Todays screen oriented youth are bored with that and want the excitement and reality that screens can simulate.
AA's are amusing the first time you see them, but screens almost automatically immerse them in the story and create a far more exciting and complete immersion.
some young kids enjoy them when they are younger which is why they should never get rid of them completely, but as they age their attention turns to other things.
You said only some young kids like them, but when they're older their attention turns. You have been arguing that AAs are only interesting to the older generations. Your only post that you say both, sounds like keep AAs in Fantasyland dark rides, but after that no one one cares. Not many, if any, are advocating no screens. We are advocating balance. If anything, you are the one dismissing the the rise of the resistance style ride that is AA heavy. If you want to say the parks need a good balance between all types of tech, I'm right there with you. But again, this idea that no one cares about AAs except some little kids isn't accurate.How are you getting that out of what I said? In fact, I mentioned that there should be both. I just flat out reject the reasoning that screens are an affront to nature. I still enjoy both and always will. I just hate to hear people advocating against not only a reasonable way of entertaining, but one that has been used in theme parks since Mission to the Moon in Disneyland in 1955.
Keep in mind, if you want to talk about the future, and the tech that will keep them on top for theme park rides. Rides that focus on screen based, could have the most trouble in the near future. VR is jumping at leaps and bounds. Why pay all that money to disney when I can actually step into the world I want to immerse myself in. VR gives you control of the screen environment and lets you interact with it. But what screens and VR can't do is put you in a physical environment. The human mind always knows it is looking at a screen, but a good AA and physical set is much more convincing.
