This ride at Busch Gardens in Tampa was GREAT! My friend and I loved it. Martin Short is HILARIOUS as Akbar we were laughing through the whole thing. It was definitely worth the 30 minute wait.
To enjoy this, you really need to visit it before any other ride in Orlando. Fun the first time, the novelty soon wears thin and the jokes are truly dreadful. Poor old Martin Short, reduced to being a fairground attraction. If you want a competent simulation, try this. If you want the best go for Back To The Future and Spiderman at Universal.
Akbar is no longer at Busch Gardens Tampa, and that's a good thing, because it really was not worth the wait. Martin Short was funny, but it really was a shame that at one point in his career, such a funny man was stuck doing the movie for a motion simulator ride at a theme park. The ride wasn't fantastic, and with Montu (giant inverted Bolliger & Mabillard roller coaster) right next to it, I would have rather ridden Montu twice than Montu once and Akbar once. If you didn't get to go on this ride, don't worry about it. Travel over to Islands of Adventure, which isn't too far away, or Universal Studios, and ride Spiderman or Back To The Future: The Ride, for GOOD simulators. Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia, just got a fantastic new simulator, Corkscrew Hill, so maybe Busch Gardens Tampa will follow in its footstep and get something to replace poor old Akbar.
