This is a follow-up to another thread that has been locked now: A new Mickey Mouse-themed dark ride for WDW's Magic Kingdom.
It's something I've been thinking of for a while for improving the Magic Kingdom overall. It is a dark ride for the Storybook Circus section of the new Fantasyland. Originally, it was to be a new version of "Mickey's Mad House", a concept for the original predecessor of Storybook Circus known as Dumbo's Circusland, in which you traveled through a dark ride based on old Mickey shorts. But the concept of a dark ride themed to Mickey shorts didn't seem to fit. I had originally brought it up as a way to compensate for the loss of any references to the classic Disney shorts in the Magic Kingdom, now that Toontown Fair is long gone.
Anyway, at the same time, I found that in a long thread on the updating of WDW in general, there was once proposed, on another Disney parks forum, a dark ride for Storybook Circus which would play up the circus angle that was only vaguely hinted at in "Madhouse". It's called it Mickey's Big Top (you can Google it). After agonizing over it for a while, I had decided to just abandon the Mickey shorts aspect and play up the circus aspect, with a dark ride in a circus environment with an emphasis on all those posters scattered about the land. I will probably go ahead and name it to what it is being thought of as now: Mickey's Big Top. However, I might add on to that, have a bit of the Roger Rabbit ride in it, namely the ability to spin the vehicle somehow, and rename the ride to Mickey's Big Top Spin. For the location, I even thought of it replacing part of the Tomorrowland Speedway, like in this image below (the area in black is the new ride's area):
And here's a rough access point for the new ride's queue, right between Dumbo and the Great Goofini:
I had actually been working on the ride itself, so I'll get to that soon. Thoughts, comments, concerns?
