Interesting SBNO report from SFMM

Saw this on another site (I'd rather not mention....let's just call it "s"scape :) ) and found it very interesting:

"This man is single-handedly (obviously, as he's on the phone) fixing all of the ride's problems."

I don't get it. *** Edited 7/25/2006 11:25:56 PM UTC by matt.***

It's really a shame so many rides are going this way because of what seems to be poor maintenance by Six Flags (see my Zonga thread). I got my credit on Flashback a long time ago, but it was a pretty interesting ride. I still want it to re-open, especially if they close the Mountain in the near future.

While I like Shapiro and admit many good changes have happened...this shows just how far SFMM has to go (It's Patron problems not included)

^ SFMM doesn't have THAT far to go Jeff...

It's a pretty short trip from where they're at to the scrap heap... ;)

Ironic though that moustimes would point out the SBNO list, considering Disneyland itself has a recent history of SBNO attractions - Peoplemover/Rocket Rods, and the Poseidon Adventure, that have lasted many, many years. And with Disney's vast resources, there never was a year where they couldn't afford to fix the rides. It took far too long for Nemo to get the greenlight, and who knows how many more years the Rods track will sit there?

It certainly looks like he hit SFMM on a extremely bad day with all the ride shutdowns though. I'm glad I've have yet to have that experience. I can't imagine being out there during a heatwave.

I've read elsewhere that SFMM's budget got cut yet again by the head office, so some of the performers have reduced schedules and there are no available funds to restore some of that list. Even with Orient Express looking like it was getting close - a little new paint, dirt off the tracks, it may or may not happen in 06. If SFMM isn't supported by company, then we can't expect much. *** Edited 7/27/2006 3:00:39 AM UTC by DBJ***

DBJ: DIsneyland, like SFMM was mismanaged for the better park of a decade which was when those closures occured. Thankfully that is getting fixed, as the park is in better shape now than it has been for probably as long as I've been alive. The new regime has done a sheer miracle in how they completely overhauled the whole park in under 2 years time.

But the good news...(we all know the subs are coming back)...the people mover will be coming back for 2008/2009 reportedly. We also know now that DCA is poised to be fixed (this week the multi-hundred million dollar remake of the park was approved). If they can just fix the rest of tomorrowland that got destroyed, we'll be set!

Posiedon Adventure? I've been going to Disneyland since 1965 and I don't remember an attraction with that name.

I think he meant the submarine voyage. *** Edited 7/27/2006 3:23:33 AM UTC by Peabody***

Hey Peabody, I'm with you as a Disney Optimist. I'm totally stoked about the makeover approval. Then again, when they spend 30 million remaking Superstar Limo, let's hope that 100 million doesn't mean a ride and a taco stand. ;)

People Mover? Heck yah! Bring her back Mr. Lasseter. Heck, they could even make a CGI movie based on the ride and have the release coincide with the gand re-opening. ;)
