Classic case of lots of [mis]information around at the moment, but most of the reports I've read appear to suggest it was a piece of ride hardware, not a loose article.So, there we have it. Metal detectors on TTD and quite possibly Millennium in 2022.
At approximately 4:30 this afternoon, a small metal object became disengaged from a train on the Top Thrill Dragster roller coaster as it was ending its run. The object came into contact with a female guest waiting in line for the ride. The park’s EMS team and Sandusky Fire Dept. responded immediately, and the guest was transported to the hospital for medical care. At this time, our focus is on the guest and her family.
The ride will remain closed until a full safety investigation is complete.
My bad. I was under the impression that someone had carried an object on the train. I should have read before posting.Classic case of lots of [mis]information around at the moment, but most of the reports I've read appear to suggest it was a piece of ride hardware, not a loose article.
Tony Clark's statement:
A female guest was injured while waiting in line at Cedar Point Sunday after a small metal object became “disengaged” from a roller coaster and struck her, a park spokesman confirmed.www.cleveland19.com
There really is zero read here on how long a closure we are looking at unfortunately. Local news has really been digging in on the story - unclear if it's a hit piece or something worth further investigation, we really just have little to no info.ummm.. of course.. but do we know typically how long?
I really wish I could say I am not dorky enough to know the two types of concrete that are used for paving the TTD queue infield, yet here we are.The picture may be too small to tell for certain, but can anyone here tell where it was taken? I tried a bit of Geoguessing in Street View and found that the picture at least corresponds well to the concrete paving in the area. See here for instance:
