INTRO TRANSCRIPT

Welcome to Attraction Checklist.

Lights, camera action!  It’s time to head to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and enjoy the park’s iconic attraction, The Great Movie Ride!  Located in the Hollywood Boulevardd section of the park, the Great Movie Ride is described in the guide map in the following manner:  Journey into some of Hollywood’s most famous films.  This attraction is open to guests of any age and there are no height requirements.  Fastness plus is available for this attraction and the Thrill Level describes the ride as being Dark, Scary and a slow ride.

Before films starts rolling, here are five fast facts about The Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

1.  The 22 minute long Great Movie Ride is an opening day attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and officially began operation on May 1, 1989.

2.   The Great Movie Ride is unique in that, on busy days, guests will experience one of two ‘takeovers’ of their ride vehicle.  If the ride vehicle is stopped in the western section off the attraction, the vehicle will be taken over by an outlaw named Kate Durango or Kid Carson.  If the ride vehicle is stopped in the gangster section of the ride, it will be commandeered by a gangster named mugsy.  Both the Outlaws or the gangster will force the regular tour operator out of the vehicle and continue on as the vehicle’s operator until the surprise return of the car’s starting operator.

3. As the ride vehicle enters the Raiders of the Lost Ark segment of the attraction, keep as sharp eye on hyrogliphics on the walls of the room.  One panel has hyrogliphic figures of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck and another features star wars characters R2D2 and C3PO

4.  n the Casablanca scene, the front half of a real Lockheed Model 12 Electra Junior plane can be seen.  Imagineers didn’t just throw away the back half of the plane because it wasn’t needed.  You can see the back half of the plane if you head over to the Magic Kingdom where it can be spotted in the jungle of the Jungle Cruise Attraction. 

5.  In 2014, Turner Classic Movies became the sponsor of the Great Movie Ride and on May 29, 2015, the ride reopened with new on ride narration by TCM host Robert Osborne.  Rober Osborne passed away in 2017, but the attraction with his narration is what we will be listening to today.

Now it’s time to experience The Great Movie Ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  The main attraction audio we hear today will be the version where the gangster takes over the ride vehicle.  Ride audio from the attraction where the outlaw takes over the vehicle will be included the bonus audio available to the Saturday Morning Media Patreon Patrons who pledge at any level.  Stick around after the ride audio presented hear to hear my thoughts on this classic Walt Disney World attraction.  But for now, put on headphones because this is a binaural recording of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios attraction, The Great Movie Ride.

INTRO TRANSCRIPT

Welcome to Attraction Checklist.

This episode we are heading to Disney California Adventure for our first ever attraction double header as we ride two attractions in one episode! 

First we’ll attend a wild band concert on the Silly Symphony Swings.  Located in the Paradise Pier section of the park, the Silly Symphony Swings are described in the guide in the following manner:  Enjoy boardwalk fun at its swinging best.  The Thrill level describes the attraction accurately as a spinning ride and it does have a height requirement in that guests need to be 40” or taller to ride.

After the Silly Symphony Swings, we’re going to head over to the Jumping’ Jellyfish attraction.  Also located in Paradise Pier, this ride is described in the guide map in this way:  Drop down through a colorful forest of kelp.  The thrill level warns that this attraction features Small Drops and it also has the 40” or taller height requirement on it.

Before our feet leave the ground for these two attractions, here are five fast facts about the Silly Symphony Swings and Jumping Jellyfish.

1.  Jumping’ Jellyfish is a California Adventure opening day attraction, beginning operation on February 8, 2001.  Silly Symphony Swings officially opened on June 11, 2010, but it replaced a similar attraction called the Orange Stinger which was basically the same ride but enclosed in a giant orange.

2.   Silly Symphony Sings is themes to the 1935 cartoon, The Band Concert where Mickey conducts an orchestra during the middle of tornado.  When the ride opened in 2010, it coincided with the 75th anniversary of the cartoon!

3.  The mild Jumping’ Jellyfish attraction at California Adventure has a sister attraction, also named Jumping’ Jellyfish, at Tokyo DisneySea in Japan.  The version at Tokyo DisneySea opened a few month after it’s California counterpart on September 4, 2001.

4.  The two music pieces heard during your ride on Silly Symphony Swings are both by William Tell.  The soundtrack includes his famous Overture and his classic piece entitled The Storm

5. Though they do so in much different ways, both attractions lift riders 40 feet off the ground and both have a ride time of generally about a minute and thirty seconds.

With me today for this special double header is my friend John B. deHaas and after we ride we’ll discuss our thoughts on this classic Disneyland attraction.  If you have headphones, put them on now as this trip is a binaural recording.  And now let’s ride Silly Symphony Swings and Jumping’ Jellyfish at Disney California adventure.
