Re: windseeker is open
They have guidelines in place to not let bumping happen. They will not run it in high winds and they make it a high priority to fill all the seats. If all the seats are filled, there's very little chance that bumping can happen when the ride starts to slow down on the decent.
The conditions in that video were not favorable. It was really windy and there were only a few people on it. It was after that run that they decided how exactly they wanted to handle the issue. In all it's a safe ride, there's really nothing to worry about Chief. I encourage you to ride it, it's quite exhilarating.
Plus, Cedar Point wouldn't run it if they were certain it was a big problem.
