I just got home TODAY from a vacation in Branson, MO where this happened. There were tons of candlelight vigils going on. If we had chosen our activities differently, that could have been us. Scary shit

Tons of lawsuits coming.

- Captain advised where the life jackets were but told folks they weren't mandatory.

My son was on this ride just days before it happened. Still sends chills down my spine.
