This really says something about Gerst's ride construction. I always found it strange that their rides encountered so many problems (Basing off my own experience - I don't think I've been to thorpe park once without Saw breaking down) and now I wonder as to what irresponsible development in the design has allowed for two trains to be on the same block of track at the same time
... shouldn't the computers/sensors have stopped this... and if not then shouldn't the ride ops have noticed a train had stalled and force-stopped the other one before it crested the lift hill?!!! I fear there are a lot
of questions to answer.
Four seriously injured so far according to the Beeb - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-32980354
- Let us hope dearly these do not extend to deaths at-all and that everyone is safely cared for.
