Hurricane Harbor 2012 Expansion

"Apparently it has something to do with the other major problem with the slide… there is apparently a strict 200 pound weight limit. Since there is virtually no chance of having a pair of adults go for a spin and still weigh under 200 total pounds, it was just easier to eliminate the double tubes entirely from the attraction. The fault apparently lies in a grey area somewhere between Polin’s attraction engineering and the much stricter building codes in the US compared to Polin’s native land of Turkey.
Time to wait and see if Polin and Six Flags can perhaps fix this problem, or if this will go down as Polin’s one and only installation in the United States."
The original sign said 200 pound weight limit for a single rider, 400 pound weight limit for 2 riders so I wonder if that was the problem which also delayed the opening of the ride.
