Performance Artist will do Carousel of Progress Marathon

Orlando area Performance Artist Brian Feldman, who last leap year spent February 29th leaping on a ladder, will spend this Friday doing an 11 hour marathon of the Magic Kingdom’s Carousel of Progress.

Feldman, 29, says he’ll spend Friday entering and re-entering the attraction, which features four scenes following Animatronic families through various decades. His favorite part was always the finale.

“I’ve always been partial to the future, so it’s always been Act 4 – whatever the update was,” he says.

“I really enjoy it all. It’s a genuine emotion I have toward the attraction.”

This Friday marks the 35th Anniversary of the attraction opening at Walt Disney World, however, it had its debut at the 1964 World’s Fair.

I know people who have done similar things when attractions opened or closed. I wish him luck and the ability to survive hours of boredom.
