They should have never done the beach ball thing, in the first place.
When I rode the original Flying Saucers back in 1963 (I was ten),
there were no beach balls or balloon-type things at all, around us.
And I keep remembering that tv special in 1965 on the 10th anny of DL,
included ballooons and stuff falling all around the Flying Saucer riders.
And yet, it had nothing to do with the regular running of the attraction!
It was just good old "bumper cars" in a
new style and physical way of doing it.
Which was at that time, fun
cool to do.
These people who are riding them now, should be learning that.
How to become Bumper Tiresss...
(EDIT to add: I have not ridden this new attration, and have 'heard/read' that they are a lot more cumbersome to navigate and direct, etc. So... the beach balls thing would/could really make it all the worse for maneuvering these things, hmm? Noted.)
