At Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, attraction closures are all too commonplace. Due to the age and use of these theme park attractions, closures are a necessary part of keeping these attractions looking and working their best.

Many rides undergo larger seasonal closures to help minimize overall damage. One ride, in particular, was closed for several months as renovations were completed on the ride. However, when this ride reopened, things clearly did not go as smoothly as Disney had hoped.

A Rocky Re-Opening

Kali River Rapids in Disney Animal Kingdom Park is an iconic attraction, but not one that is known for being the most durable. The water-based ride was closed for the majority of winter and just recently celebrated a triumphant return just two weeks ago. However, as we previously reported, the ride instantly suffered some major issues after reopening. The attraction has continued to shut down on nearly a daily basis, raising confusion and frustration from fans.

Now, just days after reopening to eager guests ready to experience the thrills of the Kali River Rapids, a report has surfaced alleging that the popular water ride is set to undergo another round of refurbishment. This unexpected alleged closure would be a surprise to many Disney Park visitors who were looking forward to embarking on this exciting river adventure.
