    I was going to start a simelar thread asking where AAs had been installed in the US parks in the last 10 years. I can only think of the Buzz ones at his ride, and maybe the Ellen one put in the new Universe Of Energy, but that might be from 94.

    I do think rides that are as AA-intensive as HM and PotC are a thing of the past. I suspect that, even though it is very low-tech, Splash Mountain's approach to in-ride characters represents the next wave, and followed through with Indy. The alternate approach during this time period was the Great Movie Ride, which introduced us to an incredible Wicked Witch AA, and also featured those interchangeable "tour guides."

    Personally, I'd love to see an Indy-style vehicle dropped into a GMR-scale AA ride. For that matter, one of my pet ideas is tearing out the whole Autopia/MBC/Subs area in a few years and creating a submarine tour through a Sea Castle-style underwater city, where complex AAs can inhabit underwater vehicles, homes, and control centers, and simple-motion figures can operate freely in the water...

    I think AAs will always be integral in Disney attractions. But unlike the days of HM and PotC, AAs will be part of the ride's ensemble of features, not the star.

    there are no AA's in DCA? :confused: I could've sworn there's at least one AA in DCA

    I mean isn't Hopper a fairly advanced AA, and also they have a few in Muppetvision?

    actualy even with Mansion it's debatable weather the AA's are the real stars

    I really believe that the reason these rides haven't dated is because they get your imagination going and so that even though your not directly interacting with anything it makes you feel like your part of the story

    Indy does this really well and of course Buzz would do it (Roger Rabbit introduced nothing new and it works better then any of the fantasyland rides for most people and I think that's the reason)

    it depends it's all about how they can excite us and make us feel like we're part of the story and new technologies should always be a big part of that (along with good writing and effective use of the effects in non gimmicky fashions)
