That was one of the cringiest things ever...the reactions I mean.The retheme of the Jurassic Park River Adventure at Universal Studios Hollywood is complete and it looks incredible!
Here is the old ride:
Agreed, that was actually painful to watch.That was one of the cringiest things ever...the reactions I mean.
I think this is my only problem with it, but I suppose the new story is that now you're already in the park before you get on the ride?Also where are the gates at the beginning?! They were iconic!
The interior scene looks like the best part and great fun for sure. The screens don't look bad by any means, in fact they look great, I'm just somewhat tired of screens!I think this is my only problem with it, but I suppose the new story is that now you're already in the park before you get on the ride?
I like quite a few of the changes, the new interior scene after the main lift hill seems like a big upgrade, sure it'll look better in person. I think the new screen based sequence is done extremely well, the vfx team clearly did an incredible job here and I think it works well enough.
I have ridde both the Orlando and the Japan version and the Japanese one seemed to have all the FX running and the animatronics looked better taken care of.Nothing that hasn't been said really, but it's weird to feel so completely indifferent to it. I don't dislike what they've done with it - parts of it look fantastic - but I'm not desperate to ride it either.
The Jurassic Park gates, followed by the huge brachiosaurus, was such an epic start to the ride, so while the aquarium looks amazing, it doesn't have that same wow factor as an opening piece.
Orlando will clearly do this, but I've got a feeling that Japan won't. I hope not anyway; it'll be nice to keep one as the original, and Japan's has always seemed slightly better to me; the animatronics have always seemed a bit more impressive.
It's also notable that the board you're referring to likes to fanboy over Disney and hate on Universal (especially their leader)!Another message board that shall remain nameless seems to hate it, but it’s notable that no one on that board seems to have actually been on it.
Agreed. This was an epic start with the JP score playing in the background really felt like you was entering the park. Shame that has now completely been lost.The Jurassic Park gates, followed by the huge brachiosaurus, was such an epic start to the ride, so while the aquarium looks amazing, it doesn't have that same wow factor as an opening piece.
So I've heard that the new animatronic to the left isn't actually finished yet. Right now it's just a head and very far from the T-Rex, but apparently once the entire body is working and gets installed, it'll look better and will be closer to the T-Rex. But even if that's true, I have to agree with everything you said in your post above.My biggest gripe is they have completely ruined the T-Rex at the end. The way he appeared through the smoke waterfalls and lights then followed your boat down the drop was just epic and the highlight of the whole ride. Now he just appears with no smoke or water and most will be distracted by the other animatronic on the left. I suppose at least he is still there..
This. This this this this this. The middle scene is just so random, but also manages to feel cheap and lacking as well. Actually, the whole ride feels lacking now tbh. And I know people are saying it needed a refurb because it was looking old and tired, and I agree, it was looking drab. But they could have just refreshed it and marketed it as simply that. I know the marketing higher-ups and the execs wouldn't like that, because money, but I just wish they did that and maintained the charm of the original. This whole new thing feels equally as soulless and on the nose as the Jurassic World films did.Also in the original you see the damaged boats and then take a diversion, only then do things start to go wrong. In the re theme things just randomly go wrong with escaped dinos whilst you are still following the correct route?
Ah, you've got to love those Disney shills, both regarding their movies and now their theme parks! (I really don't in case you're wondering)It's also notable that the board you're referring to likes to fanboy over Disney and hate on Universal (especially their leader)!
