Re: Ride Downtime 2013

Hi all

My children and sister were on the back row of the Smiler yesterday when it broke down on the second lift hill....

Now I'm OK with things like this happening but i am not OK with being lied to...

I thought my family were in the queue line when the down time occurred so I went through the exit to the station to see if I could see them to give my youngest his medication. They were not there. I asked in the shop about the downtime to be told that "they were putting another car on the track" now I know it does not take 30 mins to put a car on and they would not stop a car on the lift hill to do this. I waited for a hour, no update just the queue line being evacuated.

I was with another lady who's daughter was on there as a single rider. She was also complaining about the lack of communication. We managed to spot a manager walking towards us and called her over to voice our concerns and ask questions. She replied that there was no safety issues but the harnesses would not open. She also told us there was a power issue to that part of the ride and assured me they were doing all they could. I get that there are problems. I was getting concerned now as my youngest has behavior issues and his meds had run out. A medic came to me took the medication and assured me he would get them to my son. I was assured that someone was talking through the P.A system to the people in the car but they was not communicated to at all they were left there for 2 hours

Next thing you know there is a scream and the cars start to move BACKWARDS down the lift hill.. omg I have never seen anything like it. Now I would of thought that they would of evacuated the car at the bottom but they did not. They took water to people and gave my son his medication. Waited another 20 mins then sent them back through the ride. This I thought was strange.

I cannot fault the staff in the shop and the medics they were blinking brilliant.
