    I Crashed My Lionel Polar Express Train Set!

    January 17, 2020

    The UPS guy brought me something interesting today. It’s a very inexpensive G scale model train set.
    One of my YouTube viewers told me about it. Now, if you were to buy a G scale starter
    set from a company like LGB… That would typically set you back three or four
    hundred dollars, but this set was under a hundred. That’s so cheap, I figured what the heck!
    Let’s just order one I’ll make
    a video about it for YouTube. But there is, of course, a catch.
    In fact, there’s several catches! So, let’s just unbox it. We’ll take a look at it
    and see what kind of compromises that they had
    to make to get the price under $100. This is a Polar Express train set.
    You know, the classic Christmas story…
    started as a book in 1985… And then became an animated
    movie with Tom Hanks in 2004. Now I’m pretty sure that Lionel didn’t design
    this for a 60 year old guy like me to add to
    his collection of G scale model trains. I think the idea was more that a 60 year old guy like me
    would buy it for his four-year-old grandchild as a way
    to introduce them into model trains. I didn’t even know that Lionel made G-scale stuff at all.
    I thought they were just in to O and HO. But since they say that this is G scale,
    I’m hoping that I can get it to run on my big layout… That’s made up of LGB-brand metal track.
    Let’s see if it works! So, what comes in the box is the locomotive and
    a tender, and then two of these passenger cars… A remote control to operate it,
    and a whole bunch of this plastic track. Now this is one of the big compromises
    that they’ve made.
    It’s plastic. It doesn’t conduct electricity. This kind of locomotive doesn’t get
    electricity through the rails like a
    normal G scale train would get. This has a bunch of batteries inside of it.
    Six C cell batteries to run it… And then two more AA batteries in the
    remote control to operate that. So, it’s not getting power through the track
    like a regular G-scale locomotive would. Now, speaking of regular G-scale locomotives, OK… This may look good here by itself,
    but when you put it up against a
    real LGB-brand G-scale locomotive… You can see that we’re talking
    about a big difference in size. And I don’t know if it comes across on camera,
    but a huge difference in quality. As you would expect…
    This being a hundred dollar set,
    and this being about a $900 locomotive on its own. But this is like toy quality,
    and this is the genuine article right here. But the question that’s killing me…
    and especially more so now that I see
    the size difference between these two locomotives… They say that this is a G-scale set.
    I’m really wondering…
    Is this going to run on my LGB track?
    Let’s find out! Here’s the locomotive.
    Let me line it up with the track. Oh no!
    Oh, it looked good on this side
    when I lined this side up. But it is totally hanging off the side over here. This is not standard G scale width.
    This is wider than regular G-scale. It doesn’t fit on that track.
    So, I’m not going to be able to lay my…
    I’ve got hundreds of feet of LGB track… I’m not going to be able to
    run this on that.
    It’s… it’s just a different size. That is a big problem, because I was really hoping
    to be able to run this under battery power
    on all my existing track. So, now I’m going to have to
    put this plastic track together
    and run it as a whole separate thing… Independent from the rest of my G-scale stuff.
    That’s too bad, and that’s a disappointment. OK, I’ve got it all set up.
    We’re going to make it work. The true test for me of whether
    something is designed well… Is whether you can make it work without reading
    the owner’s manual and without any tools. And unfortunately, this failed on both counts.
    I needed a Phillips screwdriver… To be able to open the battery compartment on
    the locomotive and also to be able to open the
    battery compartment on the remote control. And the other thing was
    I couldn’t figure out how the batteries
    went into the locomotive. So, I did have to read the owner’s manual
    to figure that out. So, that was a fail there. But now it should be all set to go.
    So, we’re going to power it on. There’s a power switch on the locomotive itself,
    and also on the remote control. If you turn on the power switch on the locomotive,
    it beeps like that until you turn on
    the power switch on the remote control. Now, the fun part! OK, on the remote you’ve got some controls. (bell clangs) A bell. Nice sound effects! (steam whistle blows) A steam whistle.
    Another good sound effect! And check this out! (Conductor announcement)
    That’s fun. Now we can either turn it to forward or to reverse. And there’s not enough room on my kitchen table here
    to make a full loop… So, I hope it’s very responsive after I start it and
    then try to stop it before it runs off the end of the table. (Sound of steam train chugging) OH! (laughing)
    For a minute there, I thought it was going
    to go right off the end! When I turned it to off,
    it didn’t immediately stop.
    But it stopped in time. All right, here’s reverse. (sound of steam train chugging) Nice steam train sounds there.
    All right, so I like that. So, I guess the next step is we’ll set it up on the floor.
    I’ll use all the track that came with the set. It’s enough track to go around
    a Christmas tree at Christmas time.
    I’m pretty sure that’s what the whole point is. (Conductor announcement)
    THIS IS THE POLAR EXPRESS! (sound of steam train chugging and whistle blowing) Even though I’m disappointed that I can’t run
    this supposed G-scale train on my
    existing G-scale tracks… I have to admit that once I put the Lionel tracks
    down on my living room floor and started
    running the train, I had fun. For less than $100, it’s certainly a tremendous value. The working headlight on the front of
    the locomotive is a nice touch. The best part is the sound.
    The “all aboard” announcement is fun and
    the bell and whistle sound effects are even better. (Sound of a steam train whistle) Also, the chugging sound of the train in motion. Now you certainly get much better sound effects
    on a real G-scale setup,
    but at this price what you get really is impressive. One other feature I haven’t mentioned yet
    is that the locomotive can operate at
    your choice of three speeds. I’ve been running it at the low speed, so far. Here’s the medium speed. (Chugging sound is faster than before) And now here is the highest
    speed setting for the locomotive. (Chugging sound is even faster than before) Of course, you use the remote control to set the speed.
    Once you’ve picked the speed you want… You can set the remote control down and
    the train will just keep operating at that speed. I have no idea how long it would go
    on one set of batteries. I would definitely look into
    buying some rechargeables if I was you. One negative thing that jumps out at me
    is the way the train lurches to a start
    when you first start it moving. (Sound of a steam train whistle) That’s a very unrealistic start up.
    Too bad they couldn’t figure out a way to get it to
    gradually start moving from the stopped position. That’s a problem you wouldn’t have
    if you had spent three or four times the cost
    of this set to get a real G scale starter set. Now, because running this train around and around
    this oval over and over again
    gets a little boring after a while… Be aware that you can buy
    more of this plastic track and even switches. And it’s all pretty affordable
    since it’s all made from plastic.
    It seems pretty durable, too. (Sound of the train’s bell) You know that it’s just a matter of time
    before any kid you give this set to
    will stage a train crash on purpose! So, for my big finale…
    let’s do a train crash! I know…
    that wasn’t a very good train crash. Seemed like a funny idea.
    Maybe it would be funnier with music… (Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” plays and repeated
    train crashes are synchronized with the cannon sounds) 20 years of experience editing videos
    and I think I finally nailed one! Well, in the end, this inexpensive little
    toy train set did win me over . If you’ve got a budget of $100
    and want to give a really great gift
    to some four to ten year old kid… I think you’d be hard-pressed to do better than this. Now, I think it goes without saying…
    but I’ll say it anyway… Don’t buy this for an adult
    and don’t buy this for anyone that
    already owns some real G scale track. But if you’ve got a kid, or a grandkid,
    or a niece or a nephew in that
    four to ten year old age group… Or even if you don’t,
    but you like the idea of running
    a train around the Christmas tree… …without investing three to four hundred dollars
    or more in a real G scale setup… I think I really can recommend
    Lionel’s Polar Express train set to you. I just refuse to say that it’s G scale,
    because it really isn’t. Now if you want to buy
    one of these Polar Express train sets,
    just click on the link that should
    be on screen right now Or if you don’t see a link on the screen,
    look below in the description or the comments. Also, if you know someone that you think might be
    interested in one of these bargain-priced train sets… Click on the “share” button
    and share this video with them. The “share” button is the one that looks
    like an arrow with a goofy hook to it. Of course, I’ve got many more videos planned
    for the coming months, so subscribe to my channel
    if you want to make sure that you don’t miss any. I’ll continue to make videos about model trains… But I’ve also got some really interesting vacations coming up on cruise ships.
    So, there’ll be some new cruise videos coming this Fall. For now, I’ll leave you with
    four suggested videos to take a look at… Three about model trains, and one about an amazing vacation we took on a cruise ship earlier this year. I’m Jim Zim.
    Leave a comment in the video, if you’d like.
    I read them all! It’s always interesting to hear what
    people have to say about these videos.

    Double Decker Bus Videos For Children | Gecko’s Real Vehicles

    January 14, 2020

    Hello Everyone! Woah look at that! That isn’t just any bus. That’s a Double Decker bus! Look, there’s a downstairs AND an upstairs! I’m just waiting at a bus stop for the next
    bus to arrive. All you have to do to catch a bus is put your
    hand out like this, and the bus will stop. This is Brian, and he’s the driver of this
    bus. He sits in a place called the cab. Here it comes now! Brian presses this button, and the doors fold
    open! This bus is special because it can move up
    and down to let people get on more easily. Red mechanical, where’ve you been on this
    bus? You’ve been playing in the junkyard? Oh well, I hope you had fun! Come on! Let’s get on board. You can fit up to 75 people on this double
    decker bus. I think I’m going to sit upstairs for the
    lovely views. Woo, I can see everything up here!! The Wheels on The Bus Go Round and Round
    Round and Round Round and Round
    The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round All Day Long Here we are back at the Bus depot. I’ll just press the bell to ask the driver
    to stop. Shall we have a closer look at the controls
    here in the cab? The driver can press all sorts of buttons
    to make things happen. This button controls the sign on the front
    of the bus, which tells people where the bus is going to. This is the ticket machine And these screens are connected to cameras
    so the driver can see the passengers upstairs. These buses travel all over the city, so they
    sometimes get very dirty. Shall we put this double decker bus through
    the special bus wash to give it a clean? It’s time to use the water and brushes,
    To clean our double decker buses! Through this truck wash our bus will crawl,
    Have you ever seen a bus so tall?! Look at that, clean as a whistle! Where do you think the engine is in this double
    decker bus? Surprise! It’s here right at the back, and these buses
    are special because they run on electricity and diesel. When the bus is going slowly and picking up
    people from bus stops, the bus uses an electric motor. This makes it much quieter than other buses. Just be careful not to fall asleep on your
    way home! But even these buses need to be repaired sometimes. Instead of bringing them to Gecko’s Garage,
    they are brought here to the Arriva Maintenance Garage where expert mechanics can repair them. Look how many buses are being worked on at
    the same time. This bus is having a wheel changed! And Here’s another bus driving into the
    garage. It drives in and parks over a big hole in
    the floor called The pit. If there’s something wrong underneath the
    bus, a mechanic can go down into the pit, and fix anything whilst standing underneath! OR they can use a giant hydraulic lift to
    lift a double decker bus up and make it even taller! When everything is fixed on the bus, it’s
    time to leave the garage and go back out on the road to take more passengers where they
    need to go. I’ve loved learning all about double decker
    buses today. Thanks so much to Brian and all the team
    at Arriva buses. We’ll see you again soon, Byeee!!

    $10,000 HOT WHEELS TRACK CHALLENGE! Hot Wheels Box Fort Obstacle Course

    January 2, 2020

    hey guys this video was sponsored by Hot
    Wheels who helped me create it let’s go to Bob Jake BAM it’s Papa Jake here and
    we are back with a brand new video and today guys it is a very special day it
    is like Christmas day here at the Papa Jake household because when I woke up
    this morning I went outside and I looked on my porch and out there we had a
    massive shipment that just came in from all those guys check this out they sent
    us a ton and when I’m in Nutella I mean literally a spawn of Hot Wheels track
    builder sets there is a bunch of cars a bunch of tracks here and guys logos on
    here right now but today we actually decided that we would do a challenge
    with all of this for my side of the challenge I’m kind of keeping some of
    the Hot Wheels stuff on the side because I want to win this challenge so this is
    what I’m telling Logan came in the mail but this is what I actually came in the
    mail check this out guys Logan gets in here I’m gonna challenge him to a track
    build up he’s not gonna know what hit him when we break out this box guys
    today we receive an amazing massive shipment of hot wheels I’ve never seen
    so many hot wheels in my life a million loop-de-loops there is so many cars guys
    like race cars there’s big monster trucks here which is good it’s a big
    truck and these are all stuff we get to use for building our tracks now Logan I
    decided that if we have all this stuff here I think we do a little Papa Jake
    versus Logan challenge you know who could build the bigger the better
    Hot Wheels track I’ve been building Hot Wheels since I was like nine years old
    since I was we call it this Oh Logan I’m at like sixty loop-de-loops I’m gonna
    have a massive long stretch I might have a an up
    down and the zigzag it all around my home was tracks to be better and not
    only that but I’m also a better racer than so why don’t we start by dividing
    all the Hot Wheels stuff and then we go pick our cars okay guys we went ahead
    and divided all the Hot Wheels gear Logan’s got his over here I’ve got mine
    over here and you know Logan because I’m feeling so confident I decided you could
    have this bad boy here so I’ll let you have this cuz I’m gonna win this thing
    anyway very generous of you Jake but I wouldn’t get too confident there is a
    ton of awesome car sitting I’ve got to pick the best one that reflects
    ourselves so oh it’s a it’s a it’s hard to pick man there’s so many good ones
    but I think I’m gonna go with this one this little bit awesome dude check that
    out here we go guys I got my car here it’s blue it’s got like the Papa Jake
    blue and love it’s looking pretty fly just like me and it’s got like this is
    kind of like detail around the wheels here which looks sweet and I love like
    the red accent up top also by the way guys kind of cool fact if you actually
    look at the bottom here so you can see the Hot Wheels logo that’s how you know
    it’s a legitimate haul in this car so you know we know it’s legit we know it’s
    gonna go fast but yeah I think it’s gonna be mine looking what do you want I
    think I’m gonna go for this chrome one this one is by far my favorite it looks
    so cool this one also caught my eye guys a little airplane it’s so cool it’s
    gonna cute but I think it’s time Logan you go to your room I go to my room we
    start the timer and build our traps oh it’s on Jake okay guys I thought I
    mean like a lot more I kind of feel bad we gave Logan so little I did not think
    there was this much stuff in here there’s literally so many pieces of
    tracks so many different kids here any bunch of different add-ons I kind of
    feel bad taking all of this alright guys so I thought I’d build my track inside
    this room and to start off my track I thought I’d use this awesome rad launch
    wheel of the car and we give it one crank and just like
    that we ever started all right guys you check it out I’ve been working on the
    Hot Wheels track for a little while now and this thing is looking sweet guys
    this transforms into this check this out how cool is this guys so it actually
    transforms into this massive drops in here so I was thinking over here we have
    like a massive Canyon jump so you have to go from one table to another you have
    to make it from this table all the way across over to there and we still have a
    ton of Hot Wheels stuff that we can add to this but but without further ado guys
    I’m gonna show you guys how this works right now give it a little tank here Oh guys it just shoots my car out of there
    extreme that that thing was going like Lightspeed so some of the cars go a lot
    faster than others and getting the perfect speed to do this track is what’s
    important obviously we’re gonna be expanding the track a lot Oh the other side I think already this
    track is gonna be beaten Logan I still want to add some more loop two loops and
    obviously I’ve got the massive jump canyon over there but this thing is
    looking sweet alright guys so far I’ve built a decent
    amount of track but guys I have something on my sleeve I know about
    Jake’s secret box and all the extra track that he got but what he doesn’t
    know is Hot Wheels actually sent two of those massive boxes and I have one of my
    own so here’s my box full of Hot Wheels track so I was thinking of heading
    downstairs and making the world’s biggest and longest track because I know
    Jake’s gonna go for loop-de-loops and jobs and you know an intricate track but
    from my track I’m gonna go with distance Jake thinks this is all the track we
    have but he is gonna be very surprised when he sees my track so it is
    officially the next day and me and Logan have both been working on our Hot Wheels
    tracks almost all night man we were up pretty late there was a lot to do but
    guys it is finally time without further ado to show off both of our fault wheels
    tracks and to have the ultimate Hot Wheels challenge to see who is the
    master Hot Wheels racer well Jake just take a look down below oh I did not
    notice that when I went to bed last night all right guys so here’s my track
    okay all right you know what I’ll give you credit Logan where credit is due
    this looks pretty sweet now it doesn’t look like it has as many loop-de-loops
    is mine but uh Jake this track is not about loop-de-loops it is about distance
    so as you can see this track goes really really far oh it does it goes office
    jumped into the basketball mag I guess I’ll give you a quick tour so you start
    on top of this box you put the car there yeah just go sit go the whole thing it
    does go the whole way three two one so it comes around this corner through the
    tunnel and into the leap turn where’d you get these leaves uh-huh I went
    outside all right like it’s got a nice little fall or two it looks pretty good
    so it comes around the turn into a loop-de-loop and through a tunnel then
    once you go through the tunnel you come through the disco turn which leads leads
    you right into the loop-de-loop and I’m talking a little roller coaster up down
    up down straight to the hand-crank which gives you a massive speed boost off the
    job and into the basketball net dude this
    thing is sweet III got my car picked out I want to try it I wanna see if I can
    make it through the entire thing in three two the hand crank – is that track I think I might track
    might be yours oh you know give you credit I like how long this track is I
    like how everything works really well but I think you’re gonna be pleasantly
    surprised my tracks more of a stunt track so let’s head upstairs and check
    out my next because Logan I think it might give this a little run for its
    money so Logan thing was awesome but now it’s
    time to step up the game alright now it’s time to supercharge our Hot Wheels
    tracks welcome to Papa Jake’s Hot Wheels of
    Museum Park oh yeah guys check this out baby what oh yeah I’ve converted the
    entire room into a halt wheels playground we have multiple tracks set
    up different stunt levels different obstacles loop-d-loop here loop-d-loop
    there Luke do you loop everywhere okay I actually wasn’t expecting this this is
    pretty impressive you know I’ve been working on this for a long time and
    there is a ton of really cool stuff in here so basically what a great staff do
    that I’ve got a main track over here I’ve got the dual race track over here a
    epic jump son over there was honestly pretty cool and then a triple
    loop-de-loop I call the Papa J of loops over there whoa I’m happy now if it was
    a challenge come on one but anyway I think you won in the department of
    loop-de-loops and stuff but I definitely be you in the department of longest
    track I think we’ll start off on the main race here which is the primary
    track for my vehicle I’ve chosen this dude it’s a purple dude he’s looking
    pretty sweet ready in three two one knocked over the water bottle all right
    well it looks like it achieved the Papaji tract of Awesomeness I guess it’s
    your turn on this Logan I’m gonna use this massive truck what what wait what
    this massive truck Logan I don’t think that’s gonna that’s gonna do the
    loop-de-loops and then the stygians and boom booms are the judge this thing’s
    huge in three two one well my big truck
    didn’t really work out too well all right you going for the green guy come
    on got a duel race over here the loopty-loop or the jump which one do you
    want Logan I gotta try the loop-de-loop that looks really fun all right let’s
    try that guys the triple loop-de-loop down to another loop-de-loop down to
    another lu2 off a jump you got the purple green and blue so uh let’s see
    how this does on our triple loop-de-loop first stop is gonna be blue ID let’s see
    if you’ve got it any of three two one oh okay watch it in three two one dude actually out of all my cars I think
    purple is my favorite now I think we can have an actual challenge Logan because
    over here I’ve got the dual racer check this out No
    does that double loop de loop which is sweet but down here we got one of these
    hot wheels finish line so it actually tells you who wins
    so you set it up like that so for example if vlogging goes through and
    hits it number four is a winner and that means Logan wins these are the pusher
    systems and basically what’s gonna happen is me and Logan will load up our
    cars here and then you’re gonna want to hit it not too hard but not too slow and
    that’s gonna decide who wins the race so we’ll both go on the count of three like
    three two one blue car and I got my purple car are you set it up in here so
    let’s see who wins this race we got the camera set up on the other side and of
    course we’ll be able to tell by the number at the end like I’m number one
    you’re number four let’s start the race we’re doing best two out of three so
    whoever wins will of you win this then you win but if I wouldn’t we go to the
    final round three two one we go to the final round overtime in 3 2
    1 do we close match man that is sweet
    actual of this one and it’s a lot of fun to see each other race side by side but
    car it’s so good but okay Logan that’s not it we have one final section and
    this section I saved for last because it is my personal favorite it is the epic
    jump of glory you send it down here through the quadruple loop to loop out
    into the booster where it picks up a ton of speed and I mean it’s fun speed as
    things are super phat goes off the jump through our ladder obstacle course jump
    and then if you’re lucky and succeed you hit a bunch of these cups knock them
    over to win in three two one so close all right I think it needs a
    little bit more power but we almost be true this time I’m gonna use the green
    carcass a little bit heavier stuff knock the wall down guys that was sick
    but guys I think this is where we’re gonna wrap up this video for today and
    of course a huge shout out to Hot Wheels for sponsoring this video we had so much
    fun and will of course see all of you guys in the next video

    The Polar Night #AD | HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON

    December 23, 2019

    – [Narrator] Thanks to
    Dreamworks Animation for funding this video. (somber flute music) (dragon roars) (soft footsteps) – Hey, guys. I was thinking
    today, we should… Whoa, what’s wrong?
    (melancholic music) The atmosphere in here is dark. – It is dark, feels like
    it will always be dark. – Tuffnut, Ruffnut,
    you feeling okay? – The show is over, the
    curtains have closed. Our heroes know they
    will never feel okay. – Toothless, bud, should we
    head out and stretch your wings? (Toothless roars sadly) What is going on
    with everyone today? – It’s not their fault, it’s the beginning
    of the polar night. – What’s the polar night? – It’s the opposite
    of the midnight sun! For two weeks, the
    sun never fully rises, and we’ll be trapped in an
    almost constant darkness. – And that’s… bad. – Without light, both people and dragons will
    feel slow, sluggish and sad. – Are you sure? – Look around. (snoring) (Snoutlout cries) – Okay… I believe you! Uh, Astrid, can I talk
    with you for a second? – What is it now? – Astrid, we have
    to do something! The polar night is really
    messing with New Berk! Everyone’s acting like they’ll
    never see the sun ever again! We have to help them see
    that it’s not so bad. – But what can we do? – Not sure yet, but we
    have to think of something. (air whooshing) (upbeat confident music) Snoutlout, Hookfang! Just the
    pair we’ve been looking for! – What do you want? (Hookfang growls) – We were thinking, since you’ve had so much
    success with hypnotism, maybe you could put those
    skills to good use and hypnotize the villagers
    into realizing the polar night will be over
    soon and there’s no reason to feel so bad. – So, does this mean I get
    to hypnotize Fishlegs again? – Yup. – Okay great,
    let’s try this out! (air whooshing)
    (snoring) – And when I snap my
    fingers, you’ll be back to your normal self. And you won’t be affected
    by the polar night anymore. (snaps fingers)
    (melancholic music) (snores) (snaps fingers) – Um, is he supposed to wake up? – It must be the polar night! He’s too sleepy to wake
    up out of his trance! – Don’t worry, I
    have another idea! (air whooshing) Ruffnut, Tuffnut,
    Barf and Belch! Just who we’ve been looking for. – What do you want? – We were thinking, since
    you’re such talented actors, maybe you could put
    those skills to good use. We could put on a play
    to remind the citizens of New Berk of all the
    wonderful things about winter. – I can’t think of a single
    thing I like about winter. – Just come to
    rehearsal tomorrow and
    we’ll figure it out. (air whooshing) – Eh hem, thank you everyone
    for coming to rehearsal, I can tell you’re
    all very excited. (snoring)
    (crickets chirping) – Okay… well, Hiccup and I have been brainstorming our
    favorite things about winter. – (sighs loudly) Like what? – Like, being able to see the stars all the
    time during the polar night. – Meh, I’ve seen enough stars. – Getting under a
    pile of warm blankets? – My bed is a damp
    pile of straw. – Sledding with your dragon? – Barf and Belch won’t let us
    use them as a sled anymore! (dragons snores) See? – Okay can we at
    least get everyone to wake up and get on the stage? Tuffnut? Tuffnut! (Tuffnut snores) I’m not sure this is working. – Don’t worry, I’ve got an idea. (air whooshing) Toothless, Stormfly! Just the dragons we’ve
    been looking for! (Toothless growls) Come on bud. Wake up! We’ve got some training to do. – You too Stormfly! We need you! – Everyone in the village
    is feeling down because of the lack of light, and it’s up to us to remind them that light
    will come again to New Berk. (Toothless growls) I know you’re tired but
    everyone is counting on us! (Toothless growls) Toothless, how many
    adventures have we been on? We’ve flown all
    over the islands, we’ve fought in
    countless battles, and we’ve never yet failed
    the citizens of New Berk. You’ve always trust me, bud. I need you to trust me now. Are you with me? (Toothless growls loudly) I knew I could count on you! – Let’s go! (air whooshing) (dragon growling) Do you hear something? – Look! (fire crackling) (upbeat dramatic music) (air whooshing) – Whoa! – My eyes! – It’s… beautiful. (wings flapping) – Hey, Hookfang,
    you come back here! – No, let him go, they’re
    creating light for us. (fire crackling) – I don’t know why but
    suddenly I have more energy! – More energy to get you down! (attacking noises) (fire crackling) (air whooshing)
    (Toothless growls) – Did it work? – Do you feel better? – I think we can
    say with certainty that this darkness
    won’t last forever. And as long as we
    have our dragons, we’ll never be without
    light in Newk Berk. (dragon roaring) (everyone cheering) (air whooshing)
