S:UF "Flying Wrench" Video?

Monday, November 29, 2004 11:19 AM
Does anyone have the video with the "flying wrench" at SFGAdv.? I know I had seen it a few months ago but now I can't find it.

For those who don't know, someone left a wrench on S:UF at SFGAdv. while it was running. When the train was traveling through the barrel-roll, the wrench went FLYING into a support.

Thank God no one was hurt but this could have been a major lawsuit. There were no people on the train but there were in the queue. I was just wondering if anyone still had the video.

Ah... thanks for the thread redman.

I did a search but couldn't find it. I guess I was just searching for the wrong thing.

It's pathetic that this happened. Anyone working on the ride should know better. Someone could have been seriously injured. Look at how fast that thing hits the support. Imagine if that hit someone's head.

Yeah, but was it ever confirmed that it was indeed a tool left on the ride or is that just what popular speculation concluded?

Let's not confuse the issue with "facts". :)

I have a tendency to do that.

Consider it a character fault. :)

I watched it in slow motion and it is really hard to tell. Personally, I think it's a wrench just because of it's size. Also, if you look REAL closely it kind of takes on the shape of one.

Another reason why I think it was a tool is because I really don't know what else it could be.

Once again it is proven that if you give it time, real life is much funnier than any joke you can make up! Either that or I'm the only one who gets it ...

If i remember correctly someone who was there said the train was just put online?

If so i would not doubt that it was a tool.

Saw it happen this season at my home park.

It probably happens more often than it should.

It doesn't make sense that the "wrench" would remain where it was placed on the train through the whole course, only to fly off on the zero-g roll. Doesn't it make more sense that the "wrench" was left on the track of the zero-g roll and the train hit it, sending it into the support?

If you listen closely you can hear a clank BEFORE the object in question hits the pole.

Moosh: I never thought of that. Maybe they were doing work on the track and not the train.
