Combo Post 2 - Episodes 119 and 120

I apparently love making Combo Posts, because this is already the second one of 2017.

The latest episodes of "What's the Attraction?" knock out a few more reviews for theme park attractions that have been requested by the fans. We hit Popeye and Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges at Universal's Islands of Adventure in Episode 119, which can be found by clicking here, toot-tooooot!

Episode 120 tackles another fan request, bringing us onboard the Death Star itself. Thankfully, no Bothans had to perish to bring us information about the replacement for the Magic of Disney Animation attraction at Disney's Hollywood Studios: the Star Wars Launch Bay. This episode features guest roles courtesy of Matt Timmy Creamer (the MoviePilot blogger, whose articles can be found right here, amigo) and CellaBellaRella. Check out the episode by using the force of your mouse or touchpad to click over there. No, just kidding, click right here!

Enjoy our latest, and feel free to leave comments, subscribe, and tell your friends! As always, thanks for watching!

Combo Post - New Episode and a Minisode!

Happy 2017, fans and listeners! SurferClock here, with a huge apology to those who still use this blog as a source of information for "What's the Attraction?" updates...I totally forgot to post about Episode 118, our review of Frozen Ever After. If you haven't seen it yet, you can check that out (last review of 2016, and Epcot's newest attraction!) by clicking here! It was the last episode of 2016, and features one of the newest members of the WTA regular guest stars, CellaBellaRella!

After you've enjoyed that episode, we've got something a bit more somber on the docket for today. You'll notice that this is posted on Friday, not the normal podcast day. SeaWorld Florida announced that Tilikum, one of the most iconic orcas of the family, has passed away earlier today. While more empathic human beings are giving SeaWorld their thoughts and prayers during this tough time, a good majority of the social media responses to Tilikum's passing are...not so nice, to say the least. I put out something of a Fed Up! mini-episode as an impassioned plea to those thinking about perpetuating further malice and hatred so soon after this unfortunate passing, which you can listen to right here.

2017 promises to be an exciting year for theme park fans, and "What's the Attraction?" will be right here, rating and discussing more attractions old and new, and we hope that you'll not only join us, but bring more of your friends along for the ride(s)! May we all enjoy a prosperous and happy new year, and stay tuned to "What's the Attraction?", where our work is your vacation!
