The big news in the amusement industry this week was the 47-page indictment that was handed down over a horrific amusement park accident from a few years ago. Arrests have been made. We'll talk about the story and what it means for the industry.

During our Quick Hits segment, the guys talk about several of this week's most interesting stories in the amusement industry, including:

  • Xcellerator at Knotts Berry Farm has reopened! It looks like Hangtime is not far behind!
  • VR is coming to Lex Luthor Drop of Doom at Six Flags Magic Mountain
  • A gigantic T-Rex dinosaur caught fire at a small park in Colorado. We have the inside scoop on what happened.
  • Then, we are joined by James Barber from the Coaster Talk Podcast. James is an eighth grader from Virginia who Mike and EB have been mentoring. They sent James (and his mom) to the Media Day for Kings Dominion's new RMC - Twisted Timbers! James will tell us all about the ride and whether or not he thinks it will be a hit.
