Triangular Dead Space

Ok, so this clip here was shot by yours truly on the day we did our first extended stay. It starts off in the little hiding place that we have talked about before in earlier posts. We are waiting in here, calculating the time that the car we were riding in would reach unload, to see if any alarms would go off since it would be empty!! :) Heh, but of course nothing of the sort happened.

Then we have a couple shots from the space catwalk, undersea catwalk, and then behind the mesa verde grove. And as I watch these again, I hate the fact that its so dark, I really wish there was a way to see it exactly how we saw it when our eyes adjusted to the dark. :( At one point behind the grove you can see me turn my camera light on for a few seconds. But unfortunately I didnt leave it on for very long, 1. because it burned thru my battery real quick, and 2. I was scared someone would see us for sure if we were walking around with a spotlight on. While I am looking thru one of the holes that Hoot gets one of our cool harvester shots from (that we have shown in earlier posts) you can hear the ride stop speil, then you can here us talking about finding a hiding spot, we were always certain that the ride was stopping because of us. :)

Then when our stay is done, we find a gap, and get back to the front of the cars and follow our gap out like the good old days. At one point at the kitchen, I turn around and shine my light at the cave again, then I run up the stairs to no where behind the daughters computer room. It might be kinda hard to tell here, but we are very excited because it appears that our mission was a success, although we still have to exit the ride. And by mission I mean our plan to see if we could indeed stay in the ride for hours and not get caught. Because if this worked, then this opened up a whole new realm of possibilities, no longer would we be restricted by how large our gap was. You can hear me (right after Hoot gets his monkeyshine on with the octopus) talking about what a 'fun ass fuckin day' it was, then in space you can hear my schoolboy excitement again talking about 'we were up there man', meaning when we were up on the catwalk above space. Then right after that we point out where Hoot almost died on an earlier trip, which we posted about before.

Then we finally come around to unload, we are nervous but excited. We tell ourselves to just be confident and walk out like normal. Then you can see our relief and hear Hoot proclaim '4 goddamn hours later', hehe, damn it was awesome, mission success! Then I love it right at the end of this clip, you can hear Hoot asking me if we want to ride again. Heh, we could never get enough, we were just in there for 4 hours, and we are still thinking we can get one more ride-thru before future world closes! Enjoy!

  2. Wow guys. All this time I thought you worked there. You're one of the unique that would sneak off a ride to record more of it not to be a punk kid and vandalize it! I truly envy you guys and just seeing you guys exit it makes me very nostalgic. Thanks!

    Do you guys have a direct way of contacting you like in IM?

  7. "Triangular Dead Space"... I don't know why, but I love that phrase. Is it the name of an unknown indie rock band? Is it a long lost Stanley Kubrick movie - perhaps the real sequel to 2001? Or is just a little known area of our brains tucked in behind the corpus callosum? Whatever it is, there's something about that title I really like.

  8. LOL! My favorite part...after 4 hours in the ride....."Want to ride again?" That most certainly would have been me!
