    Thinner Machine from Roger Rabbit

    I'm trying so hard to remember... where was this in MGM back in the day? I'm trying to place it and think of what is there now. Is this the spot where there is the little gift shop now across from the Honey I Shrunk the Kids spot?

    Could be, it does look like the building the steam roller was in with the gift shop. Is the steam roller long gone too?
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    We got pictures with the steam roller and characters at the end of the Backlot Tour in 1990. I thought all that stuff was located in that area.

    I was leaning that way too but that area I'm referring to is technically where the exit from the backlot tour is now. I couldn't remember how it was laid out pre-LMASS.
