    New Pirate Boats are in the Water

    The replacement for the replacement Pirate boats are in the water with guests in them this time round. Pretty much the same appearance but the seat backs are reportedly a bit different.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    We were on the attraction the day it reopened, and that was the first of only a few thing we noticed... there was not much else done but a quick sprucing up...

    Boy this attraction is a mess now on many levels. First FP+ has really taken its toll on an attraction that in years gone bye that had virtually no capacity problems. Often the standby queue is full all the way out to the outside queue areas, the new configuration inside sloshes back to the new switchback. Where the interior queues merge there are often only a dozen FP+ in the entire empty interior queue, resulting in forcing the standby queue outdoors. They fixed what wasn't broken and made a major mess of the more than adequate interior queues.

    The new boats are an issue. They continue to fill up with water and when guests start to disembark water sloshes over. The cast members have to removed water after each boat empties of guests before sending it up to the loading area.

    And some animatronics are missing, the projection onto the mist at the drop is malfunctioning so badly that you can't figure out what the projection is. They added lighting to highlight the new mermaids in the water, the problem is the lighting fixtures are very visible however the mermaids are not.

    Not a whole lot of changes...they do look lighter though.
