    Funny enough though, it kind of works considering it is a junk yard Makes the ride a tad bumpy though.

    i think that it is meant to be like that. so therefore i am not worried and i wouldn't worry that BVS is being neglected. Because if it was broken or a lightbulb was out they would have fixed it already(because it is Disney and they take care of their stuff ) so which tells me it's meant to be that way.

    It took me a minute to figure out what was wrong with Mater's. It doesn't bug me that much since it's a junkyard and all.

    Maters is being fixed as we speak its being resurfaced and about the neon they'll probably learn and make back ups of every sign for neon parts.

    It's a music Celebration
    Come on, come on, come on
    Strike up the band,
    Feel the beat, what a great sensation
    Come on, come on, come on
    Move and clap your hands,
    Get into the Spirit
    Let everyone hear it,
    So come on, come on

    why would they design like that. doesn't make sense. there are many things through out the resort that have fallen apart or broken that has taken a while before they fix it. The "O" in Toon Town sign. show effects on many attractions. maters. why would they design the Sign on BVS to been burnt out.

CM's on that ride tell me it'll be repaired in the "off season".
    Speaking from experience that floor epoxy is finicky. I've seen $100g spent on hangar floors and a month later the painters have to come in and replace half of it.

    because in a small town like they recreated, not everything is perfect and all the time fixed.but i was thinking of carsland.. not BVS...

    but still it takes a while to re order neon signs.

    maybe they didn't think the light would go out as fast. because the rest of the sign is okay...maybe something shorted. but custom neon signs like that take a while to make, so who knows!

    Re: Oswalds "S" out

    What surprised me is that BOTH S's went out. So one bulb lights up both letters? Didn't plan that one too well.
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".

    Re: Oswalds "S" out

    PoisonedApples has a good point. Of course someone would make it like that, at least it's a possibility. After designing an attraction to look perfect someone might look at it and say "It's nice, but not quite enough. We need to make it more authentic. Can we have the imagineers make one of the letters flash like it's going on and off, just like a vintage neon sign where the letters are going out?" I could bolster that theory by pointing out that a sign with a blinking object tends to attract more attention than ones that don't. In the event that the letter did flicker on and off, it just seems to be within Disney's theming that they might have had a speaker that makes a "Bzzzt! Bzzt-bzzt!" sound at the same pace of the letter going on and off. Just look at the Tower of Terror.

    Looking at the pic above? ....no, it just looks like the ballast that controls the voltage to the "S" is out, the gas-charged letters themselves are most likely okay.
    Your first, your last, your only defense against the scum of the ethereal plane.

    But.... it's supposed to be a "Junkyard"... it's part of the theme I tell you!
