For anyone that does come to the park, just a bit of advice. Don't come on weekends, and I suggest going Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Reason being if someone takes a 3 day weekend it'll be Monday or Friday. Also if you stay at one of Cedar Points hotels you get into the park an hour before the general public. If you can't afford the hotels and want to come out there's a ton of camp grounds in the area with pretty cheap prices.



Pretty damn cool too that a season pass for Cedar Point is only 106 bucks considering it's 40 something to get in now. Gotta admit this is probably the best coaster I've ridden.

jslim39 That man at Darien Lake had one thigh, cut off at the knee, and the other leg was completely gone all the way to the hip. Therefore the LAP bar couldn't hold him in, because he HAD NO LAP. The ride was completely safe, there were just dumb idiots who let him on. It sucks because I was planning to go there on the 16th of July, and this happened. I still went, but it sucked having the best coaster in NY down.

On that note, it's cool to see that other snowboarders are into coasters a bit too. This summer I visited three parks; Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Kennywood (my home park, I lived in PGH till I was 14), and Darien Lake.

As of today, at age 18, I've ridden 55 different rollercoasters, and I gurantee you that I'll be over 100 in a matter of years.

BTW if you're a member of TPR then hi! If you're a member, you'll know what that stands for

They cited "operator error" for the incident. Reason being they say the operator should NOT have allowed him on

The problem was the war vet had no legs he lost both in the war and because his balance as a human body was off .it pulled him right out..

Technically these rides are made for people with arms and legs, thats how it is designed..

State cites Darien Lake in vet's roller coaster death | syracuse.com

The ride is back up and running.
This wasn't the first time someone got hurt on the superman, in 99 close to when it opened a heavy person fell out and got hurt. If i remember correct they installed the seat belts after and if you cant get it to latch you cant ride.

LuckyRVA I used to like amusement parks and roller coasters when I was a kid. Then, when I was 16 I worked for the summer as a lifeguard for the water park section of Paramount's King's Dominion near Richmond, VA. That summer ruined me for life for amusement parks. I rode rollercoasters nearly every singly day at closing but seeing the behind the scenes operations kind of takes the luster off. Not to mention, I saw some extremely seedy things during that summer.
