    Hilsbro's uber cool Epcot World Showcase Ride idea!

    I was reading the many many threads on here about the wonderful park called EPCOT and its lackluster Section called "World Showcase" when an Idea hit me....not a theme or show idea...but an attraction Idea...mainly focused @ the Germany pavilion

    Journey through the Dark Forest: A "Grimm" voyage through Fantasy

    From the title you may have already pulled the theme of the ride, it is a semi-spine chilling trip through the Grimm fairy tales....The Grimm fairy tales make up a good chunk of German folklore and beliefs..

    So now I am going to brainstorm at an Idea for the attraction

    Entrance:

    The entrance of the attraction will be etched out into a storefront and will be a library As you journey along the rows of book shelfs that slowly transforms into the Dark forest and as you make your way to the loading zone you then approach the ride vehicle it's self, a carriage (a la "doom buggy")

    The first Scene:

    After you load into your "Carriage" You begin to travel into pure darkness...and in the darkness you hear a voice..."Once Upon a time...."
    as the voice trails off you see a small girl in a red hood warn you not to journey farther "You must not go further..There are dangers beyond...dangers beyond Your wildest Dreams...You have been warned..Prepair for your "Grimm" end"...at this point in the ride there is still a creepy feeling but the smell of gingerbread seems to fill the air as the lights begin to brighten and you approach a Gingerbread House with 2 plump Children chewing away on the Sweet Cottage...a voice is quietly heard and a face appears in a window..."Eat more"...the carriage begins to round the corner and you enter into the side of the house and you see the kids locked into cages with the witch Reading a recipe book and as you turn the next corner you see the plump Boy push the Old lady into the oven

    Part 2 Coming Up soon

    This kinda sounds similar to the ride over in Norway ( Maelstrom ) but it's still cool!

    I like the idea, but I would hardly call the world showcase lackluster. I could sit in little nooks and people watch and immerse myself in the place for hours. But then thats just me.

    Nope, it's me! My favorite places are France, UK, Morroco, China, and Italy - which is 5/11.

    I have to admit its an interesting ride idea... that being said, it is similar to Maelstrom, but I have been hearing the possibilities of a new country possibly being announced for the 25th anniversary with a potential E-Ticket ride with a folklore theme of that country (think Asia), but those kind of rumors have been floating around for a long time... so I wont hold my breath.
