Finding an animal based god from South American culture would be a good way to make the ride fit. You can introduce people to a part of South American history & also talk about how important animals are to humans that in the past we based gods around them.If Indiana Jones comes, I want it to be a ride centered around South America, as that’s what the rest of the land would be. You could enter a Mayan, Aztec, or Incan temple. Obviously Disney isn’t going to do a ride centered around animals (it’s kind of hard to have a thrilling dark ride around anything but dinosaurs or other carnivores), but it should at the very least be centered around South America and either it’s history or culture.
They must (stupidly) lump the Dinosaur ride & dinosaurs in general in with the negative reception to Dinoland. Dinoland has to be one of the most frowned upon parts of WDW, so it makes sense to revamp it. It just would've been nice if it was still dinosaur themed.Encanto, other than the setting which sort of makes sense, just doesn't fit to me. It has basically nothing to do with animals. Indy is a 30 year old ride at Disneyland so to me it makes little sense to retheme an existing ride to it. I can't see huge numbers of people flocking to it, but maybe I am wrong.
I think people still enjoy Dinosaur, and they like dinosaurs in general so not sure why Disney is so intent on gutting this area. Put some money into it. With the proper refurbishment and budget it would be and remain very popular. Every single attraction doesn't need to be IP.
Yeah, I went in late October & it wasn't in good shape. That's sad that it's gotten even worse.Ok- here this week. We rode it yesterday and many of the lights were out - Dinos missing- things off.
Looks like they just gave up fixing the things that need them
And this was a favorite of ours in the past
i like that. would to see something along those lines and yes no shaken baby syndrome.I love Indy in California. Great ride. Part of what makes Disneyland superior to Magic Kingdom. However............what is great about Disneyland vs. WDW is not just their similarities but their differences. I have always liked how there are some unique experiences at one place vs. the other. So I am fine with Dinosaurs being in WDW and Indy in DL. Both are unique. It is Animal Kingdom after all, so we should stick with an animal theme. Indy is not an animal. So you can change the storyline, but I still say make it about Dinosaurs.
I will also add that I think a Bambi, Lion King, Jungle Book or even a throwback to Mr. Toad is a good fit for an animal themed ride at AK. Would be fun to dream.
The Sauropod has recently gone missing, during the "computer: slow...and identify" sequence. There is literally nothing there. Hopefully they are repairing/replacing it. I cannot imagine they would not just leave it there static otherwise if it was broken.Dinosaurs were missing!? Which ones?
In the video game Indiana Jones & The Infernal Machine one of the bosses is Quetzelqoutal a Serpent which Indy tends to hate...Put 2 and 2 together with the temple retheme and there you have it.Finding an animal based god from South American culture would be a good way to make the ride fit.
