    How about it is like Jungle cruise in the begining, then things get rough. And the CM "Driving" Bails Out!(Each CM would have 10 differant Uniforms that would be able to be dryed while the CM just went and put on another one)
    So you are going down these rapids with no driver!(Or something like that.)

    I think it was Innerspaceman who once had an idea for a Sleeping beauty ride. I was a roller coaster, but not a roller coaster. There might be space issues but otherwise it had potential to be a truly great ride. Otherwise my vote goes for some sort of villain ride.
    You say Im a bitch like its a bad thing.

    I love the idea of a ride where the driver bails. Similar to the interactive CM work that is done on Great Movie Ride at MGM. That would be great. They jump into the water and swim off, change clothes, and get on another raft to do it over again.

    ^ Change clothes?!?!? Lol, the wardrobe department would be very busy with the washing load coming through from that one!

    I think DL needs a new high tech show (having gotten rid of the CBJ for that unspeakable Misnomer of a ride!). I am on the fence for clones. I think a version of Mickey's Phillarmagic would be a welcome addition to Toontown - if room is an issue, perhaps knock down the Snow White Theatre and somehow build the entrance through on the other side?

    For Frontierland, build a horse drawn cart style thrill ride ala Indy / ala Pirates / ala Mansion but with a creepy ghost town appeal featuring chilling FX to compliment the fast paced thrills (ala Alien Encounter) WoW! That might just work - combining the elements of Disney's BEST attractions to come up with something that's totally immersive and unique.

    Tomorrowland - work on a "Mission Space" type of ride system to replace innoventions & re visit the "Rocket Rods" idea only done with a proper budget and improvement on the Journey to the centre of the earth / Test Track Technology. A Treasure planet Dark Ride using Peter Pan style over head track would be cool too perhaps?!?!

    Now that's 3 "E" tickets & 2 "D's". Old Mikey Eisner would have a heart attack from the bill of that lot, lol

    Good luck figuring that one out. The biggest challenge to that is try not to be like KFB.

    I don't entirely agree with this because if I remember correctly the movie was a Disney flop.

    How big of a hit was Third Man on the Mountain? Granted, I wasn't even born until well after the movie was out, but I never even heard of it until I read somewhere that the movie had a part in inspiring Walt to build the Matterhorn Bobsleds. I don't think the success of the movie would have to be a factor in the quality of the ride (Atlantis sub ride, anyone?).

    If it were, what chance do we have of getting a truly original ride that is not based on some book/movie/TV show/character?

    When all of the "E" ticket attractions are gone, then the "D" ticket rides that are left will be the big deal. See? They can solve the need through attrition. Why bother putting in new thrills when you can just keep lowering the bar?

    Questions like this inspire pie-in-the-sky thinking, which many of you would might agree Walt was accused of in the early '50s ..... so here's my idea ...

    The crux of my E-ticket ride idea is not so much the theme or ride system ..... it is more the location and what it would do .......

    I am proposing that a ride or rides be constructed that would link Disneyland to DCA. This may require Management to give up on the idea of DCA being a seperate park ...... or you could charge a seperate fee to ride this ride(s) that would grant you admission into the "other" park (or use your parkhopper or AP priviledge).

    Think of a ride vehicle themed to a 1930's era airplane (like the one Indy got into in the beginning of Temple of Doom) that would connect Adventureland with Condor Flats. Or a vehicle like the Rocket Rods, or the Incredibles monorail, linking Tomorrowland with Hollywood Back Lot. Or a skyway-type ride linking the old Fantasyland Skyway building to Paradise Pier .....

    I remember two things as a child telling me "you really are about to enter Disneyland," ...... Seeing the Matterhorn from I-5, and seeing the Monorail cruise along Harbor and/or across the parking lot. That was Magic to me. So the idea of seeing an E-ticket (which the Monorail was, by the way) ride zooming around above your heads in the Esplanade as you make your way from the Tram Stop (or DTD, or hotel) is particularly exciting to me. For those of you familiar with the term, it (they) could be a "wienee" for the whole resort.

    Geyser Mountain is just ToT witha different theme why does everyone want it so much?

    also Frontierland has plenty of room to expand with it's old Festival area so I'd rather see them finish up that land before you start in on backstage areas (yeah I'd perfer something different for the backstage areas not MORE Frontierland, even though it could use being bigger so it's more of an actual Frontier but that's what the festival space is for)

    whatever it is, PLEASE DO NOT THEME IT AFTER A MOVIE....

    thats one thing that miffs me about disney sometimes, is they constant need/desire to bastardize every single ride by either theming it after a previous movie(tarzan's tree house, Indy, buzz lightyear) or by making a movie after the likeness of the ride, thus destroying any individuality the ride had (pirates, mansion - can i tell you how sick i am of hearing little girls screaming at the pirate captain calling out Johnny Depp's name?)


    Innovation, individuality, uniqueness (okay, 2 of those are the same thing) are what need to be applied to whatever ride Disney or DCA gets next.

    I would love to see a roller coaster type ride as well...but indoors. I think an outdoor coaster will have that carnival/cheap feel. Maybe something like SM and Indy combined. Universal tried this with Mummy's revenge, but I found it rather dull and slow, and the atmosphere on that ride was awful (cheap neon images of mummies?). I bet Disney could go all out with something like this.
    Marge: Barnacle Bill's Home Pregnancy Test? Homer, shouldn't we have gone with a better-known brand?
    Homer: But Marge, this one came with a corn-cob pipe!
    Marge: [reading from the test box] "Ahoy, Maties! If the water turns blue, a baby for you! If purple ye see, no baby thar be!"
    Homer: So, which is it? Blue or purple?
    Marge: Pink.
    Homer: D'oh!
    Marge: "If ye test should fail, to a doctor set sail!"
