The water flowed down the side of the building, past the edge of the glass pyramids, before draining out into the walkway.

Shortly after, Cast Members stood in front of the pavilion to tell guests it was closed due to technical difficulties.

Several minutes later, the water wasn’t visibly spouting anymore, suggesting that it may have been shut off for repairs. As of the writing of this article, it’s unclear how long it will take to fix the issue and reopen the pavilion.

  1. If the water damaged the Eric Idle portions of the ride, can they use the insurance money to restore the original versions of the ride?
