As there are quite a few park employees who post regularly on these forums, I wouldn't be surprised if someone here does know, but unless the park chooses to release that information, we likely won't find out the exact reason.

Paramount Parks put up a large sign saying something like:

"I am waiting for a gear from Switzerland. When it gets here, I will soon be entertaining you again."

Paramount Parks doesn't exist anymore...

Well let's see... It's HUSS Park Attractions... And not just HUSS, but a "Giant" rendition of one of their rides... Who knows!

Real rewards await those who choose wisely.

Its almost like you are implying that other giant HUSS rides at our lovely park have been subject to prolonged downtime in the past! lol

Hopefully this is just a temporary set back.

Next KI Visit: TBD

I love Huss, thay make some of the best flats... But their parts just wear and tear so easy... I wonder how expensive it is to run a Intamin or a Huss attraction?

I was at the park today for about an hour and a half and I did not see Delirium go once, it made me wonder what was going on with it.

Kings Island.....where memories are made...

 

DROP TOWER!

 

May a path always rise to meet you, and a coaster be on your horizon.

Well as you all know the reason it is not running is because of a part they can not get anymore. The design for Delirium came from an old do-it-your-self magazine. And with a modern touch to the original design they came up with Delirium. They didn't know hamsters died so fast.

I'm sure someone will somehow blame Intamin...

I am sure in the off season people will park in the parking lot at KI and take pics of the construction.  Will that be trespassing too?

Yes!

Don't worry, this is just part of the typical 2 weeks - 1 month of downtime that Huss rides like Delirium have every year. :)

Not saying that this is whats wrong right now but back in the paramount days of Delirium my sister worked there and they had a problem with the breaks going out and it took about 2 weeks to get the new ones.They said the breaks go out if the ride is ran incorrectly. Just what i heard. With all the mechaniacs who have been climbing around up top thats what i beleive it is.

I was at the park Wednesday and around 4pm an employee was power-washing the queue. This may be one of the reasons that it has been down.

Somehow I don't think a ride would be totally shut down merely for the purpose of power washing the queue area, unless you're looking at a public health danger/emergency. As stated above many times, Delirium has been down before, usually a seasonal occurrence, due to mechanical issues. Something broke, and they're waiting for a new part to come in or to machine a new part.
Diamondback lifetime total: 81

Delirium lifetime total: 3 (what's wrong with me?)

I rode it about 2 weeks ago and the braking seemed weird to me then. It was quite jerky coming to a stop which I had never noticed before, so you might be on right track with your brake idea.

:lol: :lol: That was good. :lol: :lol: I wonder if they save up enough box tops, they'll be able to get a decoder ring for the repair instructions.

Huss rides, making many fine flat rides.

http://www.hussrides.com/

They have been doing this for a long time, older Huss rides still say West Germany on them.

"So… You want to see the theater, do ya? Well, go ahead."

I don’t think it quite happens that way. But they have had to wait on a part to be shipped from overseas before, and I’m sure that’s what the hang up is this time. I’m sure the park is anxious to get the ride back open but wants to make sure that the ride is performing at 100% so as to not cause more problems down the road.

I was at the park Wednesday and around 4pm an employee was power-washing the queue. This may be one of the reasons that it has been down.

The ride would not be shut down just for power washing the line. They are probably just taking advantage of the downtime since they really don't have the opportunity to power wash again until the park goes back to operating on weekends.

Park Services will take care of rides every now and then. Last night they power washed Diamondback and Rivertown.

It's actually not Park Services but a maintenance crew (the name of the actual department escapes me, maybe Landscaping) that does the power washing in the mornings and at night.

I was there a few weeks ago and noticed a stagger while taking a ride. Seems to me if the brakes are a yearly event that CF would order extra parts and have them on site instead of
ordering and having two weeks of inactivity for a popular ride. The day I rode it I was actually glad to get off because it sounded and acted very different than usual.

You sure, because they have asked me before to help with power washing.

I enjoy the ride, and was sorry to see it closed last night. I missed the ride two weeks ago because of a protein spill.
