Your only talking about 0.5 mph less wind speed or higher car speed and the whole thing wouldn't of happened. Tiny margins.

Sadly, I have a bad feeling that due to the recent event at Drayton, The Smiler will probably get some more hate from the press...

Abdul Hasil, 30, from east London, said he was on a day trip to the park and began "panicking" and asking staff what had happened.
He said that not knowing what was going on "increases the panic, especially after what happened with the Smiler at Alton Towers."
Five people were seriously injured in a collision on the Smiler rollercoaster at Alton Towers, also in Staffordshire, in June 2015.

Sorta... :cry:
