While standing in line you can watch video clips featuring behind the scenes of special effects from different movies on TV’s hanging from the ceiling.

Pearl Harbor

This ride will be asking for a few volunteer’s for the first special effect demonstration for the "Water" scene.

As we watch the "Water" demonstration safely behind the rails (except for the lucky volunteers) it is amazing how much water is used in this scene.

This guy couldn't believe how much water,either!!!!! He was such a good sport!

There is a submarine that gets hit with torpedoes and explosions where you can actually feel the heat.
