    These are comic book characters where rules of time, space, science, physics, or anything else do not apply. You want to be entertained while waiting to get on Thunder Mtn RR - have The Thing stand up there and kick the backside out of a cattle rustler or bank robber. He kind of blends in with the mountain anyway. Now that's entertainment.

    I would rather see him kick the pants off those people who feel the need to recite the " wildest ride in the wilderness" line.

    Ha ha... that's actually creative though. Davy Crockett trying to murder you the whole ride.

    I really, really like that idea.

    +1. Nice one, MarkTwain. That's the kind of mix of history + fantasy + technology + showmanship that I identify with classic Disneyland attractions.

    I'd have to agree with this.

    Unfortunately, Western Rive Expedition will never come to fruition.

    Love this idea:

One disappointing thing about Frontierland, even with all of these western towns and boats and runaway trains, is the lack of actual cowboys, one of the most iconic elements of the American west. Tomorrowland has its spacemen, Adventureland has its explorers, and Fantasyland has its princesses, but where are our cowboys?? Another problem is the lack of a non-Rivers of America ride that the little guys can join in on - and it's often little kids that are most into the "cowboys and Indians" thing to begin with.

    So I think the best solution would be either a stagecoach, or covered wagon, or even dropless flume ride (like small world) where the whole family could just admire the scenery and look at stuff. It wouldn't have to be boring, though... have geysers going off and almost (or actually) hit the guests... dancing saguaro cacti... robbers holding up a stagecoach, and then a sheriff showing up to stop them... Native Americans peeking at guests from behind rocks... guys doing a shootout all around the vehicle... and then a big hoedown when the good guys win (How well can AAs dance, anyway? I'd like to see WDI show us). And maybe some of the animatronic wildlife from Nature's Wonderland while they're at it. Just a good, old-school Disney Western dark ride (even if it's outdoors).
    As well as:

    I also liked the idea about Sleepy Hollow. I think that could work for Frontierland, even though the story took part in Colonial America.

    Any of my own ideas would be similar with lots of AAs, and slow enough to enjoy the scenery.

    The River used to be a lot busier when the Keelboats were running. They were a welcome addition with the humorous pilots.

    I'd like to see Country Bears back.

    There used to be gunfights over the Golden Horseshoe Review that were pretty fun.

    I guess the Mule Ride is out though.....

    That right there just killed another argument earlier that gunfighters don't belong in Disneyland.

    Yeah anyone who says gun fighters, marvel or otherwise, do not belong in Frontierland needs to look at the history of Frontierland. Or even just Disneyland. The 1959 rededication parade had a float where a gun fight broke out and the announcer says that the good guy killed everyone. Lol Also anyone who thinks it is too violent needs to look at Pirates of the Caribean. Most of what made Frontierland exciting back in the day was the idea of cowboys, Indians, and outlaws. I doubt Disney would use a little known Marvel character but if they did use the ones brought up earlier I would not complain. Frontierland needs more excitement and life especially in the pass around big thunder ranch.
