Well, let's see. I rode a brand new steel wild mouse at the Houston
LSR that is a near if not exact duplicate of Mulholland Madness. Fun
ride, but nothing great. I really don't like spinning swing rides,
either in a single swing or in a car (DCA has one of each). I always
thought parachute rides are sorta neat, but not too long of a ride
(DCA has two). I've never been too impressed with space shot rides,
except for the Big Shot (DCA has two.) I do LOVE Muppetvision 4-D,
but think that It's Tough To Be a Bug is inferior. I like most river
rapids rides, and the one at DCA is long, but not a whole lot
different than any of the others, even with the drop like in Kali
Let's see, that's damn near all the rides at DCA. California Soaring
sounds very cool and is a first of it's kind ride, so that is ONE
thing I don't know about the park. The Superstar Limo ride sounds
quite lame and I doubt will be anywhere near as good as Roger Rabbit.
Finally, the big coaster is very rampy, has one verticle loop, a
couple of LIM sections, and is a Vekoma. It should be very fun, but I
doubt it will mix up any top ten lists.
So, that's all the rides I believe. Let's not forget the farm
area!!!! I don't pay $45 to visit a farm. And of course the
previously mentioned carnival games just like the ones Walt never
wanted in his park In fact, as I'm sure you know, he made Disneyland
the exact opposite of the carny midways of the 50s because they
weren't family friendly.
As I said, DCA is far from impressive. It will be popular because of
the Disnoids, but it will not come even close to Disneyland in magic
