Certain themes pop up repeatedly here at MiceChat and make for interesting conversation. Two of them are:
In the "Defending the Kingdom" thread, MasterGracey said:
- Innovative DL vs. Museum DL: should old attractions make way for new?
- Consistency of Theming (how important is it that a given ride fit the theme of the land it's in?)
I've been vocal in saying that I think the existing PeopleMover track should not simply support "another ride" but that the concept displayed should be relevant and forward-looking. But maybe that's not feasible, at least not without tearing down the entire track and starting over, and that seems a shame.
Then the thought occurred to me: why not upgrade Autopia? I don't know how many more decades or centuries the freeway system will remain in use, but it stands to reason that it will someday be replaced by something else. Why not take a stab at what that might be, and present that idea, using the same track layout as Autopia?
How would you react if say, WDI announced a maglev redo of the Autopia attraction? Would you say that the class of '55 had been violated?
