What convention center is this taking place in? Is it the one by Universal or more towards the airport side?

The new Mac water tea-cups ride looks awesome. We need one of those here in Texas during the summer. Awesome new twist on a classic family ride.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I really hope that system works - shooting in between the bolt assemblies at 60+mph leaves no room for error - not even a micrometer.

Oh really? Not even a "micrometer", huh? Wow you must be an engineer to know this. Yeah, you know those REAL engineers at Rocky Mountain better re-check their math, because, geez...if they are even off by a "micrometer" there is going to be a HUGE problem!

I just got told. No shame.

Yes, I was assuming that the running wheels were the width of the gap between the bolt assemblies. Kind of ignorantly stupid in hindsight, and the micrometer assumption was a huge exaggeration.

My apologies if I sounded full of myself. I am no expert, I'm learning, and I've been learning that more than zero tolerance for error in engineering is unacceptable, especially in the design phase.

Pretty awesome update guys. It is weird seeing your footage and some photos in IAAPA? I think it's pretty awesome your footage gets all over the place. I'm being a total nerd right now but it's so awesome that you got to meet all those head honcho's of all the companies. You guys are so freaking lucky.

Seriously, I wish I had more money and more time off so I could go to an IAAPA. Although I might go to Comic Con before I go to IAAPA.

LOVING these updates! Can't wait for more (and video too when you finally get the chance... I'm a patient woman... to a point ;) ).

Seriously though, keep up the awesome work!

From these updates, I have come to the conclusion that at some point in my life I am going to IAAPA. Even if I have to take someone hostage just to get in :D

I do have one question though, assuming anyone has been at both: Would you rather attend IAAPA or Comic-Con, even though the only things they have in common are that companies showing off their products (new and old alike) to the media and public, the sheer enormity of both, and that they are held in select cities?
