 Review of Ye Old Mill @ Playland Amusement Park

APPEARANCE: The Ye Old Mill looks fantastic as the windmill really adds to the rides appearance, especially at night with the lights on. Also, the station looks great with the water wheel, animatronics, and a map depicting where the ride takes place (complete with troll world, the water mill, ect.). I also really liked the look of the boats as they had a classic feel to them. Finally, Playland maintains this ride perfectly, as while the ride was originally built in 1929, its in excellent condition.

WAIT TIME: Walk On- This classic never has a line like many of Playlands rides. From what I have seen, Ye Old Mill has a very high capacity as Playland has a lot of boats. Also, Playland dispatches the boats relatively quickly.

RIDE: The Ye Old Mill certainly is an old classic that provides a one of a kind ride. Beginning the ride is a lift hill which was completely unexpected and following that were a series of long crawls down very dark and eerie tunnels that certainly add to the rides atmosphere and enhanced my ride. I especially liked the storm tunnel which was very cool and I got fairly wet from the mist. Also, there were some suprise encounters with trolls and even a dragon throughout the ride. At one point during the ride a troll squirted me with a water gun and I got a little wet. All the effects worked perfectly and the ride was exceptionally long (at least 6 minutes). Finally the Dragon Coaster rumbling overhead even added to the rides atmosphere.

FINAL VERDICT: The Ye Old Mill is a great classic that cant be missed. This easily is the best of Playlands dark rides and a unique dark ride that is one of the best I have been on.

I updated my Ye Old Mill review. I liked it much better this year because I wore my glasses on the ride and didnt miss some of the great scenes and effects like I did last year.
