Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Hollywood Studios

In regard to ride vehicles not in operation is what I meant aha. It’s been reported that the ride often runs with only one track, thus halving capacity. Sone boarding groups experiencing hour delays is a bit concerning! I really hope it all gets sorted soon, imagine a world where two of the best rid...

Re: Walt Disney World - Disney's Hollywood Studios

I wouldn’t jump the gun on the ride working just yet, with full ride and queue evacuations being a trend and rumours of limited capacity I think it could be a bumpy few months yet...

As long as it’s all done by my visit I’ll be happy though!

Re: Wicker Man - General Discussion

Out of curiosity, do we know if the usual GCI winter maintenance addresses areas of roughness on the coaster? I found Wicker Man to be borderline unbearably uncomfortable on the turn after the twisted double down toward the latter half of 2019, even opting against riding it on more then one occasion...

Re: Scarefest - General Discussion

I have also been at the event this year and have some thoughts on the overall event and the experiences throughout. I've always held some very strong opinions on Scarefest and it's mazes, some of which being quite controversial, and this year is no different!  I feel that an important distinction ne...

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!

Currently it’s expected that Avengers Campus Paris will be opening in 2021 yes, that being said I’d expect to get a solid opening year on Sunday!
