  • Leota not floating?

    Was it our imagination, or is Leota not floating anymore in HM? I searched for a thread about this with no luck; hope I'm not overlapping.

      There was a thread not too long ago that mentioned Leota had stopped floating and I was really bummed. Some were saying she was, and some were saying she wasn't. If this is the case that she has not been floating, then I hope they don't let it go because it was/is a VERY impressive effect and added a lot to one of my favorite rides.

        Sometimes things break.

        And they're probably guaging to see if the internet community notices. Sadly, I did notice last time that it wasn't working, btu the next time I visited the park, it was working again! So maybe just it wasn't working?

          Isn't Leota a 101 effect?

            I forgot to mention this beforehand, but last night (7/18) around 9:00 p.m. Leota was securely resting rather than floating as well.

              I don't think her union rules let her float after 6pm

                  Cool; we didn't ride today (19th), so it is good to know she is floating again. BTW, what does a 101 effect mean?

                    Re: Leota not floating?

                    I think it means it's one of those effects that go "101" (breakdown) a lot. Effects like Madame Leota are pretty sophisticated, and if the slightest thing is off, it would have to be shut down because it would ruin the effect, the magic, the ride experience, and possibly do further damage to the object itself.

                    Am I right? Correct me if I'm wrong.

                      Well considering the projection has to be so accurate that you dont notice any movement of the face is considered very complicated to me. It is mathmatically programed to be 100 percent accurate and I believe if the video does not follow the ball correctly the face could potentially move on the ball itself making it obvious it is a projection. I believe if the motor screws up then the whole effect screws up.

                        I just returned from Disneyland and visited Haunted Mansion on Tuesday, July 19 at 11:30 p.m. Yes, Madame Leota was floating as she normally does.
                        Yes, I do LOVE Disney California Adventure. Disneyland is not so bad either ;-)

                          Thanks for the info - makes sense. I'm glad she is working again. And DisneyDaniel; sure enjoyed meeting you on Sunday. We'll be here thru next Sunday if there are any other meets planned.

                            Maybe she had to much of a hangover from the day before

                              She wasn't floating because she had one too many of the 50th cup cakes. The frosting on those things will make anyone stop floating.
