With DC Rivals Hyper Coaster being open for just over a year it has entered its first extended maintinance period. However it seems to be some major working happen to a ride that is only just 1 year old. Photo credit to Gold Coast Theme Parks.

So 3 pieces of track from the Air time hill have been removed.

Seems odd for a ride thats been only opened a month.

Yeah, that is certainly not normal yearly maintenance! Especially after year one!

This is pretty bizarre. Hopefully it’s just a track integrity issue and not a reshaping of the hill.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Very strange... It will be interesting to find out what's actually going on.

So I can only think that it could be excessive forces and they're reprofiling (which is odd, as you'd think they would just trim it), excessive vibration and they're replacing the track, or they have found problems with the standard of manufacture/construction and are fixing it. Any locals have any better ideas? Was this part of the ride really THAT forceful? Or had any uncomfortable forces? It's all a bit odd to see such drastic maintenance a year after opening.
