  • News More thunder updates.

    I posted a thread a few days ago saying that opening date may get pushed back again maybe even march. For the Westside attractions department list says Thunder re opening is TBA.

    Let me tell you more of what is going on. Besides that's.

    I have been told by the CMs in the test and adjust team for thunder that testing is not ready for a Febuary opening. 5 trains need to be tested, they are still only testing 1 trains. Each train when it comes back from a refurb needs to be cycled for many hours before it can operate with humans on board. The problems is that there is a brand new train cycling through a brand new ride with a brand new ride control system. So many many many bugs need to be worked in order to make both trains an the ride work together. It seems like once we can get one train to cycle trough the attraction enough times correctly, then testing all the other trains will go by much quicker.

    Also, since it is a brand new ride control system, a brand new Operating Guide needs to be written. The Testing team have been writing it since testing began but with testing going on and new difficulties popping up while cycling, the Operating Guide is continuously being re-written several times.

    Once they do have an Operating guide set, they need to train for an opening crew. All cast members who used to work the attraction before the refurb, lost all their knowledge and have to be retrained on the attraction as if they never worked it before which takes about 4-5 days. There are not that many cast members left who worked the attractions before, this will be mostly a brand new crew, applications and interviews had to be done to be considered to join thunder. And they need to train lots and lots of cast members before they can reopen.

    So again, for the Westside attractions CMs, their daily notes say Thunder Opening is TBA, they may need to push back opening to March if things dnt improve. They are still shooting for a Febuary opening. A final decision has not been made which is why the parks website is still sticking to their Feb date.
