Interesting side note that most people miss is that Popeye is actually a mini land of Sweet Haven with it's own restaurant(albeit normally closed) Wimpy's and a children's play area along with a nicely themed walkway along the lagoon.
Even the best water ride in the world can't beat potter today
Would have been curious to see Popeye against Splash, curious if that was almost a matchup Mr. Niles
I haven't ridden Pooh, and I love Kilimanjaro. However, Pooh consistently gets rave reviews not only for a unique exterior and an incredibly detailed queue, but for the immersive theme and sophisticated ride system. Both rides take you to another world with impressive visuals, but Pooh has incorperated scenes from a sotry that never fails to impress. Kilimanjaro lacks the gaurunteed joy ride that Pooh offers. The time of day, the driver, and the whims of the animals can all affect the quality of the ride. Pooh is different in a good way each ride. I'd much rather ride Pooh, and I hope you would too.
But looks like FJ is going to go far in this
1. Which do I prefer, a high-tech dark ride or an average rapids ride?2. Which property am I more interested in, Harry Potter or Popeye?3. If I could only ride one or the other, which would I choose?
Harry Potter wins all three, so that's my vote. Given the incredible reception that attraction has, I'd be surprised if anything other than Journey to the Center of the Earth is able to dethrone it (although I personally think Harry Potter looks ever so slightly better than Journey).
