Frequently on Micechat, the topic of expired rides inevitably comes up. Some people have a fascination with them simply because they never got a chance to ride them during their short time (such as the Rocket Rods). But sometimes it becomes near fanaticism towards the ride and, I'd imagine, anger about it's closure (Peoplemover, anyone?)
Let me paint a picture for you...
Remember watching Transformers, or Ninja Turtles back when you were a kid. Those shows were amazing and entertaining. Go watch an episode now and realize how absolutely terrible it truly is. Your memories make those shows and those rides great.
If they were to recreate and open some of these rides, there would be a sudden burst of attendance, then it would immediately drop off. There's a reason these rides were closed down. In particular: Adventures Thru Inner Space. I think this ride would be more embarrasing to ride on than any nostalgia could ever make up for.
I'm betting that 5 years after Honey I Shrunk The Audience is closed and replaced that people on Micechat will be begging for it's return.
Maybe I'm missing something, or just particularly cynical. I'm hoping I'm not the only one who feels this way though.
