If I was seriously injured, and the investigation pointed to poor maintenance, then I'd certainly sue. As much as we don't like seeing suits being placed against our favorite parks, when we ride an attraction we expect that the park/touring company properly maintained it. Rides certainly don't fall over if they're assembled and checked over properly.

well, the actual ride fell off it's footings. The gondola didn't fall, and the structure didn't collapse.

Was the ride not standing properly? Then it collapsed!

From the info I've seen it slipped off it's blocking, definitely not a good thing. They were lucky it stayed upright.

the g-force has 4 L riggers that stands on blocks preventing it from tipping over. i beleve the ride failed due to abuse.. there are two kinds of rides there are those that can travel and there are those that should stay put. in my opinion the g-force was not a travelling ride.. so many parts to set up and matience is a daily job...i read all the reports
