  • Buzzing question about the Orange Stinger

    Whatever happened to the little things that made this already off-the-shelf ride somewhat unique? I remember that the swings used to look like bees, with bee heads on the bar that came in front of you. It made the attraction a lot more fun to ride- and to watch. Like you were riding on bees- or, if the bee heads weren't on, that you were the bee! I haven't seen those in use since 2001. And I distinctly remember reading about there bee-ing (no pun intended) orange scent pumped into the orange, a bit like Soarin'. As far as I know, that hasn't been done either. I wish DCA could have more attention to detail like Disneyland- or at least hold on to the ones it already has/had. Oh, and it would be great if the Orange Stinger didn't open later than the park does by an hour or two (another cost-cutting decision).

    The ride was attracting real bees ... so they had to stop the sounds, smells and change the cars.

        Heh, I guess if you miss the smell that much, you could just buy one of those Air Freshener Fans they sell with the Citrus scent and turn it on while you're on the ride. My grandmother bought one of those today, and I swear, the freshener liquid stuff smells exactly like the orange scent on the Orange Stinger/Soarin'. :lol:

          im never riding that ride again. With my luck+Eisner's detication to the parks, the one bolt that will come loose will be from my swing and ill die drowning tryingto escape that lagoon......imagine dieing in DCA. Prolly wouldnt even pay for your coffin. I'd rather die in Disneyland from a car flying off the track and only me hitting something reely hard. Beats dieing in DCA!

            That's a little harsh, isn't it?
            Well, I think you're crazy, I think you're crazy, I think you're crazy, just like me.
