  1. I would’ve told you how it ended if you just asked. Instead of creating a story based on a tweet. I was on the next train 5 minutes later.

    It’s very dangerous to spread misinformation. Coasters have anti rollbacks and block zones that prevent accidents and collisions from happening. It’s messed up to post something like this just for clicks.

    Your site just lost all credibility with me

      “Two people nearly die in head on collision as two motorists pass each other at 55 mph in opposite lanes”

        I will never click on the link associated with his website after reading this article. Get your facts straight!

    So the anti rollback worked as it should…

    This site sucks

    Do the people who write these articles work here because they can’t get jobs anywhere else? This site needs more attention and not in the way the people running it hope.

    I was on the very front row of the coaster that got stuck up the hill. It was last summer. We were up for an hour or hour and a half I think. I didn’t have my phone on me. A team hooked us to the side rails and helped us down the stairs. We were evacuated safely. Yes it was a little scary. We were really high up in the air because we were first row. It was good weather and a teenager was crying behind me. There were rumors that they were just going to send us over the edge and keep going and then shut it down but the way the ride was broken it wasn’t possible. It was stressful because I had to help my little siblings, 14 and 11, stay calm. They provided us with water and they frequently checked in on us. We received a free ticket for all 5 people in my family, even though my parents didn’t ride (ps they didn’t even know we were stuck because they were halfway across the park eating lunch) and we also received 5 free meals and 5 free snack vouchers and 3 or 5 free fast passes. When we got off I’m pretty sure I shook hands with the park manager. He was fancy looking andwas the first on the ground to apologize and hoped we were okay. The ride proceeded to be closed for the remainder of our time there.

      I was on the very front row of the coaster that got stuck up the hill. It was last summer. We went up really fast like the coaster always does and then something bumped and we slowed down a bit and then we stopped suddenly. It sounded like something snapped.. We were up for an hour or hour and a half I think. I didn’t have my phone on me. A team hooked us to the side rails and helped us down the stairs. We were evacuated safely. Yes it was a little scary.
