Zoomerang riders need fire department to exit at Lake Compounce

Posted Thursday, June 14, 2001 12:28 PM | Contributed by Sue

As if things weren't already bad enough with the death at Lake Compounce, riders of Zoomerang, a Vekoma Boomerang, were stuck in the cobra roll. Judging by the report, it appears that one does not have the retrofitted walkway along the cobra roll.

Read about it from the Hartford Courant.

Uh oh... I'm wondering... Maybe Mackey (or Markey.. I'm not sure) is sabotaging this thing. It is a small park close to Washington.

I'm just kidding, but this is bait for conspiracy theorists EVERYWHERE.

Not Zoomerang. ;)

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Ohhhh, that's got to be hurting the park, not that the Zoomerang was really dangerous or anything, it's just that it may look bad on the park's record, with two bad things, in days of each other.

They are pretty stupid for keeping this attraction open in the first place when they had to have known about the other incidents.

Now who wants to talk crap about SF? It happens everywhere!

At this point I think there needs to be a recall on all "Va-coma" Boomerangs. They're making the entire industry look bad! ;) *** This post was edited by DWeaver on 6/14/2001. ***
