    Re: LOST Themed Attraction

    Unfortunately, yes, a lot of viewers don't give the show a chance because they're impatient. It's doubly regrettable since seasons 1 through 4 are freely and legally available in such amazing quality on abc.com!

    Re: LOST Themed Attraction

    One of my top 3 shows of all time! But as an attraction, I'm not so sure. It would fit perfectly into Adventureland, but they don't have a square foot to spare. And there's simply no other place it could go, unless it was its own land.

    There are so many great themes to follow, but it's become such a broad show, what season would the attraction/land be based on? The jungle/mystery of the Seasons 1-2, the Dharma of Seasons 3-4 or the Mythology of Seasons 5-6? I think it would be too hard to make it work, even though the themes are really timeless.

    Re: LOST Themed Attraction

    Indeed...perhaps it'd be best to do a whole LOST land! (This is in some theoretical, nonexistent theme park, mind you.) That'd allow the full breadth of the show's content to be explored, though I wouldn't sum up the season breakdown quite the way you did, Mojave. Anyway, the land itself would have to be made quite jungle-y...lots of real and fake trees and foliage, perhaps with some more open plains as well. It'd be nice to feature the beach and some of the really mountainous areas, too, but those would probably have to be done inside show buildings, using cyclorama backgrounds and so forth...it'd be hard to pull off convincingly.

    Y'know, I'm having a hard time coming up with ideas for actual rides. The environments are compelling, but I don't know what could actually be done for an attraction. The DHARMA vans could be useful as ride vehicles, with the submarine and Flight815 itself being less likely candidates, but still possible. It's difficult to come up with something that doesn't feel contrived. The possibilities for walkthrough environments are endless, though, and perhaps more compelling.

    Re: LOST Themed Attraction

    They don't ever seem to do rides of their TV shows. Of course, sometimes this is a good thing - no Miley's Tweentown or High School Musicaland - but I'd still like to ride the quick cars from Gummi Bears.

    Maybe it's because of Gadget's Go Coaster - "Gadget who?" "Inspector Gadget?" No, Gadget Hackwrench from Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers! Of course, if the ride did more to represent her, maybe she would still be known today...

    But I digress...maybe when they make a Lost movie, they might do something with it.

    I fully agree. I think once the series end, it'll die out over the course of a few years.

    I'm really not that big of a fan of the show, though. Watched liked the first 5 episodes and I just couldn't get into it.

    Re: LOST Themed Attraction

    LOST is too adult (ie not whole of family friendly)for a Disney attraction. The first episode alone is terrifying enough with the plane crash to keep it out of the Park. Although it does score on the "something goes wrong" dot point that most Disney rides are based on.

    DCA stands for Disney Construction Area. All the Cast Members are themed with hard hats and steel toed boots.

    Re: LOST Themed Attraction

    I still think the old Discovery Island in WDW is a perfect place for a Lost experience, something like us being new recruits to the Dharma initiative, etc.

    A great secluded location that's sitting rotting away that could have endless possibilities.

    Re: LOST Themed Attraction

    Why must new attractions rely on the popularity of some other entertainment franchise? Why on Earth is it impossible for the company to remember their own past? A past when they CREATED the next big thing, not copied it from some other division. Pirates, Haunted Mansion, small world, Space Mountain are all massive hits after 30 - 40 years because they are originals. WDI can still do this kind of work if they were given the faith and trust that they used to be and didn't have to bend to the heavy yoke of synergism and relevance.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Well, the same is true of the Indiana Jones films, but that didn't stop Disney from creating a top-notch attraction based on them, and one that captures all the peril without alienating the majority of kids!

    I agree with both of these statements. I, too, am getting a tad tired of seeing every single attraction needing to be based off of a movie or television show (save Soarin' Over California). However, I am also not 100% against it either. As Datameister noted above, "Indy" is a superb attraction based on a movie. (Although it could use some major TLC, but that's already being covered elsewhere.) If enough thought and passion are put into an attraction it shows. I truly wish Disney (the corporation) had more faith in what it was doing so they could take more risks without worrying so much about failure. (If you think something will go bad more than likely it will.)

    Now to answer the OP's suggestion, I never have watched a single episode of Lost. It's not that the premise turned me off, it's only because I've never been home to see it when it airs on TV. (I tried watching stuff online before, but I have such a dinosaur of a computer that it didn't work very well. (Getting a new computer soon, though!))

    With that said, I do think an attraction BASED on getting lost on a remote island could work. Do I think it would be best at The Disneyland Resort? Nope, but I do like the possibilities.

    Semi-off-topic, but you should definitely give it a try once you've got a reasonably fast computer and Internet connection...abc.com actually offers pretty amazing quality online, and the show itself is just awesome. You have to plug through some slower, less enjoyable parts of the show (e.g. the middle of season 2), but IMO, the show has just gotten better and better overall. The fifth season was the most recent, and I think it had the most consistently high quality of any of the seasons, though they all have considerable strengths.

    I know. But it was the most general breakdown I could come up with without going season by season.

    Maybe they could put it as a restaurant. Each of the different rooms to each of the different Dharam Stations.

    Haha, that'd be awesome...and all the food would have to be served in DHARMA boxes and cans. Preferably in the form of pallet drops that appeared on all the tables while the lights momentarily flickered off.
