Battlestar Galactica roller coaster will reopen this month

Posted Wednesday, February 2, 2011 11:41 AM | Contributed by Jeff

After almost a year of being grounded, the world's tallest duelling roller coaster, the Battlestar Galactica, will resume operations on February 21. The fault that closed the ride for nearly a year was attributed to fatigue cracks detected in a welded component of the seat's support structure, the part that attaches the coaster's seat to its frame.

In retrospect, it probably wasn't a good idea for the company to hire cylons to do the welding....

Tekwardo, we'll see; Asia is in my travel plans for 2011, but Singapore wasn't. However, I might be able to engineer a stopover...

I just want you to know, you're my hero. In a world full of coaster geeks that take it way too seriously, you go and do and enjoy it and don't make a huge deal about it. Have fun and take loads of pix when you do make it there.
