    Cool Attraction you like the least... and how would you fix it?

    We all have our favorite attractions as well as those that we really can't stand. People around here tend to be pretty vocal about what they like, what they don't like and what they would like to see at their local Disney park(s). The concept for this thread is to take your least-favorite attraction and describe how you would make it into something you (and hopefully others) would really enjoy.

    (Just saying 'I'd rip it out and replace it with X' does not count. That is, unless you have a really creative idea for a new attraction to replace it with.)

    Re: Attraction you like the least... and how would you fix it?

    For Big Thunder Mountain Railroad I would add a slow, meandering section at the beginning that goes through the area west of the attraction's location, so you can take in the sights of that area, enjoy the fully-grown forest, rebuild the Rainbow Caverns and have it go through that at the slow rate, then climb to a higher elevation. Then the fast part like it has now, except faster, longer and darker than it is now. And redesign the train itself so that it looks completely different and is not a reminder of the fatal accident.

    I would make Goofy's Sky School indoor, well when it rethemes at least.

    Thanks Mr. Eisner. Enjoying your $570 million?
    Big Thunder is only a Knott's-quality ride as it stands now. To be brought up to Disney quality it needs to be a lot longer and have a lot more show added.

    Let's see...

    Well there's that empty piece of track on Tomorrowland, but that's not really an attraction...


    ...and Snow White's too easy....


    I'll get back to you on that!

    Re: Attraction you like the least... and how would you fix it?

    Before any real arguing begins in this thread, please let me remind everybody that it is supposed to be a FUN thread. In the spirit of that, please do not post negative opinions about other's ideas that are posted here.

    This is a forum for people to tell us about an attraction that they don't like, and then tell us how they would improve upon it. If you disagree with those people, then that's just your opinion and that doesn't mean that they are wrong, and there is no reason to argue over it. Of course, if you'd like to compliment anybody's ideas on how they'd improve an attraction, then I gladly invite you to do so!

    I really want this thread to be fun and not turn into litter box fodder. Permanecer sentado, por favor.

    The OP thanks you, in advance, for your cooperation.

    Innovations...there is no way to fix it, it's a big round advertisement.

    Actually, there is. Convert the entire building into a model home of the future sans plastic! And no, not the dream home that's currently there, but a home with an actual layout!





    ...or you can just place the Carousel of Progress there...

    Seriously? Are you joking? I don't know if you have been to Knott's recently but Big Thunder is superior to every attraction there. Not every ride needs to be a big show stopper.

    I would totally retheme FNSV.

    Maybe we should form a gang and just steal it back from WDW!

    i would change It's a Small World to something fun.

    i do agree with Bob Weaver in that BTMRR needs more show. i know there's a story behind the ride, but i really get no sense of the story whatsoever when riding it. if i remember correctly it's about some ghost that haunts the train.. or something? simple "1800-esque" (or whatever time-era it hails from) posters signifying that the ride is haunted would help, or even "caution: runaway train" signs.. even if they'd just be overlooked after your first time seeing them.
