    Indy CMs pranking a guest

    Last night, just before closing there were very few guests for IJA. When we were at the end and our jeep pulled in to the unloading area we were behind another jeep. When that jeep was filled up and sent on its way instead of bringing our jeep forward the CMs left us at a distance from the gates. They then called out to the young man that was sitting in the 'drivers seat' that we were stalled and he should give the jeep a little gas. The guest started looking around on the floor board for the gas pedal and the CMs kept calling out encouragement. "Pump the gas" "Jiggle the ignition key" etc. The guest is trying very hard to follow all of the instructions and other people in the jeep are giving him advice. Then the CMs bring the jeep forward suddenly, all the while saying to him what a great job he did. It wasn't until we were walking out the exit that somebody told him he had been pranked. He did not look too happy.

    I've seen that happen before recently... sometimes that's their way of keeping guests entertained during a long load cycle. I noticed the CMs counting down to themselves last time that happened.

    It happens quite often. It must been car #3. It happens when a jeep gets too close to another and the jeep has to stall for a while. We call it an overshoot. We have fun with the driver to keep the guests entertained. We are NOT trying to make fun of them nor the driver in anyway, but try and keep a little magic going while they are waiting for the jeep to reset.

    Hopefully most guests are in a good enough mood to have a sense of humor about it. I think its great but I guess someone might think they were being made fun of.

    Oh, I love it when CM's invent ways to entertain guests when the ride control system is doing it's thing. Never seen this one though. I'd love to sometime. Thanks for that insider tib-bit guys!

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Anyone else think this is more of a quirk than a prank? A prank would be more along the lines of CMs turning off all the lights and walking away so it seems like you are trapped there...or something like that.

    The story is funny none-the-less

    And I love it when the guests have a sense of humor and play along with the CM's at the same time! It just helps keep the magic alive! Its Disneyland! Its suspose to be fun and everyone is suspose to be happy! If you are lucky enough to get a CM trying to lighten up the situation and trying to entertain everyone, play along!!

    I'd love to see a CM at the end of the ride waiting with a spray bottle and a squeegee. As the car rolls up he has an astonished look on his face and shouts, "WHERE IS MY WINDSHIELD!!!"
