Does anyone have a picture of the "bucket" that goes up and down the lift of Milli. I think it is used instead of having a lift-walk.

LOL, commish. I remember when I first saw Millie thinking in my mind "Wow, they make them climb down the ladder if they have to evac? That doesn't seem safe." It wasn't until I rode it that I noticed the person-carrier or whatever you want to call it, and the "ladder" was just a track for it to go up and down on. Could you imagine the steps on a hill that steep? :)

Thanks, that is ahhhh well pretty scary. LOL

I believe B&M dive machines also have a 45-degree lift hill but have evacuation stairs instead of a bucket. That would be like walking down the first drop of The Beast.

yah, but their lift hills don't reach a max height of 310...

Jeff's fist pic reminds me of the "Mountain Climber" game in The Price is Right
. Hope the bucket never goes over the edge :)

Thanks, Jeremy, now I have that silly little "da da de de da da de de" bit going through my head :)

That song, Plinko, and Barker's beauties were the main reasons to watch that show...
But the Mountain Climber game was ALL about the lederhosen...;)
bill, had a friend win "a brand new car" in the Showcase Showdown, just a couple days after I had to fly home...

yo de you de yo de you de yo yo de you de yo yo de you de yo yo de yo de yo.
It's really hard to win a car on the showcase showdown because that's the part they spin the wheel :)

Crap... I had the same music pop into my head when he said that. Thanks, Jeremy!

Anyone else actually think of the mountain climber video slot? Makes me wanna go to Vegas. They also have a couple other Price is Right slots, Plinko being one of them.
Craps is better than slots, though. :)

Oh. My. Thanks Jeremy, You suxors!

Yuch! At first you were talking about the music in MF's loading station. And then suddenly, I heard it too!:(

J., Are you sure that the "Showcase Showdown" is where they spin the "big wheel"? What's it called when they showdown
, so to speak, for showcases
of prizes at the end of each show?
That "Yodle" song when the little hiker climbs to the top has always been the highlight of the show for me. I have always thought ALL of "The Price Is Right" music is very fun and catchy. The music is my favorite aspect of the show.
WOW! This IS the off-season.

This is Bob Barker reminding your...Help control the pet population. Have your pets spade or neutered. Goodbye everybody.
I love the Price is Right

Ah, TPIR.. what a great show. The only real game of chance on it is Plinko. There's no rigging that could be done to it. I swear it is my lifes ambition to spin that big wheel once. Just once.... ah such small goal I have. :)

dexter, I am sure that the part when they spin the wheel is the showcase showdown. It's when the 3 contestants are in a showdown for the showcase. The part at the end is simply called the showcase round.

J, It's been a while, but I believe you're right.. for some reason I seem to remember hearing him say "We'll be back for another showcase showdown right after these messages" twice per show (before each wheel-spin-part)
