It’s time to tear this stinker of an off-the-rack attraction out of this area of the park, and replace it with something actually designed by WDI.

Published: March 14, 2011 at 12:12 PMDisney has already once had to add safety features to this ride that were not built into it when a cast member was killed. That's not to say that accidents don't happen with rides fully engineered by WDI, and deaths don't occur, because they have in the past and they will in the future. But the safety quality standards of a ride that you can find at an amusement pier should be vastly improved or the ride should be passed over completely before being installed into a world class Disney Resort Park. It’s no secret that this attraction was installed on the cheap to help beef up the offerings at DAK, instead of going with the more expensive, WDI conceived alternative that this current attractions land was earmarked for.
