I agree, I don't get the hate. I almost was gonna skip it because I had heard such negative talk. I agree I don't love screens, but this was sort of a hybrid, and I really thought the Animatronic Kong at the end was superb. Considering Disney could never get the Yeti going I love this ride. That said, I got to ride it, and it did break down right after my wife rode it (kid swap) so maybe the break downs have to do with the ill feelings.
