It will definitely reopen this year (very likely on opening day). SFGAm got their center hub back in late November and should be putting the ride back together now (or already finshed re-assembling it).

I really do not like this idea. If there is a legitimate legal issue with using just "Great America", fine, put something else in front of it, but Knott's Great America just makes no sense.

There was only one death on the Whizzer. The accident occured when two trains bumped in the loading area. The death had nothing to do with only having seatbelts.
