I can tell that the upcoming Lego Movie will be HUGE (merchandise is already flying off the shelves, there are already many positive reviews, etc.)! If this film is successful enough to warrant a sequel (which it most likely will), Legoland theme parks should capitalize on the upcoming success by developing a dark ride based on the movie.
In Legoland Florida, the ride would best fit in the place of the Flying School coaster. I can't speak for other Legoland parks, but the ride can fit into those parks, too.
It would be a slightly compact, multi-level version of the popular dark ride/simulator hybrids from Oceaneering (Spider-Man, DarKastle, etc.), complete with animatronics (character voices would be provided by their original voice actors), practical effects, 3D imagery (with distortion synched to the vehicle's movements) and interactivity, all taken to the Universal/Disney level of weaving technology with imaginative storytelling.
Sure, the licensed characters would have to be omitted from this ride (as Six Flags owns the US theme park rights to DC Comics), but a Lego Movie-based dark ride would easily become a guest favorite among many.Tweet
