In another thread started yesterday regarding a Cars overlay on the Autopia attraction I posted the following quoted material. Today, I've expanded on that idea and wondered what others thought.
I envision the first level utilizing the Autopia track as it is for the most part with some path modifications for perhaps structural purposes of the show building; but, ultimately being a lushly filled area with various exotic vegetation that could be placed along the track so the speeder bikes can fly by all the trees and plants like in Star Wars. By using a lush entrance of plants where the current Autopia cue starts, guests would enter into the show building.
Another version could be of the pod races from Episode 1. Building onto the extended rock work done for FNSV. Inside would resemble the pod racing track. For the Pod racers I would like to see a small scale maglev system to give the cars a floating ability as they move about the track. An outside portion of the track could pass by the current cue for Autopia, which would be redesigned to look more like the stadium'esk seating from the start/finish area of the pod races.
Envisioned for the second level of the show building and most notably where the monorail will pass through the show building will be a Little Mermaid darkride using the omnimover technology like HM. Again, disguising the show building with rock work from the Nemo addition, with upper level waterfalls cascading down into the sub lagoon and motorboat cruise area. I would see guests entering the show building over by where Gummie Glen use to be.
This show building would house two rides with two different ride systems, sorry No Loops, but perhaps it would have a launch. The show building will be disguised and give a smooth transition from one land to another.
