  • Why was Light Magic such a failure?

    why was light magic such a failure? was it cause the lights always broke because I didn't think it was that bad. it could have been better but it wasnt horrbile to me. But I did hear that half the time the lights never even worked.

    I didn't know the lights didn't work.

    I just heard it was a flop because it lacked a good theme, storyline, or something? Or am I wrong?

      you can read a seven part article on JHM about it. Some of the parts are here:
      http://www.jimhillmedia.com/author.p...10&p=45&d=DESC

      The rest are on the page preceding it.
      You will find there the Western River Expedition series.

        Rule #1 of shows on streets: no stopping.

          Because it sucked.

            And if you MUST stop, do it where at least people can see what you are doing!!!

              I saw the video at VF and it did not suck. It was an excellent show that didn't get a chance to prove itself because it had huge shoes to fill that MSEP left behind. That and on opening night to the passholders, it just wasn't ready. Poor thing...

                do you think if they tried again they could get it right this time? not that they would but by reading the jim hill articles it just sounds like they were pretty much set a date they werent ready for. They probably have better technology to keep everything working now. maybe it could work at DCA.

                    I think the problem was is that they made too much of a "girly" show in that it wasn't meant for little boys. The "pixies" added to that affect. I thought the musical score was beautifully done, though.

                      For anybody who doesn't know, a video of Light Magic is now available at www.visionsfantastic.com - I thought it was pretty good- and I really wish I had the chance to see it!

                        I agree. If they would have left the pixies out and not had it stop for so long it would have been much better.

                          I thought the lighting, fibre optics, video screens were all the good about it... But the story line, the dead space, it just wasn't good enough... It wasn't a parade, at that's what people want, a night time parade! If they re-worked it, more floats, make it a new electical parade, like the cool new ones now a-days, it could become something!! But they can't use the name Light Magic... too many people know that name, and too many think it sucked... New name, new story, new floats, same use of technology!

                            I enjoyed the leprocon-style music. and I didnt think the parade was that bad(I was only like 9 when I saw it though) I think it just lacked a few things and it should have been lit up more. I thought it was too dark and glommy. pictures always truned out like crap.

                              Well it wasn't a parade, 4 huge stages, that stopped, and you watched pixies share pixie dust... it just wasn't disney standards...
