    Ever look backwards on a ride?

    Ever look backwards on a ride?

    I like to do this, just to see things work "behind the scenes"

    here are some examples:

    Indy Jones - When you enter 1 of the three chambers, look behind you and you'll see the the doors reset for the next ride vehicle.

    Haunted Mansion - At the grandfather clock, look behind you and you'll see the hand cutouts projected by a light.

    Snow White - At the mirror, look behind you and you'll see the witch reset back to the queen.

    how about u guys?

    I do these all the time!
    I also look back on the scene where the ball is supposed to chase you. Like right when the jeep "backs up"

    as you near the peek on splash mountain, and the ominous music is playing, there is a shadow projection on the left wall. Look back and you can see the light etc.

    And while there is no special feature to be seen, I sometimes like to hang back in the hall of paintings at the haunted mansion and wait for the next crowd to come down in the elevator.

    I tried looking back once on Big Thunder, many years ago. That's when I learned that looking backward on a roller coaster makes me very motion sick.

    Nope. But, my brother did on Indiana Jones at the beginning of the second lift and a magical voice came out of no where to remind him to keep his head facing forwards.

    I LOVE doing that! It gives the ride a whole new perspective.

    While it's not completely backwards, I immediately thought of "goat trick"!

    I always look over shoulder/roughly behind at the very last scene of Pinocchio, to see the physical model of the Blue Fairy (dark, tucked in a unlit room) - she appears via a Pepper's Ghost effect.

    I looked backwards on Radiator Springs Racers, and lots of the props in the ride are actually detailed in the back! Other than that I can't remember a ride that I always look backwards on, but I always look to the sides on Soarin and up on Tower of Terror.

    I completely forgot that I do this too!

    But of course! Not necessarily any particular place on any particular ride, but just in general looking around.
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

    On the Litttle Mermaid ride in the "Under the Sea" room, when you see Ariel Dancing, if you looked behind you you would find : Mr. Lymput.
    I think he has may have been removed. I could not find him last time...
