He's out of hospital now but still "recovering at home".
It also mentions that LWV have said the ride will be closed "indefinitely" (unsurprisingly).
Not to be taken too seriously!
We all enjoy praising or condemning a ride's colour scheme, so what's your favourite of each colour?
Red - Extreme Rusher
Blue - (half of) Twisted Colossus
Yellow - Superman Something Spanish (I'm going to count the colour of the rails here)

Expedition GeForce - one I've been massively looking forward to, and had very high expectations for it.

Not many other folks seem to have crowned Hyperion #1 which I found a little surprising. I was genuinely astonished to see people saying they thought Shambhala was better.
