has this happened to anyone?
i'm extremely dissapointed at the way they are promoting Expedition Everest. NOWHERE on ANY of the commercials or any other advertisements have i seen "open weekends only". i took the family there a couple of weeks ago and we went on a thursday (to avoid weekend crowd). my wife and i took off work just for that reason alone. anyways we get to AK at 9:00am, pay for the tickets, walk about 100 yards into the park and there's a hostess with a sign saying "Expedition Everest closed".
so i go up and ask when they think they will have it up and running. she says it's only open on weekends and that it's "not officially open".
not officially open???? NOWHERE on ANY advertisements are they telling the customers this. look around. every internet, magazine, and commercial is misleading everyone.
we deliberately went to AK for that ride. after, we went to guest relations and told them as nice as possible to please take the "EE is closed" sign and place it outside the park in front of the ticket booths. that way people who come during the week don't get suckered into paying for a ticket or wait in line to get in.
even a passholder would be pissed off going through the all the B.S. of parking the car, walking, waiting, only to find out it's closed AFTER they enter the park.
who can we write to let them know they are really placing a negative experience on many guests by doing this. i know i can't be the only one who's watched the commercial and went during the week to ride it.
