    I would rather go through Stitch’s Great Mistake 5 times in a row then experience this again. What a dog. Now excuse me, I must apologize to my dog.

    • Gullywhumper

      I hope your dog took the apology well! LOL!

    That was the worst show. Really terrible.

    But thank you for reminding us Werner!

    You know, there was nothing wrong with the Monster Sound Show…Nothing! I loved that show as much as I hated Sounds Dangerous….and thats a lot!

    I’ll never understand why they killed the Monster Sound show. Yes, it required a couple of talented cast members to run it, but they waste cast members just like that on the backstage tour to this day. I loved that show, and was totally embarrassed when I took some friend to see Sounds Dangerous, thinking it would be just like Monster Sound Show with a new film, only to find this waste of time and space.

    It wasn’t just bad, it was embarrasing. Good riddance.

    It wasn’t just bad, it was embarrasing.

    From the ridiculously out-dated pre-show trivia (about such hit ABC shows as The Practice and Spin City – could they not have updated this simple text-based element?) to the headphones that looked like something that would come with a $10 walkman, the attraction (and I cringe to call it an attraction) was terrible.

    Ah yes, good old Sounds Monotonous.
    I remember visiting it for the first (and last) time soon after it opened. When the show was over, I turned to my wife and said “Thats it? Really? How can they call this an attraction?” I was dumbfounded that Disney would try to foist off something like this on its guests. I’m sorry, but surround sound, not matter how well it is executed, does not an attraction make.

    Ever since then I have been expecting them to use this facility for something more entertaining, but it has never happened. Its a very nice auditorium and it has a great location in the park. You’d think they would try to do something it. Hopefully, competition with Universal heats up, they will find a reason to put a new attraction in this building.

    I never experienced this attraction but there is no one I would rather NOT sit in the dark with than Drew Carey.

  • buzzyfan

    My god,this was terrible,I just watched it on youtube it’s REALLY boring, I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be funny,but,if it is, they certainly failed to be so.

    By now I thought that at least one brave soul would have admitted that this was their favorite attraction ever. Guess we found something that folks hate even more than Stitch and Innoventions.

  • holierthanthoutx

    Yeah, I visited this attraction exactly twice. Once when it was fairly new, when we didn’t know what it was — we were expecting an update of the Monster Sound Show, but the joke was on us! And a second time in maybe 2006 or 2007, just to see if it was as awful as we remembered.

    It was as awful as we remembered. Honestly, I think it might have been worse the second time, because the sense of anticipation was gone.

  • http://micechat.com Dusty Sage

    The more I think about it, Stitch really suffers from the same problem. The whole idea of keeping an audience in the dark and mainly just talking to them and playing sounds really doesn’t work as a theme park concept.

  • ralfrick

    And what I consider the worst attraction I’ve ever experienced at DL was Superstar Limo, which also featured……Drew Carey.

    • http://micechat.com Dusty Sage

      LOL, so true, so true!

  • danyoung

    I experienced this “attraction” twice – the second time just to see if it was as bad as I remembered from the first time (yep, it was!). Especially after the wonderful Monster Sound Show, this turkey was an incredible letdown. Good riddance!!!
