Earth globe testing and a few technical isses

Jul 27, 1999 in "IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth"

Testing is continuing nightly on the new show. Besides running the inferno barge, and the BIG bang, the video ball is now running. Some problems have also surfaced over the movement of the ball. The barge ways in excess of 500000 pounds, and when placed into the lagoon marina, it went straight to the bottom! The important parts were still above water, but the base was sitting on the floor! the marina area was dredged by 3 feet, and it is still hitting the bottom. This adds further weight to the fact that they may have to leave the barge permanently in the lagoon. Although reports indicate that it is not much of a looker in daylight! :-)
