Yeah, I thought Halloween events are basically printing money at parks...weird to just completely cancel it.

Granted this is all twitter heresay, but what is being put out is that the producer of the event asked for more money in order to support his other venture (SAW escape room—-supposedly isn’t doing well) and MGM said no.

Looks like Freakling Bros. is going to be raking in the dough even more this year. Hopefully this will push some much needed business to Bonnie Screams, as well. That's a great haunt in a seriously awesome location that needs more traffic.

Every Friday and Saturday night after dusk Adventuredome is holding Neon Nights, the park has a DJ and club lighting. Worth checking out!

Some articles are stating that they don’t know if the ride was even in motion at the time so while the headline is obviously pretty alarming it seems like at this stage it could be anything from a guest flying out mid-inversion to someone getting sh*tfaced in the casino, going to the Adventuredome and then falling off of the ride platform. We don’t know much of anything yet.

and they're using TPR's YouTube video of Kristen and friend riding, to show the ride in the story!

I have cousins who live in Vegas, and she did tell me (since she knows how much I love coasters), that local news is saying the woman was a rider, and the coaster was in motion when she fell out. Apparently the woman was taken to the hospital in "serious" condition. . but that's all my cousin knew.

googling didn't really turn up anything more recent than the other day tho.

In the TPR video, it doesn't look like the restraints have a seatbelt attachment? Am I missing it?

If not, then this will become Exhibit A on why I don't mind that extra belt being connected.

That's correct, none of the El Loco coasters have seatbelts that go between the legs.
