I'.m torn between an 8 or 9 but the experience makes me boost the rating to a 9. The sound system works great and is synced up perfectly with the ride. Not the most thrilling B&M but made better by the overall theming/experience.
The fact the there were multiple versions of the saftey/instructional videos before the pre-show made the wait more bearable.
The pre-show is wonderful if you are a Zeppelin fan with unique inteviews and concert footage from ".The Song Remains the Same".. Yes, it may get boring after multiple rides so it will be interesting to see how HRP handles this in the future. My only complaint is the lack of air conditioning or fans in the pre-show rooms.
