I went to SFKK today and Chaos was running at full speed. I was there Saturday and Tuesday and saw mechanics working under the ride both days. Break Dance, another flat ride, seemed to be in sync with Chaos, operating-wise, and I know break dance opened Wednesday, so maybe Chaos did too. Anyway, anyone else have updates from other parks?

I rode chaos at HP last Friday...8/3. If they did close it down after the accident...It wasn't for long.

My favorite Coaster is named after Poop

Just because of one accident, all the parks aren't going to scrap the rides. According to a news report, they cost $500,000 each. Park's paid for the rides and so they want to get their money back.

They only closed the Chaos rides at Cedar Fair Parks.

Actually, Six Flags closed their Chaos rides the night of the accident. I think they all would be open by now.

Hersheypark never closed it. However, it didn't open until noon the day after the accident.

According to AMUSEMENT BUSINESS, the accident at Michigan's Adventure was caused by a failure of the bolts on the center hub. Chance says that the ride is safe as long as it has been "maintained and operated to the manufacturers recomendations in manuals and service bulletins."
Was the ride maintained properly, or was there a problem with the quality of the fasteners? It wouldn't be the first time mis-marked bolts have caused problems. We'll have to wait for the final report.
