SFWoA Trouble

Friday, June 13, 2003 8:57 PM
I haven't been there since X-Flight was introduced but when I went there was no wait for Mind Eraser so my brother and I decided to ride. When we got on the ride-ops didn't even check our harnesses to see if they worked and my brothers didn't. Him and I had to hold it down the intire ride and the ride-ops didn't even here us yelling at them to come and check it. By not working I mean it would go up about half way but not lock down but there. Has anyone else had this trouble with SFWoA?

I think you are full of crap actually... Would you care to explain how they apparently, didn't hear you yelling, when in fact the train passes two operators as it is slowly and quietly pulled out of the station. You and your brother would have been within two feet of an operator on either side of you as the train exited the platform. And how exactly did your harness not work? Did the laws of physics simply cease to exist on your particular ride? And in fact, wouldnt've your harness, and the two other seats in your car not have worked as well, as the entire cars are locked and un-locked all at once? Surely the physical locking mechanism on that one seat failed to engage. Darn those picky physics, working sometimes, and not others!

dustin as a former ride op your full of ****. No train ever leaves a station with out a visual eye check from the number 1 ride op on the right hand side and the number 4 ride of on the left hand side as the train leaves the station. At least that is what i have seen at all six flags parks and that is how it was at CP.

He's seen that one coaster condom commercial one too many times, and thought he could make up a great story much like it, except changed so he lives to tell about it. ;)

So, basically, you're posting something that supposedly happened to you in 2000?

Seriously...if you're going to make something up at least do some research and make it believable. Take a creative writing class or something.

Well, not really directly related, my restraint once popped up in the station on Lethal Weapon (SLC) at Movie World after they were locked down, but it locked down the next try (yes, mine was the only one to come loose :)), so in this seemingly unlikely situation described, the single restraint could have been having some fun of its own (and equal opportunity laws could have meant that all operators of the ride were both blind and deaf).

My brother and I were the only ones on it and they did not hear us. By not locking I mean it only locked about half way and thats it if you pushed it down it would go back up half-way and there was only two ride-ops and this was in 2001. The only thing the ride-op was doing was closing the other restraints. Oh, Well don't belive me.

Yea, but X-Flight was introduced in 2001, so apparently you weren't there in 2001, if you haven't been there since it was introduced.

Aah...this is stupid. Why am I even arguing?
