The first half is great. Then it goes downhill quickly.
In the previous version, when you were spun around at the top and see the projection of Earth, the voice said "[...] our Spaceship Earth" and then there it was, the Earth, the beautiful music, etc.
Now the narrator is still rambling about the future and the music is not inspiring at all. It's not as dramatic as it once was.
And then the descent is pretty much down in complete darkness except for a few stars here and there so that, I guess, you concentrate on the screen. The cartoon will got old fast after a couple of rides. However, the scenery in the descent looks very temporary. It's just badly installed black fabric with a white star field. I'm hoping that something more impressive will go there.
It's like 2 people designed the ride. One who gets it and one who doesn't.
