I find this statement rather interesting IMO. So the people were begging for SFDK to bring their Action Theater back, while most people didn't care about CGA's Action Theater, even though they're basically the same attraction.

given that Pacific Rim 2 is now officially dead, I'll be very, very happy for a Pacific Rim "ride". The movie plot was kinda meh, not great but not down right horrible (Remember James Cameron's Avatar). But at the end of it, its a pure spectacle experience, much like Dinospehere was.

I haven't been to CGA since 2012 when it was a Sponge Bob theme, but it was a very popular attraction on that visit. I cannot speak personally to its popularity now. I do know that I have seen multiple discussions/threads on the web/social media (including TPR) where people are calling for the return of the Action Theater. SFDK needs more attractions that the entire family can experience together and (IMO) this will be a very popular addition to the park.

So how much you wanna bet this'll be another Happy Feet at CGA by taking the original film and shortening it to a 5 minute "ride"?

Well, i'm going tomorrow I haven't been back since halloween. There's a storm system that could linger over the city but it should be off and on light showers after 11 am/park opening.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Too bad Discover Kingdom 5D is already outdated. Just across the bay, in San Francisco, they have 7D!!!!! :lmao:

I liked Pacific Rim so I think it'll be fun. I'm not expecting anything ground breaking, but I think it's a good movie for that attraction.

^Why am I not surprised that all this stuff is located at Pier 39? I remember when this opened as a high-class shopping-and-dining area when I was a kid. :lol:

just got back from SF:DK, it was 100% dead in the park. Everything was a walk on, all day. Even Pacific Rim. Which is.... just a edited verison of the movie to be a ride. :lol:

I own the movie on blu-ray. The ride ends with the first and only usage of the gypsy Dangers sword attack and a brief freefall. the screen hasn't been updated and the image was therefore a bit blurry with or without 3d glasses on. sometimes you barely get any mist "rain" on you and other times it hits you square in the face. If you want it in the face, sit in row 5 in the middle.

row 3 4 and 5 are of course the best as they've always been. but row 2 is decent. Row one is the losers row. with how much you'd have to tily your neck to stare up and the motion of the ride when a monster rams trough a skyscraper to attack gypsy, you'll probably experience pain similar to Kong.

It's nice having the theater open again, but this by far doesn't do pacific rim any favors. RIP franchise that never even truly began. :cry:


PS: i'd rate it above Stargate but below Dino Island. i'd rather have Dino Island again or 7th Portal. but 7th portal is marvel so that aint happening.
