    Hmmm! The physical scenes look charming and make brilliant use of the limited space, clearly. However, I just really dislike the Mack Media CGI. It feels tacky and mid-00s, and it's exemplified by that weird video dome sequence.

    Looks charming. No doubt their best "kiddy" dark ride. Obviously a few timing issues to sort out. And have to agree that the screen section at the end seems tacked on.

    I think this is a great addition, but I have to agree that some of the CGI is like a PS3 game’s graphics. The dome at the end would work far better in a trackless ride, whereas at the moment it looks clunky.

    The best bit though? Definitely the sign about not flashing the mermaids.

    I hope this encourages EP to create more rides of a similar ilk. Arthur is still a triumph and I think this will reach a similar, if slightly younger demographic.

    Assuming Pirates in Batavia opens next year as planned, that’ll be 3 new dark rides in 3 years for Europa. Very good to see the park improve their dark ride selection - even if 2 were consequences of the fire.

    Four in four years with Voletarium.

    A dark ride focus was needed. It was probably the park’s weakest aspect a few years ago.

    Agreed with what's been posted so far.

    The majority of the ride and queue area looks a delight. Some nice, modern effects. For a 'bonus' addition, we cannot complain. I'll certainly be interested to compare with the ATR 2020 project, which is of similar scale!

    Issues of note: clunky screen section and unsure how well this will tie in. Also, small footprint means you see scenes before you actually are meant to.

    Hopefully said issues will be ironed out.

    I'm riding next week so will post fuller feedback.

    Yay for EP opening a ride early!

    Charming ride. Throughput looks low.

    Throughput fine.

    We waited 25 from the door.
