    Exclamation Cyberspace Mountain to close?!!

    News just in from www.dlrp.fr It seems the Cyberspace Mountain simulators that form the post-show to the Disney Channel Tour have been closed for several days now, following a string of technical difficulties. The simulators kept breaking down, and park management received a string of complaints from guests and Cast Members alike that it was taking the maintenance teams too long to arrive and free the trapped riders. The closure is currently provisional, but it seems an announcement could soon be made to the effect that the simulators will be taken offline permanently.

    Frankly, although this is bad news, it doesn't come as a surprise. Cyberspace Mountain always had a dreadfully low capacity, you couldn't ride it without doing the whole Disney Channel Tour first, and it had the strictest height restriction in the whole park (and this in a section aimed squarely at kids).

    Without the simulators, the tour will effectively be cut in half. Don't forget that Stitch Encounter isn't due to open for another year, at which point most of the pre-show (the tour of the editing suite, the sections with Julie, the presenter) are also likely to go. Will anything be left this time next year? Could they put a second Stitch Encounter screen into the Cyberspace Mountain section, thereby doubling the attraction's capacity? How many times are they going to change the tour before they get it right?!!

    Actually I never tried Cyber Space Mountain... Was it good? Watching the motion of this machine make me sick.
    Anything related to the arrival of Stitch in the same building ???

    the reason i heard was they are not maintaining the systems properly every night which Disney Quest did....

    thus they are slowly breaking down...causing the problems...

    removing this would indeed make the people come less and less...

    Well, rather have double capacity (2 rooms) on the Stitch Encounter then Cyberspace Mountain. Since Stitch is such a beloved character I think the attraction will become quite popular....

    And don't forget, two theaters will help with the language barrier...this makes sense as I have heard it before.

    Sorry to spring two surprises on you in one day, but it seems that Cyberspace Mountain may be back in operation already. The whole situation's a bit confused at the moment, but I'll try and keep the updates coming.
