    What about a time-traveling-themed ride, a la Jules Verne's Time Machine?

    This is on the wrong board. It should be moved to the imagineering board.

    Not because I don't like the conversation, just because why have an imagineering board if people are gonna do threads like every else except the imagineering board.

    OK time to think outside the box.

    What if Disney started changing the whole area and dropped the FW motif and sponsored attraction with their own franchises.

    Imagination-Muppets (dark ride)
    Mission:Space- WALL-E (space adventure)
    Energy- Incredibles (mummy type coaster)
    Test Track-Cars (self explanatory)
    Seas- Nemo (just moreso)
    The Land- UP (including a new Soarin' film themed to the movie)
    WoL- TRON (self explanatory)
    SSE - same except the descent puts you in your favorite Disney movie


    Yep, something like that could work.

    I was thinkin WoL could be a museum pavilion on EPCOT.

    I think Innoventions should be just the way it is.

    Interesting idea. Never thought of them having a permanent museum but it would be nice to experience past attractions of FW, perhaps in virtual 3D with music and everything. :)

    Maybe a movie in the cranium command theater of the making of me theater?

    There could be a simulator ride that flies over a virtual old Epcot Center in the Body Wars area...

    I wonder if they could have individual doom buggy shaped seats on a motion base and a screen that lowers once inside to fill your field of view. Then you could simply choose the experience you want in 3D.

    Classic SSE
    Original Imagination
    World of Motion
    Horizons w/orange :lol:
    Original Energy
    Body Wars
    Cranium Command

    Of course most or all would have to be virtually created but 3D CGI versions could be enhanced and might be even better than the original!

    I'm sorry if I'm not understanding you right so bare with me here!

    We were talking about a virtual 3-D simulator ride that flies over Old Epcot Center in the Wonders of Life pavilion in maybe like the Body Wars area.

    If I didn't understand you right, sorry, were you talking about like maybe a new 3-D movie in the Imagination! pavilion?

    Hmm... I think i'll stick with Captain E-O untill I see it, if I don't like it then maybe it can go :) I'm thinking maybe something similar to Shrek 4-D at Universal Studios where the chairs move and stuff? Maybe: Dreamfinder and Figment's Dream-Adventure! Maybe the story of it could have a conflict when a kid is dreaming and Dreamfinder shrinks the
    Dream-Flyer and travel into the boy's head and see what the kid is dreaming. The kid could at first start out as a normal happy dream. But then the Dream-Flyer would have a malfunction and some kind of electronic-shock can explode and then the boy's dreams become a nightmare and you have to get to the center of the nightmare and suck it up into a machine called the Nightmare-Suck-Away or something. Then the good dreams come back, you get out of the boy's head and Dreamfinder and Figment make there way back to the Dreamport. You know the dreamport? Where you have to go on the original imagination ride? "Well first we must store these items in the dreamport. Are we almost there? Well the dreamport is never far away when you use your imagination!" Remember that? Also, the new imageworks might be able to stay downstairs, and what if the imageworks IS the dreamport? :D That way I can stick to my old idea of having a figment cafe on the top floor!

    Apologies for the thread bump...

    I'll consider using the madlibs for now:

    If I were in charge of the whole future world section of EPCOT, The first thing I would do is consider a reboot for the WoL pavilion (obviously), because 1) its 80's look is what got it killed, and 2) medical tech is always changing and it needs to catch up... etc. It needs to be changed by means of 1) pattern/paint job changes, 2) expansion to cover a vacant basement floor (give or take) to add room for exhibits or showrooms, and 3) consider a restoration/reboot of anything else. All this, so that the pav remains a lively place to be for years to come.

    That or Mission: Space, because apparently, to have just a simulator-shuttle-ride is just not enough... in fact, it needs to be changed by means of expanding to cover the history, and future of space exploration and travel, so that people who don't like to get space-sick on the simulator rides can get a decent fix of space facts elsewhere.

    Mission: SPACE is just Space Mountain as a simulator. Doesn't fit very well with Future World. :fork:
