Steel Dragon 2000


Recommended Posts

So I was going about RCDB and I had seen that Steel Dragon 2000 at Nagashima Spa Land is still SBNO? The ride has actually been closed longer then flashback at SFMM. I know they had an accident a LONG time ago but is that what is still keeping the ride closed?



Matt - Thought you guys might know the answer to this, its killing me.

Yes...the Japanese are very careful and an accident like that will close that ride for a very long time. They also had an incident on their kiddie coaster last summer and that was closed for sometime as well.

^^^thanks for responding, It amazes me how long its been closed, I mean here we have a guy fly out on superman ride of steel and yet the ride opens that same season after a few light modifications.



Matt - very interesting to see what they do in the future.

see not that I care but that just amazes me. :shock: August 23rd 2003 is a very long time. If that was the case for a coaster like that in the states we would Freak.


Is it the government that is keeping it closed or the actual amusement park itself?



Matt - Boogels my mind still.

Neither, its the safety people. Would a park spends millions of dollars on a coaster that runs only 3 years and throw it away? No. It will probably open once people forget about it. Probably some time in the next decade.
