That's a cool little sign for the "Moon Flume" in the shot. And it looks like one of the old ticket booths (turned information booths) behind it as well.

Yeah, I was trying to figure that out too. It looks like a directions sign since it's a distance from the ride entrance (I think). Maybe something about it being across the train tracks?

It almost looks like those blue Moon Flume signs with arrows could be removed and reinserted so that the arrows pointed in the opposite direction. Maybe they rerouted the flume ride line depending upon how long it was? Maybe the lower words refer to the wait time?
