Believe it or not, rumor out of WDI is that that will similarly place a Bloom and Knightly (or whatever hername is) AA in in time for the 3rd movie.
I LOVED the Davy Jones effect, but felt the projection was too good and too clear if that makes any sense. It is a trip to go right through it.
By the way, when I was at the park on it's opening daythe line for Pirates went all the way down Main St. to the front gates, but only took 90 minutes! They flirt with 3000pph capacity on that thing when all the boats are on.
The purists just want the raping back. ;) To those who don't know:
There used to be a pretty girl in the barrel, and the drunken pirate in front of the barrel held a piece of her negligee and was searching for her. He said "I'd love to hoist my colors upon that wench......I be willing to share I be..." and other stuff like that. How's THAT for a family ride! :)
I was hesitant when I first heard of the re-hab of Pirates. It has long been my favorite dark ride... ever since I first rode it back in '82, so obviously I was more than a little concerned when I heard they were "modernizing" it to tie it into the movie.
After seeing this video, I can definitely say that Disney made the right decision. It has actually improved the attraction, surprisingly.
