    So when the volcano erupts, the water goes over 200 feet in the air. Clever way to get around the height restriction!

    UNBELIEVABLE. Those are literally two songs that are played at TL. That breaks a lot of continuity and creates a copy cat look of TL. Very disappointed.

    So are Disney the only ones allowed to play those songs cause I hate to break it to you but every water park plays those.

    I was at Blizzard Beach the other day and they were playing 90's rock music. I didn't care at all. It's silly.

    We had reports yesterday it was tropical island music. Now today we have 60s music....maybe they aren't trying to let people know all their tricks too early.

    Something that is UNBELIEVBLE is something that defies belief, like if UFO's were to land on the white house lawn this afternoon. Surf music playing at a water theme park is pretty much within most people's bounds of general belief.

    I was hoping for Polynesian thematic music. This isn't a deal breaker but it's a little disappointing.

    I think at this point there's a complete disconnect from Marketing and what's actually being built. They're marketing a water "theme" park. This entails that the park follows a certain theme that is prevelant in all areas of the park. That music takes away from the immersiveness of the theme. Imagine hearing pit bull in the queue for Kong. It's off, and doesn't fit at all. I'd rather honestly hear generic Hawaiian music, it would atleast make it more immersive.

    I think the main difference is meant to be in things like the volcano eruptions, I mean at the end of the day it still has slides, a lazy river and a wave pool so of course it'll play the same music found at other water parks.

    Didn't mean to pin you as a fanboy just seemed a bit strange that only Disney can play certain songs.

    As far as yesterday was concerned, this wasn't a proper Mock.

    This, was a stress test; with miscommunication all around. The construction workers didn't get the memo of people coming, conflicts came arouse of the TapuTapu's being lost at periods of times; and that people had to be more or less escorted into hard hat areas.

    ^ Yeah, that music sounds more like AK than anything. I like AK's music soundtrack, so that is fine with me! Modern pop, not so much. :saywhat:

    Nope, you have to have a 3 park to even register for the event.
