Pirates of the Caribbean 2013 refurbishment
« on: December 21, 2012, 11:37:30 AM »
Does anyone know why Pirates of the Caribbean has been listed (official website) as closed from the start of January till the end of February, I know they usual close it for a few weeks in January every year but this seems like a really long refirb

This is extremely upsetting as this is our favourite ride and we have our next trip booked for the last week in february

My best guess is that it is probably getting the long-rumoured update planned for the 20th anniversary.

I'm currently planning to go in february as well. Quite sad that PotC won't be opened as I'm visiting with a friend who hasn't been for over 10 years!

As I'm going to DLRP in February as well, I am disappointed that POTC will be closed. But I really hope that Captain Jack will finally settle in Paris!

Don't worry, it's just a technical refurbishment. No Jack Sparrow ahoy ;-)

It makes me wonder what on earth they're doing to it behind the scenes if it takes that long. I rode it just a few days ago and I've never seen it all working so well - every single thing working as far as I could tell. I can only think that a major overhaul of the tech side is required.

Are you sure it usually closed in January? We've been in January 9 times now, and it has been closed just the once...

There are loads of closures during Feb  when we are there. Luckily IASW reopens the week before as its one of the only rides we can go on as a family and enjoy as we have a 4 month old .

The POTC in paris won't be recieving the character update because its only closed for a month. The Disneyland version was closed for 3 months to install them.

I thought it was looking pretty good in general too, especially the duelling pirates. But a complete technical overhaul with no added Jack Sparrow sounds quite wonderful too, I hope they add some new effects or tricks to keep it fresh.

And to confirm, the new closures list states it will be closed until Friday 15th March inclusive.
