Sounds Dangerous!

Sounds Dangerous! was an audio show at Echo Lake inside Disney's Hollywood Studios starring comedian Drew Carey. The presentation took place inside an ABC soundstage with theater-style seating. Guests were told that the show was an ABC test pilot called Undercover Live. Guests wore headphones and were in the dark for the majority of the show, however visuals were also utilized on a projection screen in front of the guests. Drew Carey played an undercover detective named Foster. In early 2009, it was announced that this attraction would operate seasonally. The image of Drew Carey along with the attraction's name was removed from the entrance's marquee and the screen was turned off, indicating the closure of the attraction, which meant that Disney closed the attraction on May 18, 2012, renaming it as ABC Sound Studio (which was also the name of the show that preceded Sounds Dangerous![1]), and redressing it as the temporary "Carbon Freeze Me" attraction for the park's annual Star Wars Weekends event.[2][3]
