Next Walt Disney Challenge 3Walt Disney World: The schedule has been changed, so this week, contestants must make a 3D or 4D show.
From Andy MilioFirst of all, I have decided to change the schedule up a little. The parade challenge is now a water ride challenge, and that challenge is being moved to Week 6. So here is the updated schedule:
Posted January 30, 2011 at 12:29 PM
3. 3D/4D Show
4. Themed Roller Coaster
6. Water Ride
7. Themed Land
8. Theme Park
Now for the challenge: this week, you guys must create a 3D or 4D show for any Disney park. Please tell the name of the show, what park it is in (which land it is in, as well), if it has live actors (like T2 at Universal), estimated length, a storyline (short or full), preshow (optional), and examples of the 3D/4D effects.
Again, nobody was eliminated last challenge, as we had a drop-out. This challenge is due by February 8th. Good luck!

From Andy MilioFor now, I'm gonna claim an Incredibles 4D show for Pixar Place at DHS

From Tim WNobody is eliminated again? So I get another week, as people must really not like wonderland all that much.
Posted January 30, 2011 at 8:31 PM
From Andy Milio^You're in luck, Tim. I guess nobody else will drop out, as everyone else has posted 2 ideas. And I liked the wonderland idea, for the most part.

From Eric SDarn, Incredibles was the idea that I had, but alas I'm too late. Back to the drawing board. Btw, I just noticed that the themed restaurant week was taken out. That's disappointing. I had a great idea.
Posted January 31, 2011 at 10:16 PM
From Andy Milio^It was? It wasn't in the schedule from Challenge 2. But yeah, the themed restaurant will play a part with the hotel challenge. And you can do Incredibles as well. As long as they aren't identical :)

From Joseph CatlettComing soon to the sites of Muppetvision 3D on both coasts.....
Posted February 1, 2011 at 11:41 AM
THE MUPPETS GO TO THE MOVIES IN (COMPLETELY, TOTALLY, UNNECESSARY AND EYE CROSSING) 3-D!
Yes, that is the actual title. It is the Muppets after all, so why not be a little snarky. It will look great on a marquee sign.
Details to follow.
From Andy Milio^Ha ha, I agree with the title :D
Posted February 1, 2011 at 5:03 PM
From Randall PeekIn view of the recent fire at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, one of their classic attractions is in serious need of an overhaul. In light of this, I call dibs on the Enchanted Tiki Room.
Posted February 1, 2011 at 9:25 PM
From Eric SThe restaurant was from the original one, so it was probably taken out before that, I just didn't notice. And I might have to do Incredibles as well, but I probably won't.
Posted February 2, 2011 at 2:39 PM
From damond harriscan we do a simulator ride like the simpsons or jimmy newtron?
Posted February 2, 2011 at 4:06 PM
From Andy Milio^I say no. I may allow a simulator ride in place of the water thrill ride challenge. But please keep your ideas as SHOWS
Posted February 2, 2011 at 4:37 PM
From Tim WComing soon to Sunset Boulevard, near Rock 'n' Roller Coaster....Concerts! 3D. This will lead into the eventual expansion of the area into a land called Music Row.
Posted February 2, 2011 at 5:42 PM
From Tim WConcerts! 3D
Posted February 3, 2011 at 11:48 AM
This new one of a kind experience show will kick off the start of Music Row, the new land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the area of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. Concerts! 3D will be very similar in nature to Legends in Concert, except that you will be attending a 3D concert event of a bunch of different actual artists, instead of impersonators. Concerts! 3D will take some of the biggest artists of today, and project them on a huge IMAX screen inside of a building that resembles a concert hall. 3D effects will float around the artists, as a concert backdrop. The artists will occasionally hold their microphone out into the audience and do other things that would be made into 3D effects. Of course Disney will be contracting a number of artists to continually record and film new sequences for the films. There will be 3 different films shown twice throughout the day featuring a number of different artists. Each film will be about an hour to and hour and a half in length.
The first show will be called Rock Legends. Here you will see a diverse mix of artists from a number of different decades. You will see performers such as Aerosmith, U2, KISS, Green Day, Nickelback, Bruce Springsteen, and the Rolling Stones. In this show, the audience will hear more than one song per band. This show will most likely be kept in, but could possibly be rotated by a new show.
Aerosmith: I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing, Jaded, and Dream On
The second show offered will be Girl Power, featuring some of the strongest Women singers in the history of music such as Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Reba Mcentire, Kelly Clarkson, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Martina McBride, Beyonce, Alanis Morissette, and Shania Twain. This show will be all about female empowerment as these women sing some of their most famous hits!
Celine Dion- The Power of Love, Because You Loved Me, My Heart Will Go On, It's All Coming Back to Me Now, and of course, Beauty and the Beast.
Whitney Houston- I Will Always Love You, I Wanna Dance with Somebody, and I'm Every Woman
Reba Mcentire- Fancy, Somebody, Consider Me Gone, and duet with Kelly Clarkson, Because of You
Kelly Clarkson- My Life Would Suck Without You, Miss Independent, Since U Been Gone
Madonna- Like a Prayer, Vogue, Material Girl, and Hung Up
Mariah Carey- Hero, Always Be My Baby, and We Belong Together
Martina McBride- My Baby Loves Me, Wild Angels, and Anyway
Beyonce- Single Ladies, Irreplaceable, and Halo
Alanis Morissette- Hand in My Pocket, Ironic, and Thank U
Shania Twain- Man, I Feel Like a Woman, She’s Not Just a Pretty Face, From this Moment On, You’re Still the One
The third show offered will be Country Stars. In this show, you will witness stars like Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Reba Mcentire, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, and Sugarland. Each performer will sing one song from the current year. The performers will generally change from year to year based on the current hits. The following is an example of a 2010 show:
Finally, the last show will be Pop Madness. This will probably be the most popular show of the three and will feature songs from the most current artists that dominate the Billboard charts. In this show, you will see current artists such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Justin Beiber, Rihanna, Pink, Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, Ke$ha, Usher, The Black Eyed Peas, and Taio Cruz.. Of course this show would be ever changing as well to incorporate more current songs about every 6 months or so. And since it’s a video, there does not have to be constant refurbishment, just simply switch out the videos. Here is a list of songs that would be currently featured:
Katy Perry- Teenage Dream, Firework, and California Gurls
Concerts! 3D will bring you and your family close and up center to the artists that you love of today and yester year. Catch it at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2012.
From Andy Milio^Wow! That was very good.

The Incredibles: Ultimate Showdown 4D
The Incredibles: Ultimate Showdown is a 4D show that would be placed at Disney Hollywood Studios' Pixar Place or Tomorrowland at Magic Kingdom. The show would last 20-30 minutes with a 5-10 minute preshow.
When guests enter the building (which is designed like a laboratory), they notice they are in Edna Mode's laboratory from the movie. As they wind through the facility, they see some of the experiments from the movie (for example, the fire test on Jack Jack's suit). After winding through the facility, guests come to a large opening, where the preshow begins.
Using the same hologram technology as the Forbidden Journey at Islands of Adventure, a holographic Edna Mode appears to talk to the guests.
"Oh! Hello, darlings! I am Edna Mode, I create the suits for those Incredibles. Oh! Speaking of that, go this way.
Guests continue down the queue until they come to the theater, which holds around 300-400 guests at a time. Guests are told to put on their glasses and the show begins.
The Incredibles appear on the screen and begin to lecture guests about how a lucky guest can get super powers. Radiation is going to be used, and one lucky guest will win the superpowers (this is the reason for the glasses).
Suddenly, the seats begin to shake. Mr. Incredible yells "Don't worry; it must just be a slight tremor!" over the calamity.
Then a long, mechanical arm with 3 sharp "toes" blasts through the wall (on the screen) and shoots out towards the guests (3D effect). The Omnidroid crashes through the wall, and a Syndrome look alike flies through as well.
"I am the new Syndrome! I have inherited the Omnidroid, and now it is invincible! Good luck trying to stop us, puny heroes!"
After this is said, other villains crash through. The seats are still rumbling as Bomb Voyage, Futur10n, Organa, and Mezmerella (the last few are from the Incredibles comics).
Bomb Voyage begins throwing bombs around everywhere. Soon, the lab is on fire (the heat would be changed to match the scene). Dash begins running and grabbing the bombs before they explode. He tosses them back at Bomb Voyage, and the bombs explode in Voyage's hands (explosions are 3D effect).
The scene changes to Organa and Mrs. Incredible. Organa sends out clay golems to fight Elastigirl (Mrs. Incredible). Mrs. Incredible fights off the first few golems, before she uses her flexibility to shoot the golems back at Organa like a slingshot.
Violet and Futur10n fight as well. Violet uses her force field to block Futur10n's devolution bombs, and Violet even tosses a bomb at Organa (who hasn't yet been killed by Elastigirl). Mrs. Incredible avoids as the bomb hit Organa and she devolved into a monkey. Mrs. Incredible and Dash arrive at Futur10n and finish him off.
Mezmerella begins to try to hypnotize the guests into attacking the Incredibles (a 4D effect with smoke). Violet uses her invisibility to distract her while dash uses his rapid punches (from the movie) to finish her off.
Now all is left is the Omnidriod (who Mr. Incredible had been fighting the previous moments) and "Syndrome, Jr.", who cannot be hit as he is using the rocket boots previously used by Syndrome. Mr. Incredible finds one last devolution bomb left by Futur10n, and he arms it and throws it at the Omnidroid and Syndrome, Jr., who is nearby.
The Incredibles dive out of the way as the bomb explodes. This would be the finale, with smoke, fire, and the rumbling of the whole theater.
Once everything has cleared, the guests and the Incredibles find that the Omnidroid has been devolved to a calculator, and Syndrome, Jr. has been devolved. Edna arrives in the room and looks around at the carnage.
"Oh dear, oh dear! We do NOT need any more superheroes to cause more damage! These 5 can do it well enough by themselves!"
She storms off the screen, and the show ends. No guest gets superpowers.
Guests leave the theater and enter the gift shop, where they can buy plush dolls, DVDs, video games, T-shirts, etc.
From Tim WSounds cool, and Thanks Andy!

From Anthony MurphyEPIC Mickey (DHS- Animation Courtyard)
Posted February 4, 2011 at 10:58 AM
In this live action and 3D show, we will join Mickey in battling the Mad Scientist and the Evil Shadow Dot along with other live character such as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (the first time he will be a meetable character).
The show starts innocent enough with Mickey Showing his guests a new way to make animated features. Of course, he cares for our safety so he asks us to put on "paint splatter" glasses. He demonstrates how to create with this new brush by creating a live character who literally "jumps" off the screen.
From Tim WSounds well EPIC!
Posted February 4, 2011 at 12:07 PM
From Anthony MurphyThe EPICness is not completed yet!
Posted February 4, 2011 at 12:24 PM
It wont let me post due to swear words in my submission?!?!
I mean, I know we all want to see Mickey Mouse let loose with the curse words and make the first Disney attraction rated R, but this is not one of those attractions :)
From Tim WWow, I never knew that would happen. I guess its good though to keep the safe clean, however.
Posted February 4, 2011 at 3:06 PM
From Anthony MurphyHowever, all of a sudden, the "paper" rips and the Mad Scientist comes out of the screen! He tells Mickey that he is back and wants to take the guests back to Wasteland (which is an alternitive Disneyland) since it has no guests. The Mad Scientist brings out some of his machines that will grab the guests including ones with fans lighting and effects as if the 3D item is actually hitting parts of the theater. Through the hole in Wasteland, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Come out to help Mickey fight the Mad Scientist with his magic paintbrush. Defeated, the Mad Scientist has one more trick up his sleeve. He uses his pinchers to grab Mickey's Magic Paintbrush and creates the Shadow Blot (the black inky villan from the game).
Posted February 4, 2011 at 4:31 PM
From Anthony MurphyFrom the audience, Mickey and Oswald fight against the Blot as he destroys pieces of the theater. Oswald then jumps up and grabs the paintbrush back and he and Mickey (along with the audeince) says the magic words and sends a rainbow of color towards the screen throwing the Mad Scientist and the Blot (who is leaking water...er ink on the guests) back into the page. Oswald, being a responsible older brother of Mickey, volunteers to "watch them" and jumps back into the page

From James KoehlAnthony, the problem with the site blocking "vulgar language" is the same problem I had multiple times in WPA and TPA2. There were no vulgar words, so I sent that info to Robert. He said it was helpful information, but I had trouble posting just about every time I tried. Sometimes I would rewrite a sentence and it would let it go through, other times it still rejected it, while other times it would accept the entire post with no problem. The only consistency was the inconsistency. Good luck!

From Joseph CatlettTHE MUPPETS GO TO THE MOVIES IN
Posted February 5, 2011 at 6:33 PM
(Completely, Totally, Unnecessary & Eye-Crossing)
Coming to the sites of the former Muppetvision 3D attraction in Florida and California, will be a brand new 3D experience once again starring Jim Henson's Muppets.
The show building will be modeled after the current Henson studios in Hollywood which used to be owned by Charles Chaplin and whose red brick facade is relatively unchanged after 80 years.
On the front of the building a large sign will announce the new show's title "THE MUPPETS GO TO THE MOVIES" with "In Completely, Totally, Unnecessary & Eye-Crossing 3-D!" painted hastily with wide brush strokes. This obviously snarky after-the-fact, add on to the name is attributed to Rizzo the Rat who sits on scaffolding, red paint brush in hand.
After entering the building, you are now in the pre-show room designed to look like a lobby-reception waiting area for some very important Hollywood Studio Boss. On the walls are framed movie posters for coming attractions like "Piggy Poppins", "An American Gonzo in London", "The Good, the Bad and the Furry", "Pi-Rats of the Caribbean", "Franken-Beaker" "Gone with the Swine", "Harry Monster and the Search for a Plot", "Pigs in Space, the Next De-Generation", "All the President's (Sam) Eagle's", "The Rocky Horror Piggy Show"," Gonzo-07 in For Camilla's Eyes Only", "Honey, I ATE the Kids" and "Terms of Kermit's Endearment" amongst many others.
Now, unlike most theme park 3D shows that have a shelf life realistically of 7 to 10 years at best. This show is ever changing. No one will see the same show twice, as sequences, thanks to digital 3D, will be random. 15 different MUPPET spoof trailers will be initially filmed with 6 per show actually used.With new portions filmed and added to the show over time, thus extending the life of the show exponentially. Only two sections will remain constant as it will be used to end the show's signature in-theater effect.
As seen with Bill O'Reilly's cameo in the preshow, this experience will take inspiration from the Muppet Show and theatrical release's use of Celebrity guest stars.
Once everyone has a seat, the curtains in front of the screen opens. In private boxes to the left and right of the screen will be in one, Kermit and Sam the Eagle (audio animatronics) who will introduce each trailer and comment on them along with Statler and Waldorf in the opposite box. The comments will have a Mystery Science Theater vibe to it, commenting on the action on screen as it happens into your ear using the binaural sound technology.
Some examples of the trailers playing will be:
"THE GOOD, THE BAD and THE FURRY"
"GONZO-07 in FOR CAMILLA's EYES ONLY"
"HARRY MONSTER and the SEARCH FOR a PLOT"
These are just a few of the trailers that can be shown.
The final trailer is the second of the constant segments, and is entitled:
Animal's rampage has ripped right into the next trailer:
Everyone leaves the theatre, returning their 3D glasses into the receptacles as the theme from the Muppet Show plays.
Now, regarding the use of these famous films. Yes, Disney does NOT own the rights to most of these films which inspired the Muppet version spoofs. They do NOT have to. The United States allows through Satire Laws the use of copyrighted material owned by others. As long as the versions showed are obviously satire (as in the cases of Mel Brooks' films, Mad Magazine and Weird Al Yankovich) and not a cheap rip off intended to confuse the audience into thinking that they are one and the same.
Hope you all enjoyed.
From Ryan waddingtonive only just come across these Threads, some of the ideas are great. im just wandering if anyone can take part?
Posted February 6, 2011 at 2:59 AM
From Tim W^I'm blown away. I think this would be a great replacement!!!! I never, ever thought that there would be any feasable replacement whatsoever for Muppets 3D, but this proves that there can be. I honestly believe that this is some of the best work done so far in this season, and could possibly be above some of the best ideas in both TPI 1, 2, and WPA that I hosted.
Posted February 6, 2011 at 3:50 PM
Speaking of TPA, but not wanting to distract people from the current competition, I would like to just mention that I am planning on resuming the game with a 4th competition (possibly an international version or with another theme) at the begining of June 2011. It should give people a nice break to rejuvinate their minds after this competition, and I would love some of the fellow participants in this game, as well as some of the old contestants to rejoin.
From Andy MilioJoseph, that was flat out amazing.
Posted February 6, 2011 at 11:07 AM
Ryan, you may play if you want. This challenge ends on the 8th so you may want to wait until the next challenge starts. But a new member would be great!
From James KoehlJoseph, when does the line start forming for this show? Excellent work! I could see the entire show from your description. You really threw down the gauntlet with this one!

From Randall PeekThe Enchanted Tiki Room
Posted February 8, 2011 at 3:11 AM
It has the same name as the classic attraction, and it uses a building built along the lines of the previous occupant, but there are now major differences and upgrades to the original AA show.
I was never a fan of the 'Under New Management' overlay. It seemed crass and vulgar compared to the quaint banter of the original show. True, the original was getting awfully long in the tooth, but it was a classic and still a good way to spend a half hour on a hot day. Is that the best we can expect from Disney, though? I think not.
I saw the recent fire in this attraction as a serendipitous chance for Disney to reinvigorate the show, and bring it up to current standards both in storytelling and technology.
A scene-by-scene breakdown of the show I envision is, by necesseity, impossible, as you will soon see. The format is considerably more free-form than what was there before. How is this possible? Through the use of digital technology and the Living Character Initiative.
The show takes place in a Polynesian ceremonial hut, as before. The building is essentially in the shape of a large cross, with four seating areas surrounding a central rotunda. Visually there is little to distinguish the interior of the new showplace from that of its predecessor. The tikis are in place, the perches are occupied by seemingly inanimate birds.
From Randall Peekpart two posted below, but the formatting got weird when I pasted it in, and I can't correct it without it timing out or something. My apologies for the difficulty in reading it.
Posted February 8, 2011 at 3:21 AM
From Randall PeekWhen the show begins, however, much has changed. Our host is still Jose, but he is no longer restricted to a set script. He is operated from off-stage by a puppeteer, much in the same way that waldos are used for Crush over at Turtle Talk with Crush in Epcot. He is able to interact more directly with guests, joking with them directly. Perhaps even one of the secondary host birds is 'live' as well.
Posted February 8, 2011 at 3:22 AM
The shows vary throughout the day. While the format remains fairly constant, with Jose
providing improvised intro's for the various numbers, the numbers themselves are drawn
from a large library of pre-programmed numbers. Some are true Polynesian classics, as
were featured to some degree in the original show, while others are Polynesianized
versions of classic music and Disney classics alike. Jose may even poll the audience as
to what they want to hear next. The AA figures would be accompanied by lush music coming
from all sides.
The ends of the four arms of the room have bamboo panels covering the prjection screens
that will now figure prominently in the show. During many numbers, these screens will be
rolled back and 3-d content will be projected from a central location, I believe that
either the fountain or the drop-down cockatoo carousel could serve as the projection
site. Because of the four-way seating, all guests will be facing one of these screens,
while there is also a screen directly behind them.
Due to the combination of improvisation and set-pieces within the show, each performance
will be different while retaining the charm of the original show. I think that 4-d
effects could easily be incorporated into the show, including the scent of orchids, the
fresh sea breeze, and even the smell of lava from the volcano that sometimes erupts in
Oh, I didn't tell you about that? As with the original show, each performance ends with
one of a number of rousing numbers that gets a little out of control, angering the local
gods. Whichever god is particularly angry will end the show with their signature
disaster, whether typhoon, volcano, or tropical storm.
I hope this pays suitable homage to a true Disney classic.
From Andy MilioDamond has asked for another day to finish his, so the due date is now February 9th. We still need confirmation from Eric
Posted February 8, 2011 at 5:07 AM

Posted February 8, 2011 at 3:02 PM
From Eric SThe title of my show is Zero to Hero: Phil's Hero Training. This takes in prospective heroes and lets them be taught by the gods how to be a hero. I would put the show in Fantasyland, but it could also be put in a potential Greek pavilion in Epcot.
Posted February 9, 2011 at 4:05 PM
In the queue, there are pictures of the Greek gods on the walls. The "heroes" will be taken into a gleaming white room where Hermes will tell them that Phil is waiting for all of the gods to get ready before they can be let into the arena. However, mere mortals can't look directly at the gods, so they will need to put on protective goggles before they can take the class.
Guests are then let into the theatre. The arena is set up like the Colosseum, with stadium seating on gleaming marble benches. As the guests are sitting, Hermes is making jokes and urging everyone to sit down quickly, because "you don't want to make Phil angry."
Phil comes onto the screen: "It's about time you lot sat down. My name's Philoctetes, but you can call me Phil, not that it'll matter because most of you won't make it past day one. Okay now let's get started. Most of you probably know me as Hercules's trainer. Ever since he hit the big time, I've been looking for the next big hero. This group is not looking promising, but Herc managed to convince a few of the gods to come here and help you get a jumpstart. Hermes here is our master of ceremonies. Hermes, get it started."
Certain gods start to do demonstrations of their powers. Zeus throws lightning bolts around and challenges Poseidon to a duel. The lights flicker, water sprays the audience, and eventually Zeus wins. Hermes takes over for a bit and flies around the audience creating a lot of wind in the auditorium. Artemis comes out and does a quick hunting demonstration. She points her arrows into the audience and does both a rapid fire and accuracy demo. There would be vases located around the auditorium that she breaks with her arrows.
Right as Phil is about to close the show, the seats begin to shake. Phil asks Hermes what the problem is, but Hermes can't figure it out. Hades bursts through the floor: "Hold on Philly. I think you forgot someone." Phil tells everyone not to listen and that they should just go ahead and leave. Hades says that he doesn't think that's such a good idea. He snaps his fingers and fire erupts right in front of the doors. Phil assures everyone that all of the gods are close-by so there's nothing to worry about. Hades says that the titans have them taken care of and shows them up on the screen. They're tied up with Pain and Panic standing guard.
Hades decides to do a little demonstration using Phil as his victim. He decides to tie Phil up to a board and practice throwing knives at him. He narrowly misses with the first two, but he decides he should close his eyes for the last one. As he throws it, Hercules and Pegasus fly in and knock the knife out of midair and into the audience. Hercules: "Drop the knives Hades, before you force me to knock you back down to where you came from." A fight ensues with Hades shooting fire all over the theater, with Hercules dodging and lunging at Hades with his sword. Finally, the gods come out. Hades: "How did you get free?" Zeus: "We distracted your crack team with some candy." The screen shows Pain and Panic tied up and eating chocolate. Zeus picks Hades up and throws him back down the hole that he broke in the stage. The audience roars and Hercules tells Phil to begin training anyone who wants due to their bravery in the face of extreme danger. Phil tells them to come back tomorrow and they can start their training.

Posted February 9, 2011 at 5:10 PM
From Mike GallagherI'm not enjoying this "tournament" much compared to previous ones. But my comment here has little to do with that.
Posted February 9, 2011 at 5:28 PM
In a real tournament, in what's commonly known as real life, there wouldn't be these second and third extensions. In a real tournament, sports, spelling bees, whatever, you miss it, you're out. Imagine a NCAA team makes the Sweet Sixteen, and the coach calls officials and says "We need another day of practice." Are they gonna say, "Sure, we'll give you another day but THAT'S IT! NO MORE!" Again, you miss it, you're out is the way it should be.
I have a very bad cold this week and have missed work most of three days. I was scheduled to take the JEOPARDY on-line test last night, but fell asleep doped up on Nyquil. So who do I see for my second chance? Correct. I don't get one.
From Andy MilioI guess you're right. But keep in mind; if Damond drops out, we will have 3 straight drop-outs and 3 straight weeks WITHOUT ELIMINATION. Call me crazy, but I don't wanna go ANOTHER week without [real] elimination.
Posted February 9, 2011 at 5:38 PM
From Tim WI know it is tough not wanting dropout eliminations. It is something I dealt with every season. However, in this game, I am seeing absolutely no excuse to post on time. It has now been 11 days. The ideas should not be taking this long to finish. I think you have been handling this quite well Andy, just hang in there. I wish I could say it gets easier, but the dropout rate increased immensely each season of TPA. Bottom line is though, DON'T cause the person extra stress if it will take you much longer than given and DON'T dropout because it is extremely disrespectful to the other conetstants and the MC. And that goes for Andy's current game, and my own competition.

This ride will either go in Hollywood Studios (maybe replace beauty and the beast), or in adventure land in Magic Kingdom. The ride will be around 10min long.
Intro: You and your family are the first ever to go to Camp Half blood, and what luck, they are going on a field trip to visit their parents. Aka, the gods. Since the camp counselor has to go with the students, eh has decided to take you along with them!
Queue: guest will first enter through an area that looks like a huge portal. Beside the portal is a fairly large tree that has the golden fleece strapped to it and a animatronic dragon sitting under the tree (smoke will blow out of its nose every once in a while). When guest go through the “portal”, they will end up in a lush green area with camp buildings painted in the distance, armor laying around, mystical animatronic creatures greeting guest (some will also be interactive), and campers (cast members) monitoring guest. Guest will wait in a large room (similar to the one in phillharmagic) where they will wait until instructed to move into the final screen room. The Doors leading to the main movie room are shaped like school bus doors.
Camper: Everyone please may I have your attention! Apollo is about to arrive in his magic school bus chariot to take you off to the gods! Please make sure you have your personal belongings! Remember, the gods are angered very easily so please no flash or film photography, food or drinks, and please turn off your singular devices! Oh look! Right on time, Apollo is here. Now would you please direct your attention to the opening doors and watch your step as you enter the bus. Have a nice trip everyone!
From damond harrissorry again it took so long to finish!

Tim- You had a very good idea. this is probably your best so far. I liked how your show featured different artists and different genres each day. However, I think this would be suited better as a live show, although that would be tough to pull off. A great idea.
Anthony- Wow. That was very good! I'm liking the use of Epic Mickey! This was much improved over your others as well. My favorite of the week.
Joseph- Very good! I liked the idea of the Muppets spoofing popular movies. However, I just can't picture a show that just consists of spoofed trailers. I love me some trailers, but I prefer the movie. One of my favorites, runner-up for favorite
Randall- I like the update of the enchanted Tiki Room. I liked the creative use of having Jose answer guests and such, and I enjoyed the songs and 4D effects. Great work
Eric- Good! I liked the use of Hercules, which has gotten a lot of attention in this game. I liked the inclusion of a Zeus and Poseidon battle. I also liked the inclusion of Hades. One of my favorites.
Damond- Iknow you had trouble posting, but you still did well. Percy Jackson is one of my favorite book series, so I enjoyed this one. I liked the idea of having guests sit in a "bus" while experiencing 3D effects. Good job.
From Josh MorgraHi I was wondering if I could start doing the chalenges starting with the next one. I just found this today and wondered if I could start?

From Andy Milio^Sure, why not! challenge 4 is up! nut now I have to add another challenge...
Posted February 13, 2011 at 4:22 PM
From Josh MorgraWhen will the 4th challenge be posted and will it still be a roller coster?!?

From Joseph CatlettAndy. Will any new posters to this tournament be just posting just for fun or actually in contention for the title? I ask this because it would seem to be a little unfair to Tim who got the boot this week only to have new competitors just step in who didn't compete previously. Obviously you make the rules here, so it is your call, but it does seem a bit unfair to Tim.
Posted February 13, 2011 at 6:10 PM
From James KoehlI agree with Joseph. If someone wants to post an idea for fun, then that's fine, but if they want to compete then they should wait until the next competition and start with everyone else. I doubt that this is going to be the last such competition in here.
Posted February 13, 2011 at 7:06 PM
From Josh MorgraYa I thought about that to, but two people have drop out of the compatition so why can't we take their place in the compation. Also what do we get if we win?
Posted February 13, 2011 at 7:22 PM
From Andy MilioI agree with Joseph. I think Josh can post for fun, but I do think it's unfair for him to join after Tim was eliminated
