    Should DCA's Monster's get a Hide n' Go Seek makeover?

    Should DCA's Monster's Inc. ride get a Hide n' Go Seek makeover?

    Not much more to say, then that really. I'm not sure how I feel about another interactive ride and some other impacts doing this might have, but the Tokyo ride does sound kind of neat. What do you think?

    The DCA version could easily fit inside the Tokyo Showbuilding, so there is your first problem

    I mean add the flashlight hide-n-go-seek with more AA monsters, maybe tweak some scenes, not recreate the whole Tokyo ride.

    Anything from Tokyo's ride would be an upgrade so it has my vote.

    I honestly think they should make sure everything that is currently in the ride functions correctly before attempting to expand the technology. The screens on the cars are constantly broken as are many of the belts that move the doors in the door factory scene. When they can get actual maintenance up to par, I'd be interested in seeing this.

    I am not familiar with the Tokyo version, but it sounds like it has some fun stuff that could improve the modest DCA version.

    The DCA version of Monsters Inc is a lot closer to Superstar Limo than I think anyone really knows. Very few major hardware changes to Superstar Limo were required to transform it. Think about it. Just about all the "AA" Monsters are former "robo-celebrities" from SSL. The limos are still being used, except now they look like 3-bench taxis with an on-board screen. The list goes on, but you get the idea.

    So to make DCA's Monsters Inc more resemble Tokyo's, it could be possible, but they'd have to make those significant changes that weren't done in the SSL -> Monsters Inc transition.

    Well at least they have more AA's and set pieces already to work with, and they could still keep the vehicles, again not make changes or only small ones to the track and of course add the computer controls they'd need and the AA's which would be the big costs. It would cost some money, but it would be something new and probably a much bigger draw at much less cost then an entirely new ride.

    So it has been reported that TDL's Monsters Inc ride will include over 70 large scale animatronics. Personally I wouldn't mind seeing just the animatronics in DCA's replaced by TDL's that would make the ride worth it imo.

    I'd like it, but the attraction doesn't need as much attention as other parts of DCA do. Monsters is a good dark ride, better than the Fantasyland ones in terms of effects and figures. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    I'm not going to say Monsters Inc. is a bad attraction. But keep in mind some of the 50 minute long waits a lot of Fantasyland's attractions have vs. Monster Inc's almost continual walk-on queue times, I would say it needs some heavy upgrades.

    Bad Location, not bad attraction.

    There's no draw to that area of Hollywood. Upgrades aren't needed, I'm thinking a new attraction in the Millionaire building and in Hollywood and Dine would boost attendance to both MI and Muppet-Vision. The area is so sleepy and not usually crowded. It's actually a pretty well-done attraction for the genre and especially compared to Pooh.

    It's not necessarily the ride though. It's the park.
