ONE MAN ANARCY!I literally went to sleep for a good couple of hours (not saying how long). What on Earth has happened here?
EDIT: I live on the other side of the world, just so everyone's in the know. It's already Easter Sunday morning here!
Omg thank you so much!!! I’m honestly thrilled to hear that our project went from something you were skeptical of to something you really enjoyed!Sorry to get these out so late, I got pulled away for much of the day.

Alright, so I'll be very honest; when I saw this idea pitched, I was very very nervous. I didn't think this concept was going to mesh very well with a Disney park or 1986, so I was biting my nails watching it be developed. However, at the end of the day, when all was said and done, I fell in love with your concept. The entire thing ended up selling me and while this race was probably the tightest one I've seen thus far, it's still insane how amazing this project came out! You seriously exceeded my expectations here.
The backstory here, directly tying it into Motu Wairua and Adventure Atoll is great and I loved the continuing theme and storyline between the two lands, I think that is super awesome. That, tied into the original story of the mutated world, it was all just too perfect and fit so thematically well.
Attack of the Mutant Spider
- I really like the campy nature of this attraction's title. It makes it feel all the more cheesy to fit in with giant spiders. The naming convention across this whole land is great, so don't expect this to be the last time I bring it up.
- I like the idea of focusing on the unknown for this attraction and not having an elaborate story. As someone who loves writing backstories, it's honestly kind of refreshing to see that change, especially in a park that is so heavily full of them.
- The attraction is thrilling, frightening, and simple. I can imagine being terrified of this as a kid, but also adoring it as an adult, much like The Great Movie Ride (at least for me). Great job!Journey into Mutant Mountain
- So this was probably the weakest part of your project in complete honesty. It was a little bit disappointing in that way because it just felt like it should've been way grander. The detail was very limited and there wasn't a lot of focus on the mutants. I don't know, I was honestly disappointed clicking on this one.
- That said, the concept is amazing. A log flume through a cave with mutant animals, that's something I absolutely would love to be able to ride on.The Unauthorized Outer Lands Exploration
- Now THIS is what I'm talking about!
- A walkthrough the restricted area with giant animatronic mutants and whatnot is such an amazing idea and also plays as a great sister attraction to the more peaceful walking trails at Adventure Atoll.
- Why make the rattlesnake area stink though? While it may make sense thematically, I don't imagine guests would be very happy walking through an area that makes them want to puke. Plus, I pity the cast members that have to clean all the vomit that'll inevitably happen here.
- Other than that though, the snakes, spiders, carnivorous plants, and swamp monster segments all sound absolutely phenomenal. This is A1 imagineering here and I'm here for it.Robots Revue
- I like a good animatronic revue, and the threat of the robots absolutely murdering the guests is an enticing one. I can imagine the funny jokes and insanity that'll come from this attraction, and I totally appreciate it for that reason.
- Also @Homemade Imagineering you blew me away with this animatronic. I know about as much about robots as most of you know about Myrmecophaga tridactyla, so seeing something like this is totally mind blowing.
- Having Penn and Teller voice Penn and Teller robots is great.
- Overall, I think a Vegas-style revue but starring murderous robots is a cute and fun idea for a post-apocalyptic Frontierland.Sky Tours
- I get the purpose of this attraction, but when Disneyland Aeronautics is already making their way around the parks, why not expand the line to include what you guys wanted to add here? No shame, but I do feel this is a bit redundant, especially where there's no story or gimmic to it and it's just a bucket sky ride.Spin for Luck
- This is a simple concept that fits the Vegas motif so absolutely well.
- I've never seen an attraction like this either, and it's terrifying. However, I think this would add a neat thrill element to a flat ride that otherwise wouldn't be super thrilling. Great job here!The Shuffler
- It's a scrambler.Play & Win Arcade
- You guys have actual slot machines. You guys created a casino in a Disney park. You guys are insane.
- This arcade seems like a lot of fun and I like the idea of having more retro-style games as the electricity doesn't work because of the radiation, that's a nice touch.
- I also really appreciate the Shooting Arcade segments as that's a part of Disney World I never really have done but have always liked the presence of it. Dining
- I really like the theme and backstory of all of these dining options. Initially, the Italian and Seafood restaurant was a bit weird, but reading about how it is basically a museum and is an upscale dining place in a world becoming normal again, I really do like the concept.
- The Tex Mex restaurant and the
Golden CorrallGolden Plate also fit really well and make total sense here.
- My favorite thing, however, is The Cure. I've always thought a snake oil salesman would make a great location for a drink stand, and y'all did it. Retail
- Not to end this on an anticlimactic note, but it's retail. Everything fits, I like the theme, but there's not a ton to say about it.
In the end, this land had such an amazing theme, such an amazing backstory, and some really solid attractions. I think you guys really deserved the win here and I'm glad my fellow judges agreed. This is a land that honestly is the one I'd be happiest to see at the 1986 park. Great job!
