For what seems like the 10,000th time: THERE IS NO LAW IN CALIFORNIA MANDATING OTSR'S.

Tim Burkhart was full of crap at WCB.

Ah, well now we have a source-backed, cited, and apparently definitive answer. I guess we can put this one to bed now. :roll:

I think they might keep the cars and use them again (lab bar ones). They want people to once again talk about how scary the ride is (backwards or forwards) and the only way the ride can be *scary* facing forward is with the lap bars.

But he ( Burkhart ) never said anything of the sort. He said it was Six Flags decision to add the OTSR to Revolution, and that the ride can no longer operate any other way, period. It has nothing to do with any law, and he never even hinted that was the case.

Didn't the LA times already report that after one month of re-opening they will continue to race both sides one forwards and one backwards?

^ The Times blog did say something about the ride returning one track to forward operation at some point, but I don't recall if they gave any specific timeframe for doing so.

The article posted that they would return one side forward when the hype died down, within six months or so....with what they said...
