The members of the technical team therefore are constantly busy (also during the holidays) to repair the damaged actions. Having more than 200 pushbuttons, this is not always easy and so some of them have to be repaired during business hours. Here we see Kenny as he tries to revive the sky rides in the Austrian section.
