This would be why I get off possessed, walk right past stinger, and head straight for steel force.

I really do feel bad skipping stinger, because dorney park really did take A LOT of effort to make this POS look nice and try to fit it in to the park. But its just too rough and unreliable.. NOT risking it, and I prefer NOT to have a migraine.

I just read on another site that Stinger has been stuck for at least 30 miutes with riders, from the picture it looks like it vallied between the loop and the 2nd lift.

The state should revoke the operation license for the ride. If they cause one more incident, they should tell the park not to operate until they get their act together.

^Even better, they should just knock it down. The money is gone and wasted, the only thing you can do with a sunk cost is remove it. I always thought a second kids area down in that lower end of the park would be perfect since that end of the park has lacked kids rides since Tot Spot was gone.

It wouldn't cost that much to do that either. Little Laser, Balloon Race and some other rides are in the boneyard. They could easily add a few rides in that area even temporarily. I guess it would go against their whole "park in a park" marketing they went with saying Planet Snoopy is its own park by having 2 kiddie ride areas though.

I think that all the small rides were removed because they actually have plans to more effectively use that land. Whether it be a Windseeker, new coaster, or something else, we will have to wait and see.
