Disney and Other Theme Parks aka PB's fairgrounds for young girls

Recommended Posts

I checked the estimated ride time from pop to Epcot and it’s slightly longer than the bus. Be very interested if that’s true in practice. 

 

Edit 

Dad beat me to it. I await your guys reviews. At least they reinstated the bus to typhoon lagoon. The old drop and Disney springs system was awful

Me and the wife are back at Universal for a week and have just ridden Hagrid’s Magical Motorbike Adventure having followed its construction with excitement for 18 months.

It’s superb and I was grinning like an idiot the whole way round 🙂

hopefully the queues will be less when we go back in 3 years...

As brilliant as it is, they’ve built a ride that takes forever to board and takes a small number of riders per train.

Another ride with the same interest wouldn’t have as long of a queue IMO, as riders would get on and off much quicker.

We just rode Hagrid’s again, this time in the dark and it was immense. We were lucky as we got the front row which made it all the better.

That’s probably enough queuing for now but I’m so glad we’ve ridden it.

Speaking of Universal does anyone have any idea what kind of ride that Jurassic world one will be yet?

 

Also how do uni put up rides in record time........while disney are still 2 years away from opening GOTG?

It's definitely a coaster, possibly with what is known as a Top Hat track. We discussed it on my Universal Podcast a few weeks back as I had no idea what a top hat was. Rumoured name is Velocicoaster but no confirmation on that.

 My guess with Uni is they just have a regular team of contractors for building new attractions whilst Disney have to employ everytime. Remember, they also have people in most of the year preparing for Halloween Horror Nights. Basically, they have their shit together, Disney don't!

Midway Mayhem posted a video of the track for the new Jurassic coaster a week or so ago. It’s currently sitting in a backlot.

They’ve removed the 3D from the Minions ride, rendering it utterly terrible and a bit pointless. I’m at a bit of a loss as to why they’ve done that.

It’s bizarre. I mean it was designed to be in 3D which is why so many things in the film are pushed into your face. I’m not looking forward to going on it next month

I saw earlier that Rob Zombie is bringing his House of 1,000 Corpses to HHN this year. I wish I liked that sort of stuff but you’d never get me to go to anything like that. I love watching the reveal videos for what Universal has planned but, the last time I was in Florida in October, I was SO glad to leave the park before it went dark. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween is probably my limit!

I’ve made sure to watch all the IP’s before I get there. I’m currently watching house of 1000 corpses and I think the house will freak me out. But I’m 30 minutes in and think the film is trash!

Did you see that Rob Zombie has a ScareZone this year for Hillbilly Deluxe? 

Thank fuck I get a Ghostbusters House and Zombieland ScareZone as the other IPs are not doing much for me. Actually I forgot, Killer Klowns will be a good laugh and I’m interested in how they turn Us into a house

I was wondering how they’re going to do Us too. I haven’t seen then film but having watched the trailer and read the synopsis there doesn’t seem to be any stand-our obvious imagery associated with it so it’ll be interesting to see what HNN does with it. I thought the Killer Klowns looked good last year too. I love how they go all out but it still wouldn’t make me go.
