So I spent Friday night taking the walk of shame on Mystic due to the lap bar not locking. Thought about it and realized u had my wallet and phone in my front pocket. Ok moron, lap bar isn't gonna lock with that in there. Fast forward to Saturday and I got smart. Cargo pants. Thinking they're less bulky and nothing in my front pockets. Still no dice. I religiously rode mystic just 4 months ago during winterfest. Still wearing the same size clothing comfortably. So thinking what gives. Did something change with the restraints since December or is everyone just being nice to me. Lol. Either way, I'm going to be losing some weight but just curious.
Yeah I agree with Brent. I think what I dislike is how they removed the “grand” elements from the fountains, which I would consider to be the pedestals and the high shooting water. It might still be the same height now or even higher, but the little streams aren’t impressive. The water that used to come out of the fountains was substantial, now it’s tiny streams like in a mall. It reminds me of the fountain that used to be at Tri County Mall, if anyone remembers that.
I get the "they're not like they used to be" kinda thought...but a lot of people make these assumptions in their head of what it's going to be like and then they get let down when it's not how they thought it would be.
I think it’s more a case of people see there was so much potential in a “major renovation” that wasn’t met. There were design choices that seemed like lateral moves or down grades. For me it has nothing to do with “wanting the old back” but more seeing where it could’ve been better.
