Jubilee Odyssey Rollback

Fantasy Island's signature attraction Jubilee Odyssey has experienced its first rollback since its opening season (2002). The train failed to complete the horseshoe turn a week prior to the Easter weekend; the parks busiest weekend of the year.

Attempts have already been made to rescue the stalled train; using a block and tackle engineers hauled the train to the highest point of the horseshoe turn. The train was then dropped into next inversion (sidewinder), we can however report that the train also failed to complete the sidewinder. The train remained at the base of the sidewinder throughout the Easter weekend.

The cause is yet unknown, Island Quest as however learned that the train was shipped to Vekoma in September 2005 for modifications. Could this be an attempt by Fantasy Island to create a smoother ride?
