    Cool What's up with the Imagineering in front of California Screamin'?

    So i went to DCA with my friends (adopted family really) tonight and saw something interesting going on in front of California Screamin. The entire area in front of the coaster down to the boardwalk games is fenced off with the classic "We are Imagineering a new attraction for you" signs. Does anyone know what is going on there or what is coming up? I haven't seen a thread for this, so i am assuming it is a new development.

    Btw, the sourdough bread at Boudin was AMAZING tonight!!

    that's where they are building "Midway Mania" if you do a search for that term you'll find lots of info and pix here
    Will there be screams when the sun sets,

    Midway Mania. It is a new ride that is supposed to use guns (think buzz - but supposed to be even better). You are in the ride vehicle and go through several different carnival games earning points.

    I know its on the board here somewhere. Here is a good one:

    If you look in Al Lutz's cloumns you should find a good synopsis of what it is.

    Thank you so much for all the great information and the pointer back for reference, for us new guys to the site.

    So glad someone asked (again) as I was wondering the exact same question.

    I, too, am of the belief that a competetive shooting game, like Buzz, will prove to be very successful. Very happy they decided to put it near Screamin' as it gives someplace close for those who can't (or won't)to ride Screamin' now have a place to enjoy the wait. Very similar when you think of it to Buzz and its location in Tomorrowland.

    Now for another question, any time frame for completion?

    No problem at all, love to help. By the way, if yo uare ever looking for info you can use the search feature as well it can be very helpful when you are looking for specific information. Of course you can always start a thread and someone will be happy to point you in the right direction. Normally, nobody on here would make fun of someone for not knowing something and asking.

    I am not sure on the projected opening date, I am sure its in a thread here i will look for it. Supposed to open in 2008.

    Oh on the loop subject. I hear they are going to build an area where Screamin' goes into a building does a loop inside while rockin' to rock music and then jet back outside!! YAY sounds fun!!!
