So no one has posted about Mermaid opening with the updated black light and other paint upgrades? Weird.
I know what you mean. I really like the ride, and the improvements are welcomed just wish they would have plused the ride a little bit more from the start. TLM will always be one of my favorite movies.He is stuck on his stick... I hate how well you can see that btw.
I like that too.My favorite improvement is near the beginning where they added the fish in front of the "screen" port hole thing where Ariel & Flounder are at around 0:55.
I still enjoy the attraction for what it is. But for those clueless about it, the outside would definitely get my hopes up for something a lot more than what it offers inside the castle.
Yes.Does it still seem plasticky and cheap?
Yep. I agree the black lights were much better but I felt completely taken out of the ride.I rode Saturday night, and while the black lights were much better, you still see the walls and floor way too much. I kept looking down and going - well, there's the floor. I could get out now. Probably not even get run over.
All very valid points regarding the ride as a whole, except when it comes to Flotsam and Jetsam. They are intended to each have only one eye glowing, just as they appear in the film. Unless you mean that even the eye that should glow on one of them was burnt out, as in both eyes were not illuminated on one of the figures?Yes.
I was excited to see the ... refreshed? ... ride but it was still very meh to me. It looks better in the videos. I can still see the ugly ceiling. The show lights. It's just not very well done of a ride. I don't feel immersed at all. I can see the walls of the building ... I felt MORE taken out of the ride than I was before. It's still very plastic to me. The ending is, as always, lackluster (no one came off of it wowed and I even heard some remark about "that was the ending"). It's somewhat solid but could be much more than it is, even with the refurb, which, again, didn't leave me very impressed. It's WAY too bright in the ride now. I was so disappointed.
I was even disappointed with Ursula's section (didn't help the ride stopped, one of the eels had their eye not glowing, and I could see a huge black wall). Kiss The Girl remains the immersive part, IMO and the realistic hair makes a shockingly huge difference. I also dislike the descent "into the sea". Did that change? It wasn't for the better.
I feel more immersed when riding the one show scene with a bonus ending Seven Dwarfs Mine Train than I do the Little Mermaid.
