Novas said:Lisa - Thank you so much for coming on and sharing those pics. It has saved hours, maybe even days of arguements on our little forum.
The pictures clearly show a missing bolt and another on it's way out. I'd say that points to load issues on the joint as opposed to a rogue dodgy bolt. HSE will be all over this.
School holidays started 48 hours ago and we're now looking at another period of heavy downtime. The saga continues ey. :/
Tom said:It's the "these things happen" and "accidents do occur" statements that I take issue with really. Blame can always be given and it is important to identify who deserves it.
This was a highly serious incident that too many people are quick to laugh off.

Must be, obviously B&M can't ever be at fault.
If The Smiler was a MACK we would be considering sabotage
Seriously this happening isn't very good especially as the queue is under the ride, it's going to require some serious consideration from Towers.

I feel sorry for the Head of Park operations, as they have this sandwich of stress waiting for them tomorrow. if they have not been called in today.
