Ok so since we both seem to really be attached to the idea of a theater that becomes separate ride vehicles. Let's figure your a way to do that. We know the theater itself will be set up like an observatory (what about taking inspiration from a planetarium?) I just went to my first a few days ago and I was really enamored with it. A seating in the round theoretically could be comprised of pie shaped pieces without the tips, surrounding a central scene object. There would have to be dividers or at least empty space between seating sections for safety - and getting the ceiling to blow apart would be tricky with a domed screen. But I think it is technically feasible in this form factor. Would be insanely expensive but good thing we're not limited by budget lol. I'll see if I can draw up some ideas tonight of how that might work. Lots of problems to solve.
