    The ride sounds great, but capacity seemed like it would be an issue. Anyone know if the wait-times have made in somewhat inaccessible?

    I'm not certain about capacity, DG. We will have to hear from others that have experienced the ride.

    Obviously there are was not enough chaos in the World if CNN merits talking about a silly ride at a Disney theme park to fill a few minutes of their air time. Of course, I reckon that Disney paid CNN to include this feature.. because frankly, who would care about it? Except maybe for Anderson Cooper, who is "closeted" and probably a Disney loving geek like most of us gay men.

    I disagree on this, I think its the best thing to come to innoventions in a long time, and it has the elements I expect from an Epcot attraction

    I would say right now wait times range between 20-40 minutes during the day, 20 minutes or less in the evening.

    I like how getting something on CNN is such a big deal these days. It must be good if you get people that sit there and report about the stupid politicians all day to report something not having to do with politics.

    Oh my! Do you think you might be giving too cheerful an appraisal?

    That's the spirit. Glad to hear a positive review as this comes across as an attraction I would very much welcome the opportunity (and consider it a privelege) to try out.

    That's a bit of a wait, yet on par with many other rides. Plus, a 20-40 minute wait to design one's own thrill ride would be well worth it to me.

    Well put! Regardless of a person's political persuasion, life is quite a ride. Get in, buckle up... and slam it into gear!

    That's good, thanks.

    It'll be near the top of my to-do list when I go back. Maybe in 2011.

    Re: CNN Touts EPCOT's New SUM OF ALL THRILLS "Make-Your-Own" Ride

    I'm looking forward to this new ride/experience, but a word of warning: I read that the most intense setting on the ride is very very intense indeed, and may be too rough for a lot of people. I would be cautious about trying it, for anyone but the most hardened (read: craziest) thrill ride junkies.

    Thanks for the heads up, disneyfann. We'll take that on your advisement.
