Change one letter in a ride/attraction and totally change its meaning

January 23, 2019, 7:58 AM

Let's play a game: take the name of an attraction, ride, show, etc at one of your favorite theme parks. Change *one* letter (or add or subtract ONE letter) to completely change the meaning of the ride (and MOST IMPORTANTLY explain your concept of the new ride).

I'll go first:

Kind Kong 360, Universal Studios (Kong has undergone sensitivity training, so now Kong walks alongside the tram offering virtual tissues and picking up dropped 3d glasses and cell phones for visitors)
