    Non-Disney attractions that belong in Disneyland?

    Of course, Disneyland is the best of the best, when it comes to theme park attractions. But every once in a while you come across an attraction elsewhere that is good enough - and special enough to actually belong in a Disney park.

    I'll start with Mystery Lodge at Knott's Berry Farm. I think it includes wonderful story and special effects, and is thoughtful enough that it would have been at home here.

    How about your ideas?

    I totally agree with Mystery Lodge! While this isn't a specific attraction I'd love to see Disney use a ride system similar to Transformers at USH. Haven't ridden it yet but I've heard nothing but good things about it. Might be a nice replacement for Innoventions, as I personally wouldn't like to see a rollercoaster take its place since Space Mountain is right there. Just a thought!

    The ride system was very impressive, but I felt it was wasted on Transformers. The characters and settings from the films just aren't that strong, and, like the films the ride was a chaotic mess where you were never really certain what was happening.

    At the end, the first time I rode it, I said "Oh, it's over. So, um, did we win?"

    I'll agree with this one. Especially with all the detail that they put into the queue. I would love to see Disney adapt something like this to one of their properties. This would have been an awesome update to Star Tours if we didn't have the current edition.
    "You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    Mystery Lodge, yes. Disney could have had Harry Potter, but they didn't play ball with Rowling - a shame.

    My husband thinks that Disney should do something with the world of Tolkein, and The Hobbit.

    With all due respect, IMHO Disney would have blown it anyway. What USF did with the Harry Potter area actually RAISED the bar. Disney's answer was Carsland which, again IMHO, pales in comparison. The Harry Potter attraction focused so much attention to detail that I think the mark would have been missed by the Disney crew.

    In the end I think it's going to end up better for everyone. Disney has to know that the bar has been raised and put out a top level effort on the next expansion/refurb/gate.

    I'd go with Knotts also. But I'd pick either or both the Calico Mine Ride and the Log Ride. In fact Walt Disney himself helped out in the design of the Calico Mine Ride so it would fit perfectly. And IMO the Log Ride is much better than Splash Mountain!
