  1. Comparing the two, it's entirely possible that's the dressing room figure. It seems like his arms are out more and his legs are bent a bit. But without seeing the Peppers Ghost figure it's hard to say for sure. I think the PG figure would have a lift on the back of him like the usher does (though with a larger range), not attached to a base. If he was on a lift his legs probably wouldn't be built to support his upper body. Audience member uses the face from AVG's Andy Warhol animatronic!
  2. Thank you for the photo links! I guess I completely missed that we have a photo gallery hahaha The Houdelini figure out in 2005 definitely isn't the main one with his rabbit, I thought it may have been the figure used in the Peppers Ghost scene. It's in a much different pose than the dressing room one. Also fun fact! The face used for the sitting audience member is Andy Warhol.
  3. Does anyone have any photos of the PT display from the year the one below was taken? I can't remember the year but I think it was 2 or 3 years after the ride closed. This doesn't look like the same Houdelini figure that was on display in later years (the dressing room figure).
  4. This is the best explanation I've seen, thank you so much! Man what I wouldn't give to see that scene in it's entirety. There has to be professional, or even clear, footage of it somewhere. There's one video that shows some if it clearer than others, but I can't remember the title of it. I'll post a link when I get home.
  5. I'd love to see the photos from R&R! I reached out to them but haven't gotten a reply. I can't discuss my connections yet, but that is indeed the real stage hand dude! If I'm able to get any of the uncut footage you guys will be the first to know!
  6. Hey everyone! Longtime lurker, recent new member here with some questions about Phantom Theater, one of my most favorite rides in the world. I have some connections with Phantom Theater that I can't discuss yet, but I will definitely be posting here when I can. I've dedicated a lot of time to researching and scouring the net for photos and videos, and I've reached out to several media companies that either did videos or articles on the ride back in the day in hopes of obtaining copies of the uncut footage and high quality photos. With all that said, I had some questions that hopefully someone on here can answer. How many of the figures still exist? I know they appeared wrapped in sheets the last time they were out and haven't appeared publicly since. Does anyone have photos of the ride when it was operating? Particularly of the characters. I've seen most of what's publicly available online. I'm especially interested in clear shots of the characters and any behind the scenes photos. Can anyone explain the Peppers Ghost scene? Which characters were in it and what were they doing? I never actually got to ride Phantom Theater and that scene doesn't show up very well in videos. From what I can see, I've gathered that Houdelini is in the top left, Hilda is on the building, Garbonzo in his cannon, and Lionel is toward the bottom. I'm assuming Maestro is down there too? And of course the audience members. I think that's all my questions for now, but I'm sure I'll have more eventually haha.
  7. I can't say it's the worst because it is a very enjoyable coaster, but The Incredible Hulk Coaster at Islands of Adventure left me with a bad headache after riding. That thing rattles your brain like a maraca
