Battlestar Galactica Closed Till 2011?

More than two month after the dueling Battlestar Galactica roller coasters at Universal Studios Singapore closed unexpectedly, the ride still sits shuttered at the new theme park.

A problem with the coaster's trains, which hasn't publicly been described in detail, is the reason for the closure. The latest estimates now put the ride at a 2011 reopening, quite a significant delay. The park officially still says they're not sure when the ride will reopen, however.

Whatever the "technical glitch" was that took place, it sure must have been serious!

Edit: I'm not seeing that the reports of a 2011 reopening are exaggerated - but still, Vekoma must really be taking a bath over this ride!
