    Crush froze up on us!

    At the 4:00 Turtle Talk with Crush show yesterday, Crush talked to a few people and then froze up. The CM with the mic asked if he needed to call the Coast Guard, and Crush said yes. Apparently that was the signal to shut it down and everyone was asked to leave. It was definitely weird and because Crush is so lifelike, it was almost sort of disconcerting, like he was having a real health issue or something.

    Anyone know if this happens frequently?

    Like any computer program it's certainly entitled to a few glitches every once in a while. When I saw Crush last year he worked perfectly fine and was as talkative as ever.
    Please... put Guardians of the Galaxy in Tomorrowland.

    Wow...I've never heard of that happening before! I'm not sure if it happens that often or not (I've only seen it a few times), but I'm sure it's not that out of the ordinary since Crush (and everything you see from the "Human Tank") is computer generated. I kind of want to witness that myself now just to see what it looks like!

    On a side note, I hope Crush feels better soon!

    I've never seen it happen (locals, we go about once a month and see Crush every third time or so) and have never heard of it happening. That must have been weird!
    Pity too, last time we visited he had a lot of new dialogue... very funny
    we often joke about wanting to have to walk out of some of the attractions (just to have a peek behind-the-scenes) but never considered Crush ;-)
    That is one show I'm so interested in how it is done. You are right, the interaction with guests, expression and motion is so real!
    I wonder if we should send a "get well" card.
    Or some kelp tablets...

    That happened to me as well last summer. He got about halfway threw the show and then he just froze up, made a few jokes and then we were asked to escape threw the back doors, it only took two show time slots for them to get him working again.

    As most people know the voice of crush is provided by a human CM the program that runs crush is done from picking up his (the CMs) voice and also the CM telling the computer what to do. They probally just had to restart the program. (Next time Crush says "You so totally Rock!" respond back "Dude!")

    I've seen it happen before. It was just as described here. The show was just aborted as a result of the computer hang.

    My wife an I have an unhealthy attraction to that show; we see it on every visit to the parks. But we've only seen a hang once.

    That's what you get when you keep banging your noggin against another person constantly, Crush.

    Sounds like an interesting experience. Things like this tend to hic up every once and a while anyways.

    At least he didn't go all "blue screen of death" on everyone. That would probably ruin it for the kids for the rest of their lives.

    Computers are like fine cars. The older they get, the more cumbersome they become.
