    What exactly IS Midway Mania?

    I've heard a lot about this ride, but nothing detailed. All I hear is about construction and where it will be. Can anyone describe in detail what this ride will be like or about? I know it's something to do with Toy Story.

    You points da flashlight at stuff and it looks like you can see through it like an xray, as it shows a projection only where you shine the light.

    Think of the F-Ray from Futurama.

    Re: What exactly IS Midway Mania?

    Will be set up as a series of Midway games but involving the Pixar characters. The x-ray gun is a part of it. From what I understand you'll ride in cars vaguely similar to Buzz that can spin, but will seat more people per car. Pass through the various midway games and try to get higher score than your vehicle-mates. Rumored to have some amazing new AA technology as well.

    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

    Re: What exactly IS Midway Mania?

    Basically, from what I have heard, it is a giant collection of empty rooms. Almost everything will be using this projected technology so the experience can easily change based on reviews/time of year. Sounds like they found a cool idea for an effect, and decided to base an entire attraction around it. I like the idea of being transported inside these midway games, but I would have done it sans Toy Story and more traditional elements with the newer technology used to accentuate the experience.

    Re: What exactly IS Midway Mania?

    I agree, the Toy Story theme seems kinda of lame. I would prefer something more Disney, or more California since in is in DCA.
