POLL: Charlie: Good or bad?

So, you've been on Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. You waited in line. You rode the river, you went in the elevators.

So how was it? Overall.

Well, I went on it and i voted 'Below par'. Read my review to find out why. It just didn't do it for me, it was lacklustre and the boat ride boring. It was nearer very poor rather than satisfactory. The darkness will scare the kids, and there's not enough for them to look at. As for adults, it is just boring on the boat. The handrails on the lifts are too high for kids. It didn't move enough. Too many blank walls. No animatronics. Too much animation, not enough physical theming.

I think Charlie excellent.

Too many people got over hyped about the ride and didn't apprieciate it's intent and purpose. This is essentially a kiddy ride. It isn't even ment to impress us - yet still I find it absolutley superb!

I think Charlie and the chocolate factory is good it has a few technical problems at the moment but this will sort this out as the staff get used to operating it and it is a great addition to the park

What do all you people who thought it was 'excellent' or 'amazing' make of the blank bits? I would like to guage exactly what it is that makes it 'excellent'. Obviously you are in the majority so far, so it is interesting.

Couldn't agree more. I q'd over 2 hours on it's opening day, and in my opinion, I found it really quite boring, and didn't think the elevator was that good - However, I realise this ride is more for kids/families, and probably if I was a lot younger, and hadn't been on rides like Rita/Nemmy etc etc, then it would be really good.

So my vote goes for satisfactory (after a long hard think!)
