Like I said a bazillion times- people either love a ride or hate it. You cannot change that. As for me, I think Everest is a beautiful attraction with a lot of potential, but it really is 'too' short of an attraction in my honest opinion.
I think what bothers me, and others here too, is that there is so much "jumping on the bandwagon."
It's like people can't form opinions of their own.
A majority of folks will not have experienced a new ride or show, but will aptly naysay it when one bad review comes in.
People will counter, saying the pre-experience shouldn't be positive either, since they can't draw that conclusion.. but you live life looking forward to an event, you get excited over what should be a good experience. To go into it with negative opinions fed to you by others is a terrible way to see the world.
The world's not postive, neutral, and bad. Neutral is not real.. it's actually positive to a lesser degree. To be neutral, something needs to not be bad, but might not be amazing or great. Neutral is a lesser degree of good.
