all.

All off the videos I've seen covering the story are pretty creepy, despite not being able to understand what people are saying. I hope that Intamin is part of the investigation even if it isn't their fault. I think these tower rides have gotten a lot of bad publicity to the point where blatantly obvious modifications could be made to restore some confidence in riders.

 

Also, on the topic about cars being out of service, I always thought they didn't use a car if wind was blowing into it.

Did anyone else face palm when they saw Speedy Gonzalez on an Italian pizza stand? Considering they SPEAK A LATIN LANGUAGE there, I would have assumed they understood it wasn't Italian

 

If a Mexican mouse wants to sell pizza in a country where they speak Portuguese, he can do that.

Does anyone know what the operating schedule is for this park, i am looking at going in Early December, which i thought would be there summer season. There is nothing on there calendar for November or December, is that because they haven't announced it, or because the park is closed?

technfxrick,

 

 

I can't confirm for you this doubt, because the park has not released the December's schedule. But, I think - definitely -, that they will open on thursdays for sundays (or wednesdays for sundays). Check before! I hope I helped you.

 

Good news: When you come here, the new area of the Justice League is already open. It will open in the end of October ("Thinkwell" is working on it)
