Universal's Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit Roller Coaster Reopens

Orlando, FL -- Fans of Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit will be happy to learn that the roller coaster has resumed operation at Universal Studios Florida theme park yesterday. The attraction has been closed since September 16.

Universal said they closed the popular attraction so that they could perform some maintenance, but the closure followed the release of a safety bulletin from the ride manufacturer, Maurer Söhne, regarding a possible safety problem related to the design of the coaster's vehicles.

However, the park stated that they'd resolved the issue with the coaster's vehicles in advance of the release of the safety bulletin.
