The Mighty Ducks probably are the best hockey movies out there and as a kid I found the movies to be quite enjoyable. For years they kind of slipped under the radar in my eyes, but they suddenly reappeared in my life in a gigantic arcade game combining hockey and pinball, with the latter of the two really drawing my attention. The whole concept of the attraction is neat with everyone playing all at once, but the attraction is seriously flawed in my opinion though.

Upon entering DisneyQuest and reaching the third floor, this is the first attraction you come across. One thing I can’t knock it for is that it’s visually appealing and quite intriguing with the massive screen and all of the chaos occurring on it. This attraction was always a walk-on while I was there, and at first I was wondering why since it looked like a good attraction, but boy was I wrong.

The whole goal of the attraction is definitely simple- rack up the most points of everyone to win. However, getting those points is where the real challenge lies since controlling your ball really is difficult to do. Well the ball was supposed to move just as I shifting my weight around, but unless I really leaned to one side, the ball really had a mind of its own in moving. Even after multiple rides (which I now regret), I still couldn’t control the blasted ball all that well. Not only was steering the ball a challenge, but the scoring system on this ride is definitely flawed and poorly thought out in my opinion. On one ride I scored 5 goals, while some little girl kept crashing into the bottom corner and going through a chute again and again and again and won. Wouldn’t you think that the main way to score points is scoring a goal? It should, but apparently that chute is worth way more and I didn’t discover that until after all my rides.

I really wanted to like this attraction, and believe me I really did, but it really was a horrible attraction. The control or lack there of, is non-existent for the most part and controlling the ball is an arduous workout even after multiple rides. Also, the ride is just so chaotic that occasionally it’s difficult to know which ball is yours, but then again that really wouldn’t make a difference on this attraction since I honestly believe I would do just as well as I did with my eyes open as I would with them closed. It’s certainly not worth waiting for, but others may want to give it a shot once to see if they have more success than I did. Interesting concept, but just it was poorly executed.

This ride was very fun, and took a lot of work. It is the oddest way to play a game ive ever seen. I see only one problem: if you got stuck in the bottom-right corner, you cant get out very easily or at all.

Not that great, you have to move a lot and the thing on the screen is hard to maneuver, so Ill pass this one up if there is a line.

This is a really stupid ride/game. The concept is easy enough, but the way you control it takes away everything for it. You really have no idea what is going on most of the time.

Overall a pretty entertaining game. It also, like many things there at DQ, can get very addictive. Its level of interactivity and competition really adds to its excitement.

This is one of the few rides i can say i hate .The concept is cool, but i got so lost on the screen. I came out tired also. So i give it a four.

I didnt like this ride at all. It was way to confusing I didnt understand the controls at all. I suppose if you played a few times you could get the hang of it, but you shouldnt have to ride a ride three times to be able to enjoy it. The only reason this gets a four and not a one is because there is never a wait, it gives you a good workout, I like the competition, and its fun just watching people trying to somehow move their ball past the goalie to score.

I seem to recall this ride was a perfect outlet for the hyper-glycemic folks under the age of 13. Any kids about to go into sugar-induced seizures would do well to harness that energy and play this game. Its hard to play to win, but when youre rocking on that much sweet stuff, its kinda secondary anyway. Not that I speak from personal experience. *Ahem*

I hate this one. I couldnt keep track of my puck. Not the most exciting. But slightly entertaining.

Its amusing just watching people play this; much shaking of the booty occurs. Im not totally sure how the scoring works, but it was fun just joining in on the mayhem.
