So here's an idea I had last time I was tooling around Disneyland, this past April. I was trying to imagine what fun, adventure-style, deep-mythology genre Disneyland had not delved into yet -- something in the vein of pirates or ghost stories, something rich and storied with lots of historical legends and lore. And it occurred to me that there was a perfect opening for an Omnimover type ride somewhere in New Orleans Square that celebrated the idea of vampires.
It would fit absolutely seamlessly into New Orleans, since New Orleans is so associated with vampires, and its reputation for being a haven for the supernatural. Perhaps the ride could be nestled into a back alley in New Orleans where you get to enter the secret world of the Vampire elite -- something similar maybe to a flip-side Club 33 -- very glamorous, very plush -- you could ride past initiation rites into vampire society, vampires going on feeding runs, maybe outside past street scenes, where you see that what you think are ordinary people are actually vampires (maybe by having their eyes glow red as you glide past).
I just think there's so much material there, it would add another blockbuster ride, and it would make a really cool New Orleans trilogy with Haunted Mansion and Pirates. And besides, it is BEYOND time for Disneyland to get another epic ride like this that doesn't feature a movie screen or franchised characters.
I think the ride should just simply be called "Vampires." Anybody have any other ideas? Suggestions? This would be a ride I would love...
