The original version of this ride was great! It had beautiful animatronics, scenery, and music. The characters were lovable and memorable. And the ride overall was brilliant! Now it sucks!! The current version of his ride is boring, dark as short! Barely any animatronics, barely any scenery, and a boring theme! Dr. Nigel Channing is a HORRIBLE replacement for Dreamfinder and the ride is now about the senses! What?! Isn't it supposed to be about Imagination?! Disney made a huge mistake in changing this ride! I hope Disney brings back the original version of this ride soon because this version is a disgrace to Figment fans worldwide! What a horrendous replacement! Watch a video of the original version and then ride the new version! You'll see exactly what I'm talking about! I suggest to please go to customer relations and to tell them how much this version sucks and how much you'd like the original version back.
It is just a very bad ride, the worst dark ride on WDW property. First off it is boring. Figment is not funny and quite irritable. There is a very disgusting and unneeded skunk smell. And finally it is a shadow of the original Imagination ride which had the Dreamfinder.
Well I'm giving this a 7/10.
I do love Figment a lot but after watching the original 80s version. I feel like that today Disney should do something to make it back to the 80s version once again. From what I heard in the original ride, the way that the track was set with the cars settings seemed a bit off and had technical difficulties causing it to be renovated (again I don't know, I just heard about it) so if that was the case, I can see Disney trying to solve it now and days since this is the future with broader technology and possibly many people to figure this out. If they do bring the original back hopefully, I guaranteed there will be more positive feedback on the ride as well over hundreds to thousands of people REALLY want it back to its original version.
I would love to ride on the original version, seeing the murals on the walls of Figment while waiting on the line and especially meeting Dreamfinder and Figment together at the end of the ride, even going through the original imageworks and venture around there. I am sure just seeing all that will bring a huge chunk of the audience back wanting to ride it twice as much.
So in conclusion, today's ride is alright but not as good as the 80s version. Disney if you could listen to me and as well as several hundred to thousands of others... Please bring the original version back. This is what the audience want back, Dreamfinder and how the ride used to be from back then. Back in the 80s it showed everyone of imagination a lot better than its current version today.
I don't understand why Disney got rid of such a wonderful ride. I was disappointed at a returning trip to epcot to see they got ride of the original ride in imagination for a dull, almost cheap seeming replacement.
