Most likely, what would the safety device be tho? Restraints, emergency stop options, structure of the ride? Eh who knows

I really wish Six Flags would give us some info as to what is going on. Based on what this says, it's a sensor....sensor to what, who knows. My guess it's a sensor that detects whether or not restraints are locked.

Must not have been too big of a problem because Joker opened about a half hour ago.

It's open as I type this at the park now. Thought it would be closed as well. It's windy too. But, it's open!

Not bad, must've been a small error. I don't really care that there was no info on it, but i would've hoped that they would've possibly given us info on it if it would've carried on longer

I was definitely a skeptic when it came to these being added across the chain. But after riding a couple weeks ago, I have to say it's truly a fun ride. Legitimately the only coaster that I still get nervous about every single time I ride. With that being said, I wanna get back in line, as soon as we hit the brakes. Green Side is much better, but I like each for their own reasons. I'm not sure if this was mentioned before or not, but if you 're facing Batman in the station, you will be riding backwards on the first third. (and vice versa.) Not sure about the rest as I loose all sense of direction on the drop after hills. (I know this sounds really vague but I'm doing the best I can to describe it :? ) As for the SRQ, I waited 20 minutes and didn't move at all. Admittedly could've just been bad luck with having even groups. But I wanted to ride and the queue just under the tent was an hour if that. I was really impressed with how the line moves. Barely stood in one spot at all.

It seems like the other side always wins on American Eagle :?
Also, I've ridden Goliath 23 times in one day. HBU? :roll: :P
