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 was a great way to cool off on a summer day. The last time I rode the Cave was in '69 or '70. Apparently, there were a lot of changes to the animations through the years that I never saw.
