    I'm guessing the Tiki Room, cause it's not my obvious answer

    I'm also guessing Tiki Room, just sounds right.

    Do you really have an answer?

    What about the AA technology used in the tiki room -- do you think that has gotten cheaper over time? After all, that AA technology was pioneered at the time the tiki room was built.

    Re: LIttle trivia question for ya....

    Well ......

    1. California Adventure is about 200 times larger....
    2. I would assume that daily upkeep is expensive assuming they so they daily upkeep.
    3. The technology for this mashine is not as repetative as Tiki Room's is.

    But Tiki Room is fairly compact with all the computers running the show under the house.... hummmm.....

    But I would have to say Tiki Room too. But....

    1. Actors Voices and contracts. --- Unles you want Carrot Top and Chuck Woolery.
    2. Those Dole Whips arn't cheap.
    3. Airconditioing in 2006???? Please! St Louis and Queens went dark for days due to this.....

    So what do you think?

    No... I have no idea but I posted it for discussion. I am confident that there are multiple Disneymanics that coudl figure out this question.

    seeing as a Coaster such as CA screamin' was made with current technology of it's time it was a quick construction....where as it is still not as cheap to create new animatronics and to voice cast record music and vocals, and most of all creating each animatronic.....that would constitute of more physical labor and more technology....and seeing as every time they make a new animatronic they need to find new technology....the Tiki rook gets my vote for a more expensive attraction t create

    Even with the cost of AAs going down...there are still alot of AAs to build for the show. However, that just includes the cost of the building...there is no ride system. I'd day the cost of the AAs plus mechanics and upgrades would cost roughly equal to that of California Screamin. Because why Disney and Intiamin did create a custom design...besides the wood plank themeing there is not much else to the ride.

    My guess would be closer to equal. Now say PoTC v Screamin: I'd go with PoTC easily.

    I always think of "Trivia Questions" as being about little known facts. Not subjects of speculation.

    Perhaps this thread should have been titled with "Trivial Question" instead?

    But now that I'm no longer confused about the Subject of this thread...California Screamin' would be much more expensive, IMHO.
