My family and I were in line for Wild Thing when this happened. We were at the entrance to the station but did not see what happened. We heard the normal really loud clicking noise when the train comes into the brake run and then a loud metal screeching noise. They immediately emptied the station and lines. Earlier in the day we got in line to ride and they stopped the ride for about 15 minutes. I do not know why it was stopped though.
This was only the second year my daughter (she is 16) would ride roller coasters and know she is questioning this. She did ride High Roller after this happened but she was really nervous.
How many days has the park been opened this season? Thier maintenance department sucks pretty bad if they can't find something this bad during the off-season inspections. This is an unimaginable failure.
Even Mindbender was actually a design issue, not a metal failure, wasn't it?
I never thought much of Morgans anyway, and once was enough for me on Wild Thing last year.
Yeah, looking more and more at these pictures it's hard to believe what a giant failure this was!
Wheels gone, undercarriage gone, uncoupled cars, this is crazy!
Like Rastus said, this will get interesting. If this is a metal fatigue, equipment failure type thing that could have happened ANYWHERE on the circuit, wow these people really lucked out. If this happened because of a braking issue, that is yet another failure to add to the ride!
