THIS IS PURELY SPECULATION,
but could the recent usage of the observatron be testing to see if they could use the current structure to put the astro jets back on top of the people mover launch . think about it, this thing hasn't been used in at least, two years, why bring it back now, why not on the 17th, why now. ??????. plus, the observatron is just dressing over the old astro jets platform, they could easily strip it off and put the jets back on.
