Oh yeah I know that haha, like I say I would just hope to see them come up with a long term solution for them. :)

When I first rode in 2013, the projection room was such a disturbing room to wait in, because of the projections and strobes. What makes them so great is due to the 3D patterns on the wall. The only compromise that they could do is have several screens at different angles in the same places (sorry that may be a bit confusing but it is the best way I can think of putting it)to produce a similar effect.

See I thought this but then the whole idea of keeping the room dark may be put at risk as light will be sent outward as opposed to reflected off of the wall. Not to mention would they really spend that much to get custom made screen panels? :lol

Yeah I see what you mean. Reflecting it off a surface dos help make a room darker. :)

I don't think i ever saw the projection mapping ever working in the room. I quite like the dingy dungeon feel it currently has.
