Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

A coaster in Vegas was swaying from the recent 7.1 earthquake in California and despite that they still send the train.

I'm sure it was fine to run, as they are designed to sway.

I saw another version of the video with subs and it is the Big Apple Coaster. Disneyland and Magic Mountain had to shut everything down during the quake and run inspections before reopening the rides.
