They had so much pottential with these trains. They could have made something seriously great and detailed that would blow Swarm out of the water. The name of the ride style WING Walker should have been ther perfect match for this theme. The whole shape of the metalwork bares a resemblence to a giant pair of wings in itself, so why not make the most of it and sculpt a shell as such?
They could have utilised the front rows of each train for the eagle's head, then had the rows behind as it's wings, with the final row acting as the tail. Surely the idea behind this ride is that you are experiencing what it's like to fly on the wings of an eagle (Pretty sure I read that phrase somewhere)? If that is indeed the case then why are you perched on the edge of a bit of metal with a poxy little eagle on top of it?!
I mean for goodness sake they don't even look that detailed in an attempt to make up for it! Also, I'm no expert on birds, but when was the last time you saw five eagles flying in a line on after the other?
They missed a seriously great oportunity to truely marry together the ride concept and theme. It's a massive shame, as this could have been so much more Edit
I've just found this
on the Wild Eagle minisite. That is how the trains should have looked, so why don't they? It'd be interesting to here what the reasons are for this.
