We hated the addition of that stupid spinner. Needs to just go away completely.
For a park that needs all the walking space it can get, putting that in the center was dumb. But of course that was, what, 2001? So crowds weren't quite the same at the time, but man that takes up a lot of space. Not against said spinner (I'd prefer an Aladdin dark ride but that's me), but it's placement is bad. I get at the time their thing was spinners at the center (Tomorrowland in Disneyland, I'm looking at you) of the land but ugh ...
Let's also not forget all the fountains that are now planters, especially in Caribbean Plaza.
Can we just imagine a tony Baxter level Alladin flying carpet ride in Adventureland? I mean that's way too much to ask for the most visited theme park in the world.... But still... Would be amazing.
So a spinner ride that somehow has a "something has gone wrong!" story shoehorned into it?
As in Indy / Splash mountain level...
Not a spinner.
Oh. Well for during the '90s there was a persistent rumor that the Cave of Wonders and the flying carpet would be the basis of Disney's first significant VR attraction, and that the VR sets at DisneyQuest were a proof of concept. Anybody else remember this?
DisneyQuest's Carpets was the end result of proof of concepts tested at Innoventions in the mid 90s.
Most rides follow that pattern ...
NO! Something new and fresh...and no Spinner...
How about an Adventureland ride like Soarin?
Character centric, takes you through or over famous scenes. Soar over Agrabah (sp?), Pride Rock, Tortuga, ... and end the ride into a refreshed shopping experience like a bazaar. Might be hard to combine animated and non-animated elements, but maybe they could accomplish that through a portal animation of sorts in the video. Take out Tiki, the bazaar, and shops, and redress it all so it doesn't look like a giant building outside. Then include all of those elements on the interior/exterior of the new ride so as not to disturb the atmosphere. If realestate is a concern, make a new adventureland gateway down in the corner between pirates and frontier where the waffle fry stand is at and build into that jungle back there.
I think people would go for a Soarin-esque eTicket at MK.
Soarin' is so unique to EPCOT that I think it would be odd to have the same basic ride with a different film...and the show building for Soarin' is HUUUGE! Thet wold dwarf the other buildings in the Magic Kingdom... And with the new Flight Of Passage ride coming online at the Animal Kingdom, it would seem odd to add another flying type attraction with a big screen.
They could bury it underground
not with Florida's high water table...
Isn't all of Magic Kingdom built up so that an underground can exist? Or couldn't they just do whatever they did before? Anyway, it was just an idea which I can clearly see was poorly thought out and can't happen now because its just impossible. Thanks for the clarity.
it is built up, but not up enough to sink building of that size down to where it would not dwarf the other buildings.
Here's how to save the Tiki Birds:
Rebuild the seats to be in the round. Rotate them during the show. Add vibrations for the volcano eruption.
Voila! It's now a ride and no longer a show.
I love the idea of adding motion to the theater while plussing up the effects....
The lovely Canada Garage. To make it authentic it should be full of old hockey equipment, patio furniture, Christmas decorations, and empty 2-4s of molson with no room left to actually park a car in it.
