(7/8/05) A local paper reports that the lift chain on Falken snaped last night causing the train to slide backwards slightly before the emergency braking system caught it and allowing for what was left of the chain to slide down and pile up at the front of the train, spattering the riders in the front with a little oil and grease. There were no reported injuries.
Damn, that's a bummer. That ride was very good!
I hope they get it back up and running soon!
