[QUOTE=GrumpyDad;1079366]Reminds me of when my youngest was about 11 or 12. I had promised to take her to the local Six Flags. Well we got close and the traffic was really light, so jokingly I told her the park was probably closed. :laugh:
We get to the gate and there is a sign, closed for the season. :eek: I don’t recall the last time I felt that bad. She was a good sport about it, just made me take her to Gurnee Mills, which is a mall full of discount stores. It cost me a lot more then I would have paid at the park, but it did keep peace in the car!
How could you make that kind of mistake?
Didn’t you make sure Great America was going to be open first?
By the way, we stayed at the Comfort Inn slightly outside the main gate and I found the walk was just a shade longer than the walk from the Contemporary to the MK main gate.
Now, the real reason I’m posting.
Primevel Whirl is still closed after that incident?
They haven’t been able to figure out yet that the accident was caused by operator error and loss of situational awareness?
Edit: I was unaware of the March, 2011 accident. I thought it was the earlier accidents, but those were all in 2007.
