  • When this story first hit, I mentioned I was born and raised about 5 miles away in Columbus from where this took place. On August 3rd, I called to wish my mom a happy birthday and she told me my older sister and my niece were there attending the fair when it happened. They're okay, and they weren't there riding adult rides, my niece has 2 daughters so they were riding the little kid rides.

    I was at Cedar Point on a day when a lady fell in a retention pond behind a beer concession got electro More..

  • Went to six flags yesterday and rode this. Was fully expecting this to happen so it made it pretty exciting. It was creaking and groaning quite a bit and all rusty.

  • So what is the point of having inspectors if those inspectors give zero fucks about ‘excessive corrosion’?

      I get a kick out of you assholes who hate themselves so much that they come here just to insult others yet aren't even bright enough to use context. What a retarded fudgepacking cockpuppet you are. LMFAO.

      My comment had ZERO to do with any of the nonsense that you just wrote. Whose opinion "did I get my word on"? Hope it was fun because I just killed you. Die Bitch!

  • Did I miss something? The company that makes the ride did the inspection and evaluation of what went wrong? Shouldn't an independent agency handle that?

  • And who is to blame for alloying excessive corrosion to persist? There should be civil action against the ride owners/operators with punitive damages awarded which are so harsh the company goes out of business.

  • Hard to believe that excessive corrosion was to blame. Seems more like heavy wear and tear. Most of those parts involved would be made from steel which is barely corrosive especially when maintained and well lubricated. I think something snapped from the constant stress of gravity.

  • So the manufacturer is saying it's not their fault. But its the manufacturer's fault- because every corporation make things just-barely-strong-enough to maximize profit. It would've co$t them more to make those steel pins and bolts thicker and with $tronger steel alloys.
