A Crush for One

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Crushs-Coaster-02Crush’s Coaster is one of the most popular attractions of the Walt Disney Studios in Disneyland Paris. Lines are always very long. During high season lines can become well over 90 minutes and even hit the dreaded 2 hour waiting time. Up to today there have been no signs for a FastPass system or a line for the single rider. While a FastPass system would not work on this type of coaster, as it would push the regular waiting line well behind the 2 hour queue line, there is some good news for the single riders. In the near future, when the next rehab is planned, the attraction will not only get a new and better regular queue line, but it will also get a special single riders line. With the new queue line no car will be leaving the station anymore unless it is full. From then onwards a party of three will automatically get a fourth rider in their vehicle. Disney is anticipating some extra hourly capacity as vehicles will, from then onwards, always be full.

There is no date know when the rehab will start.

Stop HERE to wait for your turtle

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

 Not every theme and amusement park has the equivalent of Imagineers on-site 365 days a year – instead many “competitors” of the Disney resorts rely on outside support and creatives. In many cases this may help reduce initial costs, however, any later adjustments must either be executed by the operational staff of the park or require another hiring of outside forces. On the other hand the Imagineers at the Disney resorts are available all the time and certainly also monitor the operations of the parks (to some degree), receive feedback of cast members and guests and thereby can incorporate small improvements on the fly to improve the experience for everyone involved.

One example of this can be found in the load station of Crush’s Coaster in the Walt Disney Studios. Late last year an additional barrier was installed at the top end of the queue. Originally it was wide open, allowing a whole group of guests to move ahead. This made it difficult for a cast member to block the queue. In addition, guests tended to walk straight ahead to the next turtle that was approaching them head on, when in fact they had to turn sharp right and walk directly to the track, respectively (if prior guests were slow to exit their turtle) even double back on the queue direction. Now with the new barrier there is only an opening for one guest which a cast member can easily block (as is actually the case in the photo above). In addition the opening faces directly toward the track so that guests can approach their turtle by walking straight through it, easing the whole process.

Shareholders’ Club Night Event

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

Friday evening the Shareholders’ Club members were invited to enjoy the all new Toy Story Playland at Walt Disney Studios Park after park closure. Considering the late nightfall and early park closing of the Walt Disney Studios the event was the first opportunity to enjoy the new addition to the park with its lighting design in full display.

During a visit to Toy Story Playland earlier in the day numerous additional, temporary lights were found to be standing in the new area, however, those turned out to be not necessary at night and were not used. Most propably they had been placed in TSPL already in anticipation for the major press event scheduled for Saturday night. But then for Friday’s Shareholders’ Club event the regular lighting needed no extra add-ons. This also had the big advantage that guests could enjoy the light design as it was intended by Imagineering… (more…)
