We went on it first thing, just like always and there was no ride queue, trucks were only half full and it was just after park opening. Same circumstances as our last visit with regard to time of day, etc. Our driver was terrible. She tailgated the forward truck, stopped very little if at all, rarely slowed down and was really cranky. Everyone in the truck was disappointed. My daughter moved forward in her seat ever so slightly to adjust her jacket and she scolded her for not staying seated, which I did not appreciate, as it was not necessary, not true and embarrassing to her. She's 9 and very well behaved and didn't even know what she did. People were looking very sympathetically at her, so I knew I wasn't imagining the driver's ridiculousness. The lady behind leaned up and said "its ok, honey, she must've gotten out of bed cranky today!" The truck in front of us made stops seconds here and there and she was always on their tail to the point, where I wished for a seat belt! I could see those in forward truck looking back and shaking their heads at our driver.

Curious to see if anyone else has had this experience with KS at AK lately or, if she truly was just a cranky pants that day. I'm willing to give somebody a crank day every once in a while, but she was barking at us like we were idiots. The guy we had last year was so great, gave great information and trivia about all the animals and AK park in general. 15 seconds here or there wouldn't have mattered, since she was always having to stop for the vehicle in front of us anyway.

When we disembarked, I could tell the CM's at loading could see the look on our faces as if "they knew." Incidentally, upon arriving home, I received a very long, detailed survey about AK, so I'm wondering if there've been other complaints.

Glad to say that since it was 1st thing in the AM, we had ample time and opportunity to do things that made up the the lackluster KS...Festival of the Lion King, for one. What a great show! A little side story about a friend who had a 2 year old throw up on him (his kid) at Lion King and how they wisked him away, below...yes, below and take him in an electric car through a system of trails to First Aid. He said there were more people below AK than above.
Sorry you had a bad experience. We only ran into this right before they closed the ride, and we understood that one, but still it kind of ruined the experience. We had 2 white rhinos that were in our path and our CM was hilarious trying to get them to move and no one was paying attention to the lions where two females were fighting. Some one caught that and brought our attention to it.
Been to the world and been to the land.
