It used to be good though. Sound effects, sets, and all. I would say it needs more of a major refurbishment than a gutting.
I’ve always thought the hiss of the LSM are almost the spirit of the forest beckoning us in with a loud screech. The first few times I rode it I didn’t realize it was the actual launch system making that sound entering the show building. The sound combined with the launch and the visuals from the props can be overwhelming, when they work, and when they do it’s a rather layered thematic moment that has been unfortunately greatly watered down. It’s clever in my opinion, even if this wasn’t the intent, and on the second launch a tire squeal does play briefly following the drop track.Verbolten show building sucks (and always had, just look at the post grumbling that the show building was a lame (and play the sound of a roaring engine to cover up the painful LSM screech)
This is objectively false. Whole panels of scenic have been removed since the ride opened—leaving unskinned light boxes hovering in the air and large sections of the event building left dark and unthemed. The light bleed through the building is also horrific now because of it.the effects still work like they did when the thing opened
When it opened yesterday morning, maybe.the effects still work like they did when the thing opened
