Storm Troopers!

The Storm Troopers on the top of the building is something that really impressed my husband, too! Every time he tells about our trip in May of 2004 he mentions that!

We loved the stormtroopers when we went in June, 2005. We were at the turnstyles early and it really made the wait for the park opening fun.

Are they there for later arrivals also?

PS - I have a 15-year-old who has begun listening to the podcast *every* Tuesday.

I've heard that they do this in the morning, just before rope drop, and once the gates are open they climb down.

I don't know when they came down, but we saw them before rope drop.
