This is GREAT news. I'll try to get to the park in the next week or so and see how the new trains are running. :)

The ride opened at 1 PM today for the public.

As far as the newspapers are saying, it was a fault in the material of one of the bolts. All parts were checked last winter and rated as OK.


Sadly THIS information is not mentioned at the website of Holiday Park.

That's Mr. Schneider (CEO of Holiday Park) and Mr. Manzke (technical director).

Why do I still have a donkey title???

It seems like that the prosecutors' office isn't sure if the accident happened by fault in the material. One of the riders is suing the park for bodily injury caused by negligence and they are still waiting for the results of the material testing. I hope it wasn't the parks fault :(

airtimers.com/expedition-geforce-wieder-in-betrieb-aber-wer-tragt-die-schuld/004680/

Wer denkt das Thema sei damit abgeschlossen irrt leider! Die eingehende Materialprüfung ist noch nicht zu Gänze beendet und die Staatsanwaltschaft ermittelt deshalb weiterhin an einer Anzeige wegen fahrlässiger Körperverletzung. Sollte diese dabei zu dem Schluss kommen das der Unfall nicht auf einen Materialfehler zurückzuführen ist, könnte es noch ein böses Nachspiel geben…


And by the way: Hi everybody! I'm a long time ghost reader and decided now to write for the first time =)
I love TPR, you guys are the best! :b

*sigh* Well, it was bound to happen sometime. I'm just glad the GeForce is back in action!
