    Crazy Idea I Just Had for A New Attraction - Slingshot Into DCA!

    Just spitballing this idea right now.....

    Giant slingshot on Disneyland side - where you get shot into the air from Disneyland, fly over the park entrances, and land in a giant catcher's mitt in DCA, then slide down into a soft landing on the ground.

    Just the visual of this is making me laugh. I know, it's a crazy idea, probably would never work or be allowed, but....it's a fun thought.

    Lawsuit?

    That would be neat though.

    EDIT: I agree with TikiRoom's idea of a type of skyway, but, as he said, it might be difficult to keep track of parkhoppers, APS, etc.

    Maaaybe not so much a slingshot whipping me through the air (egads), but I've always liked the idea of a skyway or some type of transportation between the two Parks. I understand the issues with above crowd transportation (spitting, dropping items, etc.) but I'd love to catch a ride from Disneyland into DCA rather than having to walk. However, I guess you'd have to deal with checking people's Admission tickets to make sure they had a Hopper option or an AP before plopping them from one Park to the other.

    I like your train of thought!

    Bahaha or maybe a catapult? A whole line of them infront of DCA with individual seats. For an extra fee you can be the one to send your relatives flying!

    There you go! I like that one!

    Actually TikiRoom's suggestion would probably be the best and the most do-able. Plus it'd be a great way to bring back the Skyway. Checking ParkHopper tickets and AP's would be easy - they'd just check them before you'd get in line. If they brought back the original Fantasyland-to-Tomorrowland-and-back Skyway as an alternate, one-park ticket holders could ride that instead. Win/win for everybody.

    Actually, to make it practical, they would only have to check your pass as you got on, and if you had a ticket that allowed you into the other park, they put something on the outside of your vehicle as a signal to let you off. Otherwise, you keep on for a round trip.

    Another way would be to have a sectioned off area where you get off where you still have to show a valid park hopper to be allowed in. If you don't have that, or even just don't want to go in, there's a line there to get right back on in the return direction.

    How about being shot out of a cannon instead of a slingshot? They can theme it to Peter Pan and have Mr. Smee fire off the shot.

My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."
