Wow! Apparently the blackout extended all the way to Ohio and people got stuck on the rollercoasters at Cedar Point! My Dad was researching this for me yesterday when he came across even more shocking news: they’re going to dismantle my favorite ride, the Schwabinchen! I am really, really disappointed about this. Maybe I should mount a “Save the Schwabinchen” campaign.
Update: That kid’s video footage (from the first link) got showed on the news here in Sydney tonight!
