rode it last week, still doing that.Wild Izzy/Maus always had some good abrupt-braking going on just before returning to the station. It made for terrific viewing from the ground nearby. Wild indeed.
I can't recall any other brake experience in the park that approached that one. Then again I've never come to a complete stop on Apollo's mid-course. Its other brakes have never been anything other than fine, as far as I know and have experienced...
The stop is designed by one of the top roller coaster manufacturers to be a safety mechanism, and it is tested daily to make sure it is operating. I doubt they put anyone in it when they test a safety feature.Is anyone on the coaster when they do that, to see if the stop is smooth? The complaint wasn't that it didn't stop, it's that it did.
No one is on the train when these tests occur. But I'm sure someone rode and they stopped it there after the incident to double check it as part of the investigation.Is anyone on the coaster when they do that, to see if the stop is smooth? The complaint wasn't that it didn't stop, it's that it did.
