The most enjoyable part of a Jump2 is the surprise you get when it isn't down for maintenance...   Don't get me wrong, it's a fun ride... When it runs...But it's down for maintenance more than any o

I would like a Jump2, but only if they could flip the seats to the other side of those arms, facing out. I'd much rather watch the views than other riders' faces.

Thanks for sending that link. Now I want KI to have a Jump2

My guess is that next season it'll be back open. If the ride still has problems it'll be closed again and probably removed. I'd rather it just be removed.. Rivertown could expand, and there will be no asian temples in a western town.

Now that CF owns the park and is in the process of de-Paramountization, I think that maintaining TR:TR is not a priority.

Then what they have been doing with it all year?

There have been numerous reports that the themeing has been removed for repair and/ or replacement.

Obviously they are doing something.

And I do believe I remember someone saying that they lose the license to trtr and ijst next year.. so it could be a re-theme or they could just be repairing and re-newing the license next year. ;)

Do all top spins break often, or is Tomb Raider special? ;)

The last time I was at KD back in august TR:FF was stuck just short of the platform so I guess it's all top spins that suffer from frequent downtime.Zamperla's Roto-shake ride was also plauged by mechanical problems which led to their removal in just about every US park that had one.

BGE also had a ride similar to SFKK's Quake,known as Gladiator's Gauntlet & like Quake the ride suffered from frequent downtime which led to it's removal in the late 90's I believe.

That could be really cool they could turn that ugly box on the ouside into looking like a BIG FORT .. althought again thats a lot of money to do lol it would still be pretty nifty ;)

^But in the western town of Tazba, you have eastern boys and western girls.

Ooo, you're so close...

"In a West End town, a dead end world

The East End boys and West End girls"

Thanks for playing... :P

Close to what? And I did not know I was playing.

If you ever watchign the Discorvy video they explained those noises.

He's not talking about the noise from the resistor banks. He means the noises from the ride unit itself. I agree the noises would seem odd to a random guest, however I think the fact that it's in a metal building makes it worse than it would be outside with ambient noise.

^ Depends on what your opinion of lengthy is.

Maverick's heartline.

MF's elevator cable has snapped a couple of times. As well as the main computer has blown at least once.

Etc.

But I was actually leaning more towards the early issues of WT, TTD, and KK.

With that I guess I will agree. Except for the fact that Intamin has not gone broke.

Well they have installed all of those coasters for over $100 million total since 2000.

That is not exactly a bad 7 years.

They have also installed almost 50 coasters around the World in that same time span. With another 7 coming in 2008.

Apparently there are many parks that are not scared off from Intamin's recent operating issues.

I thought you were trying to quote "West End Girls" by The Pet Shop Boys. My bad if you weren't. :)
