The music hasn't been working for a while now... maybe since last year? The Red Flanders bit was working a couple months ago though.

FM has all kinds of funny business that goes on with the manaquins. The moving parts seem to like breaking off. If you ride it a bunch throughout the year and keep track, there's so much stuff that moves around and gets fixed/broken. Just part of the nature of that old style of ride with the budget it's been given.

I was thinking the music was working during our visit in December last year. Maybe not ? And , yes The Flooded Mine is a moving target so to speak. I just wish there was enough maintenance budget to get it right. Especially during its 50th year.
