Major theme park operators, such as Disney (DIS) and Comcast’s (CMCSA) Universal Studios maintain their rides and attractions regularly and carefully to ensure they work properly and safely for their guests.
Whenever a visitor favorite attraction is temporarily closed for maintenance, repairs, or upgrades, many guests are disappointed when they can’t ride that attraction.
For example, Disneyland closed its Haunted Mansion ride on August 15 until September 1, while the theme park redesigned the attraction for its return as a Haunted Mansion Holiday on September 2. Disneyland’s popular attraction is being redecorated in its annual Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas theme, which will continue for a limited time until January 8. Until September 2, Disneyland guests may be a little disappointed that the attraction is temporarily closed.
