View Full Version : Ideas for New Dark Rides@DL?

I have been thinking about this for awhile, and now that Disney is designing a winnie the Pooh ride for critter country, i can finally put it somewhere. Disneyland is known for their dark rides, yet they have not built any more a really long time. If you could design any dark ride at Disney, what would it be?
<BR>I for one would like to see a Hunkback of Notre Dame dark ride, possibly in the old Skyway system shack in Fantasyland. I would love to see how the Imagineers recreate the feeling of Quasimodo jumping from building to building. anyone else?

I'd like to see a dark ride, and have it exit into a gift shop with items that aren't overpriced. Now THAT would be a ride!

A good dark ride would be of journey to atlantis ( a disney movie) ,, the could use the indy vehicles and have it work like ( the great advenures of spiderman )they could use projectors for the animation since the movie is animated.
<BR> they could have where the vehicle travels thorugh darkened caves and caverns. then the enterence to the cave collapses. they then r forced to go deeper into this "cave" to find a way out before the cave collapses any more . so the vehicle could go though the cave having encounters with certain things i would leave that up to the disney people so any wayz the vehicle would eventually find its way out and thats the end to me that would be a pretty good dark ride

hmm, howabout a spiderman-type ride themed to a disney movie, with the spiderman technology, i dont' care whatever the theme is.

I think they should build a crazy spiderman like ride with the classic disney characters.

Magnum will always rule!

one for Atlantis would be pretty cool.

Actually, I think that an Atlantis ride will go in the old Submarine voyage place. two problems with that though: the old entrance was made into a autopia gift shop and the movie hasn't been very popular with audiences so far. we'll see...

Disney needs to do something NOT involving Disney related characters or theme for once, and they need to do something big budget, but with all the budget cuts thats nearly impossible.

I say Disneyland Does a sort of Test Track ride only themed to Gone in Sixty Seconds. Make it a high speed pusuit. Make it so you feel as though you jump over a bunch of cars then get into a canal be like you ingage the Nitro and the ride excelerates to high speeds and the run into a bunch of banks at high speend then make it so you spin out and it looks like the cops have you and you punch it into the station where you get away. that could have some potential. where the put it i don't know but it would be fun! thats for sure!

one themed to aladdin on a magic carpet it must be really good

Whats the point of doing something not themed to Disney? It is Disney World, after all.
<BR>I think that anything themed with the Villians concept is cool. A dark ride would work with that.

Actually, WDI has a new generation technology they are experimenting with called Cave 3D. Bascially, this type of ride would use an Indy-style vehicle and it would be surrounded with projections that give the appearance of holographic sets around you. There is more information about this over on screamscape.com in the Disney-MGM section. Originally, it was rumored to be the replacement of the Great Movie Ride.
<BR>It sounds cool, but I doubt Disney has anymore big budget dark rides in the immediate future, they seem to be more impressed with cheap carnival rides.
