    Little Mermaid ride video!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fBUMRk-nkdA

    Wow - - this is the mock-up video of the unbuilt Little Mermiad attraction for Disneyland. They should start building it Monday! This would be a smash with all ages if they followed through with the quality.

    Put it where the defunct Motor Boat Cruise lies fallow.

    Exclamation Re: Little Mermaid ride video!

    I totally agree with MerlinJones!! When I saw this video on the new Little Mermaid DVD that came out in October, I was blown away! Whether you're young or old, boy or girl, this attraction would appeal to everyone if it were done exactly like the video shows.

    Personally, I would consider this attraction an E ticket...again, if it were done correctly! Disneyland would surely have a hit with it!

    Re: Little Mermaid ride video!

    That's not bad for someone filming their tv. Was an excellent ride through and I'm glad I bought the DVD... if for no other reason that the ride-through. I think it would be one of the best attractions ever if they built it.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    It was located in the river by autotopia, why they got rid of it, I don't know. You can still see remnants of it by the park and still take a good look at em on Yesterland.com

    According to everything I've ever read about it, because of high cost of maintaining the boats.

    no- not a joke-

    This ride was in production- models were made- this was serious. Then the project was shelved.

    Check the Little Mermaid DVD- the info is all there.

    I guess it was orginally designed for Disneyland Paris or Tokyo, but it's definitely Anaheim-worthy.

    Re: Little Mermaid ride video!

    Very nice!

    Completely agree that Motor Boat area is perfect for it.

    BTW. they really should put all the quality they can, I can easily
    see how by scrimping WDI can totally ruin this ride. (just imagine
    EVERYTHING being painted flats like Aerial and Eric!!) Also IMHO
    they should use the TDL Pooh tech for it.

    Re: Little Mermaid ride video!

    Exactly Nephy, it was in some form of pre production from what I have heard but due to budgetary reasons (nee - Pressler) ODV carts were more appealing.

    I think that an attraction of this caliber would be an amazing addition to Dland, or any of the parks!

    Oh, WDI would want to go all out on it, like they always do. The upper management would want to cut back and save a buck.
