America the idea of a ride based around a film, or films is an idea that has
been used in quite a few places. In Europe it's a lot rarer. This ride is
themed as a trip around Hollywood, with the boat going around recreations of
the scenes and sets from famous films from the Golden Age
On riding it you realise this is
a great idea, and it's surprising that it hasn't been done more. Riding
around the various scenes is an enthralling experience. the models have all
been done on a good scale, creating a good sense of escapism. There's also
some nice touches of humour found in some of the scenes, this along with
good pace, with you passing many scenes means it's a ride where your
interest is unlikely to waver.
The only area where it's
slightly let down is a few of the models feel a little tatty. This though is
really only nitpicking. The feeling of nostalgia this ride
creates means these models don't feel out of place, or in any way spoil your
enjoyment of a great ride.
