Re: Avatar Land

Jim Cameron was at WDW yesterday for the opening of the World of Avatar. In my mind, Pandora is more in keeping with the Disney tradition than, say, Star Wars, Indiana Jones or Guardians of the...

Re: 1960s Video

'63 or '4? This was before the clock tower (ice-house) was built.

Re: SFOT 55 Years - What do you still have

I had one of the straw hats worn on the Riverboat, but my irresponsible sister, when I wasn't looking, donated it to Goodwill. Those were good hats, except, if you dropped one into the river, it...

Re: Opening the Park

In the early '60s, my mother and father were invited to Angus Wynne's country ranch for a cocktail party. They went, but were concerned, because they were tea-totalers, that there might not be...

Re: The Sidewinder

After all these years, I finally found at least one source that confirms it was Sidewynder with a Y, although there is still no photographic evidence. Before there was auto-correct, it seems...

Re: What was the official name of The Cave?

My pleasure, sharing, Twisted. Riding through the Cave back then was a major introduction for me to classical music. When I heard the harps playing, I just had to know what it was.

Yes, the barrel...

Re: What was the official name of The Cave?

I think that's probably the case. It was just a matter of bowing to public opinion. "When myth becomes legend, print the myth."

Re: What was the official name of The Cave?

From the beginning (1964,) and through the '60s, it was called simply, The Cave. The first sign, at its entrance, was painted on a sail and mast that stood just outside. (The ride had a partially...

Re: The Cave's Sprinkler System

Yes, I refer to the "blizzard," because that's what that added scene originally was. There were no animations in it, just an Arctic landscape with lots of "snow" and really COLD air-conditioning. It...

Re: The Cave's Sprinkler System

Just for the fun of it, here's the 1964 Cave sprinkler diagram and a ride schematic to the same scale. Note- the ride layout includes the "blizzard" extension, a loop in the trough near the exit,...

Re: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

Thanks for the link, Twisted.

The Hub was designed to accommodate the Swan Boats, which quickly proved to be a less-than-viable attraction. Ever since, they've been stuck with a big area of unused...

Re: Run-A-Way Mine Train working model

Thanks for the update. I can see they have altered the track layout between lifts 2 & 3 fairly radically from it's original run. Can't wait to see the completed model!

Re: Run-A-Way Mine Train working model

Yes, I rode it from the beginning. I wasn't even aware it had ever been altered. When did that happen? The zig-zag before lift 1 wasn't real fast, but it was real fun- one of my favorite parts of the...
