The only problem I foresee with that golf course is stupid kids trying to hit the balls into passing cars... :?r

Yes, the new show has an updated version of Modern Plumbing and Drumbone. It also has the Gumballs and Marshmallows, Paint Drumming, the Feast, PVC IV, and many other "classics".

I was just thinking that, because you see it all the time at the boardwalks in N.J.

^Pee-O-V?

I've seen BMG in Vegas three times and each time they were a bit different (Once at the Luxor, twice at the Venetian), I love that keep updating the show (although I cannot eat twinkies anymore... ever...) and I'd love to catch this version of the show when I'm next out in Orlando!

I know more about donkeys than women!

I've never been to BMG due to this and that reason, but it looks really cool.

As a former self proclaimed Putt Putt grand master champion, I'm glad to see a new course opening! Something new to conquer here in town! Anyone up for a game? loser buys drinks at Cigarz! Holy cow... Putt putt that close to the bar, I see a lot of Putt Putt drinking games in the future!
Beer... It helps coasters go higher and faster!

Great video Robb, I'm surprised they let you take that much footage of a "new" show.

The show looks great, seems like they've kept a lot of the old classic bits and added some new high tech stuff, I can't wait to get down there and see it.

Did they still have the rotating carousel man statue thing in the front of the theater like before? That was always a cool scene, hope they kept it.

Edit: For anyone in the Orlando area still in school, the Blue Man Group offers an incredible student discount. If you go to box office in person the day of the show you can buy two tickets per college ID for that nights show for $34 a piece, kind of how a lot of theaters in NYC do their Rush tickets. The tickets are subject to availability of course, but i would like think that there would be plenty of tickets available for most week nights shows during the off season, check it out.

Trust me, so were we! But they encouraged us to take video, and you normally are not allowed to take video of the show. I didn't include everything "new" in the video as to not ruin all of the surprise, but I was honestly impressed with the whole ending bit! In person, it was kinda surreal.
