So less than a month to go now and basically in a few weeks both will start having CM previews and soft openings and the reviews will start pouring in! And when it opens to the general public, its going to be a full on summer of long lines and waits for these rides, but which ride do you think will win the ultimate buzz battle? The one everyone will be talking about and telling others they have to do it?
And I'm not talking about which will have the longer lines, we know here due to capacity issues, FP, loading speeds, etc, you cant judge a rides popularity JUST by the line alone. Of course if one is 3 hours and the other is 30 mins, okay maybe a little lol, but I'm not talking about that. I'm saying which one will get more attention and interest from people and be deemed the better ride?
For me personnally I have to say Star Tours 2! From the very little info we got from some people about this ride so far, it seems to be nothing but enthusiasm for it! The multi layered storyline, added characters and being in 3D seems to really capture peoples interest. Of course I'm not suggesting everyone will love it, just saying the general consensus from the small pool of reviews so far is that its a hit. And of course I think many people will love TLM, but I personnally think it will be more out of nostalgia for the film and seeing a real dark ride in DCA for the first time. But if the effects and full on AAs and sets are like POTC, then I know it will have its lovers! But I'm just not sure if the buzz will last as long for TLM like it will be for ST since that will have new experiences for many for a long time to come!
But I could be wrong!
So what do people think? Will the imperial forces of the empire keep people showing up or will Ariel and her friends be charming enough to make people return over and over again. Thoughts?
