But the best park deaths are idiots crushed on the Monorail track or on the old People Mover (dubbed for awhile by employees as the the People Re-Mover).

And I think there's only one underground tunnel at D-land.

That was a really cool ride, and would scare the crap out of you. They altered it slightly to make it Stitch instead of a Alien/Creature from the Black Lagoon hybrid. It still scared the shit out of my 5 year old son, though.

I remember Mr. Toad's Wild Ride scaring me as a kid, and the Snow White ride, especially when the witch is trying to drop a giant gem on you as you go out. And I was always scared on the Peter Pan ride that I would drop something and it would be "gone" because it was a flight over every thing. I'm anxious to see the changes they made to the Haunted Mansion, as they said they've updated the ride a bit.

The "Shrunk" thing we avoided last time...there's some newer rides at Epcot like the Car Test Track, which is a REALLY cool quasi-ride/roller coaster. We might try to go again this year. I may see if I can rent this from Netflix. Thanks for the review.

I think Spaceship Earth is under renovation, as it was boarded up and closed last month. I hope they fix the awful plastic blue cars that rattle like snare drums against the back of your head if you're foolish enough to rest it on the headrest.
I hope they're updating the content, too, as the last time I rode, it was laughably out of date. "In the future, every home will have a computer!"

**dammit, wrong thread.

 

So, some details about the new Star Wars area at Disneyland have come to light (not when it's opening, which I was hoping to find out before I renewed season's passes). 

 

The new rides, one of which is a combination vehicle and walking combat experience against the First Order, the other one you pilot the M. Falcon, similarly to Star Tours, have a capacity of 1500 per hour.  That's 20-25% less than the Hot Springs Cars ride.  The ride that has a 2+ hour wait on SLOW days.

 

This is a mind-boggling decision.  We are going to see 3-5 hour waits for these rides on busy days.

Maybe we can get Richard Dickson to speed us to the front of the queues! It's all about who you know, eh Richard? *Wink wink*

I could maybe swing something at Universal, but my powers have no effect on the Mouse.

Pity.  I was looking for someone to gift with this crisp $100.00 bill in my hand after Star Wars Land opens.
