Carnaval Festival has been closed for around 3 months for a little refurbishment. There have been several changes made to the ride, and in my opinion it is looking really rather good!
Things have been mentioned in the past by various sources that some of the scenes were a little on the racist side of things. Whether they were or not, some of these scenes have now been altered, although in some cases only slightly! The African, Chinese and Japanese scenes have been changed slightly, and the pirate at the end of the ride has been removed to make way for Jokie and Jet. The Japanese man at the end of the ride is also looking slightly different and there are some general tidy-ups throughout the ride like the frogs at the start, who look a lot fresher. The music has been tweaked too (don’t worry it’s mostly the same stuck-in-your-head-all-day track!).
Here’s the video:
Oh, and remember when the vehicles stopped now and then? Well they still do, but now you get to have a little wiggle in your seat to a fanfare until it starts back up again! It makes stopping so much more exciting! 😁
In addition to the ride changes, the store at the end where you buy your on-ride photos is now called Confetti, and has been given a face-lift which looks much brighter and more in-keeping with the shop next door.
All in all, everything is looking great!
