Are there real people inside the walk-around characters? If so, it seems like it would be incredibly difficult for them to move without falling down. They certainly do look amazing.

^I've always been impressed by stiltwalkers. Hell, I have trouble enough using a footstool to replace a lightbulb, must less walking around in enormous platform shoe while wearing a bunch of crazy gear and dealing with mobs of tourists.

They are costumes, so there is someone inside it.

These are amazing characters! I am so happy they got these!!

Wow. I was just at USH two days ago and the stand that sells the Energon was still being worked on.

Does anyone know if I can fill my HHN sipper cup with energon for $.99, or is it another price since it's a specialty drink?

I believe the $.99 cent refills is only on the day you purchase the sipper cup. I only saw Energon being sold in the souvenir cup specifically for the drink.

Can the Energon cup be used like the other souvenir cups around the park?

So has this ride been officially announced to open on the 25th? I'm asking because I'm planning a trip there on that day.
