chair lift fail greek peak ny

so last night i was riding greek peak in ny with a friend. he got on the chair in front of me then i got on when i got on the the safety bar on the right came unhooked and it fell on my head i took the foot rest in the top of the head. the rest hung onto my shoulder for a minute then fell off completely and hit the ground. About half way up the lift it stops when it starts it lurches and swings kinda scary. That's my scary lift story. I got a free day lift out of it.

I'm from endicott right near binghamton. I agree I would rather go other places but it seems like greek has the best night riding and I gotta go back cause I have a free lift from the incident.

It was lift 4 chair number 64. Lift 4 is the chair that goes to the top of the east side and trojan. The lift that starts right above the bunny slope

Ohh I rarely went on that lift. I spent all my time on lift 2. I went to school at BU, that's why I was always there.
