It’s a brave move, to take a ride that has consistently won awards, and change it considerably…I'm braced for the backlash here, but I just can't see this being anything but a cheap looking refurbishment.
Don't get me wrong, I would absolutely love to go in with such low expectations and be blown away, but I just can't envision it.
Maybe my skepticism comes from the fact that when Valhalla was originally designed, it was done so by industry leaders like Tecnifex & Attraction Services. Even the brilliant craftsmanship of the ride station which was done by the Russian carpenters. It all felt so intricate and pioneering.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but there are no large companies like that involved in the refurb, are there?
Valhalla was my favourite BPB ride, so I do hope I'm well off the mark here!
