Earning My Ears
- Feb 16, 2001
My mom, best friend, and i(both 16) spent last week in melbourne and went to US, IOA, and Disney Quest while there. our day at US was great! and we ate at HRC(ask to sit at the bar if the wait is long we got taken right up!)but IOA was a different story! we went 4/13 and there were a ton of problems! we arrived around 11 which wasnt early enough but with an hour drive to get there it was early enough for us. we went around and almost all of the express passes were gone so we got the ones we could. we wanted to go on spiderman so we went and found the line to be 120 min. long. when we asked about single rider they said they had just closed it and to come back in 20 min. so we came back to find the ride to have broken down! so we decided to wait and this way we'd be first in line. we waited nearly an hour but it was worth it and we rode twice more. however the one time i was seated next to a man who rode the ride while talking on his cell phone. this made me very mad they didnt tell him to put it away as it was a distraction to everyone else! we then moved on to JP river adventure where when we went to get on found someone had gotten sick and they seemed rather annoyed when we informed them of this. we then proceeded to get stuck for a while at the bottom of the lift to take us up to the big drop. we then moved on and found problems on cat in the hat. where the rode continuously broke down with us on it. that nite my friend and i went to ride the hulk and had to wait in the hour line. which ended up being even longer becuase the ride broke but they never informed any of us of this. my mom told us when we got off and had we known this im not sure we would have wasted all that time in line for a broken ride. so for the least to say my second visit to IOA i was rather disappointed with. i found the people at universal and even disney quest alot more patient and friendly.
