    horrible ideas thread 2

    I was looking for this thread but couldn't find it. Post the worst idea you can think of for a new ride at Disneyland. All of the rides should have some kind of link to an existing franchise that Disney either owns or could buy. For example:

    Star Trek's Space Pirates of the Caribbean
    - Forget Captain Kirk or Captain Picard, the best captain of the Enterprise is Captain Jack. Ride along with him and his motley crew as he battles the Klingon's Davey Jones and Blackbird who are attacking the space station Black Pearl. Dodge photon torpedoes and race through the burning wreck of the space station as you try to find the space treasure before they do. Also, enjoy the classic theme song reimagined by Daft Punk in a techno / disco style.

    Anything related to episodes 1, 2, 3, and 6 of the Star Wars franchise.....

    such as;

    ~Re-themed PeopleMover for speeder bikes.

    ~Magic Eye theater presents the poetry of Jar-Jar Binks

    ~Naboo Undersea Tours (to replace Nemo)

    ~Laugh Floor er, um, Jaba the Hut's party room(to replace Innoventions.....ok, maybe this isn't the worse idea in the Galaxy )

    ~Death Star part two (re-themed Space Mountain)

    That Darned Cat's Parent Trap the Ride. Join Dean Jones as he tries to keep the identical twin cats Hayley Mills has entrusted to your care separate and out of trouble. Will he be able to save the day? Will your help be what carries him through? Only the massive show stopping "Kitty Sock Hop" scene will tell for sure, as hundreds of animatronic teeny boppers gyrate, each holding their own Identical Twin Cat.
    Credibility is to be sought for. Credulity is not. Sadly the latter is our normal human state.

    I love it (er, hate it, um, you know what I mean )

    Will there be a Vicky bobble-head souvenir I can purchase at the "Let's get together" gift shop located at the exit?

    Re: horrible ideas thread 2

    - Remodel Tomorrowland with brown paint, a brand new exhibit hall that out-does Frys & Best Buy. Build a "hot rod" ride on the PM track that can pop a wheelie. Turn a ride facility into a pizza stand. And bring EPCOT's 3 year old film to Disneyland about shrinking people - Set in the year 1994.

    - Take the classic PotC and add a franchise element to it.

    - Make It's A Small World more sugar coated, with Disney Characters.

    - Build a park across from Disneyland. Add some off the shelf rides and cloned film attractions from WDW to keep the costs down ... everyone should love it. People will for sure, line up to Harbor Blvd to get inside.

    - Make the scenery along the Rivers of America more natural, with more shrubs .. remove Cascade Peek. No one will notice.

    - Build a new set of Bobsleds, and make the padding so minimal, so that you get more banged up, than ever before.

    - Build a new fleet of Monorails, using monkeys to engineer them.

    - Meet & Greets! Build some. Easiest way to get people to come in, and don't have to bother building new rides, with expensive ride systems.

    - Bring in Starbucks, and make the interior look like a 2013 Starbucks store anywhere in OC, with some light "Main Street" theming.


    OH...

    WAIT A MINUTE !!

    Re: horrible ideas thread 2

    The Thread Title didn't say "ride" on the front page and my mind instantly flashed to raspberry frosted churros...

    You want me to invent a bad ride? Something I never want to see at Disneyland?

    An Omnimover replacing Main Street Sidewalks comes to mind, but that's got no theming. We've already got Innoventions; does it count as a ride because it moves? We could follow Barnum's lead and put "This Way to the Egress" and folks would think they were on a ride...

    "Donald Duck's Bad Day" would be a dark ride except for the constant flashes from various explosions. The sound track would be a deafening combination of Duck, explosions, collisions and other awful forces an angry Donald throwing a three-minute temper tantrum because someone has eaten the last pickle. You and the nephews would "duck and cover," huddling in your ultra-exposed "rickety" break-apart ride vehicle. Epileptics would be advised not to ride.

    Um, there is nothing wrong with 6! And 3 was the best of 1-3, which isn't saying much, but it is!

    CircleVision 360.2

    Every screen has a different Star Wars movie going on at the same time. And then they do Marvel movies with the same concept.

    And you must stand for all 2-3 hours!

    Submarine Voyage to Gunga

    Board one of 8 submarines .. with your new "humble servant" Captain Jar Jar Binks.

    He will take you on a journey through the planet core ... as it is demunded by de gods itiz.

    You will encounter Goober Fish....

    Jar Jar will bumble his way to "BIGGER" fish .. .(vary scary!!) .....

    He will nearly crash into Big Bad Boss Nass' Chamber .. as Jar Jar screams ... Weesa Gonna Die! Just before "Da Force" stirs your craft away from crashing.

    You return safely .. after a nice 15 minutes of Jar Jar speaking the entire time.

    It will be a sure - V Ticket experience.

    Pirates of the Caribbean becomes Princesses of the Caribbean and it will be a boat ride of video clips from Disney Princess films.

    Splash Mountain is themed to the movie "Splash" as Eisner (I kid you not) originally intended!

    Darth Vador Escape

    In the same vein as Magic Mountain's Superman Escape .....

    Come board a ride vehicle that will seat 5. And take a journey on the same route as the 1967 PM did ... on a ride that is exactly 60 seconds long. You'll be on banked turns the whole way. It will be the fastest Disney Theme Park attraction ever! There will be about 4 Darth Vadors spread along the track to scare you.

    The ride will have an hourly capacity of only 500 - Due to the dispatch time intervals between each vehicle, and the short vehicles to make the hard-pin turns.. Lowest capacity for any thrill ride in any Disney theme park. But it won't matter. The long line will elude people to think it's massively popular. Because of the ride's 80 to 100 miles per hour speeds ... only the most fittest .. most healthiest people may ride. Basically ... only those training to become military, firemen, or police forces.

    Just in case, anyone blacks out - there will be a special undergound exit directly to First Aid. With a bed on wheels and 2 CMs ready to whisk you away, quickly.
