  • News Jolley Trolley to close for good April 14th

    Hello Tokyo Fans, just saw this on Screamscape, seems like the Jolly Trolley is going the way of Disneyland in CA, It will close April 14th becuase the pathways in Toontown are much too crowded.

    Shame, but I guess safety comes first.

    I probably should have taken a ride on one when I had the chance.

        Is it for safety reasons? Or are they just looking to cut costs?

          JoeInJpn mentioned this a few days ago in one of the topics here. I however... am torned about this. The Jolly Trolley is one of those little things than enhances the topic of the Toontown's theming and I am not to happy about it's dismisal. On the other hand, I have always found it to be silly to have a CM walking in front of the Jolly Trolley to make sure people are not in the way of the short ride... which apparently, has never been an issue with the Jolly Trolley at DL. Apparently this is a "safety minded" decision in the part of OLC, which somehow could also be viewed as a reduction in work force in that area. Seems to me to be an over-reaction in the part of OLC. Thumbs down from me.

              For sake of thematic depth...even if they don't run the trolley...I wish they would keep it and turn it into some kind of food cart.

                Well, they could add a loop to the track.

                  I think it's a matter of economics: it takes two CMs to run an attraction that services a TINY group of guests. Doesn't make sense from a money point of view.

                  I'm sad to see it go as well.

                    Actually, it took 6 CMs to operate. This is OLC and their staffing levels are higher than those at the WDC. With two trolleys running daily, there were 4 CMs there, plus the two keeping guard at the queue. Just like the good old days used to be the MK...

                        6 CMs? Well, there's your answer.

                          I do not thing OLC would close the ride due to staffing levels. Otherwise, other rides and areas of the park would not be staffed with so many CMs as they usually are. This to me, seems like a case of safety more than saving money.. but what do I know? I wasn't even awared they had closed the Trolley at DL in CA.

                            The trolley at Disneyland is now welded to the tracks at the "midtown" stop. It's a photo location, usually swarmed over by Disneyland's obnoxious pay-for-play photographers.

                              ^^ Won't be surprised if that is how the Tokyo trolleys end up. Another opportunity for a memorable photo location at 1,000yen a pop.
