Hey there, hi there, ho there folks...
Here is something that I was pondering with my brother the other day, about Disney World (or Disneyland for that matter), and it bugged me to no end.
How many of us are aware that Disney, and Universal as well, are sitting on attraction goldmines? Not just any attractions mind you, but attraction licences with huge built in audiences just begging to be made into fantastic "ride through the movie" type rides...or even simulators and thrill rides.
For example, Disney now has the rights to the Muppets, but they only still have the 3D show? Why not put in a fantastic dark ride with the muppet characters? Why not re-do that whole back corner of Disney/MGM into a "Muppet Studios" type area (Which, according to Jim Hill @ jimhillmedia.com, was the original idea)?
Also, Disney has the hottest theme park license anywhere in Harry Potter. That's right, the hottest series of books and movies with loads of potential for "Great Movie Ride" type dark rides or at the least a great 3D show!
And Universal has the Lord of the Rings license! Imagine what you could do with that! Also, how about a great ride/walk through of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? If WB can sell the rights to Disney for Harry Potter, surely they can give them the rights to Charlie? A huge ride through of the factory? Count me in!
Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?
