Never been stuck for any uber length of time on a roller coaster so don't know how I'd react.. but when I saw the headline I thought it was Magic Mountain's new Lex Luthor drop they attached to the superman ride.. If I got stuck at the very top on either one of those I'd be a little shaky.

~415 ft.

Mugato: BigNumber12: From what I recall reading, the ride calculates launch velocity each time it's loaded, based on the specifics of the riders. So, from time to time, it won't give the car quite enough 'oomph' to get it up over the hill, and it stalls on top. So, a better explanation would have been "the ride isn't broken, it just made a slight calculation error." Which isn't something that a spokesperson would say, unfortunately.

So he should have said, "it's the fault of that fat fark in the third row."


Yes...

Okieboy: Mega Steve

Came to say that. If no mechanical problem, just what does he think IS the problem? It's obviously a plot by the customers.

If they hadn't gotten stuck and that ride is anything like the former Superman ride (now Bizarro) at Six Flags New England, they'd owe those people some new shorts. I'm guessing some free passes are in order.

I bet Wex Wuthor is behind this.
