E.T. Smell

Some friends were talking about the smell that's in the E.T. Ride. Apparently it's the "best smell ever" but they couldn't describe what it smelled like.

Anyone want to clue me in?

I've always thought it smelled a bit like moldy water.

It's in the queue when you are walking through the forest.

With the FOTL we didn't have time to smell the ... whatever. Walked right in and got on the bike! We'll have to slow down and take a sniff next time. (Or stay off-site and wait in line forever! )
