We were one of the lucky ones to experience the ride on Opening Day, the pre-show adds alot and that initial reveal after the explosion is fantastic. Glad it's back.

I don’t mind the differing views on Runaway Railway because for every moment any car misses, there’s another that they get to see instead, and (in my opinion), no car misses the meat of the experience. Missing the pre-show really put a damper, though, so I’m glad that’s back.

That's terrible

You do lol. But the first cars leave the room before the audio finishes in some scenes!

I do say the same about Soarin. I disagree about journey into your imagination with figment, though. You get a great view of how bad that ride is from many angles.

This is such a great pre-show and it definitely adds to the overall experience of the ride. I forgot that this ride was just open for less than two weeks before the closures and nobody got to the see this pre-show until today.

You could same the same about Soarin or Journey into Imagination with Figment or, depending on your perspective, any roller coaster. I don’t think it’s defending it to sort out what the variance in ride quality by seating is.

Point being, I think it's ridiculous that any of you are defending a lazy slapped attraction with a "BuT WHicH ROw DiD yOu SIt In?" question. It shouldn't matter. Simple as that. The attraction is not that good as a result.

You were not faced with a bunch of random black unthemed walls for a long period of time if you sat in the back row, front car, or whatever. lol If you're referring to gangster vs cowboy scene, that has nothing to do with it being a trackless ride. That has to do with a show scene. (I know you didn't say all that, though. But still.)

Actually it did kind of matter for GMR

I wasn’t defending I was asking

I haven't been in this thread long, but I'm tired of this question. It really shouldn't matter. lol. It doesn't matter for ROTR. It didn't matter for Great Movie Ride. It doesn't matter for virtually every other ride. This is such a weird thing to defend the attraction. "Well next time, you should try to get another seat." Yikes. (I know you didn't say all that, though. But still.)

Were you in the first car of the train?

That was my initial gripe for sure. I also didn't like that there weren't enough physical props and that both the initial setup for Daisy's Dance Studio and the time spent in that scene takes entirely too long.
