 Review of Mine of Lost Souls @ Canobie Lake Park
2 Rating Posted by: coaster05 on 8/11/2005 10:18:00 AM
APPEARANCE-7 Building looks great and the effects seem to be working. the sound for the first half was terrible and the two ride ops were very unfriendly. CAPACITY-6 They seemed to have enough cars but sometimes their would be 5-6 cars in the station before they would load other times just one car would be in the station and they would fill it.. They also wont let you wait on the platform to speed things up. RIDE QUALITY-6 I also am confused about the egyptian theme, but hey it does not have to be realistic, and the second half was much better then the front. Again I will mention poor sound during the first half. FUN-8 Good old fashioned dark ride. I have been on better and worse. RERIDE-8 I always like to try these twice just to see if they improve and this one was good enough to see again. OVERALL-35 AVG-7.0

The Egiption section was in storage at sally and they got it cheap. witha price tag already at of 6.5 million they needed to cut a few corners. I have mentioned everyone confusion of the section to the owners.

That animatronic outside that talks to you was 500,000 alone. keep in mind the 2D Ghost hunt cast 2 million.

I think everyone needs to shut up about the Egyptian theme. When I first started going on this ride, I never thought twice about it. Youve just gone, like, so deep into the mine that theres all sorts of whack stuff down there. And one should keep in mind that its just an amusement park ride. Also, this is the best dark ride out there that Ive been on. I dont know why people always have to dump on dark rides.

Yeah I really dumped on it by using the word "confused". It does not make sense, but I also said that part was better. A 7 is not dumping on a ride either.

I just dont understand why everyone gets SO up in arms about the Egyptian thing, but beyond that, your review was pretty comprehensive and fair.
It was the "6.5 million for this. seriously?" comment that made me question your general feelings on dark rides.

The voyage at Holidayworld is coming in for aroun 7 million so that is the reason for my comment.

I know the cost is suprising. Animatronics dont come cheap and then you have On site Corispondance and they dwsigned 3 rides for them to choose from. I dont thinkits as much the Egyption section that bothers me s that I found the scean weak compared to the rest of the ride.
