Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios appears to be suffering from another round of technical issues resulting in frequent closures

Guests have been reporting sporadic operation over the last week, and the ride has been down for a significant amount of time according to My Disney Experience. The ride is currently closed as of time of writing.

Oddly, the ride went through a similar issue during the same week in 2021 where the attraction suffered a week-long total closure.

The ride was last refurbished in late 2016, and has since suffered some unplanned closures due to technical difficulties with the launch system. Although we don't know for sure, it is likely this current closure is related.

If you want to be offensive, call them 'spreadsheet heads'. (I just made that up)

Big Thunder Mountain went off the rails and killed a man... like my Nana...

Well it lasted for almost 2 days!

'til the constant ups and downs are lower management forcing/resetting the machine to work at all costs with no maintenance given.

Hey, that's offensive. We use the words "sharp-pencil people" to describe the loathesome bean counters these days.

And the great irony is that the rides themselves ARE IP stuff! The bean counter MBAs only know the "synergy" term now through directed projects and just see the parks as downstream from the movie campaigns rather than individual entities.

Because they dont do jack diddly with non IP's really a shame.

You guys keep talking about Space Mountain and now it’s closed πŸ™ƒ

At least we know they can fix leaks in the Jungle Cruise boats with that stuff.

And a strobe light if all else fails

There's a couple of videos on Youtube that show space mountain with the lights on - If I recall I don't think the tracks cross each other except for maybe tight turns where you'll only have the one car in that track area at that time.
