Just saw some nice aerial shots of SFMM on the news. Apparently a single engine plane landed at a golf course near SFMM, and according to the television news reporter, the plane came "dangerously close to the park's roller coaster

So this finally settles the debate! Cedar Point= 16 coasters, Magic Mountain= 1 coaster. CP wins! ;>)

the plane came "dangerously close to the park's roller coaster"!
That really narrows it down. (I know this isn't your saying, but it is what the report said.)
So you believe that you are studying us, then kindly explain why you are the ones trapped in your seats.

The news here in Pittsburgh reported the plane landing near "Disney's Magic Mountain coaster."
From the pictures, it looks like X was indeed the coaster in question, and the landing site was definitely not far from the park. It makes me wonder how close is "dangerously close."

It was probably a kamikaze goon from Cedar Point hoping to dash SFMM's record to peices. ;) I'm blatantly joking, I just thought it would be humorous to add in. :)
PS- Was the pilot ok?

That plane could have been 10 miles away and still been "dangerously" close. That's how the media works when planes are involved.
