I posted a thread about this idea long ago, but I've since thought about it and have come up with a really coherent way of going about making it. The ride is obviously based on the scene from Aladdin where he and Abu have to escape the Cave during its collapse. Here goes:
The outside of the ride, obviously, is a giant recreation of the head of the Cave of Wonders.
The entrance to the line starts just outside of the mouth of the Cave and as you go through the queue, you come across the same things that Aladdin and Abu saw during their trek to the lamp. The rooms could include:
The Entry Stairwell:
The Treasure Room:
The Lamp Room:
You would board the Carpet where Aladdin, in the film, crosses the stones in the waterway to get to the mountain. The Carpet would gently ride along until you hit the first incline which also serves as the stairwell Aladdin climbs to reach the lamp. As you climb closer to the top the lamp comes into view and maybe have an AA Aladdin speaking the dialogue, "This is it? This what we came all the way down here to-ABU NO!". A booming voice over of the Cave of Wonders hits, "INFIDELS! YOU HAVE TOUCHED THE FORBIDDEN TREASURE! NOW YOU WILL NEVER AGAIN SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY!"
Your arrival to the top of the incline coincides with this dialogue where things take a turn for the worse (or in this case, the more exciting ) and the room all of a sudden turns from a cool blue aura to a flaming red one. The coaster begins rolling as you zoom down the mountain similar to the way Aladdin slides down it in the film. You would then follow a similar path to the one Aladdin and the Carpet take, coming back the way you came, but the scenes have turned to complete turmoil and are barely recognizable. You follow a track of ups and downs twists and turns and maybe even a loop de loop or corkscrew.
Eventually you'd end up flying right out of the mouth of the cave where the ride would transition back into a calm one, maybe accompanied by some Genie dialogue, "Thank you for choosing the Magic Carpet for all your travel needs. Please don't stand until the rug has come to a complete stop. Thank you, goodbye. Goodbye now." until the ride has come to an end. The exiting queue could be either the oasis or maybe even the palace as "Friend Like Me" plays over the speakers.
