  • [Hollywood] 3D Preference for Forbidden Journey

    Now that Universal Hollywood has removed 3D from forbidden journey, what do you think?

    Personally, I liked that they tried to up the ante with 3D; however, it just made it harder to sit through without the nausea and the screen never felt clear. However, I will miss the little goggles (in one respect, they helped block out some muggle effects).

    The ride itself is fairly disappointing. The queue and outside building are very well themed, but the whole ride is puzzling. The conveyor belt moves too fast as you try to grab a seat. The restraint system makes it hard for larger or heavier people to get in quickly or at all, and the effects are just ok. My favorite part of the ride is the tree that tries to attack you.

    Maybe they shouldn't have subcontracted the work out.

      I do like that they tried the 3D, but after riding both 3 and 2 D, I think overall the 2D experience is superior. Both have their pluses and minuses, but 2D wins out. It's more convenient (no glasses), and because you now have better peripheral vision, to me it actually feels more immersive.

      ^I really am surprised you find the ride "disappointing". I don't agree with any of your points whatsoever... but to each their own. The conveyor belt moves briskly to up the RPH, slowing it down more would both slow down the ride and the line... a lose/lose. There's plenty of time for riders to get seated. The effects are amazing (to me). I will concede you do have a point about larger riders, but that is not a unique problem in this day and age. Plus, given the motions of the ride, what other restraint system would you suggest?
      Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

        I enjoy the ride, but to be honest, my favorite parts kind of are walking through the queue (though I would make the argument that real E ticket attraction is land/surroundings itself). I don't have a problem with system, especially now that 3D has been removed, but my biggest complaint is actually the flow of story, which is literally all over the place.

        I think Gringotts is by far the superior Potter ride in terms of system and story. Too bad it wouldn't go with the castle.

          Since I already wear glasses, adding 3D always gives an awkward extra bulk on my nose and around my vision.

          You have a good point about the ride system keeping the line brisk. I once went where there're was over an hour wait, but it was very bearable (aside from the queue) because it just kept moving. It's got the efficiency of an omnimover since there is not stop/unload for each bench.

            Kill it with fire....the 3D added nothing since it was not filmed in 3D...just made people throw up and more blurry
            Happy Halloween!!!

              I think when Lucy said the belt moves "too fast"she meant that it moves faster than the actual vehicles. If it's moving faster than the vehicles then it's not going to do anything to increase capacity since that is only going to be affected by the speed of the vehicles, and the efficiency of the loading. I suspect that if the belt is moving faster than the vehicles, then it is not happening by design.
              Should Disney speed up the loading belts on all of their omnimover rides? Will that increase capacity?

                Actually, it moves the same speed as the vehicles.

                Technically, I imagine speeding up the belts would increase capacity. Though FJ seems to have been designed with the higher speed in mind, both for the attraction itself, as well as the loading. While it moves briskly, the loading area is very long, generally giving ample time for people to get situated. Other omnimover rides don't have as long of a loading area, and they would not be served in the attraction that way.
                Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

                  I feel it is too fast. I am not 18 anymore and I feel rushed trying to get on.

                    I never rode it with 3D, but judging on how miserably motion sick I got on it without 3D, I'm sure it would have been way, WAY too much for me. I voted for other. I'd like to see a way they could program an option for a much tamer ride for people who can't handle the movement. I really was looking forward to this attraction, and it was a major disapointment that I couldn't enjoy it. I really wanted to.

                      Rode this for the first time in November - thought it was over-rated too.

                        The set design is amazing....many places right out of the movie

                        Only thing holding it back are the screens...just too much of those but the rest of the ride is pretty dam amazing and the tech behind it is more then anything Disney has done in an America Theme park since Indy
                        Happy Halloween!!!

                          I think many would also like a tamer option. I already had to tell a few people, based on knowing their tolerances in past theme park rides, that this is tough for motion sickness and may be something to skip.

                          If anyone is worried about screen motion sickness but they still want to try (even for a second time), I recommend what my best friend told me after I got quesy from my first ride : Try to pick/ focus on specific points on the screen rather than on the general action. It helped enough that I can get through the ride and enjoy the other parts without needing recovery once the ride is over.
