it 'rolled' into the station. Doesn't sound like it was going fast, 15mph tops is my guess

Yummy! I just ate donkey!

I caught that coolest shot of Maverick that I have seen yet earlier. I got very lucky with it.

Even though this incident was pretty small, I bet it will stay closed for at least a week, maybe more. They have to investigate and find out why it did this, and when they do, who knows what all they'll have to do to fix it, unless it was just human error.

On site reports are saying the train blew past the last brake run and hit the next train in the transfer brake. I have ridden this ride 1,000 times. Coming into the transfer brake isn't that fast, but it would sting a bit to stop that quickly.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.
