Okay, so I love the Lion King. I've always thought it would be cool as a roller coaster, and a finally thought of an idea.
This would ideally belong in Adventureland, but there is a lack of space there.
It would be half indoor, half outdoor, kind of similar to Expedition Everest.
The beginning would be like California Screamin', but with Simba being chased by the wildebeests all around the track. This will be outdoor.
Then, as the train goes up the first hill, the hyenas will be surrounding the track on elevated rocks. At the top, Scar will be sitting on his rock and will shout "Be Prepared" and that will introduce the first drop. This part will be indoors.
The track of the drop will resemble the elephant skull from the elephant graveyard. This will be outdoor.
Then, there will be a turn and another upward hill. Up the hill, we will see Timon and Pumbaa singing the Hula song. Since they are being chased by hyenas, there be another drop into a little spiral.
This next part will be indoors. Up another hill, there will be a change in theme. It will show Simba and Nala from the Can You Feel the Love Tonight scene. Then, the drop will be like a waterfall, and once at the bottom, we will experience Upendi.
One more hill, outdoors, and this time, it will be to the top of Pride Rock. We will hear "The Circle of Life" and the scene that corresponds with it (lifting Simba up). And, the roller coaster will end with a downward spiral around the rock. Below, so it's not just empty and boring, will be the Pride Lands that feature all of the other animals.
Like it? Hate it? Suggestions? Variations?
