Triceratops Discovery Trail closed midway through my visit in early January. I know this ride's apparently not one of the most popular there, or any good to be honest (I went into it knowing what people around these parts thought, and I tried my hardest to go along with it - it's a great concept on paper, but it just doesn't work). Is/was it just down for annual maintenance, or are a lot of people's dreams coming true?
Touchdown, I don't understand what you mean in your last post. Are you saying that the park put up the sign for Monkey McBeans Driving Machines just before they plan to getting rid of the ride all together? I read on Screamscape that the ride just may be opened soon because the sign has been put back up.
I really don't think that it will open though, because it's falsely rumored to open each and every year.
Wait a minute. I think I understand now. You mean that it wont be a "lost" ride anymore because it may be opened. Duuu...I get it.
Turbo, Universal is always doing something with their cranes. Maybe you saw someone being rescued from the brakes of P-Fliers.
If I understand correctly (not necessarily a given), this is the SAME one that's been sitting near PF since about the time of the park's opening. If so, it's there "just in case" something happened on P-Fliers and they had to get people down.
Incidentally, I think PART of the problem with the Driving Machines ride was that it was going to be *near impossible* to get people down in the case of an E-stop....Seuss Landing is hard to get into, out of, or even around....unless you're on foot, that is...;)
