Hard hats? If the ride was still under construction, maybe they shouldn't have been running guests through it.

Interesting they have those close at hand... tells me this may not be entirely unexpected?

It's likely a hard hat area for anyone that's not a guest and on the ride, so they issued hard hats to comply.  Since they had plenty of time and there wasn't any immediate risk to the guests by waiting to do that, fair enough.  You can get into a surprising amount of shiat skating hard hat regs unless there is an immediate and serious threat to life and limb, and you can prove you had no time to fark with it

I appreciate the clarification, but it's just possible I wasn't being entirely serious.

Correct. It is entirely expected that some rides, some of the time, will break down.

It's been one of those months for me, shiat's been all farking serious all the time - it bleeds a bit into Fark sometimes.  Apologies

Also, keep in mind that this was in Japan, where they have different safety regulations than here in the US where they just don't give a shiat about guest safety.

I think some folks would line up for rides that require a hard hat.

No need to apologize. Judging from the zero reaction my post got, the joke could have used some protective gear, because it totally fell flat.

Much like other "OMG roller coaster stuck!" stories, this is a big nothingburger.  The ride appears to have been stopped on the lift hill (Hollywood Dream rides backwards, IIRC) and the riders were never in any actual danger.  The hard hats are probably due to Japanese safety regulations.

But, "roller coaster safety system works as intended" doesn't generate clicks.
