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.

Love me a good well designed VEKOMA!
It's been closed this long?!?!
Wow, that sounds seriously SCARY!. Thank GOD no one was hurt!
About time. Now to figure out how to get back there...
In retrospect, it probably wasn't a good idea for the company to hire cylons to do the welding....
I'm sure you'll get there before the end of the year, Richard ;).
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.
Anyone got a Viper I can fly over and check it out?
Nope sorry, all I have is a Raptor.
