Flying Carpets of
To say that this attraction is a cheap and
last- minute, add- on, would be an understatement. It was quite clearly
intended for Adventureland in the other park, but was quickly themed and
dropped into the Studios instead.
The ride itself is an exact copy of
Aladdin's Flying Carpets at Walt Disney World, but it has not be
executed half as well. To make the ride fit with the theme, they have
popped the Genie on a director's chair, given him a megaphone, and made
him a film director. That's it. As the ride starts, you hear a brief
soundtrack of the Genie making a few throwaway comments such as,
"Lights, camera, action" during and after the ride.
What is worse, though, is the quality of the
area around the ride. The line for the ride runs behind the main
backdrop for the ride: this is a very poorly finished area with narrow
walkways and no theme at all.
If you look at the actual electrical work on
the ride (highlighted below), cables are simply tie- wrapped to beams
and electrical outlets and junction boxes are exposed everywhere. The
lot has been only spray painted.
Basically this is a cheap off- the- shelf
ride that has not been well- themed or implemented, the accountants
should be ashamed.
we'll take a look back towards the centre of the park,
where one of the main people movers (and what should be a headline
attraction) is located.
