Re: Fright Nights

I have to admit, I’m quite excited about Fright Nights this year. If what I’m hearing about the new maze and it’s name is true, I could see it being really fun and somewhat quirky too.

Fingers crossed for a great Fright Nights 2019!

Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Hollywood Studios

Personally I’ve always seen this ride as Disney trying to ‘compare sizes’ to Universal in terms of technology and how much they can stuff into one ride. Not that it’s a bad thing, but like you say it does raise the question of if it’ll be an attraction that everyone can enjoy as presumably the rest ...

Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Hollywood Studios

I’ve also heard the delay has been in part due to imagineers not designing a locking mechanism for the ride vehicles in the drop section of the ride, meaning vehicles were slightly moving during the free fall. I have to say. It’s oversights like these that make me question Disney’s ability in creati...

Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Hollywood Studios

The attraction utilises a similar system to Ghost Train as part of its pre-show. The main experience however is anticipated to be fairly high capacity, at least high enough!
