Anyone know why the last car on California Screamin' has that big ugly box at the back?

It's a guess, but it looks like it could be for a control system.

I think it's for the on-ride music system but I am not sure.

I guess Rock N' Roller's is hidden nicely in the "trunk" of the caddy.

It's for the music system. Something to think about. What powers the sound system when it's on the course?? Batteries. This box on the back, as well as the one-seat row mid-train probably contains a mess of rechargeable batteries, as well as the sound system circuitry.

On RnRC it's actually an elaborate system of capicators (because they'll charge a lot faster than the batteries) which are charged while in the station. It may be the same on Cali' Screamin'. Even though Screamin' and RnRC were designed by different companies I believe WDI still did the sound on both.

I have a similar question... Row 3-1 on some of the trains have only one seat. The left side has just a large box and no seat or OTSR. You can see that nobody is riding that seat in the pic linked above. I don't think it is part of the music system because I don't remember seeing that on all of the trains. Anyone know?

I believe that is the transfer seat position...one seat is removed so that a disabled rider can be more easily moved into the single seat and secured by an attendant.

Not certain of that, but I think that's what I heard someplace...
