    It's too bad Disney didn't buy that property after the Pike closed in 1979. Disney could have built an oceanfront park there.

    Personally I think the Mailboomer needs to just go altogether. I've never been on it before, but it would be okay with me. I don't mind doing ToT, but Mailboomer? Looking at it just makes me feel weird.

    We rode it multiple times last week. There was a posted "0 minute wait". I really enjoy it. But the strange puke guards were weird, they prohibit nose-picking.

    Couldn't it just be left where it is with some painted lattice and gilded ornate scroll-work additions? It wouldn't take much to re-theme it to an old-timey pier amusement ride.

    That piece of garbage is an eyesore. Dismantle it and uses it as props in a junkyard in Carsland.

    Not as is. In my post I said you only really have options of relocation if the structure is somehow sunk down and enclosed. Enclosing it would give the ability to theme the ride inside and out to fit where ever.

    However, any of this would cost much more than the sticker price of the original ride. They should just start over if they want another vertical drop ride in the resort.

    They should add a loop.

    No one has posted the obvious solution:

    Move it to Yesterland !

    I hear there is a nice little section of land that could take it just behind BTMRR. Not the ranch though, the garbage disposal area.

    Nobody has suggested using it in a show yet. I'm thinking about a breathtaking Fantasmic segment where the Maleboomer would battle for it's life against Maleficent the dragon. A dramatic fight would ensue as the dragon gradually melts the ride down into recyclable metal.

    Clothes hangers would then be made from the metal refuse and used for the costumes of cast members that perform in the show. The crowds would be be left screaming for more, and environmentalists would love it too!

    The giant Mickey Mouse ears from the late Earful Tower would be placed on top while the loop travels around them. The newly themed ride's name would be the Earful Looper.

    You are pure inspiration Jeff. How about using the metal from Maliboomer for the Trolly-line tracks. This idea comes complete with an inspired name... Red Car Trolly Boomers!

    Please?
    love this idea...

    With a little luck, it would fall into the ocean and gradually decompose.

    This is so beautiful, man! Our Maliboomer looks dam good there.

    Don't trust that horrid hand and wanton wand. Theyr'e both only after a cheap thrill ride...

    1.) Relocate the Maliboomer to Condor Flats
    2.) Lean the tower at a 45-degree angle, pointed at an angle to the sky
    3.) Remove restraints from seating
    4.) Adjust speed on the launch to be as fast as possible
    5.) Send guests on a REAL flying tour of California.

    Hopefully this would alleviate some of the lines for Soarin' by providing a more authentic experience.


    Especially love step five. Do the guests fly with or without parachutes?

    Just lay it down and use it as a quick way to get back to the parking structure.

    Replace the seats with baskets and use it to hurl thousands of free park passes into the air every 15 minutes.
