It says it was released because on May 11 will be the 20th anniversary of the fire. I have heard of this but until recently it went to the back of my head. the sad part that just came to my attention was that SFGadv introduced a virtual simulator named Castle Escape where you escape from a burning castle. I feel that this was an extremly poor taste in name chosing.
I do want to get one of these for the main reason that Pics and Footage of the ride are very scarce, hopfully it will be interseting.
