    There's a certain site out there that made an AE series of articles a few years ago that claims that AE was originally an Aliens ride that Eisner was nuts to build because he wanted to impress the pants off his teenage son who thought Disney was for wimps and kids. It then goes on to detail a story of how the whole thing turned into an arguement of Walt's Old Men VS the new design guys and how eventually somebody talked to Lucas and he was able to convince Eisner to tone it down and not go all the way into making a horror ride.

    Of course, this could all be "misjimformation" as usual, but it seems plausable with the GMR attraction and all. That sequence freaked the stuffing out of me because I was in the far right seat of the car and turned my head right to see the AA hiding in the hole waiting to pop out! Thankfully there was some kind of poor timing or misfire and only the last couple rows ever got a good look at the thing in action. It was worth it to get such an up-close look at the Witch AA, but next time I'm going to claim the middle!

    Re: Anyone REALLY miss Alien Encounter

    never been on Stitch, but went on AE a few times, the first time I was scared to death, not knowing what was going on, but after that first time, the thrill was gone and it was just another 4D attraction to me along the lines of Tough to be a Bug.

    Re: Anyone REALLY miss Alien Encounter

    Thank goodness the Alien franchise didn't go through and we got the attraction that we did. I highly doubt I would have enjoyed the Fox Alien storyline half as much as AE's.

    You know I used to think that same thing...AE was wicked scary, and while it was, listening to the recent replayings of it they've had on the net it wasn't as sinister as I remember. There were a whole lot of parts that were gimic-y for comedic effect...
    It was suprising, because how scary would it have been without all that?

    I'm glad you listened to it again and got all the humor in it.

    Re: Anyone REALLY miss Alien Encounter

    I remembered the parts like the maintanance guy getting eaten, and the whole Sarcastic S.I.R. but it is amazing what I had forgotten. It wasn't one of those rides I ended up knowing 100%.

    Let's put it this way, I was able to see the show with full knowledge of the entire script LONG before I saw it the last time
