That's one way to look at it! Nice way to explain it from their angle...

...though it's not strictly a Universal thing...it's a Zamperla thing. Thunderbolt has the same 9-seater cars, and all of their Hawk flat rides use 3-across seating. Not complaining...just find it odd.

I like the look of the tower, except for the peculiar choice of keeping some of the supports white. It seems like an odd design choice that makes a slightly negative impact of the great tower they created. Overall, good choice for the park.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I don't quite understand the themeing (what are they trying to steal from the goose that will save the orphanage?. .is it a golden egg?).

but I LOVE this.

it's like the best parts of Peter Pan's Flight, combined with elements of a coaster.

I'd ride this sucker over and over, and I'll bet it's amazing at night with the lights hitting the disco ball in the dance scene!

Sounds like puss in boots is a winner for the park if even the fast pass line is hitting 45 minutes: http://dejiki.com/2015/05/uss-update-2015may/

I never had to wait for any of the rides on my visit with fastpass but maybe that's because they didn't have the unlimited fast pass option back then so I guess all the guests only getting one ride each must have helped spread it out.

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

It's roughly the same story as the movie.

From the ride's press release...

At the Far Far Away themed zone, the Giant’s Castle sits ruined, entwined within a giant beanstalk. The
quest, nine lives in the making, begins here as Puss In Boots and Kitty Softpaws go in search of the
precious golden eggs in a bid to save San Ricardo’s Orphanage, which has fallen on hard times. Guests
will join in the legendary exploits of Puss In Boots as they take off on an anti-gravity swashbuckling flight

Onboard one of Humpty Alexander Dumpty’s latest flying machines, guests set off from the Giant’s
kitchen in search of the legendary golden eggs. The mission runs into trouble when they are spotted by
a Tattletale gosling who alerts the Great Terror of their presence in the castle. Once exposed, riders are
rocketed through plenty of twists and turns as they are pursued by the Great Terror, who turns out to
be one big Mama Goose!

The real question is what didn't make it close.
