    Seems to be a trend in my region as of lately with station collisions, first Steel Vengeance and now this. Not sure what caused this but it's kind of early, though I know this is one of the more common types of incidents to be had.

    I think that it should be determined that T3 is obviously unsafe and should be demolished at once in the interest of safety. ;) Who's with me?

    Considering the apparent quality of the coaster, a little crash or two shouldn't make much of a difference on the ride experience.

    (and yes, I checked if anybody got injured before posting that joke)

    I'm surprised more manufacturers don't implement crashes into their designs, they are so underused as ride elements.

    Actually it's smoother than an RMC thanks to the new restraints.

    Oh! Interesting! These new KumbaK trains must be working their magic on SLCs!

    I was being sarcastic. The ride is horrendous. The new trains may have gotten rid of the headbanging but the ride is still shaky as :emoji_zipper_mouth:, the transitions are terrible, and the restraint crushes your thighs.

    Oh... the reception of SLCs really doesn't make me too confident for Infusion in August, although I reckon it might be better than everyone says it is.

    Infusion sits squarely in the middle of the SLCs. It's not good, but it's nowhere near as bad as a lot of others.

    I don't hate it, but it's fine if you keep your head forward, clear from the restraints. It still hurts your shoulders, but it's not as bad.
