Here's the glass 'coffin'...
I didn't realize that was a coffin. I always thought it was a badly lit treasure chest.
If I remember the movie correctly, there was quite a treasure in the chest.
There really wasn't any conflict with the bird's placement. He was located on the outside, facing Tortuga, literally acting as a 'barker'
Yeah but the idea is the fort that serves as the attraction facade is supposed to be the same fort you see in the ride, Why would there be a Barker Bird on that fort? It's also why in retrospect removing the original marquees actually makes sense.
That's honestly my biggest problem with the refurb. Arguments aside of whether or not the movie characters should be there, it completely takes me out of the ride when everybody calls him CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow. It's completely out of character for everyone in the movie; it is an actual, running joke that nobody calls him captain.
Indeed, The refurb did extensive damage to the premise of both the rides and the movies.
While I'm fine with having characters from the movies in ride, I'm not fine with how EVERY SINGLE PIRATE IS TALKING ABOUT JACK SPARROW. All the mystery of the pirates and why they're there is gone. If they had a few Jack Sparrow animatronics here and there, and maybe even just mention him once or twice, I'd be fine with it because it's not changing the premise of the entire ride.
Though there is the mystery of how the reason they are there makes any sense.
That would be amazing!
But completely inappropriate.
I got on pirates today. The mermaid is still singing but no Mermaid projectors.. also the ride broke down right before the drop. We had to exit the ride but I got this picture of the drop with the lights on.
It has been established that the Mermaid projectors have been removed.
That rockwork on the left needs work you can see the outline of where the talking skull used to be and his speaker is still there.
Why? Could th the idea be altered? Couldn't the story be altered to make more sense? It doesn't make sense in its current state to begin with.
The Jack Sparrow effect at Shanghai takes advantage of that very special ride system. Perfect timing is necessary. The speed of free-floating boats with varying loads is not consistent enough.
Yes, it could be reverted to its original state.
That's a fair point. If the ride is ever overhauled (which at some point it will) then it might make more sense then. That'll be very far into the future though.
Think VR goggles...
