I actually noticed the crane system installed in the ceiling this weekend.

To those saying 'cause Six Flags' they do have evac platforms in problematic spots on all rides that are not easily accessible by crane. Chiller's Robin side had an evac pathway in its Cobra roll since the trains had saddled there just once. The Runaway Mine Train also has an evac platform on its hill right before the MCBR. It's apart of the engineering with every coaster built which leaves things up to either having an evac platform or shutting down the park to bring in a crane for evacs. Joker's Jinx didn't require an evac platform when it was built likely as apart of state regulations but I'm sure now that this has happened Maryland will not want people being evac'd from a crane again and change the code.

Code is intended as a bare minimum. Parks should always build above code.

When your budget is blown before the first month is done then you kinda can't go building above requirements. The park is balancing a huge budget with the addition of a ride, and with a park like SFA they don't exactly have the liberty to spend more than what they're required to.
