Cedar point shoot the rapids crashes

Postby CP2013 » Sun Jul 21, 2013 7:18 am

On Friday, July 19 at 6:42 p.m., ride operators stopped the Shoot the Rapids ride after a boat rolled back down the lift hill. Cedar Point Police, EMS staff, ride operators and several park guests immediately responded and helped passengers exit the boat. All seven guests on the boat were transported to Cedar Point’s First Aid Station. Six of the guests were evaluated and treated by Cedar Point EMS Staff and released. One guest was transported to Firelands Regional Medical Center in Sandusky, Ohio, for additional evaluation. The safety of our guests is our number one priority.

Cedar Point officials are currently investigating the incident and have reported it to state of Ohio officials. Shoot the Rapids will remain closed until park officials and inspectors from the state of Ohio complete their review. No further information is available at this time.

This is also another bad incident, it's not as bad or tragic as the Texas Giant incident which accounted on the same day.
I do believe in the rule of 3 meaning that normally something will happen and two other events in the same field happen. In this case we had Texas Giant, Shoot The Rapids and The Smiler which Simba posted in the topic for it.

Woops. Didn't the boat also flip over when it reached the bottom of the lift hill? I think I heard somewhere that it did but I could be easily wrong.

That is bad. Any news on how it actually happened yet? Really surprised no-one was majorly hurt, especcially if the boat did flip at the bottom.

I hate thinking about this happening in real life. It happens in RCT but I freak when that happens too :/
