    Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway - Disneyland

    I heard somewhere the DL version will be tracked to save money on maintenance due to the problems that have with RotR. They didn't want to double their problems.

    Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway - Disneyland

    Part of the charm of the HMH is the rhyme. At least they aren't singing "What's this?" constantly.

    Knotts needs a maze in the red barn themed to boxing and wrestling. Imagine being body slammed by undead wrestlers.

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disneyland

    So it looks like Verizon and T-Mobile are the best to be with in the park. That kind of makes sense since my daughter was able to give a play by play of Pirates on her phone for the entire ride. It was really annoying.

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disneyland

    How are the closing/opening procedures for operations any different from any other ride? How long does it take to open and close?

    All things Knotts Berry Farm

    In the case of Ghost Rider and Hang Time there is one loading, one final break area and one on the track. Excellerator only has two. One loading and other in the final break area. Coast Rider is a wild mouse like Goofy's Sky school. Cars are constantly moving on a conveyor belt and dispatched as...

    One loading. One unloading and one on the track. It means they only have the ride time to get that train dispatched before the next one comes into the waiting area.

    I think that is pretty rare. Every time I've been there, there is always a train unloading as the other loads. That is the reason they wait on the outside tressel to see if the unload area is clear. I think they run at least three trains and maybe even four sometimes.

    Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway - Disneyland

    I hope this ride is more reliable than RotR since it is just screens with a tracked vehicle. There is no reason for this ride to suffer the same mechanical problems as RotR since the tech is about as simple as Fantasyland dark ride. I hope it is a people eater.

    Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance opening reports and using Boarding Groups at Disneyland

    Why does anything need twelve hours of maintenance every night? What is so poorly built and engineered that they have to spend half a day fixing it for the last three months? Seems like Disney should be suing the subcontractors that built this ride if that is the case. Look at all the negative...

    All things Knotts Berry Farm

    I don't really see that practice at Knotts however Magic Mountain does it all the time even when the place is packed. Knott's coasters such as Hang Time has three cars on the track. Silver Bullet, Ghost Rider, Excellerator and Jaguar have two. Obviously Montezuma only has one. I can't see them...

    Is it "okay" to expect better?

    It takes a guest death to make executive changes on preventative maintenance. See Big Thunder Mountain.

    Is it "okay" to expect better?

    Another thing we should expect to be better is a reliable ride experience. Sure complicated ride systems have opening day bugs but Disney's track record on this kind of thing is reliability doesn't improve for at least a year. See Test Track. Everyday at a Disney park we see rides close down...
