Heading to UOR this weekend...any last minute tips on getting on this ride? Is it still breaking down on a regular basis?
While today was not so good most days have been a lot better regarding break downs. I would make it the first thing you do at the park. I haven’t meet a single person who hasn’t loved the attraction after riding no matter how long the wait.Heading to UOR this weekend...any last minute tips on getting on this ride?

Large structures contract and expand under unusual weather plus some coasters just don't run under a certain temp. For example opening summer of Steel Vengeance I was about to get on the coaster and the transfer track got stuck because the wood expanded as it was the first hot day of the year. They had to bring out maintenance to grind down the track so it would slide. Cold temps could effect sensors, track switches, etc. Of course once they've hit these issues they'll fix them and move on and it won't happen again.its supppsed to be in the mid 60s while I’m there. Will I have problems too? Didn’t know cold weather effected the coaster, only rain.
Have you not ridden it yet?Well I really hope i don’t have any issues , I’ll be so bummed if I can’t ride it. I’m at the park two days, so hopefully I’ll get lucky one or the other.
Some coasters are airtime machines this is a smile machine.Have you not ridden it yet?
My gosh, it's such a great ride. I was smiling ear to ear the whole time. I tried to describe it to someone that was going to USO at my work, and I just said it's FUN.
You will love it! I would echo what everyone else has said, go at rope drop, the lunch hour, and/or when it's about to close. Many times, the workers outside of the ride will tell you to come back before X time to make sure that you get on
Good luck! I hope you get a night ride in too!
Both fill a different hole, if anything I bet we see Hulk times reduce.Something I've been thinking about: What will Hagrid wait times look like when the Jurassic Coaster opens in 2021(?), I wasn't even a lurker here when Gringotts opened so I have no reference point for what happened FJ > Gringotts or Gringotts > Hagrid's wait times.
what time did you get in line, and how long was the wait?Rode yesterday evening front row motorbike in the twilight of the evening with the freezing cold. Very immersive and honestly the best ride I have had on the attraction.
Fluffy seems to be working again(had some downtime last week)except for ol'lefty.
I've also noticed that the audio in the hut seems to be cutting off earlier than it used to.
