In the past, the Wheel would be automated in the show's opening and closing, even a few months into the now 20+ year-old electronic puzzle board.
My initial theories were they were controlled by motors in the Wheel's base, or even by a computer in the control room.
But there's another theory on my mind...wind tunnels. I know, you're gonna ask, "John, how can a wind tunnel propel something as heavy as the Wheel?" Well, you all know that wind tunnels propel jet engines and helicopter propellers. If they can propel those, they can probably propel anything that can spin...except probably Price's Big Wheel (first off, it's a vertical wheel; second, the spaces are seen from the front; and third, it's a pretty heavy wheel compared to the Wheel).

About 14 years ago I watched an episode of Millionaire where I saw a contestant get a question about how many gifts there were in the song about the 12 Days of Christmas. He guessed 78, as did I, but both of us were shocked to find out it was 364.
You're wondering how we both guessed 78: Simple, the first line in each verse (i.e. the partridge on the first day, turtle doves on the second, etc.).
Now, the question is: how in the world was it 364, and where did we go wrong? Comment below. Gameshowguy2000 (talk) 04:28, December 21, 2018 (UTC)Read more >
Recently, I happened to find this video of a then 21-year-old (now 27, judging from the upload's date) getting a visit from Santa.
However, as much as I, and other autistic Santa-believers wanted the conversation about the video to be peaceful, some person who was very anti-autistic, started bashing the person in the video, the autistic people commenting in it, and myself. Needless to say, I was not happy.
Now, you know that I and my fellow members William, Brandon, as well as Video Archivist and admin Daniel are all autistic as well as Santa believers. And we all know one thing: It's one thing to believe in Santa. It's one thing not to believe in Santa. But it's another to bash those who do believe.
You're wondering, "John, where are you going wit…Read more >
OK, I am glad to announce that I am officially a member of the Frozen watchers club (instead of the Wheel Watchers Club; though honestly, next time they go to WDW, they could use the characters/actors to introduce Pat and Vanna; wouldn't hurt, would it?).
For those who don't know, it's based on the Hans Christen Anderson tale The Snow Queen. But, given that most everyone's seen the movie to this point, I'll just go straight to my review.
It's a great movie, and like everyone else who finishes watching it the first time, you'll won't be able to let go (no pun intended) of "Let It Go". And there's a reprise version of the movie song for the stage show at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. In fact, every time I bring it up at work, some of my co-…Read more >
"Santa is not real."
Yes, you heard right. And you wonder why you don't hear me do it.
Simple...do you really want me ruining anyone's holiday season around here?! I certainly don't.
If you need the proof he exists, here it is:
So if anyone asks for proof, the proof came from me.
