Just listened to this episode and loved it. As a tween I got stuck on the Carousel of Progress after getting on the ride to get out of the rain. A thunderstorm caused a power outage that disabled the mechanism that moved the seats to the next section, but the animatronics kept the programmed cycle. I saw the "future" 25-30 times before we could get out of the Carousel. This happened in 1982 and I still have nightmares!
