Only problem is you have to register to read it. But the idea of the article is that the park wants it open by the end of the month .... WOW! if they pull that one off I will be shocked since NJ is notorious for slow approvals.
It also explains that the liner coming loose was the cause of the incident and that the parts had to come from Switzerland to fix the ride. So there is the what happened from the park's mouth. *** Edited 7/20/2005 8:06:30 PM UTC by dragonoffrost***
Updates about Kingda Ka will be posted on the park's Web site, perhaps as soon as this week, Siebeneicher said.
A note on the park's Web page apologizing for the closing of the ride has been unchanged since June 14.
"We realize that our guests' expectations for this record-breaking coaster are especially high," wrote Rick McCurley, vice president and general manager of Great Adventure. "We apologize for any disappointment or inconvenience this temporary closure may cause."
I'll believe the update when I see it. Great news, though, and hopefully Kingda Ka will open soon.
I am not saying that this is new info I was just pointing out that they are going to the press now with the info. And that those who recently were saying again that it was a cable issue have been debunked by the park in the press. *** Edited 7/20/2005 10:02:05 PM UTC by dragonoffrost***
