Well, this past weekend I had the fortunate, or unfortunate (it's all relative I suppose), chance to experience both the Rockin' attractions.
I DID NOT LIKE THEM AT ALL!
I thought I'd share with you all the letter that I mailed off to Disney today.
Dear Disneyland Resort,
My name is Joseph Nielsen. I am writing you in regards to your recent promotion for Rockin’ Space Mountain & Rockin’ California Screamin’. I wanted to bring to your company’s attention how incredibly disappointed I am in the presentation of these events. It is clear to me that there was not an ample amount of funding put behind these projects. Amateur-looking images in Space’s “sky,” bright lighting allowing Space’s tracks to become visible, and static-sounding speakers on California’s coaster trains made for an excruciatingly under-whelming experience. The music selection being The Red Hot Chili Peppers also did not enhance the experience, nor did it exude the Disney spirit.
I do, however, applaud the attempt and desire to try something new. Sadly, though, this recent endeavor came nowhere near hitting its mark. I cannot wait until these two attractions return to their original glory so I may enjoy them once again.
Disney, please, next time your company decides to embark on its next creative journey please make sure more time, thought, and money is poured into the project.
Joseph T. Nielsen
