This.

You know, I think a lot of adults would be far better off if they listened to more children's music. Like this one:

Neon is ridiculously expensive. Thankfully the faux-neon flexible tubing that's been coming out recently looks better with every upgrade. They've been implementing it here and there around Vegas and you can only tell the difference if they're side-by-side. On its own you'd have no idea.

Reminds me of an accident that happened while I was on Carnival. We had a "Neon Drop" for the show Nightclub Express (used to be on 4 or 5 ships) that was a huge, solid theatre drop (backdrop that flies in and out) that was about 50' wide by 25' tall covered in various neon signs of famous nightclubs (Cotton Club, Rainbow Room, etc). During a refurb in dry dock they were replacing one of the fly cables and lost control of it. The loose cable fell from the winch height to the stage floor (about 60 feet) and sheared half of the neon off the face of the drop. $80,000 in damages. They replaced it with LED tubes you'd see in a dorm room. :lmao:

Disney has released a new poster for the Runaway Railway, over the net.
Looks like it's one of the 'scenes' we might be going through, in this attraction.

Rise of the Resistance has honestly been killing it the last few days. They're almost into backups before noon and the first backup is 63 which is semi-reasonable. Hopefully it's a good sign and not just blind luck for a few days. :lol:

Backup boarding groups are still available 40 minutes after opening on a Saturday. Woah.

I thought very hard about going today, too. The weather is a lot cooler today than it usually is around here.

The ride's fantastic performance has continued for the last few days. 4 straight days of at least 130 boarding groups called with no noticeable downtime. Hopefully this continues.

Meanwhile... in California

Does anyone know how many people are in each boarding group?
