I recently went on Gran Fiesta Tour with two of my friends who had never gone on before. One had seen the original River of Time and was commenting to the other about how that first ride was - that if she were Mexican, she would have complained.
Then Fiesta Tour started. Let me tell you, her mouth was agape during the whole ride. I forgot that this ride was supposed to represent a culture - and though I give that fact a minus in the podcast - during this ride, I realized how over-the-top ridiculous every scene is. A quote from my ridemate, "I am offended for all Mexican people."
If this ride was somewhere else - like Toontown, I think it would be okay. Here, though, it's more than a ride because it's representing a place and a people. Thoughts?
