Has any of the media asked for a comment on what happened from John Wardley? I know he would say no comment but I am surprised it hasn't been printed that he said no comment. Likewise with the manufacturer
It isn't really anything to do with him though, he had a little bit to do with the design process but it wasn't really anything to do with the design or the manufacturer as to why the accident happened because it was designed to, under normal circumstances, be fast enough to get round the track, and to e-stop the ride if for whatever reason it doesn't.
The new train shouldn't have been sent round empty, especially on a windy day, it should have had water dummies in if the wheels hadn't had chance to warm up properly. And the ride did e-stop when the empty car didn't make it to the end of the block. Therefore neither design or ride system at fault.
I know we don't know if that was definitely how it happened but we can say that was the most likely scenario.
