It's only fair to mention I'm told that the ride is looking very very good at the moment.

I didn't like it at night. I couldn't see anything passed right next to the ship. The ship is lit on the sides but if you don't look exactly at the moment you pass by the thing you missed it. That being said you can forget about getting any clear pictures at night as evident from my photos.

Way better at night... Just my little opinion though.

How is the cruise at night? We've always done it during the day, but I've heard mixed feelings about the cruise at night. Some say it's a completely different for the night element and highly recommend it, others say it's horrible because nothing is lit and you can't see anything. Curious how it is at night now after the refurb.

Unfortunately every time I went on it it was at night so I couldn't take decent pictures or video :( the temple does look great. To be honest everything from the props to animatronics and even the sound effects were improved on. I like the new monkey sound effect before entering the temple. Also the lions eating zebra scene had very noticeable updates sound effects. They must have repainted the spider webs because I've never seen them stand out. I think they also did something to the water like re dye it or something because it's was ridiculously foamy and visibly brown on the shwitzer falls. All animatronics were working flawlessly.

People on Twitter are raving about the new Temple lighting and how good all the audio animatronics move, but there is absolutely no video since the refurbishment.
