    Re: OH-EM-GEE Original Rides

    An idea I've had forTomorrowland was a space expedition. The pre-show would be like you're in part of a large spaceship, traveling through space. Here you are given the instructions for the mission, where you will be conducting a survey of some new planet. Of course, on the way you run into some emergency and the ship is damaged. You have to escape in these smaller craft (omnimovers) where you leave the ship and have to search the planet for the necessary whatever to repair the mothership before it blows up or something. While surveying, you run into aliens, creatures, robots, whatever before finding your target and "rushing" back to the ship in the nick of time.

    Or something like that.

    Autopia could be moved to DCA and turned into the LA Freeway. That way, a new and more futuristic car ride can be put in Tomorrowland. Possibly something to do with suspended cars(hovercraft).

    And if they were to do the LA Freeway, the cars wouldn't even have to move!

    I've thought the same thing. If you think about it, the old MTTNW was a scenic trip through the desert like the JC is a trip through the jungle. There is plenty of property for another train ride with some underground elements, etc. I added a picture to illustrate: Still lots of blank property where Cascade Peak was and it extends all the way up to the DLRR track. How often is the big picnic ground used anyway?
    This picture was borrowed from ImagineeringDisney.com and cropped. It shows the original layout of the MTTNW superimposed over the BTMRR. Look at all the empty space.

    ^ I would love if they brought back Mine Train in some form. Thunder Mountain's a nicely themed coaster, but thrill rides can only offer so much. Frontierland could really benefit from a slower-paced, detail-heavy ride that allows you to soak in the environment and become immersed in its world.

    I second this. If there were one past attraction I could experience, it would absolutely be Mine Train.

    That would be interesting. It could tie in Walt Disney as well -- he was a key figure in influencing Gene Autry to move the Angels from LA to Anaheim. Perhaps this will make some people learn something about Walt that they never knew before.

    I'm sorry, I'm not seeing a LOT of empty space here. The biggest areas that currently are not seeing much usage are the areas bordering the Rivers of America, and the area currently populated by Big Thunder Ranch and just north of there. Definitely some area that can be reused or repurposed, but not really very much.

    I agree with this quite a bit; slower-paced, detail-heavy attractions are just as valuable as thrill rides are, and thrill rides can only offer so much, but are not the Rivers of America, to some degree, just that sort of attraction? A trip on the Mark Twain is hardly a thrill ride. Ditto for the Rafts to Tom Sawyer Island. Not exactly speedboats.

    I have to admit, compared with days past, Frontierland really has very few overall attractions, period. It could use a few more, I think.

    Maybe they really need to build on some of the current "backyard" land of Frontierland, into what is currently backstage. Might go past the berm, past the current DLRR tracks, but that may be necessary to really add some extra value to Frontierland, which definitely deserves it.

    Re: OH-EM-GEE Original Rides

    From that photo, could there be a way build a detailed attraction in just the cascade peak area and in the festival arena? It does not need to be as long as the orignal attraction but it could still be as detail heavy.

    ^ True. I was thinking more along the lines of Jungle Cruise, as well as POTC and Haunted Mansion-- a series of scenes forming a certain world that, though a part of the overall land, are very specific and unique unto themselves. The Mark Twain/Sailing Ship Columbia are a very different breed of attraction that don't really compare to anything else, they don't follow that same formula. They do follow a track and have several specific scenes and sights to see, but the entire experience it isn't as meticulously constructed as with other attractions, and the freedom that the Guest has to peruse around the ship really sets in apart from your standard ride vehicle. And regarding the rafts, although are a very clever method of transportation that help enhance the overall story and theme, they don't really offer enough to qualify as an "attraction" in my book, more of a nicely themed story element.

    Re: OH-EM-GEE Original Rides

    Here's an idea I had last night: A spook-house style dark ride, but in Tomorrowland. Have the setting be some sort of Orwellian dystopia or something. It just needs to have a creepy vibe to it, maybe robots that seem to be helping at the beginning of the ride, but by the end are trying to wipe you from existence. A little dark for Disneyland, yes, but something different. You could work in some sort of cautionary warning into the story. I don't know..it's early and this might not seem like such a great idea when I'm more awake.
