    This is hilarious. Exactly why I shudder when people trust it for anything. Look up something you know very well and you find all kinds of mistakes.

    What about in the initial concept art? There’s a building that looks just like MIB

    The initial concept was just existing rides thrown together to give an overall feeling for the park. I don’t think it was ever real. But yea, that might have caused the wiki entry for it. I could see that.

    When I went on MIB recently (a few weeks ago), it appeared that work lights were on after the Tunnel scene, in Times Square. Anyone have any inside scoop as to what is going on?

    The question is, did they actually fix the spinning for left track when the fusion exhaust port is hit in that area.

    Rode MIB today. They skipped the Universe and You pre-show with the elevator! I’m really bummed about this. It was one of my favorite pieces of storytelling in the ride.

    That’s two skipped pre-shows this trip. Is this becoming more normal?

    Sounds like you're having bad luck. For various reasons they skip the Universe and You bit. Short-staffed, too busy, last hour of the night and not enough guests to fill the room, etc. Personally, I would inform a Team Member that you are not happy that they skipped it, and maybe even let Guest Services know. I'd hate to see this become standard as well.

    That pre-show is used when they want to stagger the line during busier seasons. If the line is 5 min, no reason to stagger.

    Yes, as Brian said. When we've walked past, if there's a posted 5 or 10 minute stand by line they seem to generally let you walk straight in without the pre show elevator. Seems like it's basically a crowd size thing.

    Yeah that happened to me at HHN. Thought that was weird when they did that. Thought that would only be the case for HHN but apparently that’s “normal”.

    Yeah...that would be awful if I didn't get to listen to that pre-show every single time I wanted to ride...

    If I'm honest...I couldn't give a damn about MIB's pre-show. Not knocking on those who do, I'm just saying I'll always just walk through the cold-ass Single Rider hallway, get on, shoot-shoot-shoot, "Are We Alone? Of Course We Are!", roll credits.
