    It's a big deal because we don't get to see the loop partially intact like that very often.

    I think the fact that this thread has had so much attention tells me that people actully like this ride!

    YES!

    Haters be darned. This is a SUPERB roller coaster. Not the fastest but surely one of the sweetest ever built. I love it from start to finish, music, no music, day or night.

    Screamin isn't unique like this... when they were building Tatsu at Magic Mountain, the Revolution was equally taken apart... it just wan't the loop, that's all. And as already previously mentioned, there are lots of "portable" coasters touring all the fair/carnival circuits that are taken apart every few weeks and have spotless operating records.
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    The Current TIMES Guide (12/11 thru 14) has the California Screamin' FASTPASS open DAILY....

    Seems like a last minute decision......

    Re: California Screamin's Loop is Missing!!

    I went to the park today and was shocked when I went over to ride Screamin and there was no loop. As soon as I got home I looked on here to see if anyone knew what was going on. I did get a couple of good pictures however. So here is one of them.

    Maybe they found some bad stress on the structure so they had to do work to prevent it from falling apart.

    Sooo...not routine maintenance then, eh? Someone probably found something in a nightly inspection on Sunday night and they decided it had to be torn apart to get it fixed?

    At least if it was a problem with the ride, they found it before something happened.

    EDIT: I also wouldn't expect the ride opened anytime soon. Won't they have to have DOSH come and re-inspect the ride now that they are replacing a pretty big portion of the ride???

    Also, if this wasn't an expected thing, you can't just go down to Loop R' Us and get a new one.

    Yes, because apparently, it was a better "attraction" as a parking lot. Even though there was nothing to do except leave your car there and take the tram. Exciting. DCA, with it's rides, shows, and everything else pales in comparison with the excitement that is...THE DISNEYLAND PARKING LOT.

    Re: California Screamin's Loop is Missing!!

    Hmm...I wonder what is going on! I may be wrong on this, but if memory serves me from high school, the most G forces exerted on a person is at the entrance and exit to the loop, about where the lower platforms are on the picture posted by Tigger37. I am VERY curious as to what is going on!

    Also, if you look at pictures taken by others, the straps are not as tight as in the picture taken by Tigger37. This is some pretty interesting stuff going on here. It really makes me wish I was within driving distances to DL.
