Plus… the Ultimate was probably borderline unsafe from jankiness (so I hear).
I think it would be if it wasnt inspected enough. I know they used to track walk it daily and if any damage was found they'd fix it. Apparently the ride used to be so violent it would crack the steel track, and it'd have to be welded. On some of the urbexers pictures you can see where they've welded cracks and welded plates in areas. If they didnt check it so often those could have become lethal.
I remember riding it as a child and a wheel flew off during the ride. Heard a tinkling sound of metal flying around and then saw a wheel come off and roll off at high speed into the trees. We told the ride ops and they shut it down immediately. This was in the late 90's.
Really sad to see this unique ride go. I rode it a lot over the years, it was one of our local parks so we'd go there a few times a year. I think the park must be winding down for being sold off, the way the parks been run makes no sense really. They're not investing anything, only taking stuff away.
Is disappointing to see a lot of enthusiasts say they didnt get round to going etc. Its people not bothering that makes parks die sadly.
