PODCAST: Mixed views on Disney Genie, new rides coming to Legoland and Aquatica and “Fear Factor Live” to close for good (Ep. 116)

From Disney Genie guest reaction to new rides coming to Legoland and Aquatica, Orlando Sentinel tourism reporters Dewayne Bevil and Katie Rice address a whole lot of floor in this episode of Theme Park Rangers. Disney World’s new planning provider Genie launched to combined reaction. Guests praised its concept, but scrutinized its value details and accessibility. Epcot’s Candlelight Processional is again for the 2021 holiday getaway season, and a partial listing of movie star narrators has been launched. Legoland Florida celebrated its 10th birthday with an announcement of a new attraction. The park will open up Pirate River Quest in 2022 as a nod back to Cypress Gardens, which operated listed here from 1936 to 2009. Aquatica, SeaWorld Orlando’s drinking water park, is making a new overall body slide. Reef Plunge will take the area of Dolphin Plunge and open in March. And at last, Universal Studios concept park is pulling the plug, forever, on “Fear Issue Dwell.”
