I've amended this post on 12/3/16 to say that, after some time away, I'm back to continue this thread.

I don't know when this story will ever end! :-)

As before:

If any readers out there have anything at all about Frontierland Morecambe that they wish to add or share, please email me, Gary, at themagiceye@aol.com and I'll include them in this ongoing (not so) mini project with credit of course.

Many Thanks!

Gary

Howdy folks,

I'm Lukas (please call me Luke) 19 years old and a big animatronic-enthusiast from Germany and I just like to ask if someone here remembers the animatronic-bear show in Frontierland, Morecambe, and could maybe tell me how it was or maybe has footage of it?

Here's a good picture of the outside of the theatre "OPERA HOUSE" where the show was in:
