Im not saying your wrong but it might be NORMAL for those holes to be un-ocupied
Did someone recently purchase a jump to conclusions mat?
Prowler. Opens May,2 2009.
I was at SFNE this weekend too. I rode B:TDK for the firs time twice I felt safe to me.
No offense, but if it DIDN'T end up being safe, you might not be around long enough to notice.
Resident Arrow Dynamics Whore
Take another look at that photo. You can clearly count four bolts on the ride side and two on the left. identical there means a total of 8 bolts hold the two pieces together.
Come on! No one, not even Six Flags would endanger a rider's safety by overlooking missing bolts. Like a few others said, maybe it's normal. No maintenance worker would think nothing of it if the bolts were actually on the ground. When bolts are that large, they don't go far if or when they fall out, so if they aren't on the ground by their probable location, there is no reason for concern.
Also, if you were to notify the park's office, you would probably get some sacastic, generic answer to your concern, and you will hear some laughing as you walk away.
And if you were worried, why would you bring your concerns on here? No one on here is in any position of power to do anything about it. If you were so concerned, you should have gone to Guest Relations. They would have given you a form to fill out, which hopefully would've been passed onto maintenance.
Usually if holes don't quite align you can use a torch to open them up and fit bolts. By heating the steel it actually weakens it so B&M may not allow burning out the holes so they go unbolted.
