SDSC Upgrade

3 posts in this topic

Just heard that SDSC will be beginning the tender process next year for a full revamp of the lighting inside the 'coaster' section of the ride. Amongst other things, the plan is to remove the existing lasers and control system and to investigate replacing them with newer Solid State lasers which, in a nutshell, consume less power and allow for full colour effects. There's also talk of integrating moving lights into the installation. Sounds good to me, as many will know the lasers don't always work in the ride, the smoke machines were tacked on to the design with them just sitting on the floor in the middle of the room, etc. Would be great to see a more integrated, reliable and advanced lighting system in there. Will let you know more as I hear it!

yeah, every magic saturday a different scooby coaster ride, either a laser not working here or there, or a smoke machine not working, kind of takes the ring-a-ding-ding out of the ride, although the tourist on their once-in-a-lifetime visit probably won't notice as much. Full colour effects would be awesome for the ride. Maybe a redesign of the ride to incorporate some dips in the crazy mouse zig zags once you launch off the turnstile? Maybe a big ask, but yeah sure when there's a few components not working it's just not SDSC the way it was meant to be... even though the kids love it,....

Thanks for the news nev! It will be exciting to see what they do with the show building and how it will affect the overall ride experience. Be sure to keep us updated. Does anyone know when Scooby-Doo had its last maintenance overhaul? Also, I don't think we will see any changes to the track ;)
