    Silly Symphony Swings

    Do you like the way Silly Symphony Swings looks so far? Is the concept strong enough?

    The concept is burly.

    Executing it, that remains to be determined.

    Although, based on the photo, is seems as
    if the size of the boardwalk queue is what is going to
    entice the attraction altogether as oppose to
    the ride itself.

    Personally, I believe the only thing that can save this bad attraction concept is a themed queue. Hopefully that is what they are doing below. They should also remove those stairs at the front of the attraction and enter starting at the bottom.

    I believe that the stairs are just for construction. They will probably be removed once construction is done.
    The queue is really what is going to make this attraction unique from other wave swingers.
    As we say to the animals, that's the end of the lion.

    So far, it's definitely an improvement over the rotting orange. I can't wait till the queue goes up.

    Looks good, and I love the theme of being at the band concert and being swept up ina tornado. So whimsical and fun.

    Can't tell what it will look like when finished yet, so wait and see on that. Didn't ride it before, won't ride it now, so overall it is merely boring.

    It is a carnival swing ride. They can dress it up all the want. Knott's has the same exact thing with Mexican theme just down the road.

    Nothing unique or Disney about it except the murals and name.

    It is really a shame that they have spent SO much money to do nothing to this ride.

    does anyone have the concept picture for comparison? I can't seem to find it right now.

    Yes.

    Anything referencing Silly Symphonies is great in my book. Classic Disney.

    I think one of the more confusing elements of the ride is that it doesn't seem to reference any Silly Symphony shorts at all, other than by its name. "The Band Concert" was a Mickey Mouse short, not a Silly Symphony.

    I guess the name was chosen because it technically involves a "silly symphony" and because it's nice alliteration.

    Re: Silly Symphony Swings

    Most, if not all, Silly Symphony shorts were Mickey Mouse shorts- and few had any previous Disney characters in them including Mickey Mouse.

    I have a feeling Walt only used Mickey's head on the intro of each SS to get people to see the films and use Mickey's rising star power to his advantage.
