^Those pouches work wonders on Everest, and Space Mountain, and they seem to do just fine....not that Disney is anyone you'd want to emulate... ;)

Not being as familiar with Disney as many here are..and having never been on Everest...Gator, are these pouches of which you speak actually on the trains/carts?

^Yep, attached to the seat/car in front of you when you board (on the side on SM). You put your stuff in, ride, remove stuff, and go on your way. Beats every other system I've seen....even Universal's free lockers. Should you forget to grab your stuff on exit, a cast member will remind you - Disney is a place built on SERVICE!

Seems like there were pouches at Disneyland too. I know I've encountered them elsewhere.

The best pouch I have ever used at an amusement park is my front pocket. ;)

I seem to recall Rock n Roller Coaster had those pouches and that's about as intense as any ride is going to get.

Andy, RnRC isn't made of wood, and it has OTSRs, therefore it cannot be intense.

Not that any of this matters one bit for Windseeker, as (based on the renderings) the Windseeker seat is part of an actual gondola, meaning if your stuff fits in your pockets it isn't going anywhere anyway.

(of course, the Orlando Star Flyer seats are open swing seats and nothing came out of my pockets on that thing, either...)

Yes I have been on Voyage, Legend, and Raven (and both Gio hypers, Shockwave and Mindbender, etc. etc.). By intense I meant "going to dislodge your stuff from a pouch."

Be thankful you never rode the Smurf ride at KI/KD.

It'd make your blood run cold. ;)

I think I said the same thing the last time I rode through an "It's A Small World" ride. It was fun as a kid, but disturbing as hell as an adult! ;)

I rode the Smurf ride at KD.

And now you know why I'm the way I am.

I guess that would explain me as well!

I rode it several times at KI, but haven't really thought about it until now. I guess it's all those repressed memories. ;)

Post Smurf Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I'm actually biased. Probably the only reason I don't hate IASW as much as the Smurf ride is, IASW didn't replace my favorite childhood experience.

I liked Smurf Voyage at KI. I kind of miss it.

I didn't ride Smurf Mountain at KD, even though I have been there before it was removed.

I do not like It's a Small World. Every time I have ever rode it (maybe 10 times or so), I have fallen asleep. No joke. It's as boring as hell, and extremely annoying, in my opinion.

Kinda back on topic, Screamscape is reporting that Knott's Windseeker is being moved to another part of the park, and the Sky Cabin is staying.
