Sounds like a hydraulic line ruptured. The operator E-Stopped the ride, and caused it to stop suddenly. Hence, the bumper car like action with the swings banging into each other.

This is a very unfortunate event. Thank God no one was seriously injured.

Wow...that must suck and must have hurt. This kinda reminds me of what Robb experienced at PGA: The wobbly chairswings that wouldn't stop.

Was this actually an accident? As in a failure of the ride system itself?

Or was it just an e-stop?

I've always heard that e-stops on a wave swinger are pure hell.

Six Flags Over Texas 2007 Annoucement

Postby SharkTums » Tue Nov 07, 2006 4:38 pm

"If you thought this year was BIG, wait until you see what Six Flags Over Texas has planned for the 2007 Season!"

Any ideas?

Wha- Wha- Wha??? My homepark's getting an expansion????

Must...find...out...MORE

Maybe they'll put a couple rides under the knife. As much as I love Texas Giant it's definately not one I'd ride all day, atleast if I want to stay in one piece. And Judge Roy Scream is getting a little rusty as well. Maybe They're just planning to do overhauls on everything.

Either that, or my dream of SFoT getting a Euro-Fighter/Spinner may come true, wishful thinking... :(

Hmmm, maybe Cypress's announcement is that they sold the Starliner's rotting corpse, and SFOTs announcement is that they bought it!

I hope its something good though, Texas has been going thru a major coaster drought for the last couple of years!
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

I hope they don't close the park before I get there.

The trip I planned in early 2005 for Astroworld, SFNO and SFoT never did materialize.

^dont think you have anything to worry about, SFoT is one of the untouchable parks that doesnt face the axe =)

I really do wonder though...Would SFoT maybe be getting a Screamin Swing? Considering there are already 2 going to other places around the world I think they're a hot item...Perhaps SFoT got in on the market for flat rides last year and is keeping the trend. They need a good big flat ride of some kind. Maybe the first buyer from Huss after its reshuffle?
