I saw a small article in my local paper this morning saying that the Chocolate World ride @ HP would be closed for the next three months while they give it a makeover. Something about some new features including singing cows . The remodeled ride is supposed to open again around April 1.
Yeeeeees, to El Rio del Tiempo. In my opinion, no one's life is complete until they've sat in a hot tub drinking margaritas while three guys stand behind them playing guitars.
Free chocolate, yes. But then they drop you off right above the fudge shop/bakery. You can almost hear the ghost of Milton taunting you... "Just try and get out of here without buying $20 worth of chocolate. Mwah-hah-hah-hah."
RGB, who still remembers the days of the "real" factory tour and full size candy bars at the exit.
I also remember the Factory tour from my pre teen days. I used to love going through the real factory and getting a free bar at the end of the tour was always a bonus. But then again what was the cost of a full size bar back then (probably a quarter, if that). Any upgrade can help the ride even though it still packs them in.
