BigNumber12: Okieboy: Mega SteveCame 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.
BeezyBates: the Superman wide was checked Sunday morning
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?

rkallister: And if you're the operator of that ride, what do you say to the next guy in line?
