    By the way, they all use a trackless guidewire system, where essentially the vehicle listens to a radio signal in the ground and communicates 2way across it. Indy uses it for the sets, ToT for the 5th dimention and other horizontal movements, GMR uses it for the vehicles, and Energy was the original incarnation of the new ride system. It's officially called a "Traveling Theater."

    . How high is the top of Epcot's Eiffel Tower? How tall is the physical structure of the tower? How tall is the show building it sits atop?
    Loric - The original Eiffel Tower is 986 feet. So I will guess the physical structure is 10 feet tall.

    I'll also take a stab and say the show building is really only 2 stories tall - so we'll guess 20 feet

    For a grand total guess of 30 feet

    Hey, gonna ruin the fun, but i might not be able to provide an answer for a while.. so he's the answer:

    It's built at 1/10 scale roughly, so the whole structure is 103ft, the actual "tower" is 69ft, and the show building it rests atop is 34ft.

    Let's pick this one up again...

    What is the name of the mechanism that maneuvers the sets in the American Adventure, and how many sets are there in all?



    <- For no other reason than I just really like this "smilie"

    The War Wagon is correct, but 13 is just a couple too many

    OK, I just gave it away, so take it away, tigger!!

    199 Feet - because at 200 feet it would need an aircraft warning light!
