I was expecting some actual talking shi* about Spider-Man. Glad to see Baxter's admission that it is a great ride and a base point they're attempting to improve upon... but again, as mentioned in the actual article, it has been 9 years... C'mon Disney!

I'm just unconvinced that anyone at the helm even has a clue as to what a good new attraction would be.(Though I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with "The Mummy").I am amazed that Expedition Everest came about in such dismal creative times. It's nothing short of miraculous when you think of the fiascos like the "new tomorrowland" or as I say Ghost-Town-land.

I've never quite understand the appeal to Spiderman. I think it's an okay ride, but it's also one I am willing to pass up if the line is longer than 15 minutes and I don't have an express pass. After riding The Mummy at USF this last Halloween I think that has got to be the best dark ride right now in central Florida, even though it is usually considered a coaster. However, I realize based on most online forums I am in the minority, and as long as there is some ride out there that is prompting designers to make them bigger and better I'm okay with that.

Hopefully this supposed project will show up in the next couple of years.

I love Florida's Mummy, too, as well as Everest. But both those build on coaster technology. Men in Black comes close to what I'm looking for in an all-ages interactive attraction, but the theme needs to be more family-friendly. (I have high hopes for Midway Mania.) And I love to see creative, low-tech ideas such as Legoland's Fun Town Fire Academy. To me, those are the most innovative new attractions over the past decade. But we need more.

I am still waiting for a non-interactive dark ride that transports us to another world, that is lengthy, and that has the abilitiy to stay fresh and fun, exactly like Pirates and Haunted Mansion. The two best dark rides out there, in my opinion.

I'm hoping we get that with the Little Mermaid ride coming to DCA. *crosses fingers*

But, the only problem with Little Mermaid is it isn't a fresh new concept. It's a movie. Don't get me wrong I am extremely stoked for this ride, but when are we going to get something that has NOT been seen before, just like Pirates at that time.


Well, I can always hope.
