    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    i didnt realise you'd be loading them from right there, I assumed you'd load them from within the ride building. wow

    Thanks for posting this video.
    Why must every major ride added nowdays have a gift shop at the exit? The best compliment I can give DCA opening day, is that you didn't exit through any gift shops.

    My guess for the open load area would prob be to give the feel of the old victorian pier days, most rides loaded outdoors.

    As much as people complain about this, it works. People do buy stuff at a ride exit's store. For me, I think it kind of saves real estate. And if someone doesn't want to ride, they can just browse in the store while they wait. They can be looking at something instead sitting around doing nothing.

    That's just my opinion.

    BINGO!!!!

    That's it, Spark!

    Reminds me of how the haunted pirate dark ride they had at the Balboa Fun Zone was loaded. Unfortunately this closed a couple years back to make way for the expansion of the Newport Harbor Nautical Museum.

    They closed that? I loved the ride when I was little. It will be missed. Most rides loaded outside because most of them were more carnival type of attractions.
