I haven't been to the park, but judging from pictures it seems like the base of the drop and loop are pretty close to a walkway and park areas, or at least closer than Top Gun's which is way back behind two fences and quite far from guest areas. Anyone who's been there able to describe just how hard it would've been to get to this area?
The bad thing is it doesn`t matter how fenced in something like that is there will always be stupid people that have no common sense that will cause stuff like this to happen. It`s sad, unfortunate, and stupid.
The thing with B&M's is that their either silent or loud. I mean, there are times when I would be walking past Domintor and it would come flying through the overbank and I didn't even know it was near it.
It's really tragic that it takes these brutal reminders that RULES ARE THERE FOR A REASON! The invincibility factor of people never ceases to amaze me (and, it never ceases, period). My sympathies to his fiance and to the young lady on the train.
