Park News - (6/19/2015) I'm told that Dragon's Fury has reopened at Chessington WOA after being closed following The Smiler accident.
(6/6/15) According to a press release from Merlin Entertainment, they are "enhancing our safety standards by issuing an additional set of safety protocols and proceedures" to the chain of parks "multi-car rollercoasters" effective immediately. While they put these new procedures into effect, several of the chains coasters will be closed: The Smiler at Alton Towers and Saw: The Ride at Thorpe Park remain closed until further notice while they take the corrective steps to ensure that another accident like the one at Alton Towers on The Smiler can never take place again. Nothing was wrong with Saw: The Ride, it was just a similar style ride from the same manufacture.
Two more coaster will be closed for the time being from Chessington World of Adventures: Dragon's Fury and Rattlesnake.
