Rip Ride Rockit Closed

The Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit roller coaster at Universal Studios Florida 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.

Attraction Tickets Review – When I was told about this ride I imagined those rubbish rocking simulators at poor theme parks, this however is nothing like that. Its a thrill from start to finish, when an explosion takes place you feel the heat, when you “fall” I defy you not to put your hands out to break your fall and when you swing with Spider-man you’re truly a superhero. I loved this ride.

Incredible Hulk Roller Coaster At Universal Studios

The Hulk ride at Island’s of Adventure universal studios transports you from sunny Orlando to the labroatory of Dr Bruce Banner. It is a front facing leg dangling ride of pure pace and power. You accelerate from zero to 40 mph in two seconds flat, with the force equal to that of a jet taking off an aircraft carrier. The world turns upside down as you experience a weightless “zero g” roll.

Height to ride – 56″

Top Speed – 67mph

Height reached – 150ft

Attraction Tickets Review – This was my favourite ride at Island’s of Adventure, the 0 to 40 mph start in the darkly lit tunnel was exhilarating and bursting out in to the bright sunshine gave your senses a bit of a shake before the coaster shakes your body. Highly recommended for the adrenaline junky. Rode it 5 times and it wasn’t enough.
