What did everyone think of the show Terror Rides on MSNBC tonight? I thought it was a pretty good show but they left out a lot of details when they covered accidents. Also when did SUE get moved to Cedar Point? LOL

I laughed when they put S:UE as being at CP. Gives good publicity I quess. The GP will be like "Where is it?!"

It was alright. They got their facts mixed up poorly.

Yeah, they made alot of mistakes, and I'm pretty sure you will never see the host on any coasters! It also used some footage I have seen before. All and all it was okay though.
Life is a roller coaster...ride it!

It's not like it's a Fox or UPN network! You'd think NBC could get the facts straight! Thats just screwed up that they let that many get by.

I'm really temtped to write to them, because I thought the part on safety was one of the most sensationalist pieces of garbage I have ever seen. They start talking about how as rides are getting bigger, faster, and scarier, they are also getting more dangerous. Then they start listing examples, and the first thing they mention is....a waterslide!? WTF?! After that, they show an accident on a himalaya-type ride (at a carnival, mind you), the Demon at Great America, and the rapids ride that overturned at SFoT. What the hell do any
of those have to do with the giant coasters being built today?!
