Mulholland Madness generally gets a bad rap because it is a wild mouse coaster, and it is located in a Disney park. With the it's 'improvement' into Goofy's Sky School, it got me into think of how else they could make it more 'Disney.'
If think if they enclosed the coaster from below the first tracks on top of the ride, it would be a great opprotunity to make it a great dark ride. For example, they could have the 'Goofy's Sky School' theme to it, but be able to put audio animatronics of Goofy around the track in the lower parts of the coaster where there is a lot of room.
The story could be this, the ride starts going up the lift hill, where on the right side of the cars are Toy Story mania type screens, which would have Goofy trying to push his plane faster enough to be airborne. (He is Goofy) At the top of the coaster he suceeds and the cars begin their trip on top of the building etc. etc. Once you finish the switchbacks, you reenter the building, and you get several audio animatronic scenes inside the building (These would be over in the center of the coaster, where there are no tracks or machines) while you dive down and veer to the right and the left. Your flight finally ends on the final stretch of the coaster, where a rather relieved-if-haggard Goofy animatronic congradulates you on your flying.
If Disney took the concept of 'wild mouse coaster' and then enhanced it to become a mix of a dark ride as well, I think the ride would have a chance at being a really good 'attraction,' as well as a ride.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
