The drop on Dudley is nothing compared to JPRA. You'll be fine!
... but a lot more wet.
The way they are pitching random ideas, I'm beginning to think it's Mark Woodbury trying to identify relevant IPs.
I kind of think that, if you put more weight in the back of the "log", you won't get as wet. When I rode it, I emerged pretty much dry and it was two adults in the back half and two kids in the front. JPRA soaked me and had all the adults in the front of the boat. Mind you, this may have just been luck of the draw. I typically don't give those rides too many shots at me.
How can Mark Woodbury never visited Islands of Adventure?
Smoke and mirrors. "I've never been there" but in reality, "I basically live there." Trying to throw us off his trail.
Heh, he hasn't posted since you and Quint questioned his identity
If they remove anything I hope it’s not the facility to blast people in the face with water from a very short distance.
I was simply being facetious. Perhaps we struck a nerve?
That's what I'm telling myself. I think being able to see the whole chute as you're walking up is a little more nerve racking.
I usually get soaked on JPRA, so we'll see how that goes...
You're a feisty one, aren't you?
If this ride ever closes I will be first in line to buy the penguin 'double crossing' signs. Hilarious.
Seriously, I know I've said this before - but I will be devastated when Dudley and Popeye go away.
Whenever the time comes when Toon Lagoon is on the chopping block, would Universal ReTheme the attractions and the land or completely overhaul everything including the rides?
I would hope they'd leave the current attractions, and just do a new attraction in the theater. Dudley and Popeye/Bluto are still perfectly fine and people like them, doesn't make sense to tear them out.
Yeah, but what about a Fight Club ride?
Would you have to fight yourself or does this involve fighting someone else? I didn't know if you meant the movie. If it is fighting myself, I'll admit right now that I'm pulling my punches.
Rehab of Dudley is underway:
I'd hooe for a true chop. Clean slate to do something awesome because those two rides take a LOT of real estate.
I love this studio, he does great work...including the big Jack facade for the HHN 25th house
“The first rule of Fight Club is we don’t talk about Fight Club...” so it’s anybody’s guess really
Marble Studios does some really good work judging from what I can see on his instagram.
Popeye is a perfect rapids ride so I’d rather they don’t attempt to change it. Dudley looks great externally but I’d love it if they sort the inside parts out.
