  • [Question] Is it me ....or? (Davy Jones in POTC)

    Did Davy Jones's Projector in POTC got updated recently? I noticed it was more clearer and better than last time? It felt like they updated the projector the same time that Fantasmic! got theirs. I noticed this during my new year's eve and day trip.

    I have no definitve answer for you, but last time I rode POTC I noticed how much clearer and sharper the image was, too.

        I noticed it too a couple of months ago. I thought it was new.

          With all the fog effects in there, does the lens get fogged up and dirty ever? I wonder if they just cleaned it, or replaced a bulb?

            I heard they cleaned the screen. ;-)
            When hinges creek in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls, Whenever candlelights flicker, where the air is deathly still, That is the time when ghosts are present practicing their terror with ghoulish delight.

            Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion!

              Exaclty what I was thinking. That effect is relatively new, I would think that they woul have used a decent projector from the start.

                So does the fog go all the way to the water now?

                  Back in Sept when we rode it we noticed that if they were dispatching the boats really quickly it didn't have time to make it back down to the water after the previous boat went through.

                  Or was the fogger actually having severe issues and not even making it down to head level?

                    Sorry to slip in, but I believe the screen is made from a system called WaterScrim or something of the sort. (Look familiar to this?)

                    Another company is Fogscreen. Although they call it "fog" it is really only water.

                    Atomized water ≠ theatrical fog



                    Sorry if the above post sounded know-it-all like.

                      Not at all... fog just makes sense where atomized water can confuse sometimes.. but yes... it isn't really fog. Which is why It doesn't leave a film on your glasses when you go through like real fog would.

                      In essence, the screen is like a giant humidifier.

                            Mr. Jones looked very nice last night.

                            I was also very surprised to see that they projected the skull and cross bones by the beach with the skeletons on the shore. I don't know if my attention to detail was off, but I've never noticed it before!

                              ^ The Davy Jones & Skull & crossbones looked clearer to me as well from my recent visits. Skull and crossbones moreso than DJ.
