Reviews - @RMichael21 As a preface to my reviews, I'll let y'all know I've been busy with life so I haven't had a chance to look through all of your previous entries in minute detail. Therefore, I'm going into these with a somewhat clean slate. And by the way, I did these backwards (starting with the last one submitted). Also, it's great to get re-involved in the Imagineering forum community after a 6-month hiatus. I'll hopefully be hanging around until school begins again at the end of August. Lucas Film Studios While starting from scratch would have given you all some extra creativity brownie points, I did enjoy your take on "Space Mountain." The Space theme is really a classic Disney experience so I'm glad that'll be staying around. However, I almost feel the theme is too similar to the current iteration of the attraction. While the airport idea was pretty cool and the overall experience was changed, you still enter a Space Port on today's space mountain. I just feel you could have been a tad more creative. But, the queue was pretty cool, with the window to space and different departure gates. It all feels much more expansive and elaborate than the current Space Mountain. This brings me to the ride experience. While I thought your added effects, double seated ride vehicles and launch were cool, it still felt similar to the classic Space Mountain we know and love. The purpose of the challenge was to either create a new mountain or completely re-imagine a current one. @Disney Dad 3000 said the two iterations should be similar in name only. Now, maybe this is because there wasn't much detail and pictures were used to fill in the remaining spaces. If so, added details on what makes this attraction unique could have helped your proposal immensely. I know this is very vague, but your proposal is missing something, a wow factor of sorts. Is the attraction interactive somehow? Does it go backwards? Maybe you came up with an all new kind of coaster train or had a cool piece of original artwork. Overall, while the general idea was solid and you all had many good ideas, the lack of details and a "wow factor" left me wanting more. ------------------------- Pixar Studios To begin, I loved the idea of kind of mixing together the two options for the prompt. Taking a non-mountain attraction (and one that is a shell of what it used to be) and making it a mountain! The concept in itself is fantastic and I LOVE that piece of concept art! Props for that. As someone who never really grew up knowing the original Epcot, I don't have the sentimental attachment to the original Imagination like others. However, I'm so glad you took this route and I'm sure this would delight fans! I liked how you kept the classic Imagination pavilion elements in a brief blurb in the 4.0 version of the dark ride. Good way to satisfy nostalgia while leaving the true innovation for the new E-Ticket attraction. Now for a little negative in my opinion. While you did mention the two-seater coaster format would allow for better views, I still have issues with nightlines. Unless a special train was manufactured with added space between each row, I find that inverted coasters offer little views of your surroundings (even two seaters, I've been on several). This is awesome for a normal coaster and increases thrill. But for a dark ride hybrid, I'm not so sure. But the ride itself was fantastic and very detailed. Well done. Furthermore, the after-ride experiences were awesome as well. One detail I found a negative, however, was the VR. While I appreciated the added thought, VR is used mostly by Six Flags (and Sea World now too) to add extra visuals to attractions that are bare and offer little to look at (i.e. Kraken at Sea World Orlando). However, if this attraction is truly the visual feast you describes, this attraction would definitely suffer from VR. An attraction shouldn't need to rely on VR to draw in guests. In sum, this project was fantastic and was full with detail. However, small pieces didn't add up for me, so we'll see how you do! -------------- Marvel Studios Let's begin! First of all, I loved the humorous opening to your projects. Brownie points! Furthermore, extra brownie points for the fantastic website! Whoever set that up, great job. To be perfectly honest, there's so much detail here, I've run out of time to read it all! So, while I most certainly enjoyed reading it all, I don't have time to comment on everything. So, here's some of the highlights (and low points). Iron Mountain was most certainly the highlight, it's a great idea. While the theme was a tad similar to BTM, I thought the details you provided allowed me to separate the two in my mind. Also a small gripe, Pocahontas (to my knowledge I could be wrong) takes place in Jamestown, which is in Virginia. So not exactly the frontier. My biggest problem with the project was the submarine attraction. IMO, the submarine idea just doesn't gel with the rest of Frontierland (and your other expansion pieces as well). Maybe your vision would, but the lack of detail on this attraction just didn't allow me to get a true idea of it. I don't know, maybe that's just me. Also, the smaller amount of detail here seemed out of place compared to the main attraction (which was detail overload). In the end, this should be a close race! -------------- P.S. I apologize for any grammatical errors, I've had a long day.
