Rip Ride Rockit Closed Indefinitely

Thanks to our friends at  attraction tickets .info for the following story.

The Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster at Universal Studios FloridaRip Ride Rockit will remain closed indefinitely, it was confirmed on Monday.

Universal Officials claim that the unscheduled closure has nothing to do with the  safety warning from Maurer Sohne, the German steel company that makes the ride’s vehicles. Who stated that the coupling used to hold the vehicle together may not be fatigue endurable.

 Universal Orlando said the safety concerns from Maurer Sohne would have been addressed soon after the memo’s release and the ride’s closure was not related to the safety bulletin. However, Maurer Sohne said the repair solution or new design would not be available for two to three months.

Universal closed the attraction last Wednesday and said it was undergoing unrelated maintenance. It said the closure was temporary.

Universal Orlando spokesman Tom Schroder said on Monday that the ride’s extended closure was due to the park’s decision to do annual maintenance on the attraction.

“The Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit was operating safely when we closed it for maintenance and it will be operating safely when we reopen it,” said Schroder.

“We don’t forecast when an attraction will reopen from annual maintenance due to the fluid nature of the maintenance work,” Schroder said.
