I felt the same way about the ride. It starts out promising, then it's....over. A big improvement for the rockets, but still not quite a whole coaster....maybe 2/3. ;) *** Edited 12/22/2005 3:56:54 AM UTC by Acoustic Viscosity***
There is a themed dark ride section, however the park doesn't want to give it all away for free. The entire promo website (as featured on ARN&R) strangely makes little to no mention of the dark ride section, which from all accounts works quite well. I’ll find out for myself some time this week :D
I don't think it's all that impressive looking. Pretty much just Xcel and Rita smashed together. While XCel is XCelent and I would imagine Rita is at least decent, I can't imagine this ride would offer too much more than either and certainly doesn't look like it would top SR in my book.
Australia was "way past due" for a really good ride.....even moreso than SFA... :)
...and this LOOKS like a really solid ride to me. Sure it's short, the rockets ARE short, that's what ya get for eliminating the lifthill, LOL. But the video SEEMS to show *powerful* airtime, and that's what "does it" for me... :)
