Emergency crews rescued the 24 passengers riding on the "Jokers Jinx" roller coaster, according to our ABC affiliate in Baltimore, after a nearly four-hour ordeal.

Nearly four hours?!? I was once stuck on a broken down coaster (Sheikra) for two hours. Those seats and harnesses become very uncomfortable after about thirty minutes. I can't imagine almost four hours. I was starting to cramp up after an hour and the 95* temp wasn't helping. At least it looks like they didn't have over the shoulder harnesses.

Rode it Monday.
It seemed kind of slow.  Maybe it's all the rust on it.

SFA is my home park, and I've ridden JJ many times. The way local media was reacting, I was expecting the train to be on fire and flying off the track. That particular train may have issues, as yellow is used a lot. The purple train needs to come out of semi-retirement and get some time on the tracks. I just can't get over the chick in the last car lighting up a damn cigarette. They made her put it out real quick. Looks like JJ will be out of service for a while.

Seems like it might be a problem with the launch. One of my coaster - riding friends said the launch seemed a bit off, and his train barely made it through the circuit.

I am shocked nothing has happened at Six Flags Over Georgia yet. Holy crap, that entire park is in such disrepair, just making it through the parking lot is a miracle. Not to mention, the rides in general suck and there's no shade ANYWHERE.  Think Atlanta in the dead of summer, and the place is basically a giant parking lot with rusted, fading coasters and run by high school dropouts who couldn't possibly care less about ANYTHING, much less your safety. It's a glorified carnival you pay $50 to get in to... although for like 5 dollars more, you can get a season pass and have the pleasure of returning several times.  This brings up another point- passes are so damn cheap, everyone and their mother in the Atlanta area may as well have been issued them by the state; the place is frigging mobbed all the time, regardless of the level of suck.

/My God, I hate that place

Actually, it has. While we were there last year, a group of passengers were stuck on one of the rides. I don't remember which ride, but it was the one with a 90 de degreen verticle rise at the beginning, and that's precisely where they were stuck while crews had to get them down. I don't think anyone was hurt, but considering they were staring at the sun the whole time, it had to suck.

Superman with the VR glasses they had last season was rediculusly awesome.  VR glasses on Mindbender was a major letdown.
