Backlot Tour
MGM Studios is one of my favorite theme parks. It offers great shows, rides and behind-the-scenes attractions. These scenes are part of the Backlot Tour where movie effects are explained. These poor guys get to participate in some very wet scenes of Pearl Harbor. In this scene, a truck catches fire. The water tank breaks and bursts into the truck and the audience!
       
     Shows

Indiana Jones Stunt Show
Indiana Jones Stunt Show
MGM offers great shows -- Beauty and the Beast, The Hunchback and the Indiana Jones Stunt Show.   In the Indiana Jones stunt show, Indy is chased by a huge 'stone' ball. Fire, exploding cars -- the ususal Indiana Jones movie ingredients.
       
     Rides
Tower of Terror
Rock 'n Roller Coaster
 
The Tower of Terror is the best ride. Based on the Twilight Zone it drops you 13 stories faster than gravity... The new Rock'n Roller Coaster is Space Mountain with a twist: 0-60 in 2.8 seconds, loopings and corkscrews.

The highlight of the day is the Fantasmic! show in the evening. The show combines actors, fire, colored fountains, movie clips projected on a screen of water and boats. Mickey the sorcerer fights an evil dragon in this battle of imaginations. The grand finale completes the show with fireworks.
