Way back at the very beginning of December, a small piece of the large mural/fresque covering the front of Crush's Coaster appeared for one day only. Now, two months later, the final article has arrived! The grey concrete facade of the dark-ride building has been soaked in blue and turquoise, with a full-length fresque featuring Crush and his turtle friends.,
The exciting unveiling today, captured by thebatman_1 in these photos posted on MagicForum, completes another piece of the puzzle for this new attraction, “turtally unique” to Paris.
The fresque is quite unlike anything used on a Disney attraction before, comparable only to the Hollywood backdrop on the Hyperion Theater at Disney’s California Adventure, or the billboard-style entrances of our own Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster or Studio Tram Tour.
It already appears a good attempt to solve the problem of how to theme a studio soundstage whilst still remaining within a “real working studio” theme, and with none of the vast expanses of bare walls seen elsewhere in the park upon its opening.
The covering to be used for the bare concerete walls still surrounding the main fresque on the front section of the building has yet to be confirmed.
