Or even just from the Metro station.

This would be great if parks like IMG and Motiongate could have a shuttle from the closest metro station! Getting a cab from IMG was not easy or frequent at the time, and had a long queue outside in 111 degree temperatures. Luckily I talked to some folks in line heading back to Dubai Mall and we split a cab.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Dave, can those of us who likely won't make it out to this park any time soon get a spoiler-filled review of the Madagascar Mad Pursuit coaster?

Sure.

SPOILER WARNING!

You enter Madagascar Mad Pursuit through a large circus tent. The que is very well themed and includes a walk through a railway car with assorted animals.

You board the 8 seater car and move slowly to a nice dark ride scene. There is a scene with the stars of the film it features a projection and several animatronics. A tunnel in front of you lights up with some great effects and you are launched form standstill into the main ride building. Straight after the launch is a hill with huge air time. This is followed by a few more airtime hills all the hills have animatronic figures that light up as you go past. They create a really good feeling that you might collide with them. There is a cool section with a giraffe in a canon that is shot out. There is a small section that goes out into the Madagascar area. It's quite a long ride with loads of airtime and a great launch. At the end there is another animatronic scene with a lion tamer. Overall it's easily the best ride in the park. I rode it before the effects were working and it was great. The addition of the animatronic and lighting scenes really improve it.

They don't allow any loose items on this ride. There are fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo outside that are free for the first hour. They do allow glasses with the correct securing straps.

What's the situation with loose items - do they have fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo? Are they free?
Would a small shoulder bag be allowed?
