proboly... till CP/S&S/whoever figures out what was wrong... just like how Chaos at MiAdv affected other Chaos's when that went boomboom... if they figure it wasnt a design flaw then i am sure KBF and SFMM wont be down for long if they shut em down
Material flaw. Probably some bad metal, or heavy wind. ----------------- Al Gore - Pre Election... "These guys work for big business." Al Gore - Present Day.... "How much does your investment firm want to pay me???

I'm curious to see what effect this will have on not only the other Absolutely Insane rides at Knott's and Magic Mountain, but also the rides that were supposed to be installed this year at other parks as well.
We'll probably have to wait until there's more information tomorrow. No sense in speculating tonight. I doubt very much wind is a factor. The only thing unique about the environment there is that we had rain followed by freezing. 65 feet sounds a lot like the place where the first or second joint in the tower is.
Like I said, I guess we'll know more tomorrow.

LIke Jeff said there was rain and freezing around CP. Metal can be effected by temperature changes. Heat expands, cold contracts. If there was a drastic change in temperature the metal supports could break. Sorta like when you put a hot glass in cold water...it shatters.
I thought I'd never hear myself say this but for once, I'm thankful it's the offseason. If this were any normal operating day in the schedule, this could have been a major accident. ----------------- God please let SFKK get something in 2002. ANYTHING!!
