This ride sounds like Soarin over NYC. Come on Universal Orlando, I had you so high on my pedestal. Enough of the 3D rides. I hope I'm wrong here and out of Kong, fast n furious or Jimmy we get one decent ride. I'm just not going to book a vacation to see more 3D screens. Besides, Universal had a great ride with Jimmy they advertised all last summer.
The Fallon ride is interesting, for some reason I wouldn't be surprised if this thing turns out to be more fun than people think it will be.
With no real details about the ride system all we can do at this point is speculate but wasn't there something a few years back at IAAPA that was essentially a stand up simulator? Where you stood on a platform that was on a motion base system of some sort? Looked like a cool concept at least, not sure how it would translate to this project but we'll see. Also, depending on what the actual ride is like, it seems like with the technology that exists these days that they could constantly update whatever the pre-show experience is with fresh new content from Fallon to keep it interesting.
Anyways, Twister was a cool attraction but, like Disaster, I honestly haven't been on it in years so hopefully whatever this Fallon project is will be fun replacement.
Great pictures! With all the focus on the Hulk refurb, I had completely forgotten about the King Kong ride.
The Twister ride I don't consider not a big loss, although doing the control room was quite fun. As for it's replacement I'll withold my judgement until we know some more details. Will be interesting to see if it will be "just another simulator" or if it will provide a more unique experience...
