Lights, Motors, Action!

Yes, that is a car blasting out of a building in the picture. It's all part of the epic stunt spectacular that is Lights, Motors, Action! All of this goes down at MGM in the WDW.

Lights, Motors, Action! didn't really seem like my thing. I'm not into cars. But, the show is actually all about car stunts and car chases and other movie stunts. It's like The Transporter, except without Jason Statham (which is totally tragic).

So, you go into this huge stadium and soon enough cars are revving up their engines and racing around the stage. Then there's some motorcycles, then there's some gun shots, then something EXPLODES! You can feel the heat. Then we get to some jet skis and some people fall off of buildings and then someone gets lit on fire and then something major happens (it may or may not be another EXPLOSION). It's super awesome.

One hint...sitting in this stadium is mad hot. They cram about a thousand people into this place and part of it is covered, but part of it isn't (note...sit in the covered part). My mom and I were there in September one year and it was about 90 degrees outside. We got there about 30 minutes before the show started and had to sit in the stagnant heat. It was awful. They have about 5 fans towards the top of the bleachers and I would sit somewhere in the breeze of the fan. You will thank me.

4/5 or 8/10. It's a good show, but the bleacher seats are uncomfortable and hot.
