The Flume closed on Monday due to problems and today it was still closed, I've been told it may be down for some time and it's unknown when it will reopen.
Well i was going to start a topic about that but sod it.
A boat actually got jammed in the trough, it lifted up and managed to jam itself on the corner just after the first drop. This then caused a back-log of other boats to crash into it right up to the 'splash-down' of the first drop. The ride was then stopped and evacuated and remained closed all day. It was pretty serious and i have never seen this kind of thing happen before.[/quote]
Yeah, over 40 + meters of trough liner replaced, and some massive holes sealed up
On the flume doesnt it have sensors to let the lift know if the boat has cleared the hill?
Yes it does, it has what are called "Run out rods" if a boat goes over these, and say they get stuck down or the boat takes to long to get down the rush, it will show up a "tranist time error" on that lift
