  • [Question] Is the Magic Carpet Ever Coming Back?

    For the past couple of weeks and months I've notice there is still no magic carpet in Aladin. Is it ever coming back? All cast members say is its under refurbishment. I know about what happen when it flipped. But its been over a year and still no magic carpet. Anyone know if it is really coming back?

    Given the amount of times the incident has occurred and the fact that the show may get replaced makes me think that it won't return. I don't think they want to take the risk of injuring the actors and creating bad show.

      I haven't seen that show in many years but what happened with it flipping? Did that happen during a show?

        I think that they are switching over to a no so magical throw rug.

                I don't think it is. As a matter of fact i believe it has been shredded. They are selling Alladin pins with pieces of the carpet in the pin. Just like the elephant statues they used to have that they destoyed and made into pins.

                  A CM told me they have been unable to replicate the accident, and until they can, they can't fix it and they can't get signed off on having it come back. It flipped over during the show, with the actors on it. Audience members were worried about the actors, but the crew couldn't get out the gear to get them down until the audience left so those who waited actually delayed getting them down.

                  I keep hoping it will come back. It's not the same without the carpet.

                    So they were upside down? I'm trying to get a mental picture of this. I wonder if there is anything on the web to search. But that sounds awful.

                      Yep. Upside down. It's why they wore safety harnesses. They were unnerved, but safe.

                        Indeed. It was actually on YouTube for a while (might still be) where you could clearly see the carpet flipped over. That said, I cannot condone the actions of whoever stopped to take this video instead of following the directions of the CM's and safely evacuating the building, delaying the process of rescuing the actors.

                          Not the best quality, but it shows it actually flipping. Most videos I've seen start after it's already flipped over.

                              Thank you for posting that video - I never got to see the carpet in action.
