    When I trained for Disaster the first thing i learned was how to evacuate the attraction. I think that says it all. :)

    I have heard that many times from current and former cast members.

    Nope, they got rid of the portion of Agent Korvac and Hobbs exchanging before guests got to Sullivan's Garage.

    So yes, RIP Stink Pickle chances in Orlando.

    This should be tempered somewhat. I think lots are thinking if they see one TV or projection in a ride from today till 30 years from now it's somehow Universal going back to it's old ways.

    (I look forward to the "screens are better" rants in the coming years as Disney deploys more of them.)

    It sounds like it's a lighting effect on the walls to make it feel you're driving quickly through a tunnel.

    Of course I get to the park today and the ride is at 60 minutes. As soon as I approach the entrance they close it down.

    Stupid ride breaking down...

    Media event May 2nd. Dwayne Johnson's birthday May 2nd. This is either the world's biggest coincidence or he will be there for the opening event.

    I think people should expect screens incorporated into almost every attraction (doesn't seem as if Potter will). People's issue with screens are when screens are what most of the ride relies upon.

    I continue to point to NRJ, even though it's a bad ride, as a point of reference. Screens are used a decent amount throughout, but you don't notice it too much because the environment surrounding you is so physical. Hopefully this is more the way UOR moves towards going forward.

    It's in technical rehearsals. There's a sign that literally says it could go down at any time.

    As a tribute to Disaster, at the end of the war room you'll hear a familiar phrase

    Im over the whole “ I had fun with my friends on the ride so I liked it” reviews. Yea well I have fun with my friends at Lake Compounce on the Wildcat, but doesnt make it any less horrible of a ride. Then especially when you factor in this is friggin Universal building this ride, Im sorry but its just unacceptable...JMO of course

    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    Even sped up, that musion scene looks interminable. That should never have been directly transferred over to this version as part of the ride itself.

    Yes. How dare people have fun with family and friends - especially at a theme park of all places. The nerve...

    Yes, I much prefer the "I don't like it so no one else is allowed to like it" reviews.
