Good to see it's back up and running, hopefully the fact they've fixed it instead of just leaving it means we'll see it operating next year :)

I've been on since it reopened last week. The introduction and main ride hasn't changed but the final ending maze-type thing has. From my experiences on the 16th and 17th of July there are no longer live actors (such as the people in gas masks) which I remember from last time, although it does seem a bit longer: there seemed to be a darker area where you have to duck under a curtain thing. Other than that it seems to be pretty much the same :)

Not sure if its in relation to the closure but a woman on FB has mentioned she was hit by something in the face while riding Rita today. Could of added to the downtime but I'm guessing it was technical.

When i was on park last week Air stopped operations. We were told that they were checking the ride area making sure there was nothing blocking it. Not sure if that was true but i saw a man with a staff member who had a clipboard writing down what he was saying, maybe he got hit by something like a bush. Then they sent 2 staff member round on the front 1 on the left and 1 on the right to possibly check that it was clear,strange how they use ride staff not maintence. Also it was on its ruduced capicity again on 2 trains. What was supossed to be a 10min queue ended to be 40!

Nemesis had a little bit of downtime this morning and rita was down all morning. Also the BBC were definitely trying to do some reporting when I was there 1 or 2 weeks ago, about 5-6 kids with BBC school report lanyards in X sector and Forbidden Valley, nice to see the media has spy's :lol

On park today, NST was down all day, Enterprise & Oblivion has temporary stoppages. Went on Enterprise and no. 14 pod sounds really unhealthy, it was screeching so much. Enterprise needs some TLC, sounded like metal grinding on metal when in motion.

Can you link a source for N:ST being under another design update? Wonder what they'd be doing this time?

The reason that's been cited is 'maintenance purposes'.

NST was down all day today, and for a fair amount of the morning th13teen was down. Apparently in the afternoon Air was down, and towards the end of the day rita was down, with half of the rollback fins up (first half nearest to the station were up), and th13teen was running on 2 trains, probably because it was quiet.
