    The launch is really the only thrilling part.

    The phrasing of this sentence kind of makes it sound like you went on it because someone died and were disappointed when it didn't also happen to you :lol:

    Nick's right...they're really small. And then they are reflected somehow.

    Yea the real screen is above and reflected onto an angled mirror behind the "window'. If you crouch down and look up you can see the real screen above, and it's even smaller than it appears in the reflection.

    While the new narrator certainly isn't as bad as our friend over at Flight of Passage....but who are directing these new videos? Her performance is so bland. Not really inviting a sense of fun or adventure.

    My theory on that is they want to keep a sense of calmness during the preshow given the ride's unfortunate history.

    That makes some sense. It's an unfortunate choice for the ride experience though.

    After the "incident" (s) (yes, plural) a big part of what turned people off to the ride was how the preshows and warnings were seen as stressful and scary.

    In other news, wait times seem much better between the two sides now. We shall see how long that lasts.

    Yes. Much more even wait times with a different green mission. And I'm seeing a lot of happy little kids riding (and even re-riding.) Kids asking which dot to stand on to be the pilot is so cute. I'm pleased with the update.
