  • Trip Report Kind of not really a trip report, but some interesting things

    I was at DLR today and have some comments, questions and observations.

    When did they start rerouting the queue at BTMRR? It goes around normally until just about the turnstiles, they doubles back along the second line all the way back to under the tracks, then turns and goes through the turnstiles. Is this a permanent thing or do they do that during certain times?

    The Matterhorn queue was a little strange too. For no reason, right after you pass the eastern exit, instead of walking through that section between the queue building and flowers, we were routed outside that area around to the turnstiles. They had the normal part of the queue blocked off almost like it was for wheelchairs. Is this a new and/or permanent thing?

    I rode the east side Matterhorn. There was a car out of service with a big red tag on it that said "Brrrrrr". I'm not kidding! Does anyone know what that means? Is that just a fun way to mean out of service?

    I overheard one guest refer to "Innoventions" as "Interventions" and I had to chuckle.

    Finally, while riding the train I heard something that I thought only guests got wrong from time to time, but no, this time it was said by one of the conductors.

    "This is Tomorrowland Station, where you can ride Space Mountain and Autotopia." Yes, AUTOTOPIA! You would think CMs would know the right way to say it.

    That's an interesting BTMRR queue configuration. My only guess is that they do it to prevent the queue from backing up into all that congestion with the construction going on.

      The Brrrrr seems like just humor for whoever tagged the car.

        I'm a little confused on the Thunder queue.. if you mean it goes normally until you're parallel to the stairs, then you veer left and to the stairs, then that was rerouted (least I saw it) back in the beginning of February.
        And I could be wrong, but i thought Brrr was used throughout the park for an out of service vehicle
        And for the train script.. whoops. haha

          I asked a cm about the matterhorn queue because I was confused by it. The answer was they were testing a new bobsled (but of the same type..not a new configuration) on the track and wanted to keep the line out of the way and that they had changed the way wheelchairs load to keep people from cheating. The answer didn't make any sense to me however but I didn't have a chance to ask for clarification.
