On Monday, I rode Monsters Inc at DCA, and what a ride it was! Imagine riding through these show scenes past silent, motionless characters and sets. That was it: no animatronics working, no dialogue tracks, nothing but background music. As soon as I got off the ride, I told the CM, who apologized and said, "We know." I didn't say anything to him, but in my mind, I was thinking, "Excuse me? Then why don't you go 101 and call Facilities? I realize this is only a couple hours before park closing (6 PM for an 8 PM closure), but what are you thinking?"
So I told the greeter outside the same thing: no movement, no dialogue. Apparently, he hadn't heard about it, so he went inside immediately. I came back a few minutes later, only to find the ride still open. I just walked away shaking my head.
Call me a "foamer," but I just don't see any excuse for keeping a ride open when it's half broken.
