Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit closed for 'maintenance'
Written by Gareth H
On Wednesday Universal Orlando closed Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit for "Maintenance". However, earlier this month its manufacturer issued a service bulletin about one of the parts.Tweet
The bulletin reads as follows:
2. September 2010
The fix could take up to 3 months, so will RRR be closed for that long?
Universal Orlando Resorts' official spokesman issued a press release:
"We are obsessive about safety. We have aggressive inspection and safety programs in place for all our rides and attractions. Those programs meet or exceed all manufacturer guidelines. Anything in a September 2nd manufacturer’s advisory would have been dealt with weeks ago. Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit is temporarily closed for unrelated maintenance."
Anyone visiting Universal please keep us updated with anything that may be going on with this ride.
