    Def upkeep. LN2 fog and as you know theatrical fog is typically glycerine based which lubricates lungs for breathing. Also, I recall the giant fog machine broke early on, and if Epileptic seizures were too common from strobes, Everest and Flight of passage would be the worst offenders.

    When the fog and explosions are working correctly it's as good as any scene in any attraction in the world.

    When on my personal last rides for energy and movie ride... I couldn't help but think how both attractions used lots of AA's, low fog, and running water effects.

    @marni1971 Will this be an exact clone of The Ratatouille Ride in Paris or will there be some differences?

    Exact clone, as far as he was last told! There might be some tiny differences, but nothing really noticeable.

    It's a good sign to see a permit for new break rooms and offices because those are the main things taking up the Ratatouille plot aside from the F&W kiosks. It's also essential to daily operations, so once that move is made, they will be good to go forward.

    I am curious what "Statue Trailer" is. Maybe a typo?

    Is it possibly an entertainment break room trailer that was originally for the living statues in the pavilion and the name has simply stuck.

    I have a bad memory of being assaulted by one as a child after my family forced me to go out there and interact with it.

    Seriously: There were Living Statues in Epcot during the Arts Festival. Also, they seem to come and go at Disney Springs.

    and people loved them, it was a great show. They sure did do away with every bit of entertainment that people liked.

    I can't fault them for wanting to change things and keep things fresh. But they certainly haven't had as much success with many of the newer offerings.
