Oh, I have to disagree! Mean Streak is horrible and has absolutely nothing going for it, but at least you can get through it without breaking the skin! SoB is horribly painful, but Mean Streak is much less painful, not to mention boring. (IMO, IMHO, etc....)

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Maybe there really is an arsonist in PKI. If there is, people will probably forgive them for burning SOB. that might be good for PKI actually. It clears up alot of land that could be used for a new coaster. cough::King Cobra::cough.

ya, it is smooth now that they retracked it. It was not painful at all when I went. The second row was smooth as glass. It was the smoothest woodie I have ever been on actually.

^you're about the 5 different person that said that. It "has?" been retracked, but only around the helix-sections right?
I would wonder if they take away two cars from the train it would have a different result too.

Accident on Son of Beast

Postby TheKlockster » Sun Jul 09, 2006 3:41 pm

Ok - this just happened - and facts are sketchy. Two of the local channels are reporting from the park - and have showed a train stopped on the lift, empty. I am assuming that it was evacuated.

As for the other train - it appears that SOMETHING happened - and that people had to be rushed to the hospital. There was a bump - and the train stopped mid course. At least 5 people went out on stretchers - and as many as 25 could be injured.

Does this mean they can finally tear it down and replace it with something fun like a go-kart track?

I wonder if it was another Premier train wheel breaking off the ride like on Chiller.

A few less people get to ride it now in the long run, I better sell my stocks of Tylenol, and buy more stock in Morphine for those in the hospital. I hope no one was seriously injured, no more so than a typical ride on that monstrosity.
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

^If anybody is injured more then how much the ride already injures you, they are all dead! No, but hopefully they are all okay, maybe just a hard E-Stop or something, or a flying wheel, that too...
