I think one of the most surprising result is that the best new feature was opening the paths in the Old Country and the Golden Kingdom - something that cost nothing to do.  It pulled in almost three times as many votes as the new Cyborg ride.  I guess it just goes to show that simple conveniences for customers really make a difference to guests.

It was a big help getting from El Toro to Kingda Ka- Next we get rid of the paintball building!!!

The sampling frame might be a little biased since we're all people that generally advocate for it to begin with, but that certainly doesn't change the fact that it is free.

No doubt, but it still is interesting to see something so seemingly insignificant whop a multi-million dollar attraction.  :tonofbricks:

The reopened Old Country and Golden Kingdom paths just make it so much easier to get around the park. I always felt getting from Plaza del Carnival to the Golden Kingdom was overly complicated, not to mention that the reopened pathways actually have shade!
