    Perilous Plunge reopens at Knott's, now with new safety restraints

    The new safety restraints on Perilous Plunge are a simple Over The Shoulder restraint with a safety strap that goes between your legs, similar to the restraints on Silver Bullet.

    Also, nice to see Knott's cracking down on Line Cutting.

    This is good news. I remember it taking about 10-30 minutes to load a single boat.

    Yeah those new restraints on PP really are nice. The employees can just take a peek at a control board to see whose restraints need tightening.

    Never been on that ride and I don't think I want to, it's had so many problems it seems.

    Most of Perilous Plunge's problems started with Intamin, but now they lie firmly in the wonderful operations of Knott's.

    I'm happy to see that the cargo container with the "Sandor's Hilarious Bavarian Imports" signage is still there.

    Always makes me laugh, its the old park GM's commentary on Sandor Kernac's, president of Intamin, handling of Perlious Plunge.

    Actually, the Intamin OTSR's that are on Kingda Ka and Storm Runner are quite comfortable.

    The words Knott's, and Wonderful operations do not belong in the same sentance. Not even the same thread.
