    Midway Mania going into Cape Cod?

    Just over at Blue Sky Disney and they said it was a done deal for TSMM, but that it ain't going in the New York section of American Waterfront, it's going into Cape Cod!

    Isn't that going to be hard to theme it to? Well, the Imagineers have done great with everything else here so I'm sure they'll come up with an interesting take on the location.

    I didn't know there was any room in there to add an attraction like this...unless they take something out?

    I really don't think TDS will add another cloned ride unless they can put their own unique spin on it like they did Tower of Terror (or even their version of Indy). That's a park filled with attractions and shows you won't see anywhere else and it would be a real shame if TDS goes the way of the stateside parks and just starts throwing cloned rides everywhere.

    I don't buy into the whole notion of "cloned attractions are bad." Perhaps there's some argument to be made between the US resorts since there is some overlap in guests, but I'd find it very hard to believe that OLC would think that any but a tiny handful of people that would have gone to TDS because of a new TSMM attraction but for the fact that it's cloned from WDW.

    The question really ought to be if the attraction is being cloned because it's an exciting ride that will be of interest to the Resort's audience - or the ride is being cloned as part of a corporate branding campaign and to amortize the development costs?

    Lately, OLC has wanted to towards more family-oriented experiences such as "Turtle Talk" and "Hide and Go Seek!" So TSMM seems right up that alley.

    Re: Midway Mania going into Cape Cod?

    You guy's are forgetting. Honor Hunter said that it was getting a "VARIATION" of DCA's Toy Story Midway Mania. Not an exact clone. There will be significant differences between each version of the ride. The only things that are going to be the same is the queue, and the ride system/layout. I believe everything else will be changed to fit Cape Cod more appropriately.

    I hope they put a good spin on it. I hate to see Seas have the same rides you can find in other Disney parks. They need to keep it different and one of a kind. Its what makes Seas so special.

    I hate the idea of Crush at TDS. This one might work... the keyword is "might".

    I'm sure DisneySea will get an appropriate version of TSM, because I'm just not seeing TSM in the quiet, oceanside setting of Cape Cod.

    I'm thinking they might do the Mickey and Friends theme that was rumored a while ago for our Midway Mania. If anything, it'll probably be cool.

    Re: Midway Mania going into Cape Cod?

    I don't have the same aversion to cloned attractions that some do, and I think that both Turtle Talk and TSMM are quality attractions, but I just don't think they fit very well within the context of TDS. Both evoke more contemporary times than those represented at TDS.

    If TSMM is built at TDS, then the "New York" area would be more appropriate, with some place like Coney Island in mind. Cape Cod just seems a little too idyllic for such a colorful and fast-paced ride

    Aw, Mickey and Friends would be much better than Toy Story. Good ole' Pixar...
