INTROIt would be hard to title this place. But Disney Universe of Adventure would work best, but I don’t want to use “adventure” because there is already another adventure that takes place in California! Maybe Disney Universe? It takes place in multiple planets, and has the theme of adventure thorugh planets and technology. It is the future, and it isn’t all made out of concrete! My Idea of a Marvel Third Gate wouldn't just be Marvel Land. It would attract all audiences (hopefully), and it would be stunning. It would be inspired by the heroism and characters of Marvel, but it wouldn't be "ride the movies". I am a 14 year old guy, so my opinion of incorporating Marvel into the parks is a little bit biased , but I will just outline a few things that would be cool. Enjoy!
THE ENTRANCEMy Idea of a Marvel Theme Park's entrance wouldn't be just a a giant mural of comic strips . It would be grand and immersive. Think the entrance to Asgard, Thor's planet.
^The bridge could be one of two things: The actual entrance, or a the outside portion/track for a high speed RSR type of ride through the Universe of Thor.
The "Hub" design is over rated, yes. But the Castle at Asgard is a perfect center. Inside I think a walk through attraction would be cool.
THE LANDS1.ASGARD - the “buena vista street” I was going to say the “main street” but DCA can hold it’s own
4.HERO CITY- Kinda of like Hollywood land, a street a facades, and indoor there would be extreme hi tech dark rides either built on Iron Man or Captain America. This street would start out in 40s theme like the time of Captain America, and somehow transition to present day, ending with a Stark Tower of Terror. jk hahah. But Stark Tower would work as a drop ride, and I love drop rides. An indoor coaster/dark ride would be great for a Hulk ride.
5.BARSOOM- This is Mars in John Carter. It would be this park’s adventure land. Full of scenery (or lack of) in Barsoom. An E ticket Indy type EMV ride would DEFINITELY work here. Roaming alien infested Barsoom would make for a really fun ride.
6.PANDORA- I guess this is also an adventureland. A Forbidden Journey type flyer ride. This would have the giant tree of souls as a centerpiece. Inside the Tree of Souls would be a 4D Avatar Experience Theater. A boat ride would work here too! And a wonderful restaurant full of colorful and exoctic foods would be great!
2.THE GRID- Tron. Highspeed. Indoor. Light Cycle ride. Maybe Underground. Permanent ElecTRONica. Arcade too. This is where all the shops would go, because I would try to limit the generic shops of each land. This would maximize space for other lands.
3.Land of Evil- The dark snowy mountains of the Frost Giants (Thor) Would set the mood of this haunting place. An upcoming animated film titled “Frozen” based off of the Snow Queen stories, would have a fitting place here. I have kind of an imagination block on this land, because snow is limited. An ORIGINAL attraction would work here, maybe a water ride? I also would like to incorperate Maleficent into this place, because the live action film is going to come out soon, and it looks awesome. An Expedition Everest type roller coaster/dark ride through the mountains featuring ice giants could be here as well. A show like world of color with more fire works and fire would be cool here. I don’t know what else, it has so many possibilities...There is an untitled Henry Selick directed film (he did Coraline) coming out soon. I have been to the studio, but I can’t say anything about it. It might work here. Maybe some childrens rides.
1. Entryway and bridge to Gold Covered Asgard.
2. Underneath the Snowy mountains of Evil is The Grid.
3. The snowy mountains, sets the skyline for asgard. I know this isn’t geographically correct, but either is Thunder Mountains next to New Orleans
4. Hero City, with shops and dark rides.
5. The entry way to the dry and rusty Barsoom (Mars).
6. The Tree of Souls in Pandora looks over a lake that is a continuation of the lake in Asgard.
That’s it! A great way to execute Marvel into the parks with other themes of adventure and Heroism. And there is so much things you could do with this theme!
