How come it didn't even make it to 2 flips at 1:58?

And how long should it take for new parts to "Wear In"?

I think its the breaks that lock the gondola in place. I think it’s not locking the gondola right in the first place and causes issues later on in the backflip and doesnt release the gondola early enough to do the second backflip, does it to late and doesn’t have the momentum to achieve the second backflip... if that all makes sense. Thats what I gather anyway from watching the videos.

Went up to Dreamworld today, and am happy to report that I heard none of these sounds on the ride. It was simply the fact the parts are still new and needed to be worn in.

Anyone confirm?

I had only one ride on the Wipeout today and didn’t notice any of those strange noises while riding. 

I didn’t watch a cycle though. It would be interesting to know whether our perspective to the ride plays a part in what we can hear or if they were just from being ‘worn in’.

It’s not really worthy of creating a new topic but I’m at the park today and maintenance had to be called out to the Wipeout. I was on the ride at the time and just as it was starting the gondola must’ve got out of alignment (?) and we just rocked for a couple of minutes. Would’ve taken a maximum of 10 minutes for maintenance to arrive and realign the ride so that we could get off. They just finished testing and been given the green light.
