Poor thing. Shake Rattle and Roll is in rehab, according to a statement purportedly released by her agent. At least she admits she has a problem. That's the first step on the long road to recove

There's concrete evidence of where the ride was. Terp...running for the door.

It hasn't been closed all season. It's only been closed for about a month. They've been working on it. Either they are in fact waiting on parts, or it's a time-consuming repair. Hopefully it'll reopen soon.

Because it broke or needed maintenance.

I agree that "waiting for parts" is the most likely reason it has been down as long as it has. For the first week or so of it being down, there were signs of active work being done, then it was put up on the wooden supports it has sat on for the rest of the time it has been down.

I get text message notifications whenever Kings Island PR posts a tweet for the purpose of "Tweet-Ups" and I had a lump go in my throat when I saw a tweet come across saying "A popular attraction is leaving the park a week from today". I clicked on the link and it was talking about the freaking noodle. I thought it was going to be SRR, thankfully it wasn't because I would of been very mad.

I wouldn't think you'd prop up the cars that way for general maintenance to be honest. So agreeing with the bandwagon and saying parts are the answer. Seems like they may be keeping the cars up because of a part that may hold them up.

Kind of doubt it, Dollywood seem to be "poking the bear" on that one. To my memory, Timber Tower was still under warranty and Dollywood was trying to get a part that Huss claimed wasnt covered until the warranty. I dont believe the ride ever operated again. Also I doubt SR&R has any warranty left on any parts.

Maybe someone pulled on a tree one too many times while riding the ride, I mean they do warn when riding that ride about 50 times to not pull on the trees, maybe there was more reasons than just wanting to not damage the trees. :P

Delirium is a Huss ride... Remember how long it took to get a part for that a few years ago. SR&R isn't exactly a new ride, we'll see how long it takes to stroll down to the local Budapest Sears for a replacement part.

Pure speculation......

I wonder of a cast piece broke (cracked??) that is part of the whole lifting device that surrounds the center spindle. That would explain why the whole ride is lifted off the ground.

A piece like that would not be on a shelf & would take a considerable amount of time to make.
