It is with regret that I report my sighting of an incident with Rameses Revenge when I was on-park on Saturday 13th September.
The load before me had just started their first cycle, when there was a loud noise and the gondola stopped (what amuses me is that it stopped in the same position as last year). I, wanting lunch and knowing it wouldn't be fixed all too quickly, left the queue.
When passing the ride later in the day, I saw that the ride was empty, back to the bottom and with no restraints cut, but it wasn't open. According to the website, it hasn't been open since.
I'm very concerned for the ride. It is, in my opinion, in the top 3 rides at Chessington, and with its downtime over the 2013/2014 seasons, it seems likely that any serious incident would finish it off.
I hope that they are just waiting for a part.
