    I believe @Magic Feather is actually. I'll do it if she doesn't want to, but I believe that she expressed interest

    I'll be our resident Tolkien/universe checker then if I'm the only one familiar with the book.

    That is our basis from the movie for the town and mountain.

    Now, are we thinking loading in the mountain or in the town.

    Queue could take us from town to mountain. We get some scenes of the dwarve happiness at finding their treasure. Then the dragon awakens and flys away. Back to flamin version of town. Arrow shot. Bam

    I am familiar with the Jackson films and the hobbit and fellowship book.

    Also at around 16 min in this video you can see the chamber with Smaug

    I'm just gonna say, I absolutely adore the Smaug design. It's like a dragon lion and would make an amazing AA

    I completely agree. In the treasure room, the dragon should be a full scale AA. However, in the battle above the town, this could be tricky.

    I'd say have most of the dark ride type stuff be in the mountain/castle and not worry about a flying Smaug.

    Agree with that. Also, like kmbmw said, we need to start working on this. @kmbmw777 and @Pionmycake , you seem to have the best handle on the ride, so I highly suggest that one of you (or both) do the ridethrough. @Snoopy , you seem keen on the intro for realism, would you want to do that? @mickeyfan5534 , since you are great with the facts, would you like to put in a bit as to how this would add to the lore, and maybe include a queue and exterior description? I can work on the map, and placement. Lastly, what if we did a splashdown into an exterior lake. That could be interesting and provide a small thrill.

    I assume this would be behind the ride and out of site from the viewers.

    Also it sounds like the direction we are going is more Thirteen Dwarves Mine Boats than a retelling of the battle against Smaug.

    Also @Magic Feather, what were your thoughts on the presentation style I proposed

    Thirteen Dwarves Mine Boats in the sense of a bunch of pretty scenery and one big AA show scene?

    @Pionmycake and I can make a PM and discuss the ride ideas.

    Also just a rough outline of my idea for the ride. It is not the plot of the movie per say, but it is more easily conveyed in a ride form

    -Entrance of Lonely Mountain
    -Dwarves and Hobbit exploring the mountain and marveling at the gold
    -Dwarves drunkenly singing
    -Frodo exploring for Thorin and bam he finds and awakens dragon.
    -Dragon attacks Frodo and Dwarves and drives them out of Mountain (Drop)
    (Time for Screenz!)
    -In the distance (after the drop), Smaug can be seen flying about the town of Lakeview and destroying it slowly.
    -A dwarf with a telescope on the boat narrates the events. "Holy carp! That guy just shot an arrow at Smaug and slayedhim! We are saved!"
    -Return to the Mountain and more singing

    in the sense that rather than living in the battle, we are just touring the mountain more so.

    I'd say that hiw you deal with Smaug can be very interesting. Maybe silhouette projections (ala splash) when being thrown out of the mountain. A dome, Shanghai Pirates esque screen when smaug flies above. Then a final dead smaug figure?
