When you were seated, you could easily reach towards the center and touch the light bulbs the adorned the ride itself. Unfortunately, guests would unscrew the bulbs and take them as souvenirs, but the real danger became all those empty sockets which guests could stick their fingers in. (Some guests aren't too swift!)
Ultimately, the bulbs were covered with a plastic sleeve, at least up to the point where they couldn't be reached. The two photos below show the lights before (with several bulbs missing) and after (with the plastic covers).

That is the upper guardrail of Freefall sporting its original brown and blue paint job.

Anyone who ever drove down to Disney on I-95 knows it well! There used to be billboards along the highway telling you how many miles you were from South of the Border, and each one was more elaborate than the last. They've cut back a lot on them, but in the 70's and 80's it was part of the Disney experience to all of us who drove down on vacation!

They were also famous for their bumper stickers:
Everyone would stop at SOB on their way to Disney for their kids to take a rest stop after seeing all their billboards. While you parked in their lot, they had guys go around and put their bumper stickers on your car. You could always tell who in this area went to Disney from those bumper stickers. There were a lot of them on station wagons with faux wood grain paneling:

Hey Tom, here's a challenge for January... get a picture of all the SOTB billboards on the way to Florida from the car. What a beautiful collection that would make!
