    Resort-wide facial tracking in development

    Whether or not big brother is actively working with local themed entertainment, big’s access to any of the information gathered (just like our banking, travel, medical, internet, communications, etc.) is merely a simple subpoena away.

    Resort-wide facial tracking in development

    Hmmm... Questions: Are turnstile-jumpers such a big problem at UO that the cost of tracking them down inside of the park is worthwhile? Aside from more serious things like safety issues or the drugs and alcohol (for minors) that tend to be more common at special events (e.g. guests can bring in...

    Jimmy Fallon Ride

    Perhaps sedati was indirectly referring to the noticeable differences between Dolby/dichroic glasses (wavelength multiplex visualization) and circular or linear polarization glasses (like RealD Cinema). The Dolby format is more expensive and is considered by many to produce a brighter and...

    diagon alley

    It depends on how interested you/they are in Harry Potter stuff. Kids generally have shorter attention spans, and it tends to be the older kids and adults who really appreciate all of the details and offerings of Diagon Alley, because they tend to have more of a source of reference with the...

    Halloween Horror Nights 2017 Official thread

    (no significant spoilers below, just some discussion on a few of the house elements) I also enjoyed The Shining very much, and I'm a fan of the film, but one of the things that threw me off (and I haven't seen this topic addressed by any of the HHN creatives yet) is the chronology/layout of the...

    Halloween Horror Nights 2017 Official thread

    Has anyone discussed how the FALLEN house entrance uses the FALLON ride entrance area? Pretty funny. :hilarious:

    Terminator 2 3D to close October 8th

    Cyber Image is still open and the interior of the store remains untouched. Some of the Terminator items that had sold out at attraction closing are back in stock, except for the notable "leather" jackets and "farewell" t-shirts.

    Terminator 2 3D to close October 8th

    Isn't the correct term "potterhead"? :cautious: The screen mechanics are shown starting at 4:00 min into the video:

    Refillable mugs have handles again!

    Uni removed the handles from the HHN edition freestyle mugs this year, and also reverted to the dome-shaped tops with the cheesy/flimsy strap-like handle over the top. I prefer last year's design. Regardless, the parks could always offer tumbler handles, like Tervis, that can be added/removed...

    Seven Dwarfs Mine Ride Projection?

    ...basically the same thing that you get with the animated Snapchat filters.

    From the OS: Gator drags child into Seven Seas Lagoon

    Are there any surveillance video cameras pointed toward the incident location? People tend to think that WDW has more security cameras than they actually have.

    Forbidden Journey Closed On 6/12/16

    Social media hashtag "wandsupforluis" today at Hogwarts.

    Forbidden Journey Closed On 6/12/16

    Forbidden Journey was closed last night, 6/12/16. Does anyone know whether this closure was related to the confirmed passing of UOR Team Member Luis Vielma, one of the innocent victims of yesterday's Orlando attack? JKR recently tweeted his photo; proudly wearing his Hogwarts uniform. I...

    Can they make a ride without screens?

    If I read your post correctly, the raptor you're referring to is not an AA.

    Can they make a ride without screens?

    I think that a Minions dark ride would have been very cute, and I'm sure that I would have loved it, but I was merely suggesting that animating them as practical effects/AAs would have had obvious limitations and it would have been impossible to have them do the things that they do in the...

    Can they make a ride without screens?

    This ongoing physical-vs-screen argument reminds me of the preference between practical effects and CGI effects in cinema. The preference between the two varies between filmmakers and between audiences. It seems to me that the common preference on both ends leans towards physical/practical...

    Skull Island: Reign of Kong from construction to opening

    Haha. Done. No hard feelings. Thank you. I just want to have a fresh experience when I go - which I hope is sooner rather than later.

    Skull Island: Reign of Kong from construction to opening

    As this thread title suggests, please "use spoiler tags." It sounds like you're describing a key moment in the plot of the attraction, and one that may be intended to be a "surprise" (just as it is in the similar examples that you provided). Being that the attraction isn't even officially...

    Halloween Horror Nights 26

    I'm disappointed to see such a dramatic price increase over the course of just one year. On the other hand, perhaps this will cut down on the number of people opting into the express option. If someone is going to purchase a ROF pass (or any multi-night pass), that implies they intend on going...
