I agree. And yes, I compared it because you previously commented that it offered way less than TDS.C'mon, Brian. You really want to compare SDL to TDS?!?!
You know it isn't a fair comparison to begin with as one park was a second gate. How about comparing SDL to TDL at opening?
And your categorizing attractions above is ... subjective at best. 20K is widely considered E caliber, while Sindbad may or may not be (I love it, but not the point). Raging Spirits also didn't open with the park. It was added later.
As to SDL ... Crystal Grotto is a C at best. It is a different (cheaper?) take on Storybook Land. But Soarin is considered an E in Anaheim and O-Town, so it should be there as well. The SDMT might qualify as a D, but Pan and Buzz are firmly C-Tix even in their plussed states. Things like the Canoes and Alice Maze would be in the B/C area. The Marvel and SW 'attractions' are only in name only. At the D23 Expo I spoke with multiple Imagineers on the project, the Americans talked them up like they were special (I knew they weren't, but I like toying with people) while the Chinese Imagineers were blunt saying things like "We don't have a Marvel attraction. Hong Kong will be getting one. Ours is an introduction and retail."
Again, I think SDL will be nice (at least until the locals trash it), but one must keep expectations in reality based terms.
The park needs significantly more attractions, which is why a Phase II is being planned as I type this.
My point really wasn't to get into a debate about the nitty gritty of 'what is what' in terms of ticketing. I actually WAS trying to be objective believe it or not. I like using the purpose the attraction serves (yes I much prefer 20k to Storm Rider) but 20k serves as a supporting act dark ride in its land. If I was being subjective I'd call it an E since I too agree it is amazing. It doesn't really matter, I was just listing attractions and frankly was quite generous to TDS (even gave them a bonus attraction for Raging Spirits - whoops!).
BUT - I think we both agree the park needs and is thankfully getting more. It's not worth either our time going back and forth about which is slightly better.
I'll be sure to give you my opinions either way in due course. I'm admittedly now uninformed as I'm avoiding all the videos now circulating. Your opinion on Voyage to the Crystal Grotto though... Wasn't that supposed to be the headliner?
