Published: November 29, 2010 at 5:35 PMWow...great stuff. I have been somewhat of a lurker on these postings for a bit due to an unbelievably insane work schedule these past few months, but I am finally getting a bit caught up...for now, anyway!
I really do like all the ideas, however I have to rule out a few right off the bat:
1) I can't ice skate, so the skating rink is off the books (although it would be a wonderful idea for most others).
2) My rocking days are over and since the original lineup of Styx will never tour together again, I don't want to even have a chance of the current incarnation of Styx desecrating the classic songs while I am visiting "the World" - so, no Rock 'n' Roll Lagoon.
3) And regrettably, I am not into audience participation, mystery theater, or improv... although I am sure many others are indeed!
So, that leaves the Steam Boat and two theaters. I will vote for one of the three, but not yet... which one of you is offering the best deal for registered TPI fanatics? Do I get to visit the helm on the Steam Boat? How about front row, center at the theaters?
The best deal wins! =)
Seriously, all terrific ideas... if I ever own a theme park, I am hiring all of you to be part of my creative team for sure!

I'll even throw in a recreation of Jungle Cruise and your own bulldozer!
Published: November 30, 2010 at 3:59 AMJames, you had me at "four seats of your choice" (although I do need a fifth one for my third child), but the inclusion of exploding carnival rides and that final bulldozer comment put you way over the top! You got my vote, brother!
Published: November 30, 2010 at 4:20 AMYou've got the fifth seat. Need a booster? Wow, that was easy- I was going to throw in a "James Rao" character in the new stage version of "Newsies"!

By the way, NEWSIES is a totally under-appreciated Disney classic... I love that flick - Alan Menken RULZ!
Speaking of Alan Menken - TANGLED was pretty darn good too!

Adam i though yours would also be very pricey since guests would see it for free(or would they not?). I'll still try to post stuff if i'm out though!
