I heard about the incident at the Atlanta Airport. Six Flags is having it share of accidents this year. First Ninja, then Nitro and now Jokers Jinx.

I really wouldn't consider Jokers or Nitro an accident, since the trains were evacuated due to them not moving. Ninja, on the other hand I would consider an accident due to injuries.

Well let's just say Nitro and Jokers Jinx we're minor incidents and Ninja a major accident.

Joker's Jinx was a "minor incident". Nitro was a slow news day and media overreaction to an absolute non-story.

DejaVu2001, you're right, Nitro's accident was an overreaction, the kind of stuff isn't news-worthy. But Joker's Jinx, I would consider a major accident because of the fact they were stuck for 5 hours and the fire fighters had to use cherry pickers to bring them down. Plus it made the Six Flags Incidents page:

No, it is definitely a minor incident. For it to be major, they must be stuck upside down or there must be a crash. A valley, no matter how inconvenient, is not a major accident.

Here the way I would put it

Nitro- nothing to see here
Joker's Jinx- incident
Ninja- accident
