The Seas with Nemo & Friends–the Ride
|January 9, 2013||Posted by Amanda Saye under EPCOT||
I like the ride itself. Basically, Nemo gets lost again and Marlin and Dory search for him while we help from our “clamobiles” (think Doombuggies but with an ocean theme). It’s a great way to get guests deep into the attraction and then have them explore the aquarium on their way out of it. But, I really think they could have named the ride something different than the pavilion. It’s confusing.
Secondly, the queue is ridiculously long. I suppose if there are a lot of people waiting, you’d need this kind of queue but this ride just doesn’t need it. They’ve also made almost the entire queue a permanent queue, meaning that it’s part of the architecture and couldn’t be shortened or redirected without tearing out walls or railing. So if there’s no line of people, you end up just zig zagging through this maze of railings when you really just want to start climbing over them. Walking through the queue takes almost as long as the ride.
