    No kidding. It almost looks like Colossus at Tragic Mountain but I'm not 100% sure.

    yes every Coaster have Gaz they use the system for the brakes . Roller Coaster Brakes works by Air Pressure .

    Hey Al! Where's the big smokin' gun in the report that was going to look horrible for the Walt Disney Company? Most of us know you hate DCA, but you don't have to make up BS to dis the park we all know you already hate. I'm sorry if you love the guy, but I just thought it was time to point out one of the many false statements that are in his ficticious bi-monthly column. Personally, I just love the empty DCA photos. It's kind of funny since I never seem to have the luck of visiting the park on one of those days. It was packed this past Wednesday afternoon.

    Unforuntately, the results of the investigation sound all to similar to incidents on other Intamin designed roller coasters. What I don't understand is why in recent years Intamin does not design fail-safe brakes. On most roller coasters compressed air is used to open the brake, not to close the brake. Basically releasing the air pressure will cause the brake to clamp shut. Thus it is fail-safe should a power or air pressure failure result. This doesn't seem to be the case with the recently build Intamin roller coasters.

    Oy vey. Yes, it is all lies and filth! Did you know he digitally edits out people from DCA for his Disneyland fiction?

    This week has been unusually packed at the DLR. One Wednesday does not make a photo false, nor does one photo imply that the entire park is completely empty. I've been there 19 times since the end of June. And there have been many, MANY occassions where you could fire a cannonballs down the major DCA walkways and not hit anyone, in the middle of the day.

    I'm curious what was false in the last update? The CM employment issues? The widening of the walkways? Patch of Heaven closing for a makeover? The photos of the subs are obviously false since the Matterhorn isn't sinking (besides, every time I go to the Park there are always WORKERS in there, I guess they must have been digitally removed too). The toontown re-do? The Cars or Incredibles rides? The ride closure boards removal? AP ads? I think I saw those ads up yesterday, but I can't quite remember, so I guess that must be false too.

    So let's see... Disney had a screwed up inspection of the ride and knew of leaks which caused the minor accident. Yes, that is QUITE flattering for Disney.

    Re: Screamin' Accident caused by Air Leaks?

    If the accident happend later in the day, why didn't the air leaks cause the brakes to fail earlier in the day?
