Streets of America

DHS Map The Streets of America is a Movie Set set. From one side, it looks like a street from urban New York complete with an Empire State building at one end. Or San Francisco complete with a hill at the end. From the other side, it's only smoke and mirrors, with the framework and facade exposed.

Also included here is the Muppetvision 3-D movie, where all your Muppets come to 3-D life... Or the Honey I Shrunk The Kids Movie Set Adventure, when you become a small being a in world of giant things... Or the Lights, Motors Action! Extreme Stunt Show, a automotive stunt show where lightweight cars perform amazing tricks. And, of course, the Backstage Tour, only a shadow of its former self, with it's visit to Catastrophe Canyon...

It also hosts the Osborne Lights every Christmas season. There are more pictures of Streets of America in it's holiday dress in the Christmas section.

Muppetvision
Muppetvision 3-D. Just as corny today as it was in 1989.

Streets of America - Muppetvision 3D

Muppetvision 3D opened in 1991, a year after Star Tours. So if we use Star Tours as the length of time in which an attraction should exist before being re-imagined, Muppetvision should have been done already.

Okay, not going to happen. It's reportedly the last project Henson worked on before his death. I wouldn't be surprised if this attraction remains unchanged until they close DHS... They cleaned up the film and digitized it a couple of years ago. Disney also bought the franchise in 2004. (A net full of jello, indeed.)

Muppetvision is like sitting in the audience of a Muppet Show show. Statler and Waldorf are even up in the balcony, doing what they pretty much defined, heckling the cast members.

Streets of America - Honey I Shrunk The Kids Movie Set Adventure

Honey I Shrunk The Kids Movie Set Adventure is a playground area for the smaller children, who probably haven't run around enough that day.

Youth is wasted on the young. Pardon me if you've heard me say that before.

Streets of America - Studio Backlot Tours

Studio Backlot Tours. Hmmm... Let me see if I can find something nice to say about SBT... If they were to scrap it, it'd free up a lot of space for something else!

Studio Backlot Tours was on the decline before Lights, Motors, Action! was imported to WDW, but the attraction was pretty much gutted to make way for the stadium.

Catastrophe Canyon is still shaking up the trams, but with the loss of the residential streets and most of the prop area to Lights, Motors, Action!, it's only a shadow of its former self.

Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show

Lights, Motors, Action! was an import from Disneyland Paris in 2005, as part of the Happiest Celebration On Earth, Disneyland's 50th anniversary.

It's a decent show. Makes you want to drive one of the machines around the set. I mean the machines have roll cages, right?
