Remy's Ratatouille Adventure | Inside Universal Forums
  • As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to impact everywhere, we understand our users will have a lot of questions about how it affects the theme parks. We are entering unprecedented waters, and honestly, the answer is either "yea, probably", or "Too early to tell". We just don't know specifics until the theme parks give us an answer. At this time, we're asking to please leave the COVID talk to the appropriate COVID threads, and if something officially and specifically is impacted by a closure, then we can discuss it further in the respective threads. Thank you!

Think of it as a more tame, sedate Spider-Man/Transformers.
Think of it as 40% sets 60% screens, the sets in the paris version are very large and very impressive and much more memorable than the screen bits.
First up, it has essentially no motion base movement. It’s there, but it feels more like loose connections than actual motion.

As for sets being 40%, that’s nuts. The intro has a Paris set, then there is one scene that is a pretty simplistic set, then it’s mostly screens. No integration of the screens like Spiderman, or even Transformers. It’s pretty much a screen ride.

It is a VERY mild ride. It’s cute, with some neat effects, but not worthy of being in the same sentence of Spiderman. Unless you say IASW is similar to Pirates of the Caribbean.

Plus, am I just imagining I read it will be without 3D here?

Tim Tracker recently did a vlog at Epcot and showed the preview center. He seemed disappointed this ride was mostly screen based. If I recall, its like, 85% screen and 15% practical sets? I wouldn't get my hopes too too high here, although it could be a nice little addition this park needs.
He's disappointed about something we knew all along.

I like the Tracker videos since he has a nice friendly easy going manner. But his knowledge of the parks, and what's happening in the future, often seems less than an average poster on this site.

Not saying we all don't have busy lives, but I mean he's actually at the parks every single week, edits vlogs about them, is having a kid soon, dude likely doesn't feel the need to catch up honestly. He also likes a good relationship with Disney and Universal anyways, so whether or not he knows may not even be the case. Cant blame the guy though. Love his genuine enthusiasm for the parks

I actually have to disagree here. Ratatouille has its faults, but I don’t think this is one of them.

The first screen? Yes that’s a hard transition. But the kitchen rack, serving cart, sewers, and final party are all integrated really well into their scenes, imo. The most jarring aspect, I think, is the floor, but there’s really no getting around that lol.

I find most of the transitions on the ride stop the action and make for a weird pacing. But maybe that's just me.

How did everything else get a date besides this? Isn't this one the most close to being done?

This is Summer. Everything else they talked about was Spring. They probably don’t want to risk giving out a date just yet.

From WDW President Josh D’Amaro... Gusteau’s sign installed overnight. I worry how this sign will affect the forced perspective of the Eiffel Tower as it seems to be fairly high and in close proximity.

I imagine from ground level, it won't matter as you probably won't be able to see both at the same time.

I know you won't be able to see the Tower from the Ratatouille courtyard (they've made it so it's near impossible), but depending on how high the sign is, I just hope it can't be seen from the main WS pathways.

EDIT: Nevermind, not worried about sightlines anymore, but more how cartoonish it is:

Ya, not entirely sure how I feel about this either but I mean WS hasn't been the same since Frozen. I guess I'm more used to it now but not a great look.
