Universal Studios Hollywood Debuts, Fast and the Furious: Supercharged

Fast and Furious debuted to the world this June 24th with mixed reviews. I personally was able to check out the attraction yesterday and I think its a great new finale to the tour. Its not anything to jump on a plane and fly across the country to see but definitely a cool thing to check out. I cant wait to see some of this technology they used in future attractions soon. Another good tip is to try to get in the front car as that seemed to be the best seat for finale. We don’t want to give away any spoilers as the ride just opened but until then enjoy some fun videos we put together for you guys. Ride reactions from Vin Diesel, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriquez and an appearance by Jason Statham in the following videos.

Kings Dominon: Haunt Review

Kings Dominion: 2014 Haunt Review

Who am I and why should you care about my opinion of the Haunt event? Well you shouldn’t. I am just here to give you guys my opinion and my insight. I have been to 8 haunt events this October and I will be putting out reviews through out the next few weeks of each of my experiences.

My visit to Kings Dominion this last October was not only my first time to experience Haunt, but was my first Trip to Kings Dominion, ever. Not only did I get to enjoy the park during the day but was also enjoying the nighttime at the park with all the Haunt experiences the park has to offer.

First, lets point out one tremendously great thing about Kings Dominion. Admission Prices. If you would like to attend Kings Dominion and also enjoy the Haunt evenings the whole thing will only set you back $35 on Fridays and $39 on weekends. That’s right. From 9am-midnight, including access to all the mazes is $39. Wow!

Legal issues continue over Texas Giant death

Legal issues continue unfortunately over at Six Flags Over Texas as the lawsuit continues for the death of the 52 year old woman who had fell to her death while riding the New Texas Giant.

dropRosa Esparza fell to her death after her lap restriant failed to keep her in her train over the first drop of the coaster in July 2013. Her family is suing Six Flags and the Manufacturer, Gerstlauer Amusement Rides, for $1 million dollars.

A deposition has just been released showing that a Gerstlauer Amusement Rides Executive has said the park was negligent because the ride attendant did not check the lap bar restraint an the operator failed to stop the ride.

“She gave statements shortly after Ms. Esparza’s death that she thought the lap bar was a little too high and not in what she thought was the proper position and yet she did not stop the train and that was her responsibility.”
