Re: X:\ No Way Out

I was there last week and the music volume was so much better, all they need to sort now is

Get it running on 3 trains.
Get last season's music back.
Get rid of the 2 riders per row rule, I know it's a manufacture's rule so it's here to stay.

and I will be very pleased with it.

Was Justin the one who tried to leave mid ride I've heard he gets scared easily?

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

I went on park on Thursday and one of my rides on it was just after 2pm I had crossed fingers for the front on that ride and I got it, and I agree Dave is one of the best there.

Re: The Smiler Incident 02/06/15

This may sound harsh but the person who I feel sorry for the most is the ride op in charge when it happened.

https://twitter.com/ParkUpdates/status/653271952233250816 @topcityfan along the brake run, heard some music coming from inside. It then started testing all 3 trains i think. I'm guessing what he heard was maybe the dispatch and arrival voice overs? "Join Us" and "You Belong to the Sm...

Re: Downtime 2015

If someone has thrown up the do normally say, there is one op on the smiler/oblivion who says the ride has stopped while we clean up the remains of someones breakfast/lunch/dinner which to me is too much information.

Re: Slowed down Runaway Mine Train

That wouldn't happen. The headchoppers would have passed the safety envelope test before the ride was opened to the public, if there was any risk of a rider being able to touch them they wouldn't have been there in the first place. I know the rides have been though this and other safety tests but o...
