Good tip, although I’m not sure if the CMs working the attraction entrances will necessarily know.
Yeah they might know but not all the time. They might be told to say everything is in working order too. Cast isn't always very honest with guests in that way.
I was trying to be diplomatic.
Oh that's a bummer!! I didn't know that was an issue. My 5 year old rode FOP but didn't enjoy it (a little too much for her) but she loooooved NRJ, and the Shaman was absolutely her favorite part. We rode at closing time 4x's in a row and she had mastered the hand movements by the end, haha.
And just because it's working when you get in line doesn't mean it will be working by the time you float by it.
Or vice versa. Which is the #1 reason why the CM will not typically answer about it's status if you ask at the start.
Does it break down frequently?
Kinda. Based on your definition of frequent. It's a pretty intricate form of animatronic. The reason they use a screen instead of just taking the ride down is how often it goes down.
Either that or the Shaman is union, and in his contract he only has to work 10 minutes out of every hour. Heck, the Yeti has been on strike for years...
Probably best to make sure it is a guest that would know the difference, too. If you get someone that has not ridden it before, they might not know what it should look like.
