At around 12:30 today, a gale-force wind swept through the Sevenum area. The wind blew over 13 bents of the lift structure, but thankfully all employees were off-site eating lunch at the time of damage.

Initial inspections of the damage reveal that the foundation and anchors are intact, and most of the lumber contained in the affected bents is salvageable. We will have to replace several large legs and batters with new material.

It is important to note that a coaster is not as strong during the construction process as it is when completed, since all supporting batters, bracing and track are not yet in place.

We hope to have all affected areas rebuilt within a week or so.

Again, we are blessed that no employees were injured during this unforseen event.

Thanks for the info Jeff, best of luck to you guys with the repairs.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

It's the largest GCI to date. And to clarify, it's a station fly-through. :)

There is no such thing as a donkey punch.
