We just pared found a single rider before we even got in line, they wouldn't even let us get in line unless we had a a even number of people in our group.

You should have picked on them and said that there is no singer rider because there are three of you! lol. On a more serious note, I am surprised you were not given an explanation as to the rule change.

You might want to rethink your presumptuous statement there, buddy. How can anybody say if a rule is "dumb" if no information concerning it's placement are known.

P.S. Might I request that you Not bring up disscusions and/or topics relating to politics and/or the government? This is a forum that I (and others) come for discussions regarding lagoon, not political opinions.

I get car sick too and I don't get sick on spider! Like UtahJazz said.... It's too much fun to get sick on! Your mostly thinking about how fun it is rather then your stomach. Wink

During the chat tonight, we had an anonymous person join and explain that the new no single rider rule is a result of a death on a similar roller coaster where the person who died was riding by herself. I did some digging and found that there was a fatality on Xtreme at Dixie Landin' amusement park in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I don't know if this reason is legit or not, but I thought I would share it and we could discuss the possibility.

Extreme isnt the only accident from a coaster of this type. On January 30th a man fell out of Maihime in Tokyo, Japan. But I dont believe that one was due to a single rider if im correct it was a lapbar failing to lock.

No Cause was Found in the Xtreme Death at Dixie Landin', but it is Entirely Possible that Lagoon has implemented this new policy in response to the Xtreme and Maihime Incidents.

Here is a Link to a March 2007 Service Bulletin concerning the Locking Mechanism for the Safety Restraints on the Maurer Compact Spinning Coaster, SC-2000, & SC-3000: http://www.ltci.co.uk/LTC_Technical_Bulletins/Maurer_Locking_system.pdf
