    Nemo's Tribute to the ol' Subs

    Does the Nemo ride pay a tribute to the subs inside the attraction?

    Yeah, in a lot of places.

    Especially at the end where you can see a Sea Serpent and Mermaids in the rock structures where they used to be originally.

    Also in the commentary at the end, something along the lines of "Let's get going before we something really crazy like a Sea Monster, or some Mermaids!"

    The shipwrecks were in the original.

    And the grouper at the beginning is very nostalgic.

    The serpent is noticable, but the mermaid is abstract.

    It goes beyond being an homage to the original, it's more as if Nemo is a remix.

    There are innumerable references to the original. Sometimes as direct quotations: "Through our sonar hydrophones we can actually hear the fish talk," or as simply as recycled iconic sound effects from the original soundtrack.

    Re: Nemo's Tribute to the ol' Subs

    Does anyone have a clear pic of the serpent/mermaids?
    I've only managed to get on the attraction once and even though I was watching out for them at the end I didn't catch them (and I've never seen a clear shot)

    How about the infamous pipe with the notation "TL59," the year that the original subs opened.

    The dialogue in the beginning as you're leaving the port is pretty much taken straight from the original attraction. things like "ship rigged for getting underway" sounds like it's so australian but it was the original dialogue. There's also taking the sub down to 8 0 phathoms which is then followed by using the hydrophones to actually hear the fish talk.. only the former "rrwaweaaww" sounds are suddenly interrupted by a clown fish looking for his son

    You know, I've often wondered whether Nemo Subs were planned before the movie so that they could pay a tribute to Captain Nemo from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

    Re: Nemo's Tribute to the ol' Subs

    In the scene with Nemo & Squirt at the beginning, then Marlin says: "Oh no, lost again... NEMO!" then the next dialouge from the 1st mate says: "Captain, we're approaching the EAC". Depending on how your helmsman is driving sounds like "Captain Nemo".

    It's probably not an offical tribute, but I thought that was kinda neat.

    The mermaid appears before the sea serpent does. Her hair is made of seaweed.

    Another tribute is the "deep sea volcano" scene.

    The sea bass in the lagoon I believe is from the original. Most people mistake it as a shark.

    The lost city scene in the lagoon is a tribute to the lost city of atlantis scene from the original.

    How so? Just the fact they are there?

    The dialogue and spiel in the beginning is very much like the Original
    There is a Sea Serpant and Mermaid "hidden" in the attraction as well
