im wondering if this wasnt a leak to let everybody know the DAK expansion is still happening despite what was posted on other sites this week...sounds like the vekoma simultor system with greater movement .....really excited for this

I really hope that they come up with some creative/ fresh ideas for this attraction. The "flying over a spectacular landscape"-simulator has been done many times. That's also why I'm not really excited about this new ride.
But hopefully they will prove me wrong!

Basically, it is the Simpsons with a bit more movement and maybe your feet will dangle? Where has Dominick been, he usually complains about 3D movie rides?

Soarin 2 sounds much more interesting. Id rather fly over actual video footage than CG. Can't see myself booking a trip to Florida for a 3D movie that moves. But hey this is years in the future so we'll see then.

So they are definitely going with 3D?
I remember the last time imaginering was talking about the Sourin ride they still weren't sure if it would be 3D (what was stunning to me because it's the only reason the movie became a success).
Can't wait to actually see these blueprints.

Wish and you shall receive NB ;) I'm not against 3D rides, just that Universal needs to make a ride without 3D. Considering this will be an inverted Soarin' I'm all for it.

I'm looking forward to this. I know it's just a simulator, but everyone I've taken on Soarin for the first time are pretty blown away (despite the dirty lenses). This takes it up a notch and if it's as "realistic" as Soarin, I really think people are going to love it.

My only question is that if it's in a 6-story building, what will the building's facade look like? Because that's a huge building, and it's not going to look like a mountain, I'm pretty certain.

Another 3d sim ride...*yawn, more excited for the dwarfs mine coaster and the new potter land

Dominick.... you've been a ghost lately. I miss our friendly debates. Good to see you back.

If they build it will anyone come. Stationary 3D movies like Soarin get old really quick. Disney would never do it but an up dated Buzz Lightyear shooter type ride based on the Avatar Mechs would be so much cooler. I want to shoot some Navi and burn down the home tree like the in the movie

Awesome! I love this idea!

This ride should benefit from the same system of rotating storylines as the current version of Star Tours. I'm sure the 3D visuals will be impressive, but after Star Tours 2.0, it might be a bit of a letdown if the storyline is always the same.

Uh...I doubt they will have you shooting the good guys in this ride...

Investing in complicated and massive showbuilding construction activities, instead of investing in original mindmoving imagineering.
Even if the film is 'excelling', this sounds like a "total give up" on the level of imagineering really a flight through Pandoora...
It sounds like the "corporate-big-money" redundant "end-of-imagineering-creativity" syndrome. The line between having the "ride" (??) in WDW, or having it in your "local" Imax, is shocking flimsy-thin. Who would care about the twiggling seats ??? ....

This sounds awfully familiar to the leaked info from Stitch Kingdom/WDW FanBoys posted last year. The only new bits are the confirmation of 3d and ADA compliant. Too bad the real E Ticket for this area was nixed and we have to pimp up this rides status as a "wannabe E".
