I was at SFNE on July 22nd and from one of the Hurricane Harbor lines, I noticed Batman missing 2 bolts, out of only 4 for that particular piece. I couldn't find a good picture of B:TDK, so I used BTR and circled the 2 bolts that are missing. It's in the area near the interlocking corkscrews. I'm sure it's not a huge huge deal, but it could certainly turn into one, and it leaves me wondering about SF maintenance. There was also 1 bolt missing each from 2 different supports. Thanks to Joel Rogers and CoasterGallery.com for the photo.
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.
I think it totally makes sense that they may be using a generic connecting plate, and the bolts weren't needed in those two holes. Come on, those bolts are big.
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.
Give the guy a break, he said in his opening post "I'm not sure if it's a huge deal" meaning he was just asking a question. I don't see the reason for a "jumping to conclusions" mat, I would wonder why 2 bolts were missing as well if there were empty holes...
