Mr. Hydes was called the Edge at SFGAM. When of the cars was being lifted to the top and the cable snapped and the car plunged to the ground. All on board escape with minor injuries I believe. The ride was then retorfited with anti roll back thing to prevent it from happen again. The kids on the ride when it happen had on shirts that said I went over the Edge and survied.
Mr. Hydes was working last week, though sporatically. It seemed fine up until the transfer to the lower track, when our heads were violently jolted. That was my first ride on MH, and I seem to recall Demon Drop being a bit smoother when transferring.
The only sense on paper is for Six Flags to buy them. Demon Drop would be rebuilt at another park, and Mr Hyde's components would be divided up among, let's see Great Adventure, I think Magic Mountian has one, where ever else.
Not a brain buster here. Mr Hyde is in good shape, it just wasn't maintained like Demon Drop. I am sure if Cliff's Park for example offered $350,000 for both, and did just that, assemble one and 'inventory parts' one, they would take it.
If there were more duplicate rides at Cedar Point and Geauga Lake, then more would be sold. The beauty of the 2 parks is that now Ohio guests have about 120 rides to choose so close buy.
