    Why the hell was that needed?

    That's actually a rule I've had since day 1 on these boards and the mods of past and present have been wasting time trying to combine them to make it easier for people to read.

    But with everyone acting like an ass lately - they decided to let you guys know to stop doing that so they can actually mod all the stupid comments in recent weeks.

    I think the capsules have audio in them - for some reason I recall this from other parks as well.

    Yeah, Aquatica plays a thumping heart beat sound on Ihu's Breakaway falls.

    I'm mad i'd have just as much fun at Volcano Bay as i would at Adventure Island - which is literally a park that's decades old.

    I think you it's a bit to early. First of all the park isn't totally finished yet. Then we have the official opening and we'll have the opportunity to see the park at night (what I think will be a complete transformation).
    There is still a lot of food and drinks we don't know about and we haven't seen all the interactive elements.
    Give us another 2 weeks (at least) and 1000 pages :)

    Smiley face or not. Not cool.

    And again, your opinion is very much misinformed so.. :)

    So, are we to expect large rolling breakers from the wave pool? Right now it merely looks like pond or lake laps. I was expecting a bit more but perhaps, like everything else, I am speaking too soon...

    I think Volcano Bay looks amazing. We also still haven't seen star gazers cavern which looks to be AMAZING! And why the help are people complaining about Ride selection. This park has the best slide selection anywhere in the world. Each slide is completly different. And to those of you complaint about how the theming is a big Volcano plants and tikis, how is that any different than Pandora's floating mountains, plants, plants outside.

    But... I don't want my face to be one giant mouth.

    I wonder if this is the video they'll show in the bus on the way to the park.

    That is horrible customer service and an incredibly poor compensation. That sours my taste on the Cabanas considerably right now, I can definitely feel the disappointment on this one...

    I am surprised they cannot finish the remaining four cabanas within the next two weeks unless their vendors for woodwork etc aren't able to come through. Perhaps it is some other issue?
