Whoa, thats scary. I expect they'll need a comuter system update and a complete safety on the ride. If I ever get back there I'll want to know I'm safe on their rides.

Again, just to point out...

the WDW world one is completely safe, its the one in DLC which is "unsafe" and apparently it was a ride op's fault...

(Btw, WDW = Florida. DLC = disneyland california)

Yeah sorry i sometimes get confused it was Disney Land Park in California, but that park makes up a resort with another park Disney California adventure which i dont really like, And DLC is my fav Disney park as its the only one Walt Disney was involved with

Its not enough to say it was the ops fault however. All coasters should have fail safes to make sure an operator error could never result in such an accident.

Bad software, ban maintenance and bad manufacturing.

But this time it was due to human error, or so they say, they say when they reset the ride system, it lost where the trains were on track hense the crash, they should have a back up system, they had to reset the system because a kid pushed open one of the gates in the station which on all rollercoasters will E-Stop the ride.

I can't believe that after only just opening after the fatal accident last year, that there'd be another problem so soon. You would have thought it'd be one of the safest coasters around now, but apparently not. It's really lucky there weren't any riders...

And on the subject of coaster-related accidents- an employee's died at Six Flags Magic Mountain after (wait for it): walking into a restricted area of the Scream (B&M Floorless) coaster, somehow getting onto the track, and then being hit by the train. Thankfully, (if I can use that word) the ride was on morning test runs and there were no riders. Obviously, it's another tragic incident, but you have to wonder what he was doing...

GRRRR!!! How can they blame a ride op? or call it human error!

This aint a mistake on someones bank balance or train ticket!

In my opinion it can never be the ride ops fault, just a bad design of a ride that allowed human error into the equasion (which is the bit the makes it a bad design)

What suprises me is that coaster force havn't told us how many thousands are dead, or how many trillions of dollars it's going to cost to put right wink.gif

But on a serious note, there is no way it is ride op error, these things are bloody hard for an operator to intefere with.
