Skyrush has been down for weeks and we're worried about the reopening date of Merry Dip Fun Slides and a Boomerang...

what a world.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

I was next on the ride when it closed down for the day on April 21st. Assuming that was the day it closed down for good... but I'm not a local so I couldn't say for sure.

The weird part was that they were able to cycle a train around the track empty to get the people in the brake run into the station without an Evac. So it didn't seem like something major with the mechanics of the ride itself at the time. But the fact that they called a closure in the middle of the day that it wouldn't reopen, and it's been down for weeks, clearly that's not the case (unless it's a construction thing for the new area being so close? Someone mentioned that it could be the reason why as well). There wasn't any commotion or ambulance's or anything so nobody got ejected as much as I always think I'm going to... so yeah.

The Intamin curse strikes again! Now that it got Volcano it has moved on to its next victim :lol:. Hopefully it is back up soon as it is such a fun ride.

We were told that they are waiting for a part from Intamin and it would be back up as soon as it is safe to do so. Hopefully that will be soon as I finally got my hubby to actually commit to riding it (his first time).
