Probably the same reason why it keeps tripping itself frequently. A somewhat complex ride which also has the added complexity of being a water ride to deal with.

It's a pity they couldn't schedule that downtime for the middle of winter rather than in summer., but really it's going to be like that at least twice a year now.

Agree with the absolute stupidity in closing one of the two thrill rides in the park, in summer. 

Add it to the list of poor decision making...

@YLFATEEKS Hey that was pretty mellow by my standards of late :P

 

Just making the point that it's going to be hard to cool down at Sea World with a water ride closed in summer and no bubbles in the beer.

If anyone's wondering I heard AW's annual maintenance on all rides starts 26 April and goes to whenever the hell they want it too (September)

Argh! we have come up from Sydney every February for the last 3 years now, and both those rides are always closed in the times we come up my son will be devastated.

Maintenance schedules are often pretty similar to previous years, perhaps in future try a different time of year if you can?

I've heard Storm Coaster drenches you year round (no winter mode), is this true?

I would think that they could probably lower the water level in the splashdown - meaning less splash, but since it's the water that is used as a brake run, i'm not so sure they'd want to - meaning same experience all the time.

They could be actually beginning to remove Viking's Revenge during the Storm Coaster maintenance period? They've already begun removing the queue lines & signage (which is pretty easy to do) but maybe they are indeed going to quickly remove the flume channel around the Storm Coaster then? Like I've said before, it looks complex to remove & may be deemed too risky to do while the Storm Coaster is operating. With limited rides & limited times to close Storm Coaster for scheduled maintenance, maybe SW has decided to do a quick but careful removal in case of future delays (i.e. weather/damage to Storm Coaster) particularly as they've set themselves a deadline of 2019?

There's no evidence that says they will remove that flume channel around Storm Coaster during Storm Coaster's maintenance period but they should take the most of the opportunities presented.

You do make a very good point @Jamberoo Fan, and that wasn't actually something I'd thought out. But I'd definitely say, that they would have to remove it will the storm was closed, otherwise there is a level of risk. They could also close that whole pathway off while it's under maintence so they can safety remove the whole channel and maybe even the lift hill, drop and remainder of queue area
