    HolidayWorld question

    This is kind of a joint thread with DLR forum, but has anyone ever ridden the Sleepy Hollow caoster at HolidayWorld? I seriously doubt Disney will ever do anything with the premise, but from what little pictures I've seen of the HW it doesn't look themed at all.
    Forget 'Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln,' Samantha Brown is Disney's most sophisticated animatronic.

    It's not themed at all... it's just a wooden coaster (although a spectacular one, at that). It's proper name is The Legend. The ride of the coaster "represents" the ride of Ichobod. That's as themed as it gets.

    That said, it is one of my favorite wooden coasters of all time.
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

    I found a ride video, it does look like a sweet coaster. But yeah, nnot themed at all. Pity, it's a ride idea with such theming potential.

    There's only so much theming you can do with a coaster. Sure they could've gone for a decent queue like Dueling Dragons but what's the point if the rest of the ride is just going to rely on an unthemed experience. In my opinion, the best themed rides are always the ones that move at slower paces.
