A member of staff told me that 35 headsets were out of operation by the end of last night, I presume it stayed closed today so they could work on them.

The trims were definitely off yesterday!

If they are permanently de-activated now, then we can assume the park are listening and that this will be a very popular decision indeed if it proves to be a long-term one.


You could definitely tell on the first drop that it was trimmed (especially towards the back), looking forward to seeing if they are deactivated when I go on Tuesday. If they are, then I will be a happy bunny!

I have a feeling that it's closed today due to the heat, meaning yesterday evenings hiccup was un-related?

So posters have appeared around Galactica today saying the ride will be open but not using VR. Shame really but for 35 headsets to have broke over the weekend and the VR not being used for now could this mean its a bit more of VR system issue rather than Individual headset glitches?

Galactica's being moving queues very quickly (Guessing around 1200/300 PPH the past day). I wonder why.. ;)

Just thinking about Thirteen - if the switch track was in the wrong position, surely the computer should have stopped the train and not sent it forward? It concerns me that the system doesn't know the position of the switch track and could potentially send a train through the reverse section when there no track waiting. Or could this have been during testing and therefore under manual operation?

I feel the explanation would be that the computer thought the switch track was in place and so sent the train forwards :)

Rita was down for a long time yesterday - I think a train didn't clear the final block before the exit station. When we were on Oblivion, that broke down for about half an hour. We were stuck in the station (both stations were in operation) and I felt really sorry for everyone stuck on the break run. We got off so it could test and then eventually we got back on the complete the coaster. We were asked to go to guest services to get a PRP. Duel stopped twice when we were on it (maybe because of the heat). And the rapids were down for most of the day.

The train was missing a carriage when I visited on Monday 1st of August. I think one of the central carriages have been removed not the rear one.

I had the joy (genuinely I loved it) when I was on park back in May of Oblivion being stopped just before the stall section at the top, for about 20 minutes. Great views of the park.

The station team got suited up and came up on the harness and used (something I'd never noticed) a phone at the top of the ride to call the station. The op had stopped it because they'd seen someone with a phone out filming. When he asked on the phone who it was she "didn't quite know" which was a bit of a cop out.

The girl next to me starts utterly freaking out that the ride is going to crash. Tears. Hysteria. The lot.

This despite the two lads - who were a good laugh actually - stating that the ride was fine and had been stopped due to someone with their phone out. They basically said the ride could either go now - or face another 30 mins of being stuck as one of them would have to go back down to the station, retrieve more safety stuff, access the ride carriage, harness her up, then lead her off.

Her boyfriend told him just to restart the ride.

yes th13teen was down until about 4.
Spinball opened late, Rita broke down about dinner, galactica went down for a short time and smiler was down around 2 as well
Oblivion and nemmy was leading the way in terms of realiability

Could this be a powercut like Scarefest 2013?
