Runaway Reptar Rollercoaster

3 posts in this topic

Hey Does any one know why the Runaway Reptar Rollercoaster is shut for 12days?? Thats a while for a coaster to be shut down when its only like couple years old. Are there problems with it? Anyone know? Thanks

This is presumably the first time the ride has actually gone down for maintenance since it was built, which means it's been running solidly for some 400 days without significant work. Routine maintenance doesn't allow for more drastic maintenance such as disassembling of whole cars to clean and replace less accessible parts, which is vital to the safety and longevity of the ride. The ride also doesn't have a separate maintenance area like every other ride at Dreamworld, where work can be done without really worrying about mess or clutter. This would limit what they can and can't do before park hours, and mean there are more things to do when the ride goes down for annual maintenance.
