By popular demand!!
Now, first may I say that, I am a Disneyland Annual passholder for seven years and, a former WDW Employee who has attended the openings of Epcot, MGM and AK. And, when a new ride opens at any park, I am usually first in line to attend. Recent attractions I LOVE include Soarin (love Epcots set-up), Rockin Roller Coaster, Indy, Fantasmic, TOT.
Though, I must say that, WDW has hit a trifecta of simply dreadful recent attractions. First off, Stitch Encounter. What a MAJOR step down from Alien Encounter. So, what AE scared children - THEY DONT NEED TO GO ON! They have Mickey's Fair, Winnie the Pooh land, Dumbos, etc, ALL attractions most adults only tolerate for the little ones, so, why could they not tolerate to wait outside while adults have a little fun on a scary ride? Or better yet, take them on AE, make them a man! Anyway, Stich is simply a lame, boring attraction.
Over at Epcot, Mission Space. You have got to be kidding me. It makes me sick. I have NO desire to ever go on this again (while I LOVE Test Track - so original and innovative!). MS is an utter failure which will date poorly in a couple of years.
Then, there is EE at AK. ANd, I must say that, after riding this ride, I can honestly say that, THUNDER is a better ride! Better themed! More dramatic! More exhilirating. EE is a short ride with little themeing (where's the sound effects? Where the animation? Yeti is ok, BUT, nowhere close to the worlds largest AA, which can be seen at Disney Seas a creature buried deep within the superior Journey to the Center of the Earth)
EE is an utter failure when you go up the chain into the anti-climatic drop that takes you to the "end of the track", where you sit for a GOOD 10 seconds while the track switches behind you DOING NOTHING! I mean, what an incredible moment for a gargantuan Audio Animatronic sequence! All we get is a fake, non-moving bird on a sitck! Then, the ride goes bakwards, which, is now a very old concept (been there done this on Zoomerang, Circus World, back in the 70's, Deja Vu, 6 Flags, Mummy USH, I could go on).
Then, the ride goes forward for the finale which is dark and lame. SPACE MOUNTAIN, built in the 70's, MUCH better!
So, WDI, is this all you have in you? This coaster that is slightly better then the antiquated Mine Train at 6 Flags Over Georgia?
What a waste of time! A friend offer a FP after I rode the first time and I said, thanks, but no thanks.
EE - NOT worth the vacation and anyone who says it is is merely settling for mediocrity!
