    Re: A compromise restoration of POTC

    I don't think the movie tie-ins are going anywhere. I also don't think they need to. However, I would like to see the mist screen used as something other than a movie tie-in in exchange for an AA Davy Jones.

    I agree Disneyland Traveler. It is and will always be my favorite ride in the park.

    Re: A compromise restoration of POTC

    I actually love the mist screen.

    Also, I've felt this since I was a kid: The best part of the ride to me (the drops) are at the beginning and the ending of the ride is kind of anti-climactic. You go up a large conveyor belt and the ride is over.

    Anyone else feel this way? Don't get me wrong, the ride itself, despite the Depp makeover, is a classic.

    Re: A compromise restoration of POTC

    I just wish...that during the Halloween Events (or AP events) they switched the ride to classic mode....and just had the original dialogue (or at least take the jack stuff out) and turn off the mist screen....and let us fan enjoy the old ride...that's all i ask

    Interesting thought.

    Re: A compromise restoration of POTC

    They should randomize it so that scenes change, and you never get the same combination of scenes/characters on one ride through that you would get on another ride through, even if you remained in the same boat. Characters could appear or disappear, or at least the words they say can change. Projected images can change. There should only be one appearance of Jack Sparrow, but you never know when that will be. Maybe not until the end when you're going up the ramp, for example. But you should only see him once. I personally prefer the old style dark tunnels with the unseen voices - as a kid I was sure a pirate was about to jump into the boat at any moment. Far more effective than any visual effect. And I would make the section from the first drop through the second drop be a full-blown hurricane, with wind, light spray of rain, waves crashing, pirates screaming in the distance as they drown, and total darkness except the moonlight.

    Re: A compromise restoration of POTC

    Screw the compromise! Just bring it back to its original glory. With updated effects and all. The first POTC film was good, but the sequels were very forgetable (and I saw most of them in the theaters!), like the Star Wars prequels. I also can't stand Johnny Depp at all. A very overrated actor in my opinion.

    Yeah, I feel the same way as you. The ride is underground so that conveyor belt is sadly needed. It would be so cool If the ending was a drop off of a waterfall!

    Well, not exactly--but that's for another discussion.

    Re: A compromise restoration of POTC

    I'm noticing more & more of my fellow Buccaneers preferring the Ride as it was pre-1997 ... I couldn't agree more (although I am greatful for the rehabs & improvements to the boats - especially the audio) and I imagine we all wish the Pieces of Eight Shop was return to its original lustre ...

    Re: A compromise restoration of POTC

    I don't mind Barbossa. Keep him and change the Jack dialogue to something like he doesn't want Jack or anyone else beating him to the treasure. Restore the original audio to the other Pirates: They don't have Jack as a priority. The sacking of this town is now the piratical equivalent of It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World with everybody looking for treasure for themselves and not really caring about what stuff happens along the way.

    Re: A compromise restoration of POTC

    I like the first two Jacks, but the third one should be removed. The last scene should either have the pirate balancing on the gunpowder barrels back, or do a completely new scene with modern technology. Something to act as a grander finale.

    The mist screen is a neat effect, and I love how you just appear in the ship battle after passing through ; but I hate Blackbeard's projection and the dang thing plays far too often. You hear it 3 times in that blasted tunnel.
    Women, they make the highs higher and the lows more frequent.

    Wow, I had no idea there were that many changes.

    "Pirates of the Caribbean" was ransacked by pirates.

    Re: A compromise restoration of POTC

    Wasn't this ride originally supposed to be a walk-thru attraction?

    Imagine that. I'd say it would have been a disaster and there's no way it would have survived as a classic.
