Due to the rain, and possibly also the ride's delay, there wasn't a presentation at the media event like usual.

Matt, did you hear anything about another event on Tuesday?

It's not really an event, just some other news channel(s) that didn't come last week are going Tuesday now.

Don't worry, its not broken..  It's because the asphalt was getting to sticky, so there fixing that.. And if you saw a crane there, which I did, they are just checking it out while they fix the asphalt. I know this because I asked I would say at least 13 park employees.. Some security, just the main staff, and the flash pass people told me. Although I had one than more source inform me about the situation, there just employees and not "why Wonder Woman : Lasso of Truth at SFGADV has its walls and cranes around it" experts. That is what they told me.. And also considering the fact that more than 10 employees told me the same thing,

I *still* have sticky asphalt on the bottom of my sneakers from our trip on Saturday. It was really really bad. I'm glad they are fixing it.

Anyone know if it has reopened today? Was hoping to get a ride in later this evening...

LOL sure, *just* that there's sticky asphalt. Don't mind the huge crane working on the ride, nothing to see, just a coincidence.

 

What an embarrassment; they can't even get a flat ride to function safely or pave a midway properly. Who knows what corners are being cut on safety elsewhere in the park these days, all to save a buck or two.

Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth has been experiencing a ton of technical difficulties, to the point where the ride breaks down at least once a day. Before opening they had to replace the motor because it broke, and now Thursday, June 27th, Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth almost collapsed. The motor failed mid course and it caused every support to start violently shaking. They immediately stopped the ride, and put the blue fence for construction back up as soon as they could. They are now replacing the motor once again, making this the 2nd time the motor failed. If this continues, what do you think the future of Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth is? And what will they do to fix it?

It’s just startup issues.  Whether it’s a blown motor or broken lift chain, a lot of rides have a break in period.  Nothing major.

Have any of the clones at other parks had similar issues upon opening?

CraZanity at Magic Mountain had several issues when it first opened and was down for a couple of weeks.  The Joker: Carnival of Chaos at Fiesta Texas was waiting on a new gearbox (according to the Park President) as soon as it was assembled, but I think that is because they sent it here to fix the first issue with Wonder Woman. Complex machines take time to break in and adjust.

 

Not the same ride, but Riddler Revenge at Over Texas received a new motor in February and that required the pendulum section to be removed so the entire motor could be removed from the top and swapped out.

I have no argument. And at this point I'm pretty convinced. Considering that 13 employees on Thursday told me that it was the asphalt issues. I was there today with a friend, and I asked about 3 employees this time, and their answers changed. Two said "major updates". And I was checking out wonder woman today and I happened to ask a security guard passing by, if they were having more motor issues. Figuring I could have more clues asking that question instead just asking why's its closed. It took him a while to finally say. "I dont know. I dont get paid enough to say" and walked away. And I'm just like what the. Like I understand they want good publicity, so I kinda understand.. But I would feel so much safer if they put on their big boy pants and addressed the issues. Because its leading to all this speculation and it's really annoying.

I was at the park July 3rd.  At the beginning of the day I was shocked when the walls were taken down, but a few hours later they were put back up.  Construction vehicles were back on site, and some kind of work was being done to the ride.

Kind of a funny story. The last new ride(which I only did once) was El Diablo. I'm too tall for Joker, same for Cyborg so I am really excited to try WW. Have been to the park a few times since opening but the only day it was open while I was there the line was outrageous so I opted out. Have been stalking this thread hoping to learn it's open again. Looks like it will be my new favorite ride. At least from the ground.

Finally rode Wonder Woman last night. Other than the extremely unorganized loading system where they literally announce to everyone that its a free-for-all and that everyone needs to find a seat in 45 seconds, it is an awesome ride and awesome addition that I will probably ride every time I visit. Seats facing Nitro's lift are the money seats, indeed.

Too scary for me. Meh. I'll stick to Cyborg.

Seems like this isn't the park's fault considering the ride's motor seems to always be the problem (if that is the problem this time around).

If I remember correctly, there are six motors up there.

For the record, the ride closed for maybe an hour from the photo. It was open in the morning, broke down, then re-opened shortly after that photo.

Still have not ridden on Wonder Woman yet. I sat in it back in the early summer, but they closed it after I sat down. Last Sunday I tried again, when it was supposed to be my turn they closed the ride down again. Every time I try to ride it, they close it down.
