    This is a great ride to rest and cool off on. Love re-living some of the classic movies. The ride does need to be updated. I think The Alien scene needs to give way to something else.

    The trick to getting the western scene is this. The ride must be running two groups at once. The first car or group gets the western scene. The second gets the mob scene.
