4-Foot tall Santa rides a Mean Machine!

Just built this and it runs great as you will see in the video. Hope it motivates some of you to get in the FE holiday spirit!

Something weird about that but could mainly be because there is no snow, some of us usualy have with sutff on the ground when we see him.....

Do you guys put something in the water? The turbulence from the prop look REALLY BLUE...

You are VERY alert! Yes, there is a chemical put into the lake to prevent high algae growth. I believe it is similiar to copper sulphate. It prevents the stocked frish from getting many diseases also and keeps down any surface bugs/insects. Looks a bit like tidy bowl.

There is a pre-school and playground on the other side of the lake. The kids love it and keep yelling, Santa, Santa. I have to admit they did get a bit scared when I drove my Great White shark fin by them and hit the blood injection system (red food coloring)!
