I doubt it has been like this all the time, but on the stairs up to the station, they are playing the correction block audio fairly loud. The station audio I feel is quite quiet compared to previous years, meaning that the atmosphere doesn't feel the best it could be, because I know when I first went on it in 2013, the music in there started to scare me. Also, you hear the optical procedure announcement when obviously there aren't any! Coaster Bots 2nd channel dispatch video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlV10kAS-9A
) helps to show this in the first 3 seconds if you listen closely, and it dosent even sound like station audio is on! To solve this, I think that the either need to start playing the station audio on the stairs or turn up the volume.
Do ride staff have access to audio pitches and loudness or is that something that only management can do? The reason I ask is because the audio at the start of both lift hills pitches are quite high compared to YouTube videos of the audio. Lastly I have a feeling that the queue/area audio's pitch is slightly lower than before, so it sounds out-of-tune. I believe you have to be very specific with how high or low the pitch can be to be in a key, because between one key and another will sound out of tune.
I know i am being a very harsh nit-picker, but I love that thing so much I want it to be the best it can be.
