^I'm the same. I have no problem with a ride meandering if it was designed properly to do so and isn't just a failed attempt at a thrilling element. I have no problem with Hulk's ending or Ice's ending which is way less exciting than Fire's. Meandering after some thrilling elements adds some nice variety and for those that this ride is catering towards, it makes sense to not have a non-stop thrill machine, such as Maverick or ROTM (although after diving into "hell" Mummy does kind of meander a bit). A perfect example of a large scale, family-oriented coaster that has a LOT of meandering is Expedition Everest. The ride is not intense by any means (the big drop is thrilling, but not really all that intense of an element) yet it is regarded very highly by enthusiasts and the general public. And I think with the inclusion of an on-board soundtrack, this ride should be a lot more exciting than some are thinking. People love options
. It's reason to ride again. To see if the ride is better or worse with a different song. I think this ride is quite an intelligent investment for Universal Studios.
