Given the adverse conditions going in, that's a pretty impressive outcome for RTH. The absence of the station soundtrack and sexy robot lady's soothing, honeyed tones is a real shame, I'm confident that that has cost it a few notches in the final ranking. She's wonderful .
Was the onboard audio working though? Please tell me the onboard audio was working??
Yes, the onboard audio was indeed working
Other recent rides:
Indiana Jones and the Tempil of Peril: hateful. I waited like a penitent man (penitent - penitent) and then it dawned on me at the top of the lift hill… in Disneyland, **** coasters begin with an “I”
Casey Jones: “he’s coming down the track, with his pipe of crack… for a full evac?!” - sang in time to witnessing a breakdown.
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad: SPITE
Crush’s Coaster: it span and whizzed. Fun but like Peter Pan’s Flight, it’s absolutely not worth the silly stand-by queues it gets.
(Hyper)Space Mountain: not bad at all! Showing its age but saved by the vest restraints which meant no head banging. More thrilling and just all-round-better than expected. What a shame that it has a Star Wars overlay though, in that wonderful Jules Verne inspired building. It’s like playing ‘Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer’ throughout a beautiful arboretum (yes that has happened to me - although I probably should have foresaw that tragedy ahead of booking to go to a ‘find Rudolph’ Christmas event at Westonbirt )
Avengers: Flight Force: ****ing crap. This is unforgivable without vest restraints. Truly a waste of time. Knock this and Rock n’ Rollercoaster down. 0/10
Heidi the Ride - good fun, better than Kentucky Flyer.
Dragon - banging soundtrack, reminded me of the Catan App.
Yeah… we raided the power creds on this trip
