This is an idea that's been in the back of my head for quite sometime now. I finally decided to pull it out of my brain's bowels and revive it for your enjoyment!
The attraction I have designed is a trackless e-ticket (If not a d-ticket) dark ride meant as a replacement for Monsters, Inc. AND a small chunk of the hub. Because of this it will have to expand across the park's border and into a small portion of the hub, as mentioned. The show building will be somewhat large as the attraction inside is pretty big and elaborate.
The exterior of the attraction will be somewhat foreboding yet somehow serene. It will follow the same architecture as the Tower of Terror, the Pueblo Deco manner. However a new feature will be added. Statues of skeletons (Resembling those seen in The Skeleton Dance) "holding up" the building as support beams. Of course they aren't really doing that and are located in between pillars. Each has a distinct facial expression, either a face of agony, enjoyment, or fear. A large clock perpetually stuck on "13" rests on a small tower located to the very center of the building.
The immersive touch of the new attraction begins the second guests enter. Rather than ending up inside the building seen from they outside, they have suddenly been transported into a dark back alley of Hollywoodland, very similar to the one used as the entrance to the Ink and Paint Club in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? One can hear sirens in the distance and catch a glimpse of the city's skyline, with the lights of the windows illuminating the air. We often pass tin trash cans, and hear the occasional screeching of an upset cat or barking dog. Conversations between gangsters and shady figures (The conversations are mostly humorous) can be heard coming from within the nearby buildings. We have entered the dark side of Hollywoodland, rarely seen by the public eye.
Eventually we make our way into a more open-air alleyway, the loading area. A wooden picket fence lies to the north, decorated with wanted posters for surprisingly enough, Disney villains. Strangely enough, dented and aging trash cans roll into the alleyway, loading and unloading passengers! Quite a bizarre sight. After a few seconds or minutes of waiting we make our way into one of the cans, four to each. Once locked in we cruise away from the alley and make a sharp left behind a wall, stopping before two buzzards...but not just any buzzards...the two seen in Splash Mountain before the final drop. As of right now I can't really think of any dialogue for them. So basically you probably guessed this, the vultures will gives guests a safety spiel. Afterwards the cans make a right and proceed towards a large set of doors that strangely resemble a large mouth with fangs. Above it rests two angry, Muppet-like eyes that watch us come towards them.
More to come.
If this creation is well-received by the MiceChat public, then my next project to be shared will be released sometime soon.
More to come once again!
