Really enjoyed this one, which surprised me as it didn't look like much at first glance. Anyone know why sometimes it takes a long time between the end of the ride and restraints being released? From what I could tell, it was due to one of the planes swinging ever so slightly, so maybe there is no mechanism for locking them up when the ride as stopped, which makes some sense. Why add a brake or lock that is going to wear just to save a couple of minutes? Anyway, I was just curious about that.

All planes must be locked in their load/home position before restraints can be unlocked. It's no different than Cliffhanger.

They usually clean that stuff up after it happens. Seems weird that they wouldn't.

I am surprised that you would ride any of the rides... I am pretty sure that all of the rides have had puke on there at sometime!


If it's clean I will ride it though!

This is true lol. Ive seen lots of puke from my time at Lagoon. Rock o Plane has a hose to be used for washing the cars out, they are disinfected with lysol later though lol.

I saw once while operating rocket. Blast off went up and the purple barf came down.

Ive even seen someone barf in the colossus train.

I think pretty much every ride has had a BOH happen on it. Lagoon does a good job of cleaning it up though so no need to avoid a ride because of barf.

I once waited about an hour and a half for cannibal, and right when I was at the gate to get in the trains, someone puked all over it, so I had to wait an additional fifteen minutes for them to clean it. Not complaining though, cannibal is worth it any day.

Anyways, my near eighty year old grandma will still ride air race, and she loves it. So..... this generation of new teens are to soft.

Sounds like a person on the cycle before you puked and didn't tell anyone. Happens all the time at all parks. It is not Lagoon's or the Ride's fault people get sick on them. Everyone who has worked at Lagoon and on this forum have dozens of puke stories we'd be more than happy to share in full detail! lol
