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.

I had a similar experience at HHN in 2004 at the Horror Nights Nightmares house. I was fine when I went in and then I got really dizzy and could hardly walk on my own. When I made it outside and sat down for a few minutes, I was fine. I don't know what happened.

We've been going to US since ET opened and we STILL talk about the "smell". We love it!!! It's sort of hard to describe, like the mountains, pine maybe, a little "earthy".

It feels and smells like a cool, musty basement to me, which I happen to love.
