Tour Length: 35 Minutes
The tour starts with a demonstration on the creation of storm scenes in movies (audience participation is requested).  Next, visitors are loaded onto trams (sit on the right if you don't want to get wet) and are driven past sights including the homes from Golden Girls and Empty Nest (Interesting fact - The homes are only partial structures, shown later in the tour).   Next stop on the tour is Catastrophe Canyon - the highlight of the tour - where the Canyon is set on fire (those sitting on the left will get wet and be closest to the flames) and then is put out, showing how filmmakers create disaster scenes.  Afterwards, the tram drives by New York Street to demonstrate the illusion of a three-dimensional street with a one-dimensional set.
