Justice League: Battle for Metropolis to Debut in 2017 at SFGA

Recommended Posts

I finally got back to the park to try Justice League and if I had 1 word to describe this ride it would be amazing. The queue and ride itself made me feel like I left NJ and was transported to Orlando. I really thought it was on the same level of quality of what you would find at Universal. The mix of screens and actual props / animatronics was good too. Without having to think twice, it easily takes over as my favorite non coaster ride in the park (before it was a tie between Zumanjaro and Saw Mill Log Flume).

Also Tried it for the first time today with my six year old nephew, and it was amazing. The only two other dark Rides I have experienced are The Bah Humbug Ride and Resses Extreme Cup Challenge. I had low expectations for Justice League due to just graphics being mostly used, boy was I wrong. The Special Effects are amazing, the easy targets are great for the kids and it blew Hershey's Dark Ride out of the water. Only complaint was Operations, we wanted to sit together, the line started at the 45 Minute Sign, took about 32 Minutes, we stayed to the left for two or more and when we get up there, the Operator trys to split us up. So I Poliety tell him that we are not In the single rider line, he says sorry but we have to go on, so we have some back and forth with me telling him that I'm not splitting up with my six year old nephew and I wouldn't have waited a extra 10-15 minutes in the two or more line, Finally I ask for a supervisor and he concedes and puts us together. Really wish they open the path so you don't have to walk all the way around no more, the outside of the building looks awesome as well.

^ That's really too bad. Wish they would make the single-rider line start earlier. Half the time I see it, it's empty, which is a real waste of capacity. Considering they were building these rides from scratch, not sure why they couldn't design them with 4 seats to a row like almost everything else....

The vehicles are pre-designed products from Oceaneering - it's actually called the EVO 6 because of it's 6 seats, which is the cost-effective version of their larger EVOLUTION ride vehicles (7, 8, and 12 passenger options)

Wish they would let single rides use the flash pass entrance, and when they get to the station spilt into Flash Pass and Single Rider. Also wish they would have had Loading and unloading Separate and not together, also the station is very small compared to other Dark Rides.

I read a recent report of SFMM's that mentioned how a few of their effects are already only working half the time, and sometimes their vehicle audio isn't even on. And when I rode SFSL's, lots of the audio cues were off, and the last screen wasn't working at all.

 

So far, I've only had pretty picture-perfect experiences on our JL:BFM, and the only reports of issues I've heard are of minor defacement in the queue. I'm very grateful to the park for that, and I hope they keep it up!

It seems to me the whole loading/unloading/fast pass area could be reconfigured better for efficiency sake.  When I go with my wife, it seems like we get up close to the loading zone relatively quick, and then it takes way too long to get boarded from there.
