But it makes me appreciate Universal and Disney's theming. These other parks just don't have any warmth. And I'm not talking about the temperature.
I feel GOOD when I go to a Disney park. No, scratch that. GREAT!
This ride and others like it are fantastic and exciting, but I'll take Disneyland or Magic Kingdom over it any day.
And it is good customer service to bend the rules under certain conditions.
It looks like a puppet to me and not an animatronic...
She did ask. Then went to the media.
Nothing wrong with going to the media. Right?
But, yeah, the kiddies got Planet Snoopy last year. The "big kids" are due for something new. The I305 glow has faded considerably.
– The park indeed has confirmed that they are getting a B&M dive coasterBut nobody said it would be like the Kraken coaster in the video. Even more, management actually made a specific point it would be different from Kraken and it would be longer and have more like a real roller coaster lay-out.
- And.. I am curious as to why you'd call the Efteling "never-never land" ??
It answers the question: If everyone were to know that you did something, would you still do it?
The art of customer service is not mindlessly enforcing rules, it is thoughtfully breaking them.
And the "Never Never Land" is a childhood thing that I did and still find amusing to this day. I had always thought of the Netherlands as Neverland, and was amazed to find later in elementary school that Netherland actually is a real place.
Re: The editor's note. Makes me wonder if Universal is still playing chicken with Disney. If Disney still can't officially announce a Mine Train opening date, I wonder if Universal is postponing their live broadcast until after that time.
If Spiderman is getting such long lines in Paris, does Universal have anything specific planned with the launch of the new Spiderman movie? My understanding is they do not have to pay any additional royalties to Disney or Sony Pictures to promote Spiderman in their Florida parks.
And Helix just makes me happy!!
It does almost feel like Universal is playing chicken with Disney.
Universal should be fairly well convinced that their new expansion and rides should blow the pants off of a small family roller coaster (that could be having issues) at Disney. They are also being aimed at different age groups, Seven Dwarves is for the kids and Potter V2 is aimed at teens and adults.
I think both parks benefit from their new attractions, but Disney is not going to see the massive attendance increases that Universal will...so does it really matter what Universal does since they have the better attraction? No, not really other than to try and rain on Disney parade.
I wonder when Disney is going to move forward with their plans of building a park/land aimed at teens and adults? Until they do, they will continue to erode market share to Universal.
Who wants cheesy broccoli and beans with slivered almonds?
I'm still of the thought that Disney should turn Hollywood Studios into their "teens park". They already have Tower of Terror and Rockin Roller Coaster. All they need to do is a well-thought out and immersive Star Wars section and expand Pixar Place to include a Monsters Inc dark ride roller coaster, along the lines of RnRC or even Universal's Mummy.
No need for a fifth gate, though that would be pretty amazing.
That sounds actually pretty cute, I get it now, I wish our country was called the Neverlands.. that would be so cool!!
Nether in Netherlands actually stands for 'lower'.Since a big part of our country is actually beneath sea level, so it is a very fitting name.
'The Efteling' is very much one of the things most Dutch people are very proud of. It's vast and enchanting fairy tale forest and many elaborately decorated attractions , dense nature and sheer size of the place brings fairytale and legends to life in a way that very much fits the Dutch culture.
