Quoted from Dodson130 on RRC...
I was at Six Flags yesterday (9-8) and Thunder River was shut down half way
through the day and I kept hearing people talking about some people getting
stuck on the ride or something. Then after they drained it, I some a boat
stuck on one of the logs that make the waves. Does anyone know what happened
or if anyone got hurt? The rest of the day, a helicopter was circling the
Wow thats weird. I was there today(9/9) and it was drained and shut down. I
wondered what was wrong...anyone hear anything about it?

There was a boat stuck about halfway through the course, you could see it clearly form the Mr. Freeze queue. It looked as if they drained the water while the boat was sitting there... it probably got snagged on one of those logs and the water was drained so they can free it. No one from the park seemed too concerned and there weren't any maitenance workers to be seen, so I doubt anyone was hurt.

Alright apparently a pump burst on Thunder River on Saturday. Nobody was hurt.
