Galactica seems out of action long term!?

I hate to be a miserable one and one not open for change but the day they decided to put VR on this ride is the day they killed it. I wouldn't mind but it genuinely isn't even that good a VR experience, I went on it with the new headset not couple of weeks ago and it still doesn't work correctly. The idea is good I loved that but operations wise its a complete disaster.

It's still saying open from 10am every morning on ride times, and every morning after 10, still unavailable, frustrating! Just say it's closed from the beginning, its less disappointment.

Hi guys
Was on park yesterday and spoke to a few members of staff about galactica and they just said they are having to wait for parts but they don't know how long it's going to be, they couldn't elaborate anymore than that unfortunately.

Does anyone remember if Air had this many technical problems? I mean, Galactica seems like it's had a fair bit of bad luck, in comparison to some of the other rides... if it's not the VR causing problems, it the actual ride! Let's hope that it's sorted soon and that's it for the rest of the season.

I'm not sure if this has been discussed before but I was wondering why did they remove the single rider queue for Galactica that Air had?
And I'm really sorry. I don't remember many down periods for Air but I wasn't at the park that much and it was tooo long ago for me to remember...

It's always had a few more problems than the likes of nemesis, it's a much more complex ride concerning the carriages, being that your hoisted into the flying position from a normal sitting position, so a relatively complex ride has now been made twice as complicated.

Yay! It's been closed so much I'd actually given up on it completely!
