Thanks Smidgy, I definitely try to bring our readers into the action with us. I highly recommend Uni. I don't blame you for not wanting to navigate around. Depending on where you stay around DL, it's easy to get around, transportation is pretty much at your finger tips. I know Mike mentioned a shuttle or bus to Uni, and i think Danielle mentioned it as well. So there are options to get there.

I wouldn't doubt it.

I said Monday Universal Clothes in jest, but technically, when we start packing for our trips, T-Man will lay out his clothes and figure out what he will wear, day by day depending on which park we will be at, if we will end up on a ride that may get us wet, the weather forecast, etc. I blame it on him being an Aries.

I love Jeff Dunham. T-Man corrected me the other day, we've actually seen him 3 times live. His stuff never gets old. I will warn you, he does cuss a little, but i've seen all kinds of kids at his shows. This last time he was a little pricey, but as many times as we've seen him, we think it's worth the cost. You walk away holding your stomach because of how much you've laughed.

Gotta admit it's gotten to me a few times. I'm all relaxed and suddenly she's gasping like a semi's about to ram into us at 100PMH. I usually tell her to just keep her eyes closed.
That's probably what T-Man is thinking himself. I don't know if i really gasp so much as grab onto the door handle or start searching for something to hold on to, which drives him nuts. To him, the astigmatism or depth perception thing is no excuse.

I've heard of this zipper merging theory, but I can't see how it could work unless everybody's on the same page... and they never are.
Sometimes i wonder if everyone is on the same road nevermind the same page. I don't think people even bother to look in their rear view mirror when they merge.

I remember back in high school, we had a trip to Chicago for a Journalism training and our teacher was upset about one thing or another, his boyfriend was mad at him, we had a huge layover, by the time we got to Chicago it was like 8pm, so we had one of the students trying to give directions while reading the map, and we had the teacher fuming in the drivers seat, talking to himself. He's all the way in the left hand lane when the student tells him that his exit is coming up, everyone in the back of the van holds on as he just power merges through the freeway just barely making the exit and just barely missing taking out 10 cars in the process. Maybe that's why i'm so tense when others are driving...

That would have been awesome! I know that he was there personally for the re-opening of it all. But I don't know if he's ever gone back to do the tour in person. That would be interesting to see.

That's the spirit. No need to make everyone wait just because the child decided to go over board. The only hope is that the poor child doesn't wander off on it's own and end up in one of the sound stages. The next show you see may have your child wandering through the set.

Do you happen to know if Magic Mountain is in the neighborhood, ever been there?
Thanks for the new chapter, we are definately now shooting for next Oct. for our first Dizzy trip.

But first looking forward to meeting you and Bunny Boy next month, should be fun, never been kicked out of a Disney park before! Oh, and tell Mike I was able to pick up the Cherry Bombs after all, but how we get into the Hippo area undetected is still up to him.
I do not know about Magic Mountain. T-Man is always talking about it, but since I can only play "dumb wife" so many times in one trip, I didn't give him a chance to find it and book it too.

Although, if we do end up going to DL around the same time you do, which T-Man keeps talking about so he can chauffer you around like Mr. and Mrs. Daisy, you can be my guest and go with him, as I am sure he would be ecstatic to have a coaster buddy!

We are looking forward to meeting you and Smidgy too! Could the two of you at least give us a heads up so we can start walking out of the park before you get us banned too?

I think a taxi is about $200. A lot of the hotels around DL have Gray Line bus tours available. If you use them just for the ride (not the tour) it's about $35 per person. There's also a train/subway system that can get you from DL to Uni for cheap. Here's a link - http://socaltransport.org/tm_pub_start.php

Magic Mountain is pretty far from DL (60+ miles) and some of those miles are horrendous, traffic-wise. We just drove past MM today. I've never been inside, but DH has not had nice things to say about it. Quote from my BIL about the clientele - "I'd say the crowd turned ugly, but I believe they showed up here that way."

Interrupt away. Thanks for the info. It's good to know in case we ever go back and don't get a car. Sometimes with the prices of rentals now a days it's almost worth it to just get a taxi or take a shuttle.

I can see it now.

Now for your traffic report, -- "In an effort to revive her husband from what could have possibly been a heart attack but ended up being a panic attack, The wife started CPR only to find the husband responsive, so she smacked him unconscious. Unfortunately, this was all while they were on I-5 going to downtown L.A. and before the husband could take his foot off the accelerator. A 50 car pile up is causing some major slow downs at the moment, and we don't know when it will be completely cleared...Back to you in the studio!"

Danielle, I think Smidgy answered that perfectly. I just never thought they would now come after me. I mean, Newman we all knew had it coming...but little ol' me?

I am going to give a more in depth look at King Kong coming up.

Magic Mountain

I did look at Magic Mountain. It's about 62 miles from DL. According to Google Maps, it's about an hour and 15 minutes to drive there. Since I can't leap tall buildings in a single bound, and I can't fly, it will take some planning to get there. It is much further out than what Universal is. Universal is about 30 miles from DL. Since we were already doing a couple of long drives (not counting the long drive to/from LAX) to Universal and Sea World in San Diego, I didn't think Lady H would be up for a 3rd long drive. I would love to go and ride some of the coasters at Magic Mountain. Some I would probably be doing alone. The so called "Dumb Wife" I'm sure wouldn't be so dumb and try them. She could surprise me, but she would rather I rode with someone other than her.

Plus we were on a limited budget since we have WDW coming up in about a month. So financially we wouldn't have been able to squeeze it in.

King Kong

Apologies to you, it seems I wasn't as clear on my description of King Kong. And here I was priding myself on how well i was doing!

If you remember me telling you about how during the queue, they gave out 3D glasses before moving us over to another line for the actual tram. These 3D glasses would come in handy for the King Kong part of the tour.

Once you go into the "cave of darkness" , not to be confused with the "Cave of Wonder" or the "Batcave", the director of King Kong comes on the monitors to give us some insight as to how they made everything and then asks us politely to put our shiny new glasses on.

This is how King Kong comes alive. And it is as realistic as it can be, without having a 2000 pound Ape trying to jump on your tram. There are animatronics involved just like any 3D ride, to give the tram the effect that you are in the midst of what is going on. The tram will move, you can feel the thumps and crashes around you, it feels like the whole tram is being picked up by King Kong himself. You are basically pulled into Skull Island and saved by the mighty Kong.

T-man mentioned that there may have been more than one dinosaur that was after us, and as I think about it, it makes sense, because King Kong kept hurdling our tram from one side to the other to try to keep the bad Dino's from attacking.

It really was a fun experience, and the director was involved in the whole process to make sure that it was as close to the real thing as possible. Unfortunately, 3D Special effects, along with a non 3D camera, made for really horrible pictures, so I have none to show you.

I hope this clarifies it a little more. If I am missing anything i'm sure T-man can fill in the voids.

Ok, hang on a second there little "pop your bubble" girl, I'm looking for clarification on a taxi ride for two to the Uni studios, one way. It can't be 200 can it? Or were you quoteing a price to magic Mountain?

The taxi rate was on some travel website (tripadvisor maybe?), but the yellow cab site makes it look like that is round trip. Here's a link, I'll let you take it from there. http://www.yellowcab.com/rates/

I think the other part we were thinking of might be closer.. knot's berry farm? (no, I will not go on that ride with the swings 300 ft. up that the people got stuck in for about 4 hours... one couple, the wife had a fear of heights, and the hubby told her going on the rider would help. I think he';d dead now.....)

Well see? He was right! She's afraid of heights and doesn't want to go on high rides. Her husband talks her into it by telling her it will help. They get stuck. She kills him. Now nobody will ever force her on a high ride again. So it helped.

Well I can give you the whole schedule, but you're probably just interested in the days you are there.

12/2 - Animal Kingdom
12/3 - Universal Studios
12/4 - Disney Hollywood Studios

So, while i work on the next installment, I thought it would be fun to show you a little of what we saw in the special effects sound stage. If you remember, I told you a little about how they did some of the effects with the cars in The Fast and The Furious Tokyo Drift. This video is from that. I would however, like to warn you ahead of time, I believe we were very close to one of the speakers on the tram and so there is a lot of feedback on the video. It may be wise to turn your speakers down. Sorry about that! Just click on the link and it should take you to the video. Enjoy!
