"Simply amazing! That’s my reaction to Disneyland Paris. I wonder if there is anything quite like it. Three days of lovely sunshine helped. Then we saw 4-5 big shows (missing perhaps a dozen others!). In every case we got so much more than we expected. I thought the "Tram Tour" would be a simple ride around the Disneyland area, but no.... at the first main set, we stopped to look at a large tanker, parked by a hillside of rocks. Then it began to happen. Loud explosions told us an earthquake was happening. Our tram began to rock from side to side. Then it began to pelt with rain (fortunately we were under cover). Next… the tanker explodes, all the “fuel” inside going up in flames - yes real flames, some 10 metres high and very warm as we watched. Then huge amounts of water came cascading down the hill straight for the tram. Miraculously just as it was about to swamp us, it went down underneath. Then we travelled on to “London” in WWII. A bomb had just landed and the streets were in ruins, with a train hanging above us, looking as if it could drop down at any minute!
Perhaps my favourite show was an open air theatre with some 5000 spectators in the stands. The scene in front of us was a large shopping centre. For half an hour we watched as cars and motor cycles did the most amazing stunts, quite impossible so it would seem. Again huge walls of fire went up with one of the motor cyclists catching fire and getting covered in flames. It was just one of many thrilling moments in the visit..."
