Andrew, do you mean rebuild an attraction that has been demolished/dismantled/whatever, or an attraction that still stands but you think needs to be demolished and recreated new and improved?

I was thinking extinct I think existing ride would be considered an update.

Alien Encounter but it would be a Dark ride instead of in a theatre. Something along the lines of Dinosaur or Indy ride platforms but also have the in-car effects.

I would rebuild Mr. Toad ride Orlando version.

But instead of 2 different circuits, it would use trackless cars, with the cars (with guests) near bumping each other in the many scenarios.

Also I would use much better animatronics and would make the train tunnel part really scary and realistic, with advanced sounds and the car shaking when the train is near.

Jaws, but it would be tweaked around with to cost less to operate. It would still have all the old effects (and some new ones), but improved from before. A new story would help, too.

The San Francisco Earthquake at Cedar Point. What was a rather hokey dark ride in the '60s could be a terrifying dark coaster ride with high tech special effects.
