LMA was a pretty good stunt show imo...but it was a show that you saw once and then never again.
The big problem was that it was almost all dialogue and very little action. If they would have had it reversed, it could have been a damn good attraction. That's probably the main reason it was a one and done attraction.

There’s no way to do that without costing exponentially more. The downtime is required for resets, safety, and maintenance. They’d need to hire a much larger cast and invest in expensive sets.

Also LMA was designed by Thierry Coup!

There you go, TC . Surprised they didn't attach more screens to the attraction. :lol:....Seriously, though, if they can't do primarily action, it's not worth doing in the first place.

He designed it for WDSP though, right?

Cast previews are today. Generally what I've heard is "it's cute". Also you can notice the mouth and body colors don't match.

Previews have been on-going for a few days. And yeah, the color difference is real noticeable in the video, will be interesting if it’s as noticeable in real life.
