I certainly have noticed that it doesnt always close fully before the drops commence, I believe at busier periods it is an element that isnt always utilised, if you were to visit on a quiet day you should fully experience it.

Maybe it's not prominent enough for my senses to spot it. :/ definately going to grab a back seat and look at it when I can next get up there. And I rode it twice about a week ago. And before that I rode it 5 times last year and I really cant remember last year. But I would bet my eye sight (which appears to be crap lol) that it definately didnt go dark in there last week. Hmmm is there someone who's been on there within the last week or two that can guarantee me it does work?It's always there and always works as far as I know. Have a look behind you next time you go on.
