The temptation to NOT stake it down properly on a windy day would be very strong.

When this thing eventually needs to be patched, I hope the patches are mynock shaped.

Dang it, I can’t believe that I worked on a project that spent years of time and many millions of dollars to make a Millennium Falcon experience when this (clearly superior) design was an option all along!

But very apt. Get ready for takeoff.

Yes, but can it make the Kessel Run in 15 parsecs?

I am so beyond fed up with Star Wars saturation at this point, this barely got me to click through, but this little bit…

As the dad who was always in the bounce house with the kids, this would be very, very fun. I hope Chewie is full-size (he was like 7 feet tall or something). Watching all the little kids sock him in the furry bits would just be endlessly entertaining.

I’m sad, did your’s ever get built?

Yep. It opened to the public last summer and has had over 6 million riders since then. It’s pretty good, I guess, but it’s no bounce house.

Imagine the erotic cosplay possibilities.

Or not, as you prefer.

You and me and countless others.

Nice phrase: “Star Wars Saturation” … about midway between a good name for a band, and a bad label in the DSM.

Also, it has ROOMS? I want this so much. That actually looks like an amazing price for such a large and detailed balloon.

I’d say not… although an explosive rupture could rocket it down the Elm Street Run in 2000 feet.

One good Mynock bite and that thing is toast.
