I’ve been told that SDSC now has over 60 new lights and led stripes all around the disco room and has 6 different program loops

They do realise the issues with the ride, right? It seems unusual that they're putting money into some lasers and light effects when the real issues are in the slowest parts of the rides where people are actually paying attention to the theming.

I’ve had some videos shared with me and it makes the disco room live up to its name. No smoke, but the amount of lighting effects and lasers makings this part of the ride awesome again. If they had simply added all of this and brought the original props back for the rides refurb it would have definitely been worth it. I highly recommend riding to just see this laser room

Hi All, for those that are wondering about Scooby all I can say is what an improvement. It's still not 100% but the new lighting effects are pretty good. So go down and check out the experience for yourselfs. 😀

Had a ride this afternoon, effects all worked in the lower part and the timing was correct 😱

the new lighting is a very welcome addition! 

Also had my first ride on WWF in a couple of years... the less said about that theming the better.  2/10 would be generous...

Hi @Brad2912

 

When you say lower part do you mean where most of the theming is? When I went on the ride this morning the projection monster screen was frozen. 

But if all the effects worked for you today that is good news and glad they working on getting it timed right as well.

Well now I’m somewhat exciting after the “blackout” run on Wednesday night. 

I was there and did that Wednesday too. I was confused, the 6 year old was super freaked out but I thought it was super interesting.

Just a few notes to add when going down the hills the lights no longer work and also before going down the final Hill that light that got brighter is no longer there .

Follows the theme with this ride full of technical issues, disappointing that since they relaunched it as next generation more often effects and screens don’t work as movie world planned for the ride.

I preferred the ride when the disco room was loud, with heaps of working lights and lasers

There were only ever lights on one of the two forwards drops in the ‘disco room’ and they are still there and working. 
 

As for the rest of the room the music is loud and there are a heap of lights in there. 
 

Perhaps go for a ride before talking the ride down.

Rode the ride on the 15th December only thing working on big room was lights on turn table no sound and music was quiet and no other lights were on. Rode during day and during white Christmas.

Maybe read the thread. 
It’s been pretty well stated on here the lighting on the ride was completely changed on the 20th. 
It’s the whole reason the thread exists 🤦‍♂️

I went on Scooby this morning to check out these new lighting effects. Wow. They are very good. Best I’ve seen them in years. No smoke, but the lighting makes up for it. And the box at the turntable has been adjusted so it is only on while a car is turning, so that you don’t see this bright box the entire ride. 
 

I also did notice some new theming elements, particularly around the swinging axes and at the evil laugh guy. The still very poor screens were timed right, but the graphics still really really let it down. The screen before the lift should just not be there. And the screens in the lift I found myself not being able to look at them because they really threw my balance off as the timing was all out. Awesome work MW with the disco room, but the ghost train part still needs some work.

On another note, the whole mystery inc gang is back in the park. For a couple years now it’s just been Scooby and Shaggy, but today I saw them all

@themagician I don't mind the ghost train part now but what definitely needs improvement is the room just before you go down the drop, personally think it looks very plain and really needs that uplift of more theming including bringing back Scooby Doo.

Do you mean the last little drop which has the large projection screen?

 

I agree a better effect to mask the drop should be put back here. The old lush tree theming was good in here and maybe something could be done along those lines.
