I would guess part of the Rattler problems come from the trains... It originally opened with Morgan trains, which were quickly replaced with the current PTC with headrests. So, you got heavier trains that can't turn as well on a ride that is probably not built for them. What a recipe for disaster!

PTC's + twisted layout= major pain<cough Roar east,Gwazi,HP Wildcat cough>.

I would bet the cushy PTC's are much more comfy than the plastic Morgans.

Which means what? Care to enlighten us or is this just another bash at Six Flags for the heck of it response?

My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.

I'd stack up the wood-coaster maintenance at a few (several) SF parks against almost ANY of that found at CF parks or the former PPs.
I will agree that PTCs are more comfortable than Morgans because of the seats and restraints but I also think there are certain coasters that big, heavy PTCs do not run well on. Believe it or not (and trust me, I HATE to admit this), the Riverside Cyclone was a much better ride with the Morgans compared to the new PTCs, although I also think the coaster was maintained better before SF got a hold of the park.
