So I went to the DCA last Sunday and a few things happened:
Let's start with the MAGIC:
I specifically went that day because my 2fer was soon expiring and I really wanted to go to DCA. So the moment I step out of the car, I remember that I left the ticket at home, which is a good drive away. My family goes to the ticket booth and we tell the cast member the story. Although I expected a ruined day, she ended up printing me a Complimentary Ticket!! The day was great and I was really happy.
Now let's move over to the MALFUNCTION:
California Screamin' is one of my favorite rides at DLR and I also like the music played during the ride. (On a side note, I'm a big music person, so this ride like Space Mountain combines what I like - music and thrill) So I go on Screamin' ready for the music to start playing when i leave the station but ... no music turns on. The whole ride went by without sound (expect for screaming). I ended up singing the sond in my head.
So later that day I head back to Screamin' and get on the ride, and luckily the music starts as normal (let me point out that i was in a different train this time). So we launch and just before the first hill, the music shuts off . Then as we start going up the lift, the music turns on ... but not at the point in the song that correlates, it turns on from the beginning of the song. So at this point we're going down the hill, through the loop and around the Maliboomer and the music is completely different from the track. Then i noticed that at point like in the loop and drop(during the music) the song has screams added in? That was something new to find out!
We head down to the end and the music's still playing as if we were going fast. Then as we're going into the station, it's playing loud and eventually, abruptly shuts off.
What a wierd ride!
Has this happened to anyone else? (and i don't mean the ticket situation)
