I'm using flying theatres aka 'soarin' attractions as an example - and from what I read these attractions get mostly negative reviews from enthusiasts in reviews etc. But it begs the answer 'why are they so popular' - and why there is sometimes a huge difference in what the general public like Via what an enthusiast likes! A similar case is vekoma SLCS' or boomerangs - I think they are vile and don't see the point in them - and with coaster enthusiasts they are mostly disliked/ just about tolerated - but why do so many places have them? (apart from budget I assume). Do you think its a case of expectations? and an enthusiast has much higher expectations than your average park attendee? Or do you thing that enthusiast go on so many rides..... they get jaded by experiences - BUT then a good experience would still be a good experience if you personally enjoyed something. Or do you think with things like soarin - being a non-coaster based attraction - obviously COASTER enthusiasts aren't going to be that fussed with such things? thoughts?
