Troika Troika Troika... Tony's a funny guy.

HUSS tried and I believe never did fix KI's in its ability to park itself. I believe they do it manually to this day. They were also supposed to modify TR:TR's program and Im not sure why they didn't.
Every ride has it's share of replacement parts available. Wheel are one of the main ones. But when it comes to one of the two giant motors that lift the giant pendulum up into the air, those aren't on-hand.
Jeff is right. Who doubted that it wouldn't open? TTD did the same thing in 2005 and reopened just fine in 2006.

Wrong again Chuck. From day one KI's Frisbee has always homed itself. It has never been done manually by ride ops.
The one I'd be worried about most is the Breakdance as SFA's has been nothing but trouble.
pyrocoasterkid, you're lucky as Delirium went down for a day and least a half last June (it may have opened later in the afternoon on that Saturday, but they couldn't give us a solid time and we had a 7-1/2 hour drive ahead of us). Luckily, we had ridden MaxAir two days prior.
I really wanted to ride Delirium again, as in my mind from BeastBuzz 06', that was the superior of the two rides. There's always 09' for another Giant Frisbee showdown:)

You ran the ride, I accept your infinant wisdom :)
My understanding is that the issue on both rides is in the gearing. I don't know enough about how it works to really understand anything more than that. I don't remember if we still have the photos on PointBuzz, but I seem to recall there are three motors on each side of the hub that drive some kind of big gear.
