    The drawings look well-executed...but this project is just so completely awful. It's entirely inappropriate for the location, and makes no sense architecturally. It's worse than the setting for either of the two GOTG attractions, which really says a lot

    I really don't understand the need for a bigger castle, but apparently bigger means better for Chinese. However, I'm curious how it will turn out in reality.

    Interesting. In HKDL's relatively modest roster of attractions, there are already 2 major coasters and they tend to have some of the shortest waits in the park. While this seems more creative than anything we've seen for Frozen so far, it seems like an odd addition to this park

    The trackless sleigh flat ride also seemed a little strange, considering that Mystic Manor (the best trackless attraction in the world, by some accounts) would be a short walk away. Without any show scenes or anything of real interest, a flat ride would seem especially silly so close to a fully-themed dark ride using the same basic technology

    It also looks like there were some other minor changes to the artwork, including another mountain to surround the ice castle, additional ODV space, and a frozen fountain in the town square (not a fan of that element, myself). Given how little the artwork changes between the two renderings, I have to wonder if this coaster was always part of the plan, and it simply got added back in at some point. Rollercoasters are based on the old Russian ice slides, so the ride system makes sense from the most primitive level
