This morning on Fox 19 in Cincinnati they said that SOB might reopen next year. The park will be doing more test during the off season. I guess they found something on the frist set of tests.

From the desk of Maureen Kaiser:


Son of Beast Statement
12.13.06

The State of Ohio’s Department of Agriculture released today its final report detailing the outcome of the extensive Son of Beast inspection. The report reaffirms initial indications that the incident was an unforeseen single event failure.

We will now focus our energies on the appropriate and necessary changes needed to reopen the ride in 2007. In addition to reinforcing the physical structure of the ride, we plan to remove the loop. Taking this extra step enables us to use lighter trains, which will reduce the load and lead to a more comfortable ride experience.

We are making good progress on Son of Beast and are fully committed to reopening the ride in 2007.

Riiiiight...

Problem: A ride is painful and sucky

Solution: Take out the one thing that makes it worth riding!

Huzzah! Problem solved!



Jeez... first universal now this... logic seems to be all over the place.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

I don't think Cedar Fair will have any objections to that, either.
