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

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.
