Well that truck is most likely carrying helium to fill a really big balloon. So I think its there to fill something.

Oh I hope it's open next week, I'd love to go up in it with my grand-daughter. She is 4 and 1/2 and loves to watch the hot air ballons that go up around here. The balloon ride in DTD would be perfect for her, especially since I am afraid of going up in one that is not tethered.

That is great! We love characters in flight. Just a fun thing to do in DTD.

Hopefully it works better. We've tried a few times but it seems like the slightest breeze renders it unable to go up. We've never been successful getting a ride.

Excited, as we have never done this. We were hoping to do this next trip and were worried it wouldn't be back

Yeah I second this. Although I'm new around here I'm a Robo fan already.

I want to join in the Robo love! I look thru the threads here when I have downtime to try to help out those with questions. I'm no expert,but I do know enough to help a lot of the questions posted here. Whenever I see Robo (or a couple others that are also great) I know I don't need to help, but I always read the answer as it often helps me learn more too!

Robo, ever thought of making a thread of just your tips?
