  • [Question] whats with the down rides today?

    Hey guys. I am spending a nice day at the dlr today and I am just wondering if anyone knows why all the rides are down! btmrr was closed so we made our way to pirates, which was also down, then onto splash mountain which was also out of order. So we crossed the esplanade and found goofy's sky school down with people stuck on the track in their vehicles and screamin' is also down at the moment. Is this typical for a warm busy summer day? Anyone lucky enough to be on the stuck sky school or thunder mountain?

    Other than the down rides its a nice day to be out and me and the BF ran into Brooke and Robin Lopez, the NBA players.

    this typically happens when the parks are busy
    like last December 28 when Disneyland and DCA hit capacity
    I would guess that the rides are being used so much without proper maintnence from less down time during summer park hours

      Maybe there was a power outage?

        Mickey's Fun Wheel was down too. I use the Mouse Wait app on my phone and noticed the crowd index was 40/100 which is low, but the wait times all seemed high.

          I think the answer as to why all the rides were down is because Skynet is taking over. Quick, someone call John Connor.

              It could have been one of two things: Either they did it on purpose to make your day the worst possible, or it was technical difficulties.

                Interesting. We were there this past weekend and noticed that POTC was running really slow and that they were pulling boats out of the water right after Barbosa. Indy was stopping every 30 seconds and then right after we got off broke down. Screamin' was down and I think GRR went down as well. Probably use high usage. We all need a break every now and then.

                  Things happen causing the attractions to go down.

                    Nah, I wouldn't call it normal for a lot of attractions to go down, but it does happen.

                    I was also there this weekend and saw a boat being pulled off of POTC (it was so neat!!) and Indiana Jones kept stalling, but that's not too out of the oridnary.

                    I was there in mid-July and there were so many down rides! :P It seemed that everything I tried getting on was down, it happens. I could see how easily it could happen on a busy day with there being more cars going, more people there, more stress on the rides, etc. As long as no one gets hurt!

                      How many techs does the parks have to respond to down rides?
                      Say if one ride goes down then shortly after two more go down.
                      Do the tech guys get backed up?

                        I got kicked off 4 rides today due to them being down.

                        Splash
                        Indy
                        Grizzly
                        Goofy Sky

                        Like I said, I was on each ride. On Griz, I was looking down the drop, about to go down, but instead sat 45min and waited for the water around me to drain out and walked down the mtn. It was cool... kinda.

                          I was there in late June and on our last day there virtually everything in Paradise Pier was down. The day before, Indiana Jones had been down until right before closing rendering our Fastpasses useless the next day (I covered the date on them and still used them the next day though because that is a ridiculous rule for another thread). When we went back over to Disneyland that night I remember it seemed lik every E-ticket except for Space Mountain was down at one point all very close to each other. This seems abnormal. I've worked in the theme park business when I was younger and no park has ever had rides break down that much all within such a proximity to each other. Heck, even previous Disneyland trips hadn't been that bad. I know stuff happens but comparatively speaking, it happens an awful lot at Disneyland and I think that if it takes more maintenance or whatever they need to step up their game

                            We noticed all the down rides today too, but the crowd Level was so low! Mermaid's line started inside the building, Monsters was a walk on, Star Tours took 35-40 minutes. Tikki Room was maybe a third empty seats. We found a good place to watch the parade after it had already started going by. It was an interesting day to be there.

                              It could be a power outage or just some crazy coincidence.
