With all of the classic scenes reimagined including the Pie Factory, Frog Forest, and County Fair, this will be a journey like never experienced before!
I mean... whatever. I liked Voyage to the Iron Reef but it wasn't a must-ride either. I'm sort of expecting this to be the same type of thing (though you never know). I guess one advantage of having a ride that's almost entirely screens is that you can switch it up whenever you want so good for Knott's for keeping things fresh.

Same here. I liked Iron Reef, and didn't understand all the local hate, either.
