Doesn't anyone else see a connection between the films Fantasia/Fantasia 2000 and the live-action Fantasmic!?
All the others felt too much like Peter Pan's flight (ride vehicles on tracks either flying over or rolling through London). Maybe if they incorporated some of the CCMB technology, they could liven up the concept, but I don't see them spending that much for a ride based on a 40- (or 50)- year-old film. Perhaps there's potential for a "Great Disney Classic Movie Ride," much like TGMR in DHS...but I doubt it again from the money aspect.
But I have thought for a long time that a huge Alice In Wonderland ride would be really cool. Falling down the rabbit hole could be way more realistic (looking and feeling like the movie) and scary. Riding through realistic sets from the Disney film. Seeing giant size flowers and furniture when Alice has been miniaturized... Maybe even jump through a looking glass and have some things happen from that book. It could be so awesome.
I dont know if a ride existed previously (I should really do research eh? :) ) but the Black Hole which isnt mentioned would of course be a dark coaster that needs to be done
there was a dark indoor coaster at Alton Towers entitled the black hole, but of course it wasnt licensed so there was no Maximillian or Vincent! :)
just imagine the last drop on the ride being into the black hole itself, then as you exit the ride the shop should resemble a quantum singularity :) ... what does one of those look like again?
I don't how it would be made into a ride but I'm kind of getting into those 1970s Disney/Kurt Russell flicks.
Fantasmic has elements of Fantasia so, in a way, already has a presence at the Parks.
So it's Mary Poppins for me. I think the variety of options made available by this movie would allow the imagineers to run riot.
I voted for Mary Poppins. The kids were just watching that yesterday. It's a great imaginitve movie with so many elements and distinct scenery. The animation, the roof tops, the city, the play room, and so on. I can think of several ride ideas.
design it as a start and stop dark ride / coaster. Universal suceeded in doing this with 'Revenge of the Mummy.' Begin as a dark ride. throw in a launch. Stop in another scene. Throw in another launch. Stop again. launch again. Unload into a gift shop.Mr. Niles, I look forward to the same survey for live action movies.
I have a 'Computer Who Wore Tennis Shoes' concept that's gonna blow you guys away! :o)
