    You would lose that bet. It's a nice, Fantasyland style family dark ride.

    That layout doesn’t include all the scenery or characters, was focusing mainly on the track layout itself. See the lower section in the article for full character list, and the leaked model pics for a sample of the epic scene’s scenery.

    The possibility of that is brought up in the article.

    I'm completely fine with that too. I'm just talking about what Alicia said in her article.

    Super happy for a Universal style dark ride. This is rumored to have the same ride vehicles as SLOP too

    While I haven’t heard anything specific for Yoshi, there has been discussion for everything in SNW to be interactive *somehow*. Donkey Kong would have characters to talk to in the queue. Mario Kart will have the collectible special items and AR. So, somewhere between the queue and ride, I’m sure *something* will be interactive about Yoshi... but no clue what yet.

    Would make complete sense too since this is all based on a video game property which is inherently interactive. Seems like an easy decision for them to make, but I'm glad they're committing to it since its probably not easy to do.

    Did I miss something? Collectible items in MK? Like physical things or just the AR items?

    Id assume AR items. But imagine if they gave you a banana at the start and could throw it at ride vehicles and get them off the ride track. Talk about true immersion!

    I'm imagining something similar to MIB, where the vehicles spin if you hit them in a certain spot. AR does the rest.

    Thank you for another great article Alicia.
    I love the whole outside part. It is why I like the Sues train so much. It gives you a whole other appreciation of all the theming. The inside part is rather small and it would be great if Orlando would get an extended edition for this ride.

    Looks a bit too small for a new Yoshi ride. I mean, I get the fact it's for kids, but it just seems too simple and small.

    It’s a small family ride. Probably close to Buzz Lightyear in length

    Better than the flat ride it was supposed to get in the original plans.

    You mean the pitch meeting plans? Yes. Definitely.

    You'd eat a plastic banana? ;)

    Exactly, here's Buzz's layout. It's not at the same scale but the idea is there.

    For comparison here are a few other ride layouts too.

    Yeah, those. I'd take the omnimover over the generic flat ride any day.

    What is the estimated ride duration of Yoshi? I think that poses a better question than the layout because its the layout that make it seem like a 90 second ride vs a full fledged 5 minute dark ride.
