Cliff Hangers were finally allowed to reopen after about a month of being shut down. I was told today CVS's just passed its inspection and is now open for business.
Its not impossible it just costs more.

I know this question should be under a different topic, but what ever happened with the Orbitor's? Are these rides still red tagged or can they now operate.

There was nothing wrong with Orbitors.

Just that one. And that one to me is VERY fishy.



The Cliffhangers are not well built. The hangers are not stout enough, BUT, there was an update kit to put on these rides, and the shows that own them, did NOT put the update kit on them.


Take that for what its worth.

Im just giving my opinion, i would rather have a Star Trooper. I hate the thing between your legs, it kinds hurt when the ride is on the way up if you kow what i mean.

You are clueless. You have one? I do.

There was no update to the seat hangers. The style of the seat yoke was changed after the first 7 or 8 were made. No one was required to change to the new style yoke. In fact, the Wade accident happened on the new style hanger.

http://www.naarso.com/bulletin.htm 

The <s>hanger</s> stem was not designed to withstand the lowering of the seat rack without unpinning the bottom of the seats.

In my unhumble opinion, it is one of the most solid built rides we have ever owned.

Take that for what its worth.

You dont know what a cliffhanger feels like on a women's chest!

Anyways i can see your point, i can feel the thing between my legs but since im a women it doesnt hurt me,(also i am not that tall) and as for the above comment, the cliffhanger hurts my chest, but its a lot better than the zamperla kite flyer, which hurts my chest more.

Please define "VERY fishy"? I'm "VERY curious" about what that statement is supposed to mean.

And as far as the Orbitor's are concerned, I was directing the question to anyone in or around Florida. Considering that's where the incident occured. I was just wondering if any of the other Orbitor's in Florida were forced to shut down, or were able to operate?

No need for an attitude for such a simple question.
