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?!!
