This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Walt Disney World's Disney's Hollywood Studios, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.
I honestly have never been a big fan of stunt shows... This looks kinda cool but they always seem a bit lame. I just kinda never know what to think of these things as usually most of the things going on just aren't close enough to you to make a real impact.
I have never enjoyed a stunt show before and was especially disappointed when the plane didn't launch when I went to see Waterworld at Universal Hollywood. All the shows I have seen were terrible. Worst was a Batman show at Six Flags Over Texas... 30 min late because of technical difficulties in high 90's and it was just complete and utter crap.
What you mean good narration? None of the terribly acted bits between something that could be considered remotely action oriented.
Seriously though Waterworld had some cool parts. The bit where they launch the jetski under the wall and some of the explosions were cool. Overall though it was pretty painful.
The worst thing was that Batman show I was talking about at SF:OT was setup as like a stunt shoot. So they keep pausing and saying now we are going to film such and such. OMG it was terrible you saw the stunt men bouncing on trampolines and stuff on some of the falls. Ack!!! Six Flags shouldn't be allowed to do stuntshows.
Honestly why hasn't anyone made a tongue in cheek stuntshow? I mean seriously make fun of the bad acting and stuff. Joke around with the audience. It could be incredibly funny if they got the right people.
Wow, great pictures. I saw this show a few times before in Disneyland Paris and yes, it looks definitely like the same in DLRP. I like this show, because there are a lot of cool stunts and action. I think it is a good expansion for the MGM Studios.
Believe me when I say that this is not your average Theme Park Show whit some lame pretending stunts. This is the real deal and you’ll be on the edge of your seat during many of the stunts… There is some time between the set up of the next stunt where not much happens, but is needed so you can be amazed again…
Have a good look at the picture from Paris higher up in this topic. You can see the bridge over the water. I would like to know if they have this one in MGM too. This was added later, after a stunt gone wrong. (The car didn’t make it over the water)… This safety procedure did take the jet ski stunt out… Would be interesting to know if the bridge is there and if the jet ski stunt will be performed…
