John opted for a little more conservative opponent, the Phillie Phanatic who went down in three pitches, then proceeded to argue with the umpire and kick dirt on home plate.  Classic.

Day two began with a press conference from Kuka, makers of the RoboCoaster which we have covered in years past.  On Thursday, they announced the RoboCoaster G2, a new robotic rollercoaster which they say will "change the face of amusement park rides"  Each RoboCoaster G2 car is like a "robot", able to spin, loop and move in ways that are not possible with traditional linked cars.  Here Christon Manzella, Key Technology Manager - US Entertainment for Kuka Robotics Corporation explains in detail how the ride would work and perform.

The folks at Kuka were kind enough to allow us to get in close to view this incredible new ride.  This new breed of theme park ride can do people movers, thrill rides and dark rides. It moves on 6 axis.  Wouldn't it be cool to see these floating over Disneyland's tomorrowland as a people mover?  Somebody call Mr. Eisner!

 Here Gino De-Gol, managing director at RoboCoaster, is animated while he explains some of the rides concepts and how it is easy to change and provide a brand new sensation every few years.   This extends life cycle of the ride or can provide a customized ride for each user.
