http://www.theomahachannel.com/news/3678158/detail.html Pretty scary, I had just gone on that ride a few weeks before this happened. For those who dont know, Funplex is a small little park close to where I live. Its a water park, go carts and some rides. Shame that this had to happen
The grownup in me likes the prospect of fun, but the kid in me is suicidal over what a fat bastard I'll become. -Peter, Family guy.

It isn't an Octopus, it's a Spider.

(Octopus has eight straight sweeps. Spider only has six, but they are curved.)

It looks from the video I saw like the sweep broke in the customary location. I can't believe this is still happening; this has been a known issue on the Spider for thirty years.

I never realized the difference between an Octopus and a Spider. Thanks, RideMan.
