    Re: Trouble with 3D Attractions

    I am legally blind in one eye (I guess you could call it wall-eyed, but I'm not thrilled with that term), so I can never see 3-D effects. In fact, it tends to make me a bit woozy because my "blind" eye is still trying to see and it just messes with my brain. I stay away from the 3-D shows. I have seen them all once or twice.

    Re: Trouble with 3D Attractions

    As a child your ability to suspend disbelief is a little bit better. As you get older and have much more experience dealing in the true 3d world, your perception of the "quality" of 3d films gets better. You are able to pick out the failings of the old 3d formats.

    Luckily, there is a new 3d format that is no longer left/right horizontal/vertical polarization. It is spiral polarization for both eyes, involves flickering frames on the screen much faster than your eye can differentiate rather than continuously feeding two images simultaneously. This cuts down on the blur and allows for you to rotate your head a significant amount and keep the 3d effect intact. It reduces the headaches associated with 3d films as well. This is called RealD and was pioneered by Disney as well as LucasArts and WETA in cooperation with RealD Inc.

    Re: Trouble with 3D Attractions

    I just remembered that I recently saw "The Ant Bully" in 3D at an IMAX theatre and it was the best I have ever seen. So maybe the new technology is a lot better. Lets hope that any future 3D attractions Disney does has the latest and greatest tech.

    Re: Trouble with 3D Attractions

    The new tech is amazing. It requires a silvered screen and a digital projector (which is why a lot of theaters have been converting over to DLP lately). Why Disney doesn't do this is beyond me.

    Muppets always gives me a headache, but ITTBAB is fine.

Is there something wrong with my eyes?
    I have that same problem. I was watching T2-3D and it just didnt appear 3d. The projections appreared to be double with the glasses on, the same way they would if they werent on. Or maybe the whole 3D fad is just not that effective.

    Re: Trouble with 3D Attractions

    HISTA and Muppets hurt my eyes... ITTBAB doesn't. It's true that HISTA looks out-dated and I see the 'flickering' and blurred effects (example: I tilt my head and I see the red and blue patterns, whereas I went to an imax 3D and that never happened; I felt like I was part of the action!)

    Muppets has shakey images (like the time the 3D comes toward you, I think it's supposed to look shakey, but it looks too shakey; and also Waldo, the spirit of 3D, sometimes appears to be shaking while he's still)

    ITTBAB, however, has excellent animatronics (some of the most amazing I've seen, especially Hopper!), and the most realistic 3D effects I've seen. To me, it tops HISTA and Muppets, but I guess too many people are scared of it, even if though it's one of the only decent 3D shows.

    About child's and adult's eye images, I've always responded the same way to 3D, it still comes within 2 ft. away from my view, but maybe it's just me.

    I agree with you, patattack, almost every 3D movie has: something "attacking" us, the rat trick, and a water spray effect (sneeze, water explosion, etc.)...

    HISTA:
    What's "attacking" us: the snake, the shrinking machine
    The rat trick: says it all
    Water effect: dog sneezing

    Muppets:
    What's "attacking" us: cannonballs at the end
    The rat trick: (coming a blank for me, I haven't been to Muppets in 2 years)
    Water effect: when the bear squirts water on us

    ITTBAB:
    What's "attacking" us: tarantula, mite, Hopper, etc.
    The rat trick: bugs crawling under the seats, wasps poking your back
    Water effect: mite acid attack, stink bug spray

    (a little off-topic) It's sorta like all motion simulators are getting the same. I always expect:
    - Something to make the plans go wrong, and a disaster happens
    - A great escape/rescue mission
    - Being attacked by something
    - An awkward/incomplete ending (like Star Tours, where it's like "I'm still getting used to my programming", but then again he's been trying to get used to his programming for twenty years now? exception: Body Wars, we get out of the body with a different and new accomplished mission)

    Just sit closer if you have a big head. That will increase the distance between the images because, well, the image will be bigger. If you get too much 3D and get a headache, sit farther back.

    Maybe they should have a place where you can measure your head at all these attractions so you know where you should sit.
