Sure!... In fact, I think Intamin should give it a go.

Just slap a" sometimes a car might not clear the launch which is perfectly normal" sign on it and it should be good to go.

A further refinement of the Cannon Coaster of 1906

If Intamin doesn't, Premier will for sure.

If its not broken, don't touch it.

I've always said we need more life belts and Gimbals on rides nowadays.

I call Cedar Point my home park even though I live in the Chicago Suburbs.

Shoot the Riders opening delayed. Park says, "the bullets didn't fit the barrel".

Loved the term "life belt"...that's the best you can hope for, survival!

If Jules Verne designed an amusement park ride, this is exactly what he would have come up with.

That ride looks perfectly safe. What could possibly go wrong?
