It's An Epic Stuntshow!

As many of you know, the "Lights, Motors, Action!" stuntshow in Disney's Hollywood Studios over in Walt Disney World, Florida originated in the Walt Disney Studios over in Paris. So I thought that today we would have a brief look at that very show.


Moteurs...Action! as it is called in the Disneyland Resort Paris version holds many similarities to it's baby brother in Florida. The same kind of cars are used, Opel Corsas (or better known to us Brits as Vauxhall Corsas), with the black cars being evil and the red car being the goodie.

The show premiered in March 2002, and to cope with the many languages of the European counterpart is mainly presented in English and French. One presenter speaks English, while the other speaks French, and through talking to each other, you can get the gist of what is happening without having to know both languages. Because of this, the show runs slightly longer (40 minutes in Paris, opposed to 35 minutes in Florida). Of course, the sets themselves are similar as the Floridian stuntshow is still set in a European courtyard.

Moteurs...Action! Stunt Show

The stadium in Paris holds a little less, with a capacity of 3,000 guests per show (with usually 2 or 3 a day). But, does the 'hero' red car win in this one too? Ah, well, there is only one way to find out...

We liked this show okay the first time we saw it, and are convinced to give it several more tries to impress us, but there is only one stunt show for this reporter, and it stars the fedora and the whip!

I like this one 'cause the first time I saw it was without my dad - and I kept thinking 'Aw, can't wait for him to see this!'
However mum hates this one - as the week before we saw it, her black corsa was written she really thinks they're evil!
And, well, you can't beat Indy, can you?!
