[QUOTE=JumpingJack;46902789]Here are some tips that I found at various sites. Please bear in mind that I've not yet been to USF/IOA so I don't know if all of these things are still in existence, or even what some of the surprises are, but perhaps others that know the parks well can chime in.

Production Central-
Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit- You have the opportunity to select a song for your ride. If you hold the Rip Ride Rockit logo down for 10 seconds, there are hidden bonus tracks to choose from."

This one is true. But it's more fun if you know what track number to push. Here's a link to the track numbers: http://attractionsmagazine.com/blog/...ockit-coaster/

Thanks for the link! I like some of those hidden songs a lot.

Sorry if someone has already mentioned this, but supposedly the airplane that is in the harbor at Royal Pacific was once rented and flown by Howard Hughes.

Awesome! I will be looking for them this weekend!!!!! but before I possibly get whiplash, can anyone confirm if the Kongfrontation tracks are still in the ceiling? I've read multiple articles about this and I would love to see them.

Not really a park secret, but the sick Triceratops in Jurassic Park 1 is located at the minature golf course over at Give Kids the World Village.

Water Slide

Not many people know this one... By E.T there is a playhut for kids. If you go in the very back there is a water slide that includes a raft!

Here's an article I did on some "secrets" of the Wizarding World.
http://blog.touringplans.com/2014/02...meade-village/

Other things to look for are the incredible Monster Book of Monsters in Dervish and Banges (along with Tom Riddle's diary and much more), Gilderoy Lockhart's book collection in one of the faux shops next to Ollivander's, and the Weasley's Ford Anglia from Chamber of Secrets film prop is used in the Dragon Challenge queue. There's so many things that you really need to keep "your head on a swivel" wherever you go!

it would be great if you started a new thread.
this one has many outdated items listed in it.

the darkside has really grown and changed since this thread started 9 years ago in sept 2005.

Here's some really cool ones from my visit last week on the Popeye ride there's a wimpy to go order door right before you encounter Bluto for the first time when you're underneath the second bridge!
and
on the men in black ride on the hat table there's a Cat in the Hat hat an obvious reference to Seuss Landing in IOA!!

Next year when I return I'll see if I can find more!!
BTW I loved finding some of these secrets my fav was the one in Port of Entry with the "see ya!" message!!
