is one quibble with this ride that I want to get off my chest at the start.
Disney have a policy that you must take your bags and possessions on a ride
with you. This is at least manageable on most of their rides, where even
their looping coasters have somewhere you can secure your bags at your feet.
On this ride the cars are a lot more open, making it very difficult to
secure a bag,
you do have to concentrate on holding on to it. This is especially annoying
considering there is a large empty area you walk past in the queue and as
you exit that could be used for a bag storage counter.
aside this is a very good ride. It's a spinning coaster themed around a trip
through the East Australian Current in the film Finding Nemo. After the
you head inside to a dark ride style section, which is themed as an undersea
reef, with various characters from the film to watch out for. This section
culminates with a near miss with Bruce the Shark on the hill lift.
After this is
the main coaster section. The theming of this section does feel like a bit
of a let down. The truth is it's pretty good theming consisting of a
lightshow to recreate the effect of being underwater, and at almost
any other park I'd be very impressed. At a Disney park, compared to the
standards I've come to expect, this feels a little below par. A few models
of the turtles from the film would go a long way here to rectify this
situation. To be honest though this isn't to much of an issue as this ride
sets a great pace, creating a very exciting ride as you tear around it. This
is enhanced by being in a dark environment, giving a real sense of
danger about what your doing. Not just a great family coaster, but simple a
great coaster full stop.
