    frontierland and dca grizzly river run retheming hypothetical question

    hypothetical question: if big thunder mountain railroad were removed from frontierland and grizzly river run were put in its place, would it(thunder mountain railroad) work with the theming of the area in which the grizzly river run currently stands?


    also, if the attraction(btmrr) were considered for the chopping block so to speak, to keep it from going to yesterland, is there enough room in frontierland to like the Disneyland Railroad encircling Disneyland, have it(btmrr) encircle fronteirland?
    pro of this hypothesis: it would make the ride more exciting and thrilling
    con---the safety factor: the ride would have to be either enclosed in a plexiglas enclosure, or placed on a berm above frontierland proper(actually both to prevent the cars from derailing and or falling off track


    what do you all think?

    I only have a comment for your first question; yeah, I suppose it'd fit in theme wise.

    Re: frontierland and dca grizzly river run retheming hypothetical question

    I admit the post is confusing>


    what I meant was: if thunder mountain railroad were taken out of frontierland and moved over to dca where grizzly river run is now and grizzly river run moved to frontierland would it work?


    talking into consideration Walt said that Disneyland would never be complete that as long as imagination still exists that it(disneyland) is something that can grow and change, adding new and exciting things and removing things that dont work or if possible change them to become attractions that can attract guests to experience them again.

    I just thought that perhaps a little reimagineering of both parks on top of the plans already in progress would draw more attention to the resort and entice more guests to come and visit the resort.

    Cool Re: frontierland and dca grizzly river run retheming hypothetical question

    I wouldn't want BTMRR in DCA. The rocks are too red, to desert-ish. But GRR would work well in Frontierland.

    Re: frontierland and dca grizzly river run retheming hypothetical question

    Ummm i think GRR would work but I feel it would be to close to Splash and since its bears i fell that it would make Frontierland become more of a Critter country. Would it work??? Only if you had a wild west theme. However BTMRR would not work in my case at DCA because it IMHO has no real relevance to California that point of the park.

    I would actually say that GRR would need to be modified to work in Frontierland, and BTM would need to be modified to work in DCA. The main difference is mining in the desert vs logging in the forrest. It could be done... but both would need to be modified. Additionally GRR would need to ditch the modern references on the rafts.

    Re: frontierland and dca grizzly river run retheming hypothetical question

    if the switch was made there would be too many water thrill rides near each other...

    if anything I would like to see BTMRR redone so that another attraction could interweave thru it and maybe reuse the tunnles along ROA.
