P. 456: Information about Christmas Town 2021!

Recommended Posts

Yeah, it was being able to see the fans that really ruined the whole experience. Come on guys, try a little harder.

 

It's also being able to see the building around you that makes it so nauseating - you can tell how much you're moving. If you're gonna move that much, I think you need to enclose it like Star Tours or something.

PLUS it isn't even video, it's pictures moved across the screen.

 

Huh? They installed new digital projectors when they made the change to Europe in the Air.

I thought Europe In The Air was great until the ride itself, could have been much better. My goodness does the video shake and make you feel like throwing up instantly, and those transitions from one location to the other are ridiculous! Was this built post Soarin'?

^I rode it twice during the Passholder ERT this morning. They were late getting it going because of problems the night before, and it went down again (for the day) at about the time the park opened. They hope to have it running again tomorrow.

 

Like many launched rides, Verbolten is a bit temperamental. I was with Kyle and Company today, and Kyle received a text from a friend of his who had just experienced his first Volcano rollback at KD.

 

On a more upbeat note, Mach Tower is back after its extended downtime last week and has been "rock solid," according to the crew.

I swear Verbolten is a new ride it is going to have it's aches and pains. If I remember correctly Big Bad Wolf went thru the same startup pains as well. Yea I rode it the first year it opened but never got to ride it the last year but then I was out on the road.

I've actually been surprised by the lack of downtime on Verbolten. With all that's involved with that ride there are infinite points of failure, but it opened on schedule and hasn't really been down all that much for your average new ride. I've been able to take multiple rides every time i've been to the park since it opened.

^I was at the park with some friends yeasterday, and while it was a bit of a bummer that Verbolten was down, we still enjoyed ourselves--along with a nice big lunch at the Festhaus.

Just got back from the park and Verbolten AND Mach Tower down all day!! No facebook post, no web page post. just a sheet of paper saying Verbolten closed AFTER you pay for parking. I would not care so much but my parents and my wife made the trip out today to ride it for the first time.

 

Mach tower is the biggest piece of crap. I have been about 8 times since it opened in LATE August last year and it has been down all day 5 out of 8 times.

 

If a new ride is down thats fine, but the least you can do is the absolute best to inform your customers.
