I heard about anther Chaos accident in Jersey this weekend. This is the 3rd one I can remember in recent years. Who makes the Chaos them? Do you think they will shut down all of them for inspection? Do you think these accidents are from neglect from the park and poor maintenance.
Playa: To my knowledge, the restraints for the Chaos rides are released automatically or through the control panel. While there probably is a manual release for the seats, I've never seen it used during normal ride operation.
That article is a bunch of crap from some people that want money. Believe me the ride never flipped her with the lose restraint. The state is not involved at all and the ride is allowed to reopen when the park wants it to. *** Edited 6/22/2005 1:02:22 AM UTC by medusa3232***
medusa, how exactly do you know this? If your restraint opened up on an inverting ride, you'd be scared to death. Even if the ride didn't flip them upside down, even rocking from side to side could cause injury for someone when they're attempting to hold on for dear life. Wait for the results of the investigation by people who know more than you before you judge.
People who know more than me? I know all there is to know. All I am going to say is that I do work there. I know alot more than you. There is a good chance the ride will be open with the park on Thursday. *** Edited 6/22/2005 1:27:20 AM UTC by medusa3232***
The ride stalling and having to be jogged down, could've been a balance issue or a simple fault, nothing much to worry about and the cars should be parked and locked into position before the restraints are opened.
