I don't know about Bill Cobb, but Curtis Summers, the guy that designed the Mean Streak, died, exactly one year after MS opened. Anyone know why?

He was hurt so badly when he found out that Mean Streak was getting trims, he lost the will to live. ;)

Yes Bill Cobb is dead. There's an ACE tribute in line for the JRS at SFoT.

Bill Cobb died before Texas Giant was built. In fact Mr. Cobb originally designed TG. When he passed on, Curtis Summers took over Mr. Cobb's inspired design and created the ride that SFoT now has.

...for one of the nicest things about mathematics, or anything else you might care to learn, is that many of the things which can never be, often are. You see it's very much like your trying to reach Infinity. You know that it's there, but you just don't
