    Re: Enhancements to and Re-imaginings of Existing Attractions

    I see many problems with alternating trips on star tours.


    #1. Everyone will want to go on the new ones for a good period of time.
    #2. The old one will look older than the rest and kinda stick out.
    #3. If it is randomly selected, I predict manny huffy people who "never get to go on ________ version.

    #4. If not random, some will most likely wind up more popular than others, making it difficult when groups of people want to wait for a certain one.

    I'd love to see new movies, but I see it turning into a madhouse if options are being offered.

    it would be super fun though, they can make the queueing area video have a tour reservation chick that tells them what lines are for each and if people want to go on the new ones more, they just run more units playing the new ones, doesn't seem that hard

    Attraction plussing should be something that Walt Disney Imagineering focuses on a lot. Keeping aging attractions, for example the Mickey Mouse Revue at Tokyo Disneyland, up to date with technology. In fact, it is a better investment than constantly building new rides. You keep your current rides constantly appealing instead.

    Assuming that DCA ideas are also welcome in this thread...

    I've always thought that Mullholland Madness, a decidedly bland coaster, would have been so much better as a dark ride. Really, all it needs are some walls, scenery, effects, and a score. The track is already built.

    Maybe they could theme it as an out-of-control trolley in San Francisco or something (Besides, SF is pretty poorly represented in the park). I'm envisioning a much more intense, Mr. Toads type of experience.

    I know artists like to go back and massage thier work or to place thier current understanding on older works, but it very seldom is successfull
    As an artist (composer), I agree with Yendorb's assessment. When I look at older works I try to only do a modicum of clean-up and not drastically change anything... it does kill the work.

    I'd agree with the pyrotechnics on POTC, but as previously mentioned there are often stuck boats or enormous queues of boats and I think I would end up braving the kraken and jumping out of my boat than being stuck by that.

    I think HM would be nice if they incorporated the ambience of the Phantom Manor into it, Maybe a full orchestral score of the classic tune in parts.

    Re: Enhancements to and Re-imaginings of Existing Attractions

    I think it would be awesome if Star Tours had different tours. They could seperate the lines so people could go on the one they wanted. This doesn't differ too much from people waiting in a line on a rollercoaster to ride the first car. People will wait longer for what they want, so it shouldn't really affect anything too much.

    Despite the fact that I didn't like the new Star Wars movies (compared to the old ones) it would be nice to see Star Tours updated to correspond with the new movies.

    This is totally random but I would love to see the Tattooine cantina in the line-que XD With that cool music they had for that scene, I think I would die happy!

    That sounds like a really good idea. And I agree, I was quite disappointed in how little SF and it's surronding areas were represented, IMO it's the best part of CA! (I did enjoy that my town, Vallejo, has its own chili!)


    I like the idea of plussing rides, as long as they are well thought out and not added just to capitalize on something. It gives the rides fresh, plus it lets the imagineers do something they couldn't do before due to limits in technology.

    I think the HM enhancements are a good example for me. I absolutely hated it as a little kid, not just the ghosts and the darkness, but the massive amounts of heads popping up everywhere, it became really tedious and quite terrifying and lessened the enjoyment of the ride for me. But with the new attic scene, it made me really fall in love with the ride and the couple of popping up guys in the graveyard are just enjoy to give you a good carnival haunted house startle without overdoing it.

    I do like that idea. Make the drops seem like you're speeding down those steep hills.
