Forgot about the Brain Gill case. I feel bad for him, should have been a season ban at worse. I hope the park let him back in, or at least let him appeal the ban. Never give random people so much power, they go drunk with it.
The more I read, the more I feel disgusted. The chained gate part got me. That was clearly meant for emergency reasons, yet it was probably chained up by some supervisor because "those dang kids and needing to take a break"
Kinda throwing this thread back on topic, I really could see a cheap small park that is in a desperate need of a standout steel coaster being the first to cross the line and get a GH. Some parks that come to my mind are Alabama Adventure, any of the Fun Spots, or Texas Wonderland. Get something...
I am really shocked at the idea that B&M would even do a shuttle coaster. They have seemed afraid for years to do it, or just haven't been bothered to. Hope this leads to them rethinking how they do business.
