I think rides that absolutely terrify children are great. The deeper the conflict, the happier the ending. This is one of the problems with the Mermaid ride... Ursula chuckles and shows off her curves, and then we see a cardboard cutout of her dying. It's too rushed, too soft. I remember crying after a number of attractions... and my mommy didn't complain at guest services. She understood that it's good story, good exposure. I also have an appreciation for rides that end in violent death, but I understand why those have waned over time. It's an odd conclusion. Still very disappointed to see StormRider at DisneySea get replaced. @Kira Nerys how does It's a Small World rank on the Charming Scale?
