  • Third Theme Park Theme: Mythology

    What do you think? Would a Mythology theme work for a Disney park?

    I think so...
    Here's some ideas...
    Have one land themed to Egyptian mythology, one land Greek mythology, One land Norse mythology, etc. A lot of original ride ideas could be made for this and the park could out-do DisneySeas. A Hercules area could be put into the Greek land. Some sort of rides themed to Viking gods could be put into the Norse area. The e-ticket in the Egypt land could be a giant Pyramid with a rollercoaster/Indiana Jones type ride inside. Anybody else have ideas?

    I believe that Disney today would be the best to recreate the look and feel of the environments, Universal doesnt have all the touch yet. But as to the rides, I think that would require serious time and energy, only the WDI of fifteen years ago was capable of that. I can imagine some serious Chinese Myths played out in a ride with stellar effect, but I can't see Disney (America) assembling the right talent and money.

    But Mythology is a start. Could this park have a "Rail Road"? That kind of element seems to add unity to a park. It also justifies the seperation between park and real world.

      I love the idea... in fact, I posted this before I saw your thread here:

      something along the lines of mythology would be pretty cool if you ask me.

        Really? Have you seen Expedition: EVEREST? WDI is still capable if they get appropriate funding (and $100,000,000 for a roller coaster is appropriate).

          Quite agree... I mean, even though it's Tokyo, DisneySea was built by the Imagineers.

          WDI has always been quite capable of doing everything. It's just that budgets and third-party meddling into their affairs are what keeps them from doing truly spectacular stuff.

          WDI knows how to make good show still. It's the accountants that won't let them do it completely. That's exactly what's gone wrong with a LOT of the long-standing aspects of the company lately.

          With a new guy in charge now, though -- well, let's see if he's willing to spend all that's necessary, even if overbudget, to keep people coming back.

            also Corporate sponsers can detract from the ride. Lets use 'Dinousaur' as an example. Great ride, but would be better without those BLARING Mcdonalds promotions.

              Attraction sponsors never bothered me too much -- the rides don't force the sponsor down your throat (even Carousel of Progress didn't force GE on you too much). As long as I don't see the Tiki birds in a ton of Dole clothing and signing up for a wireless service isn't a requirement for riding Spaceship Earth, I'm fine with sponsors.

              Anything that'll help bring a bit more budget is fine with me.

                I love the idea. I've studies (never "in depth") some mythology. It could be a great park.

                However.... In the US, it wouldn't work. Too many people screaming, "It's not Christian! You are teaching the kids to be Pagans! Anybody going to this park will go to hell!" ect ect ect

                I know some people make that claim now, but I think more would if "Paganland" opened.

                    Epcot did fine for a looong time without having rides and attractions based on Disney films...

                    But mythology goes with more than just the usual gods and goddesses that we usually think of. Chronicles of Narnia would be a perfect fit -- and a good way to calm those worrying about "Paganland."

                    As for Disney, we have Hercules and Fantasia to get a lot of material from -- not only with Pastoral Symphony, but also Night on Bald Mountain (remember -- Chernabog *is* the slavic god of evil).

                    Everything else, well -- look on the bright side, how will they possibly come up with a way to fit a Pixar film into that kind of park?

                      I don't think the pagan thing would be a problem here...I wouldn't suggest it as park #2 for Hong Kong...but I think with it all being history and myths (not religions) the big issue would be the historians saying that on such a large scale Disney couldn't help but screw up the history (like Disney's America).

                        Eff Mythology... My idea is to build a Theme Park in cooperation with George Lucas & Co. ... Thats right, I want to see a Star Wars Themed Park! Different lands themed to different planets. You know it would be tight.

                          How about having a successful second theme park first?

                              I was just thinking the exact same thing.

                              Although there are so many cool things that could be done - Mythology World - this could be an awesome park.
