    If I lived in the Orlando area I'd definitely invest in a annual pass.

    Notice of the clearance was issued Tuesday.

    @JohnAskew: The lightsabre is clearly a rip off of the glowing sword Frodo had in Lord of the Rings. I will be urging the Tolkein estate to protect their clear rights to anything of rod-like proportions that luminesces.

    @GoddersUK: thats like when metallica tried to copyright certain musical notes. its a free flowing (and pretty damn cool) idea. Its like the angel of death, carries a flaming sword (in essence luminescent). my point is, it spoils the fun if they go around trying to sue everyone for using something similair to them.
