A "National Treasure" ride at Disneyland? That's Nicolas Cage's wish, according to a published report.

"My biggest thrill would be if Disney was so happy with the movie that they gave it a ride. Because I love amusement parks and I love Disneyland and I would love to see a National Treasure ride. That would be a dream come true for me," the actor is quoted at the Contact Music website.

That would be really cool, but it would have to be in the right place...Liberty Square, New Orleans Square, America Pavilion at Epcot ? I don't think there is a place that Disney would put it, maybe the Hollywood Studios or DCA. In the right place, it could be a really awesome ride.

IS THERE IS ANY ROOM LEFT TO BUILD ON THE DISNEYLAND PROPERTY?I THINK IT MAYBE A BETTER IDEA TO BUILD AT THE FLORIDA RESORT WHERE THERE IS ALOT OF LAND.

Disney Hollywood Studios, replacing the Indiana Snores Stunt Show. And if Mr. Cage is so adamant about building a ride, he can certainly kick in sponsorship money like HP did with Mission: Space. In fact, hit up all the covert advertisers from the National Treasure franchise and get them to provide money as well, since they'll benefit from the additional exposure to the millions of riders.

I agree with Larry...although I highly doubt with the new Indiana Jones movie coming out they would replace that show. But, Hollywood studios is the perfect place to put in such a ride. And of course with a sponsorship from Nick himself would certainly set things in motion.

Now, what kind of a ride would we be talking about here? Simulator, 3-D, ????? What would be the best way to make this happen?
