Street Mission - 6.5/10
(I thought 6 was too low and 7 too high
Went on Street Mission today for the first time, and I was slightly underwhelmed.
Don’t get me wrong, the theming is brilliant, and you do feel rather immersed and the animatronics are fab, but it was just a little ‘bland’. This isn’t like Duel where if you aren’t shooting you still have things around you to look at. This is simply “go into a room, and shoot some cookies on a screen while some characters talk, then go to next scene”.
The second to last scene however made up for this, and suddenly turned into the trackless dark ride like Ratatouille we all know and love with a chase scene, moving ride cars and a full wrap around screen to make you feel fully immersed, and it was brilliant! However that is then short lived and you go to the next scene which just simply shows you the scores (I won yay).
I feel like the advertising for the ride really didn’t help... judging by the adverts you think you’re going on some big, speeding chase around some dark streets, making you think it will be at least a little ‘thrilling’ but you go into the ride and it’s all bright colours and no dark streets at all
I think that was one of the biggest factors in why I was so underwhelmed.
All in all it is a perfect addition for families, and it is very good competitive fun! Just not quite up to the level I was expecting.
