Posted Thursday, July 10, 2014 9:07 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Park officials and witnesses described seeing a large branch fall across the tracks at about 6 p.m. Monday, causing the partial derailment, but a spokesman for the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, Peter Melton, said an entire tree -- estimated at 40 feet high -- had actually fallen.

Two Six Flags Magic Mountain visitors who were riding the Ninja roller coaster when it struck a downed tree Monday sued the park, seeking unspecified damages.

From the LA Times: Investigation continues, lawsuit filed.

Ninja was going to be renamed the twin pines coaster in the future, now they have to go with lone pine coaster...BTTF reference, not that it really makes sense

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.
