Justice League Alien Invasion 3D The Ride - The Review

As I said in my last post, I got my first ride on Movie World's new Sally Corp dark ride shooter Justice League Alien Invasion 3D The Ride. I really enjoyed it! I was lucky enough to ride with my 9 year old nephew. He had no idea what to expect, so he was amazed. I have ridden the Buzz Lightyear ride at Magic Kingdom, so I had a good idea what it was like. While I tried to explain to my nephew, he really couldn't understand until we were in it. It is truly a one of a kind ride in Australia, and Movie World should be applauded for being so bold.

So knowing that I enjoyed the ride, here are a few criticisms of the ride.

Firstly, I'm sad about the removal of the Batman Adventure ride. It was a classic, and could easily been updated with a new ride film. I can only think that the cost of running it was to high to maintain that attraction.

Secondly, that is one of the worst attraction names I've ever heard. Too Long and confusing.

For me the pre-ride was mixed. The hall of justice looked cool but only as cool as Wayne Manor did before it. The preshow was good but hard to see and hear. Especially for little ones. Cyborg looked cool but my nephews didn't know who he was. If you were riding the ride without someone who new the story, it would be very confusing.

The ride itself was great. The practical elements worked better for me than the 3D screens, but none of it was bad. I thought the graphics could have been better, you definitely knew when you were at a screen. However, a couple of the other effects were impressive. Green Lantern towards the end was super cool. It was a lot of fun!

Overall I give it an 8.5 out of 10. It's an attraction Movie World sorely needed, after loosing batman and LTRR, but also a ride that their competitor wouldn't have had the balls to add. Movie World deserve credit for this addition and Sally Corp deserve praise for a world class ride.

Australia has so few rides with world class theming, it's a great day when you get to experience a new one!
