    Was the Chernabog Tower ever removed from Paradise Bay?

    Disneygeek posted a photo from 2/12/11 of the Chernabog Tower resting just under the surface of the lagoon. I've had cast members tell me it was removed from the bay. When I looked for it about a month ago, I did not see it. Can anyone confirm whether or not it was ever missing? If it was missing, maybe it being back means we will see appear in the show soon, perhaps not as chernabog, or perhaps included in a halloween/holiday layover.

    It's easiest to see by looking down from Mickey's Fun Wheel and it's easy to miss it from anywhere else. It would be a major effort to remove it while water is in the bay. It's highly unlikely (on the order of a snowball's chance in Hell) that they ever removed it. And recent pictures show the same old shape so it would still be a giant non-moving demon-like rib cage with wings.

    Or the scariest Christmas tree ever.

    So perhaps a silly question, but what is this Chernabog Tower? Was this an unused element for WOC?

    Thanks, I was going to ask the exact same thing.

    This is an old picture of the Chernabog tower taken during construction.
    It's not fully extended in this picture. It is underwater when fully retracted. They projected images on water spray coming from the ribs of the structure. It also can project on a mist screen at its head and two mist fans for its wings.

    It's too bad that they never got this to work. It would have been awesome and really made WOC over the top.

    Hmm, it would REALLY seem like a knock off of Fantasmic with Chernabog making a splashy debut.

    Are there any Walt Disney-era movies represented in WOC? Is it true Alice in Wonderland was removed? I remember when they first announced WOC they said there would be alot of Walt films shown in the show including Fantasia and Alice.

    Do you think that the finished product was going to be an animatronic? When I saw it I thought it was going to be a tower to push water effects even higher. I figured that the name just came from what it resembled when not in the show. I don't know, I look at it and can see what you see too now that I look at it.

    Oh and Ghostbuster626, I didn't see Alice, but I can't remember about Fantasia.

    The Chesire Cat from the cartoon Alice makes a quick appearence in the finale as a way to keep Alice in Wonderland in the show, so to speak. The Old Mill also has a scene with a remixed version of April Showers from Bambi (which is pretty awesome). I think theres a couple more in certain parts of the show. In the "So Close" segment, theres clips of Bambi, Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty in that part.

    Fast foward to 7:30 in this video and you'll see the tower in action towards the right of your screen. The tower was also equipped with flamers that was also used in hellfire.

    I read somewhere that the show is still programmed to use the tower and they could bring it up if they want.

    It's not that they didn't get it to work, it just didn't turn out how they imagined, so they just ditched it. It works perfectly fine and could show up at any show, they just don't want it to. But Steve has said they might add it back in eventually or use it in another WoC incarnation(Christmas tree maybe?)

    I don't see it. Where exactly am I supposed to look? The only tower I see is the one from the Golden Zephyr. If I look to the sides of it, all I see are the wires holding the vehicles.
