I liked the original better and would like it to return; the current one is just ok....good to get out of the hot weather and enjoy some air conditioning. Now that Kodak is out, it would be nice if they utilized the exit area a bit better...hate to see all the wasted space.

Ok I'll probably get BANNED from the DIS for saying this but. . . .

I actually like this figment ride MORE than the original

There I said it!!!

I actually thought the original was kind of boring and just a bit odd. . . .

The Figment "improvement" debacle is classic "fixing something that isn't broken" mentality. The original was so incredibly complex and enjoyable. The current version a watered down version.

Figment I love. Figments current ride? Not so much. I like to think he's going through an awkward phase. I will continue to love him through it, and hopefully he will grow out of it

This is how we feel about it. The original was better, but it isn't bad now. I like the song they play through the ride.

As you can probably guess from my Dis Name, I love Figment!!! The original ride was the very first thing I rode on my first visit to Epcot. Because of that, Epcot is my favorite park and purple is my favorite color! Like many others, I miss the original ride, but accept the current version. My family always makes a point of riding several times on each trip.

Just for nostalgia's sake, a few random Figment photos. From his (okay, Figzilla's) meet and greet place:




Figzilla (as he's been called by other Dis posters):


A magazine cover from a long time ago:


The little Figment stuffie that goes on the trips with me:

figment version 1

The first version of the Figment ride ALWAYS had a line.. it was usually one of the first things we did when we got to EC, and the LAST ride -always... before we left EC. The first re-do was awful. It got TERRIBLE reviews, and the second re-do (the current ride) didn't do much better. At least it had Figment.

Imagination went from a solid D-Ticket to maybe a B-ticket. The Imagineers need to start over -update the ride with new ride tech and new and better stuff for the ride.
