BigNumber12: 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.


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.

"Every ride is checked every morning to make sure it runs properly and the Superman wide was checked Sunday morning and no problems were found, according to the park spokeswoman."

Quote is apparently from this child:

Klaumbaz: It's a simple math thing...

Force = Mass * Acceleration...

The coasters launcher has a set force it can deliver....so Force/mass = Acceleration...and the higher the Mass, the lower the Acceleration....

/amidoingthisright?


Not if you're using the Force while you attend Mass.
