Kill: This was hard. I wanted to keep it in Animal Kingdom as much as I could. And I was going to kill one thing that is now extinct (seems kind of redundant but what can I say?) from the Animal Kingdom, it would be Tarzan Rocks. That show was just plain awful. Loud, obnoxious and inexplicably featuring roller skates (this is the jungle after all), I give it a big thumbs down. In fact, I think it was the worst thing ever at Animal Kingdom, with the possible exception of Bamboo and V the Velociraptor.
|why did they get rid of this for Tarzan Rocks?|
Refurb: I picked the Discovery River boats at DAK. This one is more missed opportunity than anything else. The original idea included an encounter with a kraken, a unicorn along the shore and a dragon cave with a dragon coming out to attack your boat. Instead, all the cool stuff was cut from the budget and all we got was a boat that slowly went in circles. A boat you could easily out walk. If we got the ride we were supposed to, it would have been so great, so refurb it and resurrect that idea.
Marry: Its time to leave the Animal Kingdom. And lets march on over to World Showcase. After yesterday's announcement, I know this will likely be a popular pick but I'm picking it anways. Maelstrom. My beloved Maelstrom. I still can't believe they are replacing it with a ridiculous Frozen attraction completely destroying the World Showcase's theme. Argh. I will miss Odin's Eye, that bizarrely proportioned polar bear, and the trolls. Cool trolls not those Frozen ones. And that quaint little fishing village at the end. Oh well, I will miss thee. And the protests....
