I'm realy excited about this. I am hoping it will be more than BTTF with a new video.
Does anyone know...is the technology here more of a traditional simulator ride, or something more akin to Spiderman?
I wonder if this ride is gonna be the same as the concept for the simpsons ride that was proposed for Islands of Adventure. Jim Hill discussed the plans for that ride which sounded pretty funny.
Whatever it is..I know it is going to be great :)
I bet you its just going to be the same ride concept like BTTF just with Simpsons characters... Imax Simulator
i'm wondering why there hasn't been any concept art released for this ride. i'm a little skeptical on how good the ride will be, no concept art released, and doing a new themed ride in a year? that's it? just a year? i didn't think that would be enough time to gut the interior, replace it w/ a simpsons theme, redo the exterior to incorporate the simpsons, and put the film together. unless of course the just slap 2D art work on the walls and call it a day.
i won't be surprised if this ride is a failure, but i will be surprised if it's worth a visit (unlike the mummy).
Yup, they don't do any work on a new ride before they announce it to the interwebs so all the really bright bulbs can second guess them...
I don't think Fox would let their first Simpsons ride be done on the cheap. It's too important a show for them.
The only reason rides such as Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park are highly themed is because Lucas and Spielberg helped finance these attractions. I doubt Fox is going to be throwing money at a simulator ride.
Universal are not predictable. The did a fine job with Men in Black...queue and all. So who knows. But Simpsons, being a somewhat crudely drawn cartoon to begin with, might not inspire the greatest creativity with Universal's designers. Personally my expectation is that this will be a pretty much run-of-the-mill simulator ride, since there has been so little publicity behind its opening. The Harry Potter kuka arm ride is the one to look forward to...Universal have a terrific record with state-of-the-art technologies...and Rowling's involvement should guarantee top-notch theming.
I am pretty sure its going to incorporate much of the same technology that was used in the BTTF ride. I mean to house Simpsons in that huge space only means that its going to be some kind of simulator ride...
