									MouseAdventure Mad Scramble
May 16, 2002 – 1:00 to 5:30
Disney‟s California Adventure


                                    Overview
Road Rally (on foot). Teams will each pass through four Stations. There is no endpoint; Station 4
loops around to Station 1. At each station they will have two quests to complete. When the quests
are done and graded on the spot as correct, their scorecard is stamped and off they go to the next
Station. If they finish all four Stations before the allotted 3 hours, their scorecard is taken from
them, marked completed, and the time is noted on the card. First three winning teams will get
prizes. Winners decided by most stamps collected. If multiple teams finish all stamps, as
anticipated, then the first teams finished win.

Secondary game: Teams will also play EyeSpy as they travel throughout. They get to keep this
packet, and only this packet, the entire time. However, when their scorecard is collected (either
time ends or all stamps done), the EyeSpy must be turned in at this time also. There will be about
22 EyeSpy pictures to choose from. All that is needed as an answer is the name of the
ride/shop/restaurant this image comes from – all images are part of a ―work location‖ rather than
just out and about. Note: some are indoors, some outdoors. Some are from ―work locations‖ not
otherwise visited on the Mad Scramble. Some are part of queues. None require you to ride an
attraction. Note: spelling, accuracy, and completeness in names do count. Teams are encouraged
to get a free souvenir map and guide from main entrance to verify location names.

                                     Quest C: Alphabet Soup

If you‘ve played MouseAdventure before, you‘ll know that we‘re on a neverending quest to
improve the English alphabet. We can‘t leave well enough alone! Who says that the letter ―A‖
has to come first?

Certainly not us. In fact, our favorite formulation has the alphabet start with the letter ―Q‖ and
then continue in the same order (―Z‖ gives way to ―A‖).

Knowing that, you may want to redo the alphabet below. We‘ve done the first letters for you.

      4 * 3 + 16 – 3 then add 2 = ___________ (27)

      100 – 43 – 19 then subtract 5 = ___________ (33)

      6 * 7 – 16 then subtract 5 = ___________ (21)


STEP TWO:
Using the answers from Step One, read only the corresponding words in the paragraph below.

How to read the paragraph:
   1. Read it backwards.
   2. Circle the first word of the first sentence, the second word of the second sentence, and so
       on.
   3. Assemble your circled words to find out what to do.




FINAL ANSWER: ____________________________________________________________

What people seldom realize is that so many things in life aren‘t connected. A number of us try to
make these connections, however. One thing is seldom related to something else. A rabbit sitting
on a grizzly is case in point. Consider the condor, often the most social of creatures, and mine
carts. Would you trust expensive gold ore to a condor? Or try to fly a mine cart? Naturally, the
two aren‘t very well related; the closest they come together is in movies. Not the kind of movie I
usually go to, however. I would rather sit in a sauna; that is paradise to me. Or perhaps talk a long
walk along the beach and pier.

What number is on the ore cart closest to Paradise Pier? (9)

                            Station Three (Redwood Creek)
                                     Quest F: Shifting Gears


In each of the following sentences, the alphabet ―shifts‖ over by one letter. Every sentence, the
shifting continues one letter further. What should be the letter ―A‖ becomes ―B‖ in the second
sentence and ―C‖ in the third, and so on. Here is the same word (―example‖) done to show you
how it works:

First sentence:          Example
Second sentence:         Fybnqmf
Third sentence:          Gzcorng

Using this method, interpret the puzzle below:

                            Station Four (Hollywood „n Dine)
                                Quest G: Frank Lloyd Yeah Right

Designed to evoke the Frank Lloyd Wright style of architecture, the restrooms along Hollywood
Blvd are some of the most distinctive set pieces in Disney‘s California Adventure. The nearby
planters, identical to each other, complete the ―set‖ by incorporating the cinderblock designs.

Your task is a straightforward one: pick either of the planters, and find out how many
cinderblocks are in the planter. You will have to count the ones you cannot see also. How many
such cubical cinderblocks would it take to replicate a third planter with the same size, shape, and
dimensions?

                            Quest H: An Agent has too much junk!


Now that you‘re a Hollywood star, courtesy of Superstar Limo, you‘ve got to go get yourself an
agent. Finding the ―agent‖ is a problem in itself – have you looked around everywhere? Once
you‘ve found the agent, that‘s only half the problem. In Hollywood, the agency system isn‘t very
fair. Agents make a lot of money off you and can buy a lot of stuff!

One item – and only one item – is key to an agent‘s success. Being insiders, we know what that
item is, and we‘re going to help you find it. To find it, you have to navigate through all the
agent‘s junk. Sometimes it seems like his junk is just arranged in haphazard patterns!

Here‘s how to navigate through his junk: start at the sailing vessel (now you know he‘s rich!)
which is close to the center of all his junk. Go left until you hit cobalt blue. Down now to the
child's toy, and go right to the maroon item (which is just above a utensil). Head up to the other
utensil and then right to something big and red. From here, go far right to the citrus, and then
down to the utensil. What animal is below the marble, which is right under the utensil? This is the
Magical Agent Item!

                                     TRIVIA ANSWERS
                                                  Section One - Easy

1.       Which land in Disneyland is the largest in terms of area? D. Frontierland. In the early days this was
     even more obviously the case, for it extended into what is now New Orleans Square (Bear/Critter Country
     was as yet undeveloped). Even with the additions of the new west-side lands, however, Frontierland
     remains vast, covering the Rivers of America, the island it encircles, the western street, and the Big
     Thunder area.

2.        What was the name of the fireworks show when it debuted in 1956? C. ―Fantasy in the Sky.‖ It
     was created by Tommy Walker, who also instituted many other traditions at Disneyland such as Grad Nite
     and the Dapper Dans barbershop quartet. The fireworks show became ―Believe…There‘s Magic in the
     Stars‖ for the 45th Anniversary celebration in 2000.

3.       Which Disneyland watercraft is/are not on rails or in a flume? A. Rafts to Tom Sawyer Island.
     Another attraction currently operating on the Rivers of America that are free-floating are the Davy Crockett
     Explorer Canoes; the Mike Fink Keelboats, which once traveled the rivers, also did not run on a track.

4.        Disneyland has had three systems for ride payment. Which was not one of them? B. There has
     never been a debit card system. The current system of a ―passport‖ entitling the visitor to unlimited use of
     all attractions (except the arcades) replaced the popular ―ticket system‖ in 1982. The ticket system was a
     way to generate interest in the smaller, less visible rides, since tickets for them came bundled in the ticket
     books. A system from A-C, then A-D, and finally A-E was developed, and an E-Ticket came to represent
     the best Disneyland had to offer. When astronaut Sally Ride called the Space Shuttle a ―real E-Ticket ride,‖
     it was clear to all that she meant a ride with great thrills and rewards. The ticket system replaced a coin-
     collection system; in the beginning, visitors would have to pay — with cash — each time they wanted
     admission to a particular attraction. The ticket books, once introduced, also reduced the Guests‘ impression
     that they were constantly going to their wallet all day long.

5.        What is the oldest object in Disneyland? C. The petrified tree located along the shores of the Rivers
     of America, just south of the Mark Twain Riverboat loading dock, is by far the oldest thing in Disneyland.
     This tree was purchased by Walt as an anniversary present for Lillian in 1956, which she quickly donated
     to Disneyland, and installed with a plaque in September, 1957: ―Petrified Tree — From the Pike Petrified
     Forest, Colorado — This section weighs five tons and measures 7½ feet in diameter. The original tree,
     estimated to have been 200 feet tall, was part of a sub-tropical forest 55 to 70 million years ago in what is
     now Colorado. Scientists believe it to be of the redwood of Sequoia species. During some prehistoric era a
     cataclysmic upheaval caused silica laden water to overspread the living forest. Wood cells were changed
     during the course of time to sandstone. Opals were formed within the tree trunk itself.‖

6.        Where in Disneyland can you find a picture of Roy O. Disney? B. At the entrance to the Walt
     Disney Story, in the Opera House on Main Street. These portraits of Roy and Walt are among the very few
     to be found in the Park (there is another one is in the Mark Twain Wheelhouse). Roy very rarely took
     pictures; he preferred to stay out of the spotlight.

7.        Where in Disneyland is there not a population sign? A. Frontierland Train Station. One does exist at
     the train depot on Main Street (at this printing, 450 million); at Toontown, where a whimsical sign
     constantly changes the number and even inserts nonsense symbols; and at the Big Thunder Mountain
     Railroad (38).

8.       How many lands does Disneyland now have? C. Eight: Main Street, U.S.A. (1955), Tomorrowland
     (1955), Fantasyland (1955), Mickey‘s Toontown (1993), Adventureland (1955), Frontierland (1955), New
     Orleans Square (1966), and Critter Country (opened as Bear Country in 1972, name changed in 1988).

9.       Where in Disneyland are the animals stuffed rather than mechanized? D. At the Grand Canyon
     Diorama, the animals are real taxidermic animals.
10.       What was the name of the Disney-owned RV campground near Disneyland? D. Vacationland.
      This property, which opened in 1971 and closed in 1997 to prepare for the Resort expansion, was located
      along West Street, on the current site of the large ―Mickey & Friends‖ Disneyland parking structure.

11.        What two types of trees were grown on the Disneyland site before it was purchased for
      development? A. Orange trees and walnut trees were organized into groves, with more than 12,000 trees
      altogether. The land had come from a Spanish land grant, the Rancho San Juan Cajon de Santa Ana grant.

12.        Where can you find the Disney family crest? D. On the front face of Sleeping Beauty Castle, right
      above the arch that leads through the castle. Just inside the Castle is the Castle Heraldry Shoppe, where
      family crests from around the world can be viewed and purchased with a family history, put on a parchment
      suitable for framing. Most names can be found; yes, even Disney.

13.       How much did it cost to build Disneyland in 1955? B. $17 million. Much of this money was raised
      by deals with ABC and Western Printing and Lithographing, who partly owned Disneyland as a result.
      ABC contributed $500,000 and promised $4.5 million in loans, in return for a 34.48% ownership of the
      Park. In 1960, Disney bought out the ABC investment in Disneyland for $7.5 million. Much later, in 1995,
      Disney bought all of ABC/Capital Cities itself. They have yet to buy Bank of America, however.

14.        Until 1985, Disneyland was scheduled closed during non-peak times on which two days of the
      week? B. Until February 6, 1985, Disneyland was scheduled to be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays during
      the off-season. No one really thought that an amusement park could make money year-round by staying
      open every day of the week; most were open only on holiday periods and sometimes on weekends.
      Disneyland changed all that by providing a reason for people to create work vacations.

15.       What is the official credit card of Disneyland? D. American Express. In fact, you can get ―White
      Glove treatment‖ by using your American Express Card at Disneyland, including discounts at certain
      buffeteria-style restaurants, though only at certain hours of the day. Naturally, they accept other credit
      cards, including JCB, in a nod to the strong Asian tourism. For a current list of ―White Glove Treatment‖
      benefits, inquire at City Hall in Town Square.

16.       How many treehouses are there at Disneyland? C. There are currently three, but throughout
      Disneyland‘s history there have been four. Currently, Tarzan‘s Treehouse and Tom and Huck‘s Treehouse
      on Tom Sawyer Island are the only ones available to Guests to walk through, but there is a ―Treehouse of
      Technology‖ on display at Innoventions in Tomorrowland. Until the summer of 1998, Chip ‘n Dale‘s
      Treehouse was also open.

17.       How is Frank Wells commemorated in Disneyland? C. The former President of the Disney
      corporation was an avid mountain climber, so it seemed fitting to create a memorial for him atop the
      Matterhorn.

18.        Where were the two locations of “Holidayland” in Disneyland? A. The more commonly-known
      Holidayland was the corporate picnic area outside the Main Gate, near the current home of the Pirates of
      the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion show buildings. The other was a plot of land where the Motor Boat
      Cruise and the Fantasyland Autopia would later find a home; it is for this reason that the Skyway hill was at
      one point called ―Holiday Hill.‖ The area had been used for the Mickey Mouse Club Circus and then later
      for the Junior Autopia.

19.        Where are the two first-aid stations located? B. Central First Aid, which is always open and staffed
      with a registered nurse and/or a doctor, is at the north end of Main Street. On busy days, there was formerly
      a secondary station opened and staffed; it was located behind the Brer Bar in Critter Country.
                                                 Section Two - Medium


20.        Which was the last E-Ticket ride added to Disneyland before the Park switched to a “Passport
      system”? C. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, which opened in 1979, three years before the passport
      system was inaugurated. Splash Mountain opened in 1989, Star Tours in 1987, Captain EO in 1986, Space
      Mountain in 1977, and the Submarine Voyage, which debuted in 1959, was the first E-Ticket ride.

21.        Where could we find Saddle-Sore Swanson? A. He was a character in America Sings, in the Western
      section of the attraction. Presumably, he was sore from sitting in the saddle of his horse! Here is his
      complete song: ―Well, come along boys and listen to my tale, and I‘ll tell you all my troubles on the old
      Chisolm Trail. Come ‗a tie yi yippie yippie yay. Come ‗a tie yi yippie yippie yay. Now, I went to the boss
      to draw my roll and he had me figured nine dollars in the hole. Ay, ay, ay, ay.‖

22.       Where is the center of the Disneyland property as surveyed in 1955? B. Sleeping Beauty Castle
      was the center of the property.

23.       What identical statue exists in both Main Street and Frontierland? D. Main Street and
      Frontierland both contain identical statues of an Indian.

24.        Where is the Disneyland time capsule? F. In the castle forecourt, near the giant compass, you can
      find the location marked as the home of the time capsule.

25.       What was the first 3D movie to play at Disneyland? B. ―3D Jamboree,‖ in the Fantasyland Theatre.
      This was followed in later years by the Magic Eye Theater in Tomorrowland, which was home to ―Magic
      Journeys,‖ ―Captain EO‖ and ―Honey, I Shrunk the Audience.‖

26.       Which A-list comedian used to work at Disneyland? F. Steve Martin, who worked in Merlin‘s
      Magic Shop in Fantasyland. There, his free spirit flourished amid the prankster attitude which characterized
      the Magic Shop, playing pranks on Guests and fellow workers.

27.        How many cemeteries are there in Disneyland? F. Eight. Along the Rivers of America (on the
      fenced-off part of the island) are the Indian burial grounds, near Fort Wilderness is one for settlers, inside
      the Frontierland Shooting Gallery, and there are no less than four at the Haunted Mansion: a pet cemetery
      greets Guests in line, followed by the humorous hillside cemetery, and then there is the graveyard finale
      within attraction. One more is hidden to all but special-assistance Guests, who enter through the western
      side of the building and see the original pet cemetery, which inspired the one other Guests can now see in
      the normal queue, and the 8th and final cemetery is outside Alice‘s cottage in Storybook Land.

28.        Where in Disneyland can one find drawings by Norman Rockwell? B. On Main Street, in the Walt
      Disney Story. Pencil sketches of Walt‘s two daughters, Sharon and Diane, hang in Walt‘s ―Formal Office.‖
      These are actually copies as his daughters wanted to hang on to the originals. Rockwell has another
      connection with Disney; it was his ―Saturday Evening Post‖ magazine covers that served as inspiration for
      the original miniature scenes done by Ken Anderson when the traveling exhibit ―Disneylandia‖ was first
      conceived.

29.        What Christmas tradition at Disneyland is more than forty years old? A. The Candlelight
      Procession. In the late 1990s Disneyland increasingly began to stress the Christmas season as a special time
      in the Magic Kingdom and to ―claim it‖ in the way that local parks Knott‘s Berry Farm and Six Flags
      Magic Mountain have ―claimed‖ Halloween. To that end, an increasing emphasis on atmosphere talent and
      decorating began to appear at Disneyland, and ―it‘s a small world‖ became ―it‘s a small world,‖ holiday on
      an annual basis. The Candlelight Procession continued as well, of course, but in the Fantasyland Theater
      instead of the traditional show in Town Square (and is now called the ―Candlelight Ceremony‖).
30.        Where was the Toy Story Funhouse located in 1996? F. At the Space Mountain Concourse, above
      the Magic Eye Theater and the Space Place. This temporary attraction reproduced the funhouse which had
      been located at the El Capitan theater, where Toy Story had had its premiere. Guests wound up the ramps
      (now the normal queue for Space Mountain) and at the top were given ―footstands‖ to tie onto their feet to
      turn each of them into an honorary ―Green Army Man.‖ Then, Guests entered the tent and navigated the
      pseudo-obstacle course (mostly painted floors and jungle gyms) before exiting out the other side.

31.        In terms of elevation, what was the highest Guest-accessible location at Disneyland in 1956? C.
      Surprisingly, the highest point then is now just somewhere in the middle in the range. Tom & Huck‘s Tree
      House on Tom Sawyer Island won top honors in 1956, before any of the Disneyland Mountain range
      existed and before Guests were allowed into Sleeping Beauty Castle in 1957.

32.        Who was the first Disneyland Ambassador? F. Julie Reihm (Caseletto), in 1965. The others were, in
      this order: 1966 Connie Swanson (Lane), 1967 Marcia Miner (Phillips), 1968 Sasha Sherbin, 1969 Shari
      Becos (Koch), 1970 Cathe Birk, 1971 Marva Dickson (Thomas), 1972 Emily Zinser, 1973 Bonnie Drury
      (Cook), 1974 Carol DeKeyser (Mezzano), 1975 Kathy Smith (Hall), 1976 Christina Schendel (Walker),
      1977 Susan Donald (Edwards), 1978 Raellen Lescault, 1979 Leona Dombroske (Ross), 1980 Nancy
      Englert (Murray), 1981 Willie Van Der Zwaag (Burckle), 1982 Joanne Crawford, 1983 Mindy Wilson,
      1984 Ellen Coleman (Marchese), 1985 Melissa Tyler, 1986 Barbara Warren, 1987 Kendra Howell, 1988
      Carolyn Long, 1989 Wendy Freeland (Shoeman), 1990 Jennifer Faust, 1991 Jill Ornelas, 1992 Suzanne
      Palmiter, 1993 Kathleen Mitts, 1994 Bonnie Delehoy, 1995 (the first year with multiple ambassadors):
      Michelle Tryon, Julia Onder, Gerry Aquino, 1996: Chris Allen, Gina Purugganan, Heather Thompson,
      Janet Tanasugarn, 1997: Robyn Schatz, Christina McGeorge, Cathie Milam, 1998: Oscar Carrasco,
      Dorothy Stratton, 1999: Dorell Mitter, Jennifer Simis (for an eighteen-month tenure), and mid-2000: Eddie
      Garcia and Doina Roman Osborn (also for an eighteen-month tenure).

33.        What were the “Disney Lights?” C. Giant colored synchrolite searchlights, hidden in various corners
      of the Park in 1994, that would trace patterns across the sky at key moments or when Disneyland closed.

34.        What is the name of the Disneyland Administration building opened in 1994? A. Team Disney
      Anaheim, or TDA. The naming scheme was begun in Burbank, the corporate headquarters, which housed
      the original ―Team Disney‖ building (this is the Michael Graves-designed building, with the dwarfs holding
      up the roof), and the theme park administrations then began to name their own headquarters in a similar
      fashion. The green and yellow TDA building sits backstage, along the Interstate 5 freeway, on the site of
      the former Global Van Lines building.

35.       Where are the monorails stored overnight? D. In the second story of the Roundhouse, a building
      backstage that is also home to the Disneyland Railroad trains.

36.        What foreign leader was denied admission to Disneyland in 1959? C. Nikita S. Khrushchev, then
      premier of the Soviet Union. He had wanted to visit, but the U.S. Secret Service determined they could not
      guarantee his safety, so he threw a temper tantrum by removing his shoe and pounding the table with it.
      Walt had planned to welcome him by showing him the Submarine Voyage, home of the eighth-largest sub
      fleet in the world!
