I think it will be cool, it's just that the IP isn't particularly interesting, at least, not for the moment. They also kind of break the "islands" concept at IoA, where everything was based on a literary franchise or theme.

I mean, there isn't much that says to me that it ISN'T going to be another 4D ride, but this time with puppets!

And I thought the literary theme was always a happy accident, rather than something they tried for, based on what I know of the history of the park.

I just assumed it was going to be based on the wildly popular children's book...

Amateur - I can usually last at least 20 minutes. But I've never tried it with puppets before.
