Crush Coaster!

Post by earningmyfins » Jul Tue 29, 2008 4:44 pm

I've never considered going to any parks outside America but now I'm considering it. I was browsing YouTube for Walt Disney Studios Paris and found Crush Coaster. It's kind of like the Living Seas With Nemo but 1000 times better. I'd rather have this ride than the one we have at Epcot. The one at Epcot has no thrill and left me kind of, hmm, bored. Here's a video:

Watch the whole video. It looks like so much fun. This probably the only reason I'd visit Walt Disney Studios in Paris. It looks too awesome to pass up. :lol:

this thread has been moved as it refers to an attraction that is not at WDW.

Looks pretty cool but not totally sure I "get" the seats that face backwards.

I still hear the rumblings of IRON ISLAND - A Roller Coaster theme park @ WDW - anyone else heard about this?

I just got excited seeing the seagulls there but I don't know if I'd ride this enough to like the attraction. I'd probably try it to see how it is.

This one spins, right? The theme looks great, but I'd be super sick afterward! I'll sit this one out, thanks.
Drop another coin in slot and I will tell you more.

I must confirm: Crush Coaster is absolutely fantastic!
I rode it twice backwards and once forward, and the sensation is very impressive. Backwards, you don't see so much things in the "dark ride" part, at the beginning, but it's the only way to see the shark in the lift. BTW, the major part of the ride is the coaster, and the carapace turns on itself, so you could be either forwards or backwards.
The only downside is the waiting time: I've never seen less than an hour of it, and during weekends and holidays it's generally 90 minutes… Fast passes tests had been made but it seemed to be worst than before, so it was abandoned.

Some plans of the ride had been posted on a now closed Website dedicated to Disneyland Paris, but I made a backup of them. Anyone interested?

the only thing is that there's always too much people in the queue.... 90 min very often
and they can't put fastpass because of technical reasons....

but it's nox my favorite ride!!!!

I have heard about this on the Disney Brit podcast and it does seem like the kind of thing that would make a good addition the WDW.
