Enterprise not vertical?

Postby SpaceRides » Tue Jul 22, 2014 9:18 am

This probably happened a while ago, but since when does the Enterprise only go about halfway up? And why the lame change?

It's somewhat new that it only goes halfway up. I rode Enterprise either last year or in 2012 and it almost went completely vertical. I wonder what caused the change. I remember the cycle being short too, by the time I got to the full angle, it only did a few rotations before the arm started to lower.

It just happened recently. I noticed it on Sunday and asked an employee. He said they are working on it. It wasn't like that two weeks ago when I rode it. Very disappointing. I love that ride.

I noticed this too, as well as the fact that the cars were hitting the trees around the area. This is recent, as it didn't do this last weekend.

Ok. Well I'm glad to hear it seems temporary. It'd hate to see it go the way of the Musik Express not going backwards anymore. Haha. When was that? Late 80s?

BTW, if Enterprise doesn't go vertical, I think it should be shut down until it can. For that ride to not to be able to complete it's intended cycle is similar to being shown an old school comfort food dinner but not being allowed to eat anything but the salad and bread.

It's just wrong.

Intresting, any word if it's fixed? Not too many of these rides around anymore, would hate to see it removed.
