I always want to crawl up into the forest and take a nap under a tree when I'm in the line for E.T.

Yeah, but it'd be a rain forest here in FL if it were in the basement...

Nope, he's still there. I made an early morning run through E.T. last weekend, and he was up and talking. The smoke/fog effect around him wasn't functioning, but otherwise he seemed to be in normal mode.

I find it awesome how a smell can stick in your brain. I remember about 12 years ago when I went to Universal Studios and rode the King Kong ride. The queue smelled like the pink stuff medicine you may have gotten as a kid. It was great! But yes, the ET smell smells good to me too!

I don't know what the smell is in there, all I know is that I like it and if it wasn't for that smell it just wouldn't be the same.

Kong was another ride that had its own smell as someone mentioned above

You could also smell the bananas Kong was eating during each of the two close encounters (just like I remembered from Universal Hollywood in the 1980's)
