On a scale from 1-10 what you rate Kracken on for intensity?
For Journey to Atlantis? Also whhat type of ride is Journey to Atlantis. Is it fast paced, big drops? Feed back please!

I rate Kraken a 10, but them I'm something of a coaster scaredycat.

Journey to Atlantis is a hybrid flume/coaster ride. It's a flume ride most of the way with a short coaster segment about two thirds of the way through before a big drop at the end (not as high as Jurassic park River Adventure at Universal's IOA). A fun ride. You WILL get wet!

I thought the second drop WAS the roller coaster element. Please clarify this for me.

The second drop is the roller coaster element.

Kraken is FANTASTIC!! It's different from the Hulk or DD, so it's hard to compare intensity. I'd give it an 8.

That's what I thought. Thanks you guys.

I have one more question on J2A.

I've ridden it 3 times while on vacation (once in 1999, once in 2000 and once this year) and I never manage to remember all of it. I have one question in particular about a quote on this ride. After the log flume, when you turn the corner to go to the minor "bump", Allura says something. I thought she was either saying "Leaving so soon? I think not!" or "Think you're leaving? I think not!" Are any of these right or is there another possibility? Please help me out.

Thanks.

I thought it was "Leaving so soon? I think not!" Then they play the soundtrack to "Beetlejuice."

was that before the outer incline? I thought they play the music as you enter the "shrine" or whatever at the top of the incline.

Also, does anyone have a really good photo of the entire backside of Journey to Atlantis or know a site where I can get a good back photo?

The "I don't think so" comes up when you go back up. The Beetlejuice music comes in the shrine.
