      It was on the news here yesterday that a second person has been injured. Universal said they will no longer set both tracks off at once, the departures will be staggered.

      Sad news, whilst safety always come first. I don't think the ride is worth it without that great moment when you are racing towards the other coaster :(

      I wonder if they ever found out what had struck him.

      We were there on Tuesday and the ride was down all day.

      I didn't know about the second accident but when we rode the attraction on Wednesday, was surprised that the coasters set off at different times. Safety has to come first.

      I wonder if they will have to change the name now? They are not actually dueling anmore, but safety does come first.
