    Re: Fantasmic and the Aptly Named Dragon

    I love that the dragon has been nicknamed Murphy - I've seen it have problems at at least one Fantasmic show. It never emerged from the mountain, the way it's supposed to, in that particular show. However, I've also seen it work properly, and it's cool when it does.

    Stupid question - what's the Yeti supposed to do that it apparently doesn't do very often?

    Not a stupid question if you've never seen it. When the train rolls into the Yeti cavern at the end of EE, he would turn and then reach out and grab at the train with a HUGE claw while roaring. The effect was one that you had surprised the Yeti and he was mad (red glowing eyes and all). It always looked great but If you were sitting in the back so you could see the whole thing, it was the most amazing effect of any roller coaster I've ever been on. I can't wait until they get it repaired!!!!

    Oh, ok. I've seen the Yeti do that - in fact, I'm not sure if I've ever seen it not do that! Maybe I've been one of the lucky ones LOL. Thanks for the info.
