    Question Madagascar ride at Universal Singapore?

    Has anyone heard any more on this ride? I know they had some issues with the ride system and then some of the AA's, and then there was a fire awhile back that damaged some stuff in the ride, but has anyone heard any new news? I remember hearing it was supposed to open this spring or summer. I'm just really curious to see what this ride looks like.

    Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

    *EDIT*

    Ha I just answered my own question. According to this, Universal announced today the ride is finally opening next Monday, May 16th:

    Early reviews seem to be negative on Madagascar. There are at least four projection screens showing scenes from the film... if I wanted to watch the movie, I'd play the DVD at home. The animatronics are practically immobile, and there are no drops (evidently a second level hill was cut from the ride for budget reasons). Sounds like a disappointment so far.

    The second level and the drop were built and then removed due to technical reasons.

    Re: Madagascar ride at Universal Singapore?

    Gotta remember that video was from when technical rehearsals were still going on. The ride officially opened yesterday, so they had a few days to tweak things. While the AA's themselves *look* good, the limited movement is indeed disappointing. And they only have spotlights on them when they speak/do their thing. I think the Looney Tunes water ride at various Six Flags parks do this too.

    This ride is basically the first movie in 7 minutes. Heh. I'm just glad my curiosity has been satisfied as I've been wondering about this ride for months.

    I think it is a great family ride with 0 drops. Something young and old can do together. I want to see more of this here in the States. Obviously here I would like to see more movement etc, but overall I want to see more family rides at Universal.

    Re: Madagascar ride at Universal Singapore?

    I feel that Madagascar is an overrated film and I don't get how it became popular enough to warrant a multi-film franchise AND a whole theme park land. Now if this was a land themed to "Kung Fu Panda" that would've been a whole nother story.

    I can see how this ride can be appealing enough. But I think they should've made this the rapids ride and used the original drop ride format (that's what I keep thinking since they do call this the "crate adventure" for their Jurassic Park ride. Just my thoughts.
