I rode this a few weeks ago, after not riding it for several years, and one thing immediately stood out to me about how times have changed. When I was a little kid, there used to be so much loose change flying around the floor of this ride. I would try to stop it with my foot and keep it there until the end of the ride. When I worked this ride as a teenager, I used to bring home at least a few dollars everyday from the change that would fly off the ride. When I rode it a few weeks ago, I didn't see or hear any change flying around. I guess that it's a result of everyone using credit/debit cards now, instead of cash. Or maybe everyone has Discovery Dollars
I was milling around YouTube today and stumbled upon something I hadn't seen before: The original ad for Da Vinci's Cradle. Sounds pretty neat, right? Wrong. This is one of the creepiest ads I've ever seen. Between the crazy-looking old man, the young girl singing in the background, and the narrator's somewhat seductive tone, I'm royally disturbed. Watch at your own risk. This cannot be unseen.
