As with many items on a roller coaster/amusement rides (heck, same with airplanes), required maintenance is done every so many times a ride is used and/or hours of service. The standards start with the manufacture.Oooh. Very interesting. Thanks for the correct info
Question for you, do you know if at a certain amount of rides or months or years do they just replace the cable with a new one as a extra precaution just because its been on the ride a while? If not how often do they change it out for guest safety?
As for the cable, it is inspected on a very regular basis, and no matter what, it gets changed. About every 2 years is the ride's requirement.
