  • Having some fun on Soarin'

    There was a four way discussion on DLR on my train home tonight, and one gentlemen relayed what I think is an outstanding practical joke.

    The next time you're going to be going on Soarin', try to hide a golf ball in your pocket. When that scene comes up in Palm Beach over the golf course, reach into your pocket, and try to time raising your hand with the ball so that it looks as if you've caught the golf ball that went whizzing by your ear.

    Your fellow riders will undoubtedly be impressed.

    I've just got to try this next time!

    I always say during the opening river/kayak scene, "don't get your feet wet!" People laugh. Then again, I'm stupid.

        BUT....you better have a golf ball that has a Mickey Mouse on it. The ball coming at you in that scene does.
        Gawrsh !!

          Problem easily solved with a Sharpie.

          You know I just HAVE to try this trick now, especially since I've been doing magic tricks since I was 16 and know how to plam objects.

            I try to kick the kayakers heads.


            That is a genius idea about the golfball trick.

              Do that at WDW and people will be more impressed! lol. I cant beleive how good Soarin' is doing. Every video i watch of it people are like "thats soo beautiful, wow, oh my gosh!". And I rode it at dca and people were like. "Hey cool"...

              But It would be even funnier if you threw the golf ball at sombody when it whizzed by. Then they would be like, NOW THATS REALISM! (do it at WDW of coarse).

                      Palm Beach is in florida,the golf scene is PGA West in La Quinta,CA.Which is just 10 miles down the road from me.Just don't drop it,if it hits someone you might get sued.

                        :ot:...but related in a way. We were on ToT last Monday and this kid got caught "Floating" a coin in the elevator. Literally letting a quarter lose from his hands while we were weightless for a second in front of the cameras apparently in hopes it would be caught by the cameras. He was warned by the CM not to do it before the ride even started. The CM grabbed change right off the kid's knee and told him "Thanks for the tip and don't you DARE float anything in my elevator or your day here is over."

                        Now the kid was sitting behind me so I never actually saw him try his trick but the second that kid walked off the elevator he was pulled off by the CM who told him there was a picture of what he'd done and that the kid was off to see security. That if that coin had gotten loose in the ride it could have cause serious trouble or injury.

                        I got the impression, loud and clear, that Disney isn't too keen on practical jokes or slight of hand on Attractions while they're in motion.

                          I am stunned that they weren't more discreet about taking a child off to security.

                            A golf ball being flung at someone would get you in trouble. The coin trick? That's kind of cruel. Shoulda stuck with pennies though, not a quarter =D

                              He wasn't some 5 year old. The "Kid" was about 15 or 16, old enough to face the consequences of his actions. and it wasn't like the CM yelled "BUSTED you little <Insert invective of choice>!" as soon as the doors opened.

                              The teen was in the last row AND in a group. They were first on and last off. The CM held the whole group as they came off.

                              But the CM made it VERY clear before we even did the seat-belt check that he knew what this teen had in mind that the CM WOULD have him bounced if he let any coins loose in the ride during the ride. Which apparently the teen went ahead and did anyway. Want to be surprised at anyone be surprised at the adults in this group who didn't even bother to back up the CM on a safety issue that could have affected their own lives.

                              I was actually kind of glad to see a CM handling what he felt was a dangerous situation in a VERY professional manner. He was never rude. But he clearly felt the teen had crossed the line and put other guests at risk.

                              Go CM Eric, yanno.
