Dracula's Castle Reimagined in 2̶0̶1̶8̶ 2020?

Drac's has to have low seated cars or you'll be able to touch the ceiling in the station which isn't OK. Low seated cars are always going to be somewhat harder to get in and out of even if they do replace them.

The ride's track delivers the power to the cars. The track is divided into different sections which are turned on and off to stop/start the cars at the ride entrance/exit. The border between the main ride track section and the unloading section is right at the exit door. A car on the main ride section won't hit the unload section and come to a stop quick enough to avoid hitting another car that's already in the unloading section. These collisions aren't safe enough by today's standards. There has been at least one lawsuit. The cars being hard to get out of certainly doesn't help, but they'll have to also alter the track to fix it even if they do get new cars.

I'm quite aware as to how the track system works on these rides. Another solution is to put another 'block' section immediately before the exit station that would stop the car if another one is still unloading. The point that I'm trying to make is these cars were put into service decades before the litigation happy society we have today. The exit is another lawsuit waiting to happen. They just are not going to be adequate for an attraction that'll need to handle a lot more people than it does now. Another problem I see is if they do expand the ride they're going to need more ride vehicles or space them even further apart which is really going to kill capacity.
