What has the crash got to do with the standard of the ride? Is keeping it run down and worsening the guest experience meant as an indication of safety reassurance, or some kind of penance? It's just plain bad maintenance (and cheap design/build in the case of most the Smiler's theme) Also removing audio to avoid any tabloid sensationalising has surely served its purpose now and should be put back? I'm sure nobody really belives there's a connection between a sound effect saying "Half way corrected" and a breach of the H&S at Work Act. Or the line "welcome to eternal darkness" from Oblivion. If people were really looking for offence, surely the fact the ride still operates would be more significant than a random line. A non-issue.
