    Re: I went on Pirates!

    As you enter the bayou the lighting changes are apparent. After the waterfall there is no singing but music of Yo ho. After the second waterful it is obivous that there is new music. Very dark thematic music. You then approach the dark cave where a waterfal is going down and Davy Jones ghost appears. You the see Jack Sparrow throughout the ride. I'll post a video in a bit.

    "amazing"???

    Either you didn't go on the "Pirates" ride that I went on, or you use the term "amazing" just a dash too liberally.

    Re: I went on Pirates!

    I realized that report sucked so bad, soh heres another try.

    As soon as you enter your boat you can tell that there is much more new lighting and fireflys. Everything is the same up to the waterfall. After the first decent you hear the familiar "Yo Ho" song, but with no lyrics. After the second waterfall the new movie music kicks in. It actually sounds really cool. When you see the skeleton on the ship, you can also tell that there is much more new lighting there complete with new lighting. Everything is the same in the treasure scene, except that there is the aztec box on the side. As you enter the dark cave you see a "waterfall", which is actually projected on to mist, from inside the waterfall Davy Jones appears and warns you. You then enter the battle sequence, there was much more fog that I remembered there. Barbarossa is standing on the ship telling the townspeople to give him Jack Sparrow. As you go through the town, the pirates want the Mayor to reveal the place on Jack instead of the treasure. Right behind the pirates in jack, hiding next to a dress shop. In the next scene he is behind the man who used to be holding chicken, but is now holding what appears to be a gun. When you enter the last scene, everything is the same until you reach the lift, where you see Jack sitting in a chair with gold all around him. OVerall the ride is great, awesome. The effects are pretty cool, but im just glad to have my pirates back.

    Re: I went on Pirates!

    I hit the soft opening today as well and it was really awesome; the changes are all taseful and very well done and I have to say the Jack Sparrow animatronics are very lifelike and convincing. They've added Sparrow to the wall inside the ride building queue alongside the other pirates as well; overall, very cool, very appropriate and not at all a stain on the ride's history.

    Honestly the only people I can see complaining about this are the types who are never happy with anything anyway and live to be sour about stuff like this.

    They did? I didn't see that, the line was moving inside the front part of the building
