One of the new attractions at Disney MGM Studios that I got to experience for the first time was the Lights, Motors, Action Extreme Stunt Show. I've seen other stunt shows before (including the Indiana Jones show several times), but nothing compares to this show! The theater is absolutely huge, containing an entire French town set. To fit the MGM Studios theme, there's a pretend director and actors that walk the audience through the various scenes, but the meat of the performance is sheer action! It's really exciting when each scene begins, because you hear the roar of the cars approaching, and then suddenly they are all over the place. Each car is constantly skidding, creating tons of smoke as they grind their tires down to nothing! This is really precision driving, too - whipping around to shop inches in front of other cars, going forwards and backwards at high speeds, and many other jaw-dropping maneuvers. Of course, there are explosions, too (gotta have a fireball!), as well as motorcycles and even a jet-ski! It's amazing to me they can do this show several times a day - the drivers are really fearless professionals. If you like roaring engines and squealing tires, this show is definitely for you! Here are a few photos from the first day of my Walt Disney World trip, and there are plenty more on the way.
