Lets all not forget what happned on Chiller at SFGadv. How the train stalled during the roll. In that case it was simply a weight issue. A better example of it was when TTD got stuck at the top. Its a one in a million chance but it does happen.

Don't forget about Sirocco at Walibi Belgium getting stuck upside down! That was probably the 1st coaster ever that I heard about to get stuck in a loop! Also, due to a malfunction on the train which allowed itself to get wedged in the loop.

OMG ! Being suspended with only a lapbar is scary !


This is the first time i see a picture of a train with lapbar stuck in a loop.


I always wondered if lapbars were really safe, I think i've got the answer now ! All coasters should be retrofitted with lapbars, no headbanging anymore !
