A former Imagineer opened up about an original idea for what eventually became "Grizzly River Run":
An Attraction called "Flash Flood Rapids," a whitewater-rafting ride with animatronics set in a flooded ghost town. You were dispatched from a breakaway wooden dam. Your raft washed through dynamite tents, a sinking ghost town with show scenes inside the buildings. In the buildings there was a card game to be played from the chandeliers, a bank robbery in progress, a flooded soap factory bubble machine dropping suds on you, etc. It ended by you being sucked down a flooded mine shaft.
Is this original concept a better idea than the actual finished product?
