My issue, as it often is with delayed ride openings, is that they keep on mentioning that this ride has been in the works for 3 years. So after 3 years, how can it be acceptable for them to be opening late?
It's not personally affecting me, but I do feel for people who would've taken time off work and booked out-of-park hotels and won't be able to get their money back now.
I do agree, It's been in the making for so long and the fact they wait a week for it to be announced that it won't be opening, on the 6th, and the fact they said it would be opening on the 6th 3/4 months before is ridiculous. I know the Smiler was worse, but that was a Roller-Coaster, you know what it is. With a dark ride, the effects can go out of date, and It's a surprise, but the longer you wait the more spoilers that'll be released etc. I'm disappointed as well as may other people are. I just hope Merlin can fix this and this just be a 'false alarm' of some sort.
