Re: Disaster Transport Theme Changed
If I wasn't a Cedar Point regular, and if I didn't know the history of the ride, I would be so confused on what the ride's theme was! I mean, you walk in through an emergency exit, then you have the "Repair Bay" with flashing lights and rundown scenery. Then, you walk up these random blue stairs with absolutely no themeing. Afterward, you get loaded into your seat in this purple light, and go extremely slowly up a hill with dizzying rope lights, plunge into compete darkness, circle around some random claw looking thing, more complete darkness, and then fly past a few random mountains with a Domo doll propped in them, and then back to purple land to get unloaded. I won't be able to tell if the ride was just really crappy and worn down, or whoever created the ride and themeing was crazy...
I think they should either:
1.) Fix the ride correctly to make it an actual space adventure
2.) Change all the themeing to make it an actual dark ride
3.) Tear the thing down and build a new, better "Disaster Transport 2.0" That has good appeal from the inside AND the outside... And maybe save the iconic "12-E" section of the old building and place it on the new building. Just a thought
I know this thread is old, but I have to agree with this. I did my yearly trip to Cedar Point this past week and Disaster Transport is always part of our routine. As usual, no different from any other year, more stuff wasn't working - now I guess you don't even go into Alaska anymore? As that section is completely black.
Cedar Point needs to crap or get off the pot. This ride has SO much potential - however, it could also be tore down and have something else awesome put in it's place that might take advantage of the beach and lake view. I'm a fan of the ride, but either way, I'd be happy. It's almost painful to have to see it "suffer" another year. Either pump some money into this ride and refurb and upgrade it 100% or get rid of it. The entrance to that ride alone is a joke anymore. I'm really rooting for Disaster Transport 2.0 though. It could be the dark ride everyone wants, but still be a coaster.
