I agree fully. If they just use this spot here, I almost guarantee people are going to say "thats it????" or something similar to the comments when The Little Mermaid ride was built. even if they usurped the footprint left for the whole in case of adding countries thing, you'd still wind up with something very jammed together, and if they made it too tall it'd make the whole park look lopsided and it'd be so awkward compaired to the other pavillions ruining their landscapes with a towering menace.While Maelstrom is a random ride that needs a MAJOR UPDATE (yes, I know some love it), as has been discussed here many times, the ride space is just too small to do Frozen any real justice. Frozen deserves something grand and fixing up this small space won't cut it IMO.
Oh, now I feel bad!That depends- are you going to continue with the name calling and violent hyperbole? Really. Flogging because someone doesn't like high brow entertainment....
Ah yes....That ride up that tunnel with Odin's eye blazing at you is just plain AWESOME. A simple thing, yet so effective. Strikes the perfect note of eerie magic. One of the reasons I like Maelstrom so much.those who seek the spirit of Norway face peril and adventure, but more often find beauty and charm.
You are not the first to pass this way, nor shall you be the last...
Ahhhh!!! Geek out moment!those who seek the spirit of Norway face peril and adventure, but more often find beauty and charm.
Exactly. It may seem a bit random at first glance, but once you really ride it and take it all in it is just so majestic and spiritful. I love Maelstrom. All it needs is a few tech updates as well as some more queue theming and a new film and it really is still worth the wait.Ah yes....That ride up that tunnel with Odin's eye blazing at you is just plain AWESOME.

Well argued again. Seriously, if we can have a Carsland at DHS (for no valid reason at all) why now a Frozenland? I like it.How about creating an area in another park where they do belong. One could argue toy story may not have belonged in DHS until Pixar place
I know there has been lots of discussion on Star Wars land and Carsland. How about creating instead of Carsland a frozen land? Build a nice ice castle, (some holiday possibilities here as well), meet and greets, dark ride for the whole family, Sven sled coaster, heck and maybe even an Olaf spinner....I think an argument could be made frozen appears to be even more popular than cars....it would be all about execution and design
I agree. I wish Malestrom was updated to be a longer attraction. I avoid this attraction when the wait time is moderate. It's not worth it in my opinion.And THAT is why I don't want Frozen where Maelstrom is, because that boat ride is too short and boring- Frozen deserves better.
as much as I like Maelstrom... I would be ok with removing and expanding it to a large frozen ride... but only if they expand it greatly. If they just remove it and put in a frozen ride... then they are wasting a big opportunity with a big film in a big park that could use some big stuffDevil's Advocate
Norway no longer supports their own pavilion. Maelstrom is boring and outdated. No one stays for the film anymore and most rush through the shop. Why should Disney spend money to fix it? There is an adjacent pad available so take Maelstrom out and build a larger Frozen ride on both pads that will kick ***. It can still be Scandinavian themed but capitalize on the popularity of Frozen and replace a worn out mold stained Norwegian ride that the mother country no longer cares about.
