Having been on DBGT today, I’m far from impressed with the state of the attraction.
For the first VR section, my headset had no sound whatsoever. Having ridden it before and knowing what happens, I sat and watched in silence until we reached the “live scene” when I told a ride host about the issue with my headset and she didn’t really do much.
Now onto the live scene:
What a waste of time. All that happened on my run was some strobe lighting and a droning, humming sound in the background. At the very least I thought there would be some music or announcements over the tannoy system but it just felt very rushed and a last minute hack-job to try and save money on staff in that section. Our group was stood waiting for a good few minutes before being ushered through the door and back onto the train. Maybe we got a bad run through and missed some effects but that scene has now ruined any flow the attraction once had.
On a positive note, the second VR section and shop-ending were running well, but the beginning of the ride really ruined my run through.
Quite a few of the group who we rode with had some less than favourable things to say about it, and I really worry for the future of DBGT, especially considering the amount of money that has been poured into it, yet they still can’t seem to get it right.
