    Sad I broke Indy :(

    Well sorta.
    So I was on it on Wednesday (Thunder Pole working... yay!) and at the end the ball wasn't rolling. Once we got to Indy at the end, and he did his thing, the EMV part of the car shut off, white strobes flashed near the bottom of the car, and it let off this middle-pitched tone.
    So what does that mean? Does it signal a malfunction in the car, or what?

    What it means is that it strobe. Part of the computer did not respond to the command of the jeep movment. So the jeep storbes and the Indy cast pull it off to fix it. It happens often but nothing to worrie about.

    Does the ball really roll or is it a projection?

    The ball does indeed roll forward. The ball has a bar going through the center of it to a hydralic on each side that pushes it forward.

    Aw, I miss Indy. Such a cool ride system. I used to try and simulate the ride when I was younger by using my little cousin, some broken concrete, and a wagon. (sometimes water was involved)

    **Spoiler**
    It might move forward to get into position of the lights but the main effect is that the walls move foward to make it seem like the boulder is rolling towards you. Just look at the floor in that room as you "back up," you'll notice that the jeep is not moving at all. And I was under the impression that the ball is turning on a treadmill type thingy.
