    The Living Seas--Sea Cabs??

    I am in love w/ the Living Seas.. but what's the deal w/ getting rid of the Sea Cabs?? That was one of my favortie parts..(besides taking the hydrolator to the floor of the sea) Does anyone know if they are planning on bringing them back?? I would love it if they did.. I wish I could trade in my car for one of those things .. well.. if I was able to drive it off the track and onto the highway!!

    where are my sea cabs??

    the sea cubs shouldn't be comming back. WDW is adding a Nemo section to the attraction, which is suppose to be replacing the sea cabs. i believe that the sea cabs were taken out for the same reason for 20,00 leagues, lack of part to repare them

    I doubt it. While it is/was a nice illusion, especially for kids and some adults, the whole Hydrolator process took too long to move the crowds. As a result The Living Seas is not too popular, even for us WDW fanatics. I do not know what they are going to do, pehaps copy Sea World's moving walkway thru the exhibit. Time will tell.

    Sea Cabs

    I too miss the sea cabs.

    On one trip I asked the guy at the entrance about the sea cabs, and he indicated that they were removed when the Living Seas lost it's sponsor.

    Hopefully, they will do something interesting with the Nemo section.

    i have to agree. i do hope that they do something interesting with Nemo. but i don't go to the living seas for the que and que area shows. i go for the dolphins so either way, it doesn't effect me

    Well, they have Turtle Talk with Crush - that's unlike anything that I've seen before!

    The sea cabs tended to be slow and frequently stopped when someone would stick their foot out or something and hit the intrusion mats... The current configuration is not that bad (Turtle Talk with Crush is awesome.. and will be even cooler if they add another character or something) - but the CM repeatedly announcing to the queue waiting for the Hydrolaters that there is "No ride" is a little sad..

    If anyone remembers the low budget Action show (starring Hulk Hogan) "Thunder In Paradise". It was filmed almost entirely at WDW, they lived in The Grand Floridian Hotel. There was one episode that featured them going in to an underwater prison, which was filmed at the living seas, one of the corridor scenes is along the tracks where the ride was.

    Here is a shot from the set of Thunder in Paradise. You can see the Grand Floridian and the Contemporary resort in the background.

    I read a rumor a couple of years ago that the sea cabs were closed due to a potential terrorist target. Is there any validity to this?

    no, there were no terrorist target in the sea cabs. as fo Thunder in Paradise, the was the water pool that was used for night shots with Bru and Spence in the middle of nowhere in the water. i believe it was removed but i check when they open it back up fully. the boat, "Thunder" was never on display

    I think one of the props from the show was in the boneyard wasn't it? and wasnt it made from the old central tower of the star jets?

    Wait heres a quote I found, about the star jets, on a really cool History of WDW web site illustated with it's postcards..... ;-)

    According to Lou Mongello Author of the Walt Disney World Trivia book and web master of http://www.disneyworldtrivia.com: "When it closed in 1993, the center was removed, painted green camouflage, and used in the TV series Thunder in Paradise which was filmed at Disney-MGM studios (It can now be found in the Studios' "Bone Yard.")

    I do remember a boat in the graveyard, but the boat that was there was during the times they were filming Thunder in Paradise. The Boat was from a show called something like " the adventures of captain black" Which was on the disney channel. I'm probably way off on the name.
