I enjoy California Screamin, I do.
It's a fun, thrilling roller coaster that has a loop and starts you off in an exhilarating manner by counting down and blasting you off onto the ride.
But that's all it is. A roller coaster. A fast, thrilling, roller coaster.
There's no story, there's no Disney, there's no substance whatsoever to me.
Yes, I ride this one every time and I love it, but there are some rides that I would sacrifice for the sake of the park's longevity if it were up to me.
I realize it's hard to make a roller coaster into a story, but hey, Disneyland's got quite a few:
Matterhorn, Thunder Mountain, Space Mountain...
SO, it can be done.
I know, it's like "if it ain't broke don't fix it", and this ride surely won't be taken down anytime soon, or possibly ever, but rides like this make me wonder if this is the best Disney can do.
This ride IMO would be fine in another type of amusement park or something, but it's just not for Disneyland.
Sorry to all you die-hard fans out there of Screamin, but for me it's just not up to par.
Anybody agree? Or disagree, want some opinions
