Description And Comments
JAWS delivers five minutes of nonstop action, with the huge shark repeatedly attacking. A west Virginia woman, fresh from the Magic Kingdom, told us the shark is "about as pesky as that witch in Snow White." While the story is entirely predictable, the shark is fairly realistic and as big as a boxcar; but what makes the ride unique is its sense of journey. JAWS builds an amazing degree of suspense. It isn't just a cruise into the middle of a pond where a rubber fish assaults the boat interminably. Add inventive sets and powerful special effects, and you have a first-rate attraction.
JAWS is well designed to handle crowds. People on the boat's left side ted to get splashed more. If you have young children, consider switching off (see page xref).
Frightens young children; 51" minimum height requirement.
