With Samland's recent article about Toon Town I got an idea for a new ride in Toon Town. The lack of attractions and the little change that has occurred to the land since it's creation has made Toon Town stale to many. A new interactive ride would give new life to the area and would add to the ride count.
The ride would be a combination of TSMM technology with the classic dark ride elements of TLM. The ride would follow the story of one of 6 characters. Mickey, Goofy, Donald, Minnie, Daisy, and Oswald. The ride would feature animatronic figures with interchangeable animatronics that would change out depending on the character and the story line that the ride experience was taking. Unlike Toy Story Mania it would not all be TV screens with most utilizing projection affects that are projected on the surfaces of the ride. It would be located in the area where the circle D corral is now located and would require that Chip and Dale's tree house be torn down for the queue. The Frontierland Expansion would use the backside exterior of this attraction as a visual land mark and therefore it would not be intrusive into that area. It would also be a compact show building so that very little of the expansion area is taken up.
The vehicles would be long 6 passenger cars that all faced the same direction. The ride vehicle would change themes depending on which character experience they are going through. In front of the guests would be located individual paint canons. These canons would fire when a handle is squeezed. It would have 2 squeeze handles. One would hold paint and would be used to reveal hidden objects. The other would hold paint thinner and would erase certain targets or reveal other hidden extras. As the canons fired their paint at targets located along the attraction projectors would make it seem as though the paint were splattered where ever the canon was fired. (it would be much like it looks on Epic Mickey) When targets were hit with paint there would be objects that would pop out of hidden areas and seem as though they had been painted by the canon. If visible targets were hit with thinner they would disappear (be pulled back into a hole). Along the way there would be special bonus point collected when certain objects were either painted or found hiding behind objects that were thinned out. At the end of each adventure the tallies of bonuses would be calculated and a special award would be given to the best guest in the vehicle by the animatronic figure (this prize would be a sticker that would say the characters name and Toon Town hero (Mickey's Toon Town Hero, Oswald's Toon Town Hero, ect.).
Each character's adventure would be different but they would all involve something threatening to upset the peace in Toon Town. Mickey would face the Blot. Donald would help stop Pete and his evil plans to demolish Toon Town. Goofy would stop air born pirates in his high flying adventure. Minnie would need your help to stop the mad scientist. Daisy would try to put out the fire that Donald's nephews huey dewey and louie accidentally started when playing around the fire works factory. Oswald would help keep the city dam from bursting and destroying Toon Town.
Every character would appear in 3 locations once at the beginning, once in the middle, and once at the end to award the winner. The characters would be placed on a revolving system so One character would be visible at a time and after each car passes by the turntables would rotate to reveal the next character to the next set of guests who are experiencing a different adventure.
