    Nice job!
    Disneyland's closed for all of 2011. See you in 2012. Snow White is now a water ride, Matterhorn has a fullsize basketball court where the Clippers have relocated to, and King Arthur's Carousel is suspended 250ft. in the air.
    Enjoy it while it lasts! LOL!

    What happened to the old Disney movie opening? The new ones just too long and not classic.

      I'm a coaster freak and I should love Rip Ride Rockit but it is far too temperamental. Every time I visit USF, it seems to be having technical difficulties. I stood at the top of the queue for 90 minutes at Christmas 2009 only to not ride it at all. Another time, the car I was in had to have an engineer caller to open our lap bars and we had to walk down the edge of the track to the exit.

      I knew it had to be closed for refurb for a while so on my recent trip to the park, I gave it a go again. It was the same again though. When we reached the top of the queue, am engineer was there performing checks on the trains. We were seated in the front row and as the train began to leave the station, my fathers lap bar popped up. No good. Needless to say, we rode it without issue.

      Later that day, we stopped for a coffee and we saw people being led off the ride at the top of the second lift down some 150 feet of stairs!! These factors combined leads me to believe that Universal were sold a dud with this ride and I, despite loving coasters and having rid them in parks all over the world, will not ride this coaster again.
