Yeah Falcon is. Battle Escape isn't (mix).
So yeah, the tweet says you will encounter it on the Falcon. So it'll be a screen, and not an AA. So right thread after all. lol
Sorry, that's not a rathtar and it's the wrong ride.
I jumped the gun. My bad.
I’d like to jump in and say that personally, I find screens far more immersive than any AA. Naturally, they’re better at conveying realistic motion. With AA’s no matter how impressive they look or how complex they are, they always fall into the uncanny valley.
With that being said, for an attraction to be fully immersive, screens need to be combined with physical sets. This is where I think Universal suffers. Screens are supposed to enhance the experience to the point where you can’t tell the difference between the set and the screen. Over-reliance on them result in the rider being very aware that they are watching a movie.
Unfortunately I’ve never been to Universal (hoping to go for my Senior Trip in 2019), so I can only rely on videos. The one 4D dark ride that I’ve been on was Curse of Darkastle (RIP) and it was far more immersive than any other dark ride I had been on in recent history. I’m extremely hyped for Universal.
Well, if you liked Dark Kastle, which I've rode on a number of occasions, you'll love quite a few of Universal's attractions. Dark Kastle is (was) good, but Universal's similar attractions are many multiples better.
Screens and screen-based rides are not a bad thing. Screens also are not going away, even in rides that are primarily physical (think how Navi River Journey incorporates them).
The “problem” is when almost every attraction is 3D or is screen-based in a park (*cough*USF*cough*). By all accounts this will be changing, so I have hope for the next wave of attractions at the park to balance things out.
I've resigned myself to any concept will have its supporters and detractors. We all have to form tastes based on that, and it might not line up with others or even the general public.
