    I’m looking into it, but it’s the new normal for the time being at least.

    I didn't ride today (line more than 20 mins all day) but with only one side running I would think they are modifying the other side. After all this time without problems this seems like it should be simple to rectify. Maybe everyone gets shackles so we can't stick our feet out?

    Probably a few million rides. I can't fault Universal, if it didn't happen a bunch of times before.

    Sometimes there’s just a freak accident. Nearly 30 years in, there’s a first for everything I guess.

    I’m glad they’re taking precautions to prevent it from happening again. It’s the right thing to do.

    They'll just bring the spaceship ride vehicles back..........those were an alternative when the ride first opened, more enclosed.

    Story should be coming out tomorrow, or soon, from what I’ve heard.

    I’m still unsure of the details, but kid got foot hurt and they closed ride for a day and a half and now they check that everyone has hands and feet inside before unload. That’s pretty much it.

    I really hope the poor kid is ok! I hope Universal doesn't decide to get rid of ET due to this horrible accident.

    0 chance of that. Just make the necessary safety adjustments and move on.

    I was wondering the same thing. I can't remember if I've ever seen pictures of them online.

    One of the hardest images to find. It was basically ET's spaceship, that sat about 5 (I think)

    Someone linked either a snapshot of a video or a photo of that somewhere on an IU thread some months back. I can't remember where exactly, but it's somewhere on the site.

    Makes more sense than flying to another planet on a bicycle.

    Some nice investigation! You're spot on about Chinese whispers, everybody feels the need to alter and twist a story to make it that little bit more exciting.

    Next time you go on the Fallon ride, check out the first floor area of the second host of the Tonight Show, Jack Paar. When I was just a wee lad I would stay up to watch the show, primarily because Paar may have been the best conversationalist oriented host ever on network TV. Anyway....once every few weeks he would put the night's guests, some of his regulars, and a few people from the audience in a circle sitting on chairs. He would have a real short story written on a piece of paper, hand it to the one of the people sitting, and have that person whisper the story to the next person sitting on the right. Then, without the aid of the 'written' story, that person would whisper it to the next person. They would continue telling the story until it got to the very last person in the circle. Paar would then ask that last person to tell the story. By then the story was generally completely different than what was originally written on the paper.
