Amazing how a bolt has now become a 1 foot metal bar! I don't know much about construction - is it possible the bolt was this big?
If it was a bolt I reckon they'd be about 6 to 8" long to go through the support, as for the thickness I don't know lol

In this world of social media surely it would be better for them if what happened on Sunday came straight from the horses mouth.
I'm sorry I've already asked this, but will it be open in your opinion for perhaps Thursday next week?
I'm getting desperate now: I need to get marmalised!

You know how the Tabloids' sensationalised approach and word-of-mouth work... before we know it, there will be tales circulating of beheaded queuers and cars flying off broken track...!
I would not want to work for Gerstlauer's coaster division right now!
