Disneyland Hercules Parade Model, 1997

My original plastic and wood model based on Jody Daily's float concept for the "Hercules Victory Parade" which ran at Disneyland in 1997. Jody's idea was for a deadly carnival ride, with Hades' henchmen Pain and Panic screeching around on a rickety roller coaster track, in and out of metal doors at the front and rear of the float. Medusa's gaping mouth conjured a fun-house tunnel, while a giant rusted iron figure of Hades had spinning saw blades on the ends of its arms. A costumed performer as the "real" Hades stood on a pedestal in the center of the scene.


We loved the soundtrack for this unit, which consisted of psychotic circus music and the constant screaming of the characters riding the little roller-coaster. It was pretty funny...
