Six Flags Kinda Defends Maintenance Practices

The headline in the local paper is that Six Flags defended its maintenance practices, but it really doesn't -- it says its people acted appropriately, but doesn't do anything to actually distance itself from the revelations yesterday that the staff didn't follow the manual's instructions.  Instead, it criticizes the family for releasing material from discovery -- material that's not under a protective order.  It may only give part of the picture, of course, but, at least from the story, Six Flags made no effort to tell the rest of it...which is, of course, the standard approach for defendants.

Hmm, interesting. Thank you for sharing this; it makes me want to go to Disneyland on my next "fun day" instead of Six Flags.

We have been following Six Flags theme park for a few years as a part of our theme park reviews. Actually Six Flags has maintained their parks pretty well. Although mine is just an observation.
