Anyone ridden this is looks like of odd?
Your right. After looking at that picture you posted, it was still stuck on the life. WHY? Just my opinion, but isn't this a stupid design just asking for trouble? Shouldn't they have a back-up power ready for just a situation like this?
This coaster also only has 1 train so no chance of hitting anther train. *** Edited 6/11/2007 1:10:53 PM UTC by Crashmando***
Little proofreading, please.
The train completes the inline twist and you drop thru the station and up the vertical lift but the train does not engage. Instead it freefalls backwards, rockets thru the station and back up the drop. Then you drop again thru the station and up the lift again. This time the train does engage and the lift slowly lowers you back into the station.
The very first time Mike [Bassistist] and I rode we made it thru the entire cycle up until the lift engages the second time. We started to lower back to the station and suddenly stopped, some 120-feet or so up. We were stuck there in the vertical position, sun in our eyes, for 15-20 mins while they waited for a maintenance guy to reset the ride so we could be lowered back down to the station.
The ride reopened and we rode a second time without problem however the next group of riders experienced the same problem. The ride was then closed for a few hours. We never got another ride that day.
