I know the theming is cheap local fair style... but I always thought if they enclosed this coaster and re-themed it, it could be much more popular.

I agree...if they did it all tongue in cheek...kind of the way it is, but plussed it up, all in the dark, special effects and black-lit props it could actually be fun...

That's certainly an option, but at this point I think they've exhausted the useful life of this attraction and area. Expand it to an area of other extinct animals (not just dinosaurs) add in a dark ride or two and it would really help balance the park's offerings.

It would be nice if this extended downtime became permanent as part of an overhaul of the land.

The current theme has outlived it's purpose - DAK needs better, and the concept of the land should lend itself to something so much better than Chester & Hester.

I would much rather ride a cheesy roller coaster that is actually kind of fun than sit through the Tiki room that is so bad it make me want to run out screaming, or Indiana Jones which was good at one point but has not changed at all in 30 years time, or Tom Sawyer Island which is well, boring unless you are 5.
The Tiki Room is Wonderful. Indiana Jones does need something else to have happened since it opened, which hasn't been the case. Stom Sawyer Island is a good place to get the kiddies away from the crowd so they can run before naptime. I actually like the coaster in question and I Do understand the "kitch" Disney was trying to create with Dinoland and am fine with that, too. (I know, I'm easy to please! :) )

Well it only cost $6/person to ride a wild mouse at the Indiana state fair, course that doesn't include the $9 admission and $8 parking fee lol.
