Disney's Hollywood Studios - Sounds Dangerous
Sounds Dangerous - Starring Drew Carey
Opened: May 1989 - CLOSED 2012
Attraction length: 12 minutes
"Sounds Dangerous" stars Drew Carey. This is one of those attractions that was changed to capitalize on the star's popularity at the time. "The Drew Carey Show" (which was a big hit for ABC) has stopped airing, but "Sounds Dangerous" is still around (sort of).
This attraction is in a theater. After you're seated, you'll be instructed to put on the headphones.
The premise is that a TV pilot is being tested. Drew Carey plays the role of Detective Foster who is working undercover. Suddenly, the theater goes dark, and we're talking pitch black. By use of Binaural sound, the action continues with some pretty funny moments.
What's "Binaural Sound" you ask? It's when each earpiece can operate independent of the other. In other words, you have no idea what sound you'll hear next, or which ear you'll hear it in. It really is interesting how your brain is tricked by the combination of darkness and sound.
If you see a line, keep in mind that the show runs every 12 minutes. You should be able to get in for the next presentation.
CAUTION: The theatre becomes COMPLETELY dark. While you might understand what's going on, it can be pretty scary for children. If your children are afraid of the dark, pass on this one.
Fun Fact: This attraction was formerly the Monster Sound Show.
