  1. Well, maybe the only people who complain about it are people who like really, really enjoyed it. For me, as a kid riding it, I didn't know for a while. I literally thought there were 3 different rooms. When I found out, it was the coolest thing EVER. First of all, I can't believe you said that! I don't think that ride is going anywhere for decades at least, especially if they continue to make movies for the franchise. Why get rid of one of the most popular rides at the park? It'd cost millions to tear the thing out to replace it with another E-ticket that would cost upwards of $100-200 million. Yes, they spend lots of money to keep the ride going, so if they're doing that, they might as well invest in it the same way they invested in Big Thunder Mountain, Matterhorn, and even Space Mountain (although that was probably the cheapest?). I think if everything was "re-done" (same effects but the engineering/electronics behind it are streamlined/improved) there would be a lot less problems and less maintenance to do.
  2. With all the money that's gone into this ride I wish they'd retrofit the ride system into something new for a certain ride in Adventureland. By that I don't mean new ride vehicles or effects for that matter, basically I mean re-programming or doing whatever electronic work needs to be done to make all of the effects work consistently. Oh, and retrofitting that door effect...
  3. Not sure how Japan and Florida are, but that looks super awesome!
  4. So you're telling me it won't duel at WCB at all? It WILL duel if a train is dispatched in time, and it almost ALWAYS is a park guest who realizes after seats have locked that they need to put something in the bins (I've seen multiple people with purses have to get unlocked to go put it in the bin). When I went last Wednesday, I dueled once the 2nd time I rode it. Leaving the park later, I saw FOUR races in a row. And you know what? I'd bet the ride ops were maintaining the same pace, which IS good enough to allow the trains to race, but it won't race when guests hold up the dispatch. So I don't think the beef should be with the ride ops, rather management who decided not to post signage or a video or something to tell guests to put their stuff away (the time I raced the ride ops announced "If you want to race, please quickly put your belongings in the bins and buckle your seatbelt").
  5. Sitting on a comfy couch in the epicenter of a 7.0 earthquake doesn't make the earthquake any more bearable.
  6. Hate to start a flame war but the ones at Dodger Stadium every Friday night and 4th of July are better (I've seen both Dodgers and Angels)
  7. That's true, but I think if that's the case it should be more praised as "being good enough to be mentioned in the same sentence as Disney" instead of "sorry, it pales in comparison" as if it was touted as being on level with Disney.
  8. Disneyland spends $75,000+ on their normal show (not their bigger 60th) so it's unreasonable to put SFMM's in the same sentence. Anyways, it's a pretty cool show! Now I'm looking forward to Fright Fest.
  9. I think that's doing pretty well. All of their coasters were running 2 trains (3 in TC's case) except for one coaster being down and one running one train.
  10. Honestly I don't know why they'd vote to not tax them. Do they think Disney's going to pack up and leave? The mayor who's against the tax break knows Disney's going to expand anyway... But as I heard from someone, don't bite the hand that feeds you... Anaheim IS Disney.
  11. I guess Captain EO is going in the 4D Theater starting July 19!
  12. I would compare it to having jackhammers attached to either side of your head while rolling a rocky cliff in a shopping cart with square wheels. Nah, that's Revolution.
  13. New TV Spot for their Resident Evil thing. Japan is awesome. lol Sorry I'm too dumb to figure out the Youtube tag... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_I8tLKal0gI
  14. The roughness can wildly vary based on your seat and weight distribution. Inside seats tend to be smoother. Row 1 inside seat is my personal favorite. Goliath is a must-ride when open.
  15. Got stuck on Indiana Jones last night right under the boulder on the last car of the night... FML. I guess it was cool hearing the "BOOM" at it's loudest point... But not really. They might as well just re-engineer the whole dang ride.
  16. It might be just me, but I get motion sickness on floorless coasters. 3 times in a row is enough for me. And Riddler's has a totally awesome layout. I think floorless would take away from the coaster instead of improving it, which I believe is the reason why people might want to switch it.
