Times change. The first time we visited Epcot, I thought the touch screen interactive stuff in Innoventions were impressive. Nowadays I have a touch screen in my pocket and use one every day.
I only experienced it for the first time in 2014 and even then I thought the water tunnel didn't look that great.

It's a fantastic mix of nostalgia for those who have visited it for years and good old audience participation.

I'm glad they've not messed around with it - it really did need a refresh on the tech.

I love the water tunnel and it still amazes me how it works. Each to their own, I guess.

Mine you, I also used to like Ellen's Energy Adventure, Primeval Whirl and I still like It's a Small World. So I'm a bit 'unusual'.

I'm also surprised they haven't turned it into something Harry Potter themed. Perhaps some sort of wand duelling show.

I was dreading it becoming a Wizarding World / Fantastic Creatures type "thing". Fantasy has its place and Universal has thrived historically at the interactive movie type experience.

I'm still getting over Twister and Jaws going...

Or Fastpass+ (unless this is what you meant?).
