P. 623: Universal's Mardi Gras 2023 details announced!

Recommended Posts

^ The ride has to be tested for 100 hours. so everytime it takes a lap like for example if it takes 2 minutes to run through the track and back to the station that 2 minutes is counted toward a hour of testing, then it goes again and then its got 4 minutes and etc. basically its the overall time it takes for it to get 100 hours of running time.

Dude! You're awesome! Thanks a bunch for that info. Any brilliant insight on the board foot, and green mile conundrum? Cause my day is a standstill right now until I get that figured out. I'm cool with the bakers dozen issue as I really only care that I get more cupcakes when I go to the pastry shop because of it.

 

MOD EDIT by larrygator: Board Foot measurement relates to volume (incorporating the thickness of the wood). Square foot measurement relates to surface area. Use 1 inch wood and the number will be the same.

 

Guy, I know you are excited by RR&R and HHN but stay focused and on topic.

And I have no idea what 'Missing' relates to. Possibly a scarezone?

 

I think the give away paragraph to 'Missing' is the second one. It states:

 

"The overnight classic film brought a repeat group of rowdy teens into the theater every night the movie played. Throughout the run of the picture, three students in particular grew more and more rambunctious, often disrupting screenings with rude comments and horseplay. They were eventually barred from the facility by management."

 

That sounds like behavior for, say, Rocky Horror...

If there's anything that could match the energy and excitement of a weekend of Christian rock, it's Universal Studios®! Your favorite rides and attractions-including the brand new Hollywood Rip Ride RockitSM roller coaster-are all included in your Rock the Universe ticket, with most attractions open until 1am!

just found this on the Rock the Universe website, so hopefully it should be open in September at the latest. Dont know if anybody spotted this or not but oh well.

So the 'missing' story with the sewers could be related to 'The Spawning'.

 

This appears to be correct. The sewers connect the theatre to the butcher shop. Someone is killing people in the theatre and then using the sewers to take their bodies to the butcher shop and making concession food out of them.

 

I love how it appears we will have three houses with backgrounds that are so intertwined. I am still not sure what the Spawning house will be like. It is pretty clear that we will be going through sewers but what is spawning in them.

Man, come on Maurer. I had higher hopes for you than this! We recently found out that after it was running with 4 trains for the first time it hit some snags here in there and in the end there was 3 issues..(we thought it might have been a dispatch problem)

 

Couple of friends are chiming in with news about the coaster..

 

I talked to my source again today and mentioned my dispatch issue theory. He said that wasn't one of the problems. He still wouldn't tell me what the problems are, but that there is a reason almost no testing has happened since Sunday. And that NO ONE has ridden it since then.To me it is sounding more structural in nature. Apparently these 3 problems are MAJOR issues.

The one thing I have heard from word of mouth was that structural problems have been the main and only reason that has made this coaster delayed so much.

 

Take that for what its worth. This came from a guy I was on Loch Ness at BGE with who said he was working on the coaster (Forgot what job he said he had). I figured he was making this stuff up, which I still think he was. He said the lift, rings, etc had nothing to do with the delay.

I think the gay music selection is haunting the ride. Re-select and the problems will all be solved Universal.

 

Actually. There is nothing remotely GAY about most of the music selection. Well maybe the Donna Summer and the Gloria Gaynor tracks could be considered somewhat GAY, but I could think of a ton more GAY anthems than what they chose.

I heard some of the welds developed some cracks and that usually means a big chunk of the welds will have to be x-rayed to make sure they are good. If not, they will have to be re-welded which definitely could take some time.
