I've seen this guy on Fox as a guest commentator, good guy, medically retired Marine Staff Sgt Bomb Tech. He has overcome his disability and continued on with his life.

It's only true if it's on this forum where opinions are facts and facts are opinions

    I would say, "Fire that DillWeed" working the ride just for his attitude and for being a Montard.

Our policies and procedures are reviewed and adjusted on a regular basis to ensure we continue to accommodate the needs of our guests while simultaneously maintaining a safe environment for everyone." -- Six Flags

    Having been on many of their rides, the retaining bars go across your legs so I'm guessing they're not too sure how safely someone with artificial legs can enjoy their rides.

    Solution, upgrade the retaining features ($money$). He mentions how other theme parks bent-over backwards to help him.

    SixFlags got some splaining to do.

    Back in the day we called the ride tenders carneys. The were an outside the box group to put it politely. Now they're young clueless children. I try to avoid such places.
