Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance resumes operation following lightning strike closure yesterday

Aug 12, 2020 in "Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance"

Technical problems at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance appear to have been overcome today, as the ride resumes operation at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Virtual queue reservations opened as normal today at 10am, and began immediate boarding with groups 1 - 3.

The ride was closed all day yesterday, despite boarding groups being assigned. Monday night saw severe storms in the area and a resulting lightning strike directly on the ride's show building. Damage appears to have been light, but may have impacted some of the building's power systems.

Yikes..., today was an atrocious day for operations. A breakdown of the breakdowns today (ha, puns!): 9:37am - 10:14 am (37 mins) 11:44am - 1:59pm (2 hrs 15 mins) 2:38pm - 2:56pm (18 mins) 4:00pm - 5:18pm (1 hr 18 mins) It seems like they called it a day at the last breakdown at 5:30pm and didn't try to reopen the ride. One of the worse days (if not the worst) of reliability since ROTR's birthday on Dec. 4th...

Yes, and I recommend starting at the "My Queues" screen.
