In case you missed the fun and safety guides up front, The Son Of BEAST is a high speed, turbulent roller coaster ride with quick turns and sudden drops. People with exsisting back, neck, or bone problems, recent sugery or illness, pregnancy, high blood pressure, heart condition, or other medical conditions, should refrain from riding the Son Of BEAST. Please be aware of the recommendations and restrictions of this ride. And if you have any questions, Please contact the ride attendant.
And? What if I didnt know I have an exsisting condition? What if I have normal everything but just 1 weak wall in the artery in my brain. BEtween the jack hammering and constant throwing back and forth, if I hit my head wrong I could pop the artery....
Plus where does it say "Every rider should ride defensively to be safe on this ride. Please do not look to your left or right. Hold tightly to the bar and lean?
Well, you could pop a weak blood vessel riding up the Eiffel Tower. And yes, every rider should be aware of posted fun and safety signs. And, quite possibly, riders should ride defensively - but look at those who don't keep their hands inside the car, or those who smoke on the ride, or those who take video or snapshots while riding. If I were injured on any ride because the person in front of me let go of their camera and it smacked me in the face, I guess I could bring a lawsuit against the park - it would be their fault that a ride op did not see the person using the camera. BUT - in the case of SOB, the ride broke, causing injury - and with people knowing this they could very well exploit the park for faked injuries. I'm not saying that's what happened or that's what could happen, but...... Every ride can shake you up a bit - with my bad back, the Paddle Wheel Boats at CP had seats that allowed the vibration of the motor to rumble and after the 10 minute ride, I couldn't stand up nor walk for almost an hour. Did I sue? Hell no. But the emergency crews needed to be called out to help me.
So, I buy Chevys and you buy Fords because you think the Ford rides better - and I'm stuck with your decision. I am dissatisfied with the Ford's ride experience so you won't find a new Taurus sitting in my driveway, even if it's SBNO.
The general manager says no to the ride, so that's it. Become the general manager, ride the ride, make your own decision and we'll have to live with that too.
