I saw this yesterday, a fair few people on social media were tagging news outlets in their posts. Its pathetic this is what it has come to.
To be fair though this seems to have been a worse breakdown than usually and it doesn't seem the 45 minute wait was exaggerated. That is an awful long time to be waiting up there especially on the vertical lift hill.
The woman who passed out no doubt did because she let herself get so worked up to the point she probably hyperventilated etc. But it must of been a rather bad breakdown for it to be closed today.
There is a video floating around of one of the vertical fins which I'm guessing retracted and the smiler train jerked downwards, I can imagine that would of been quite terrifying for people. Obviously they won't know about the magnetic fins and probably only think of the chain.
Our good friend the operations director is back again with another video
