  • [Chat] Attraction you love but just one part of it you hate

    Ok so if you have an attraction where you love it but there is just one section or part of it that you wish they would change, post it here! Ok so mine is on pirates a the very end before you go up the lift the three pirates are shooting at eachother. I can't stand that part because I don't like all the guns pointing at me.

    I love Splash Mountain and Grizzly River Run and I love getting wet on those rides. What I hate on the over the top getting every square inch of your clothes getting wet. Wet shoes for 8 hours isn't fun.

      Same here! I hate worrying the whole time about whether I'm going to get completely drenched, and worrying about my purse and the things in it! I seriously have to tell myself in my head, on the way up the hill in Splash Mountain "it's only water, it's only water".

        I completely agree about the Splash Mountain thing. I usually bring a plastic bag to put everyone's phones, wallets and cameras in.

        Back on topic, I don't like (along with everyone else, I think) is how Snow White has such an abrupt, confusing ending. If only they had a little more room..

          I agree with you on the wet shoes/socks. That's really annoying on long days.

          But have to disagree with you on clothes and everything getting wet. Isn't that the point of the ride? The excitement and thrill of the drop, the water, getting wet? On GRR it clearly says "You will get wet, you may get soaked!", and I'm pretty sure Splash Mountain says the same thing beforehand.

          Regardless, aren't you pretty sure your gonna get wet at some point? Take the precautions and put them in a plastic bag or something.

          I don't like getting SOAKED, but I love getting wet. I know what you mean. 9AM Splash Mountain soakness = not good.

            But to answer the question, theyre are a few.

            On BTMRR, anticipating a big drop, but only to slowly go down the drop. Loss of excitement there.

            On Indy, the rat projections and the blowdart scene. They should enhance or take out the rats, put another skeleton or something there. Sharpen up the "blows" of the blowdarts. It just feels like a hard AC on my neck than actual blowdarts.

            The "hidden" drop in Splash Mountain, aka the one you get REALLY wet on. I don't mind it, but I just always cringe when I see it coming. It's scary!

              I agree with the rat room being poorly done. Either fix it or put a different effect in there.

              I would say that I love space mountain (obviously) but I hate that they removed the meteor and/or galaxy effect at the top of the second lift.

                    Love Jungle Cruise but I hate that the PA system on the boats aren't that great and it is difficult to hear some skippers particularly women.

                      Re: Attraction you love but just one part of it you hate

                      I love the Water Rides, but what I don't like is what is said above (the whole shoe's getting drenched bit). I don't mind getting a little wet, but what I hate is getting soaked head to tail. Whilst it wasn't an issue at the DLR, it was a pretty major issue on the River Rapids at Magic Mountain (that was a completely unacceptable amount of wetness).

                      But with the shoes, what I usually do is take my socks off (and if I remember to bring them, wear sandles) then it's not quite as bad. Mind you, getting wet over in Australia is much less of a problem as over in the states, our money is made out of a plasticy material, and is much more waterproof as are other walletry items. So getting our money wet isn't too much of an issue.

                      On topic though, I loved Pirates, thought it was an amazing experience. I didn't actually mind the recent additions, but what I hated was the Jack Sparrow scene at the end of the ride as you are going up the "Waterfall". The dialouge which comes from the scene is just so "blah" and uninteresting. Whoever read the script for that scene (not sure if it was Johnny Depp or a sound-a-like) did not do a good job.
                      Thats my gripe about the ride.

                      Another one while i'm at it is Innovations, whilst I think it's pretty cool (the house of the future and whatnot) what I really hated about it was the whole "Green Energy" exhibit they make you sit through (or should I say Stand through) before getting inside the house. It's just a waste of space/ time, and I really don't care about some energy company over there offering green energy.

                        Ugh that is so true. I dunno if it's the PA system or the obnoxiously loud engine in the middle of the boat...but man I hate not being able to hear.

                          Hint -- next time you go on Innoventions simply walk to the right away from the crowd standing there watching Tom Morrow. You will soon see the "back yard" of the dream house. You can enter there, thereby bypassing all of this.

                              I love the Matterhorn, but it's getting to the point were we ride it only once due to the horrible tracks bothering my back and neck. Sucks because I love that ride despite all of that.

                                You can't really change this because it would ruin the fun, but the very first drop on Tower of Terror. Waiting for it is awful. It's even worse at WDW, because it's silent before the drop.

                                  I love Peter Pan's flight, but i hate that part where you go down at a steep angle because I always feel like I am going to hit the wall.

                                    I don't like that part either. I thought that I was the only one who was unnerved by that.

                                    I love Matterhorn, but I used to (up until this last summer) be afraid of the red eyes and he roar at the beginning of the ride, right after before you get to the crystals. I'm not sure if that's the same things that you're talking about, but still.

                                      Thanks for the tip mate. I will certainly do if (and I'm hoping I do) visit the park again.

                                        My dislikes seemed to have been said, but I'll reiterate them:

                                        I love Matterhorn (name would suggest such), but I hate the tracks. Both side it is hit or miss that it will make my neck or lower back hurt.

                                        BTMRR's drops. They are such a tease.

                                        Alice's random ending. Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite disney films and I read somewhere that Walt didn't think the ending of the film would translate too well to a ride so he designed it to end with the mad tea party, which I think is lackluster. I would love to have the movie ending and somehow have the effect of all the characters chasing the caterpillar car instead of that sudden unbirthday ending.

                                        Haunted Mansion is my favorite ride, but the attic scene seems a waste to me.
