Today I almost got stuck on the prowler! It was almost my turn to get on when a pool of people ran from it! It turns out, 2 carts got stuck!! Earlier that day, the boomerang was stuck, the momba remained CLOSED like previous weeks(same with the Zulu), Cyclone while I was on it started up but failed to start on command, and timber wolf got stuck for about 45 minutes and had to get a switch replacement. Dont forget that on May 30th this 2017 year that the zulu and fury of the nile was closed. O.O crazy right? All but the patriot today out of roller coasters?! Please repair, I LOVE THIS PLACE...
You know I almost thought of deleting this post, but I have never have done that so and I don't feel like starting today.
First off, it is pretty normal for TRAINS to stop on a roller coaster course. Completely normal, it means the safety systems are working. Since there is only one place Prowler can be stopped on its course (its lift hill), its pretty impossible for TWO trains to be stuck. I guess one could be on the lift and the other in the brakes, just prior to the station, but the second train really isn't on the course. The safety system prevents train collisions, and incorporates photo eyes (hundreds of them) along the course to identify where the train actually is. If the rides' control system at any time decides that the trains MAY be to close together (usually if the wind blows to hard, or a leaf blows in front of a sensor), then it stops all trains at the next brake point.
Boomerangs in general get stuck "all the time" (not really all that often, but enough) in the saddle of the boomerang, its a known issue with this type of ride which is why there is a cat walk there, not a safety issue. It really doesn't happen all that often but does happen.
Mamba I believe was down at one point for a day, Mamba rarely goes down for operation.
Last thing, rides are mechanical in nature, like your car, only they have to run A LOT more. Imagine if you had to drive your car from Missouri to Florida and back every single day, 100 days out of the year. Then you did this for 20-40 years. Add on top of that your car would simply just STOP on the road if it detected any minor abnormality with itself or any car next to you. Even with normal maintenance I can guarantee you would break down every once in awhile. That's what these rides are doing. They are still incredibly safe, which is a part of the reason you see them "break down". Not in the least bit worried.
