    Just downloaded this, sounds great! However, the final file, rather than being an induction of the isolated binaural audio from the attraction, is just a clip of the beginning of the Phil Harman pre-show.

    Is there more audio of the main show? Like completely binural?

      This is all I was able to get at the time. I tried to do a full recording once and was stopped by a cast member. They used to love to get into arguments with me because I’m sure I looked like a total freak walking around with a Styrofoam head with wires coming out of it.

    I rode this soft opening during a trip in December in 94! I was 8 years old and begged my parents to let me go on it with them. It was extremely scary and every version since got tamer & tamer. However, that first experience is stuck in my brain forever. Thanks for the audio!

      I wish it did! I managed to record the show on video and then accidentally wiped it out a few hours later. Not a high-point of that day, I can tell you.
