A while back, over in the HKDL forum, I posted my ideas for a second gate for that resort...
HKDR Second Gate - "Disney's North American Adventure"
Well I thought that one attraction I detailed there could also fit in the reimagined Hollywoodland at DCA.
It is called 'Hollywood Patrol' and utilises the 4D technology behind The Adventures of Spider-Man at Universal's Islands of Adventure in FL.
It could be located where the Muppets 3D and WWTBAM buildings stand. It is set in the 1930s, in line with Hollywoodland.
Stemming from Hollywood Boulevard, just outside the shine of the bright lights, is a much different streetscape - the alleyway down which one finds the Hollywood Police Dept.
The alleyway is an enclosed show building (think Studio 1 at Walt Disney Studios Paris); inside it’s late night and the seedy neon signs of the town are flickering.
The dimly-lit façade of the Police Dept sits at the end of the alley, and behind it the Hollywood Patrol attraction.
The attraction’s queue winds through the reception area, halls, and offices of the Department, leading to the pre-show. Riders are police officers freshly-transferred to Hollywood to help fight the city’s growing underbelly.
The pre-show takes place in the office of 'the Chief', and is similar to that of Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster. The Chief issues riders with orders to spend the night patrolling the streets of Hollywood.
The loading platform is the car parking lot behind the Department. Riders board a vehicle modeled on a 1930’s police car and, wearing their 3D glasses, leave the lot. After cruising the streets for a short time the Chief's voice comes over the radio and he orders you to check out some reported suspicious activity not far from your location.
You arrive just in time to see a shady-looking man run from the side of a parked topless vehicle, and the vehicle tear off around a corner.
The central part of the attraction is a (perceived) high-speed chase through the streets of Hollywood, complete with near-misses and fire hydrant and electricity pole collisions (for some 4D water and spark effects).
Eventually the chase leads you to the Hollywood Hills where, for the finale, both the suspect's and your own vehicle are forced off the narrow road by an oncoming vehicle. A visual effect gives the feeling of careening down the hill.
Turns out the suspect was thrown from his car on the way down and caught by his clothes in a tree. The Chief radios through a congratulatory message.
