  • [Fun] If you could go back in time and redesign an existing ride with modern technology...

    What would you do to it?
    Would it lose its magic?
    Would it be better?
    Which ride?

    Ex, making all the pirates in POTC Johnny depp-like.
    Which I wouldn't have chosen even if we had the technology back then, woul lose its antique charm IMO

    I want to hear your ideas!

      Bring the orignal Journy through Imagination to DL and upgrade Audio anamtronics. Throw a little Horizons in there and world of Motion to go around.

        This is definitely my pick. The premise of Adventures Thru Inner Space is just so darn cool.:thumbup: I think today's technology could really lend itself to the telling of its story and the creation of "inner space."

            It might be nice to have Autopia be electric instead of gas powered.

              Adventures thru Inner Space. I think it would still fit in TL well. If it was updated and had some cool, new effects it could be a really great ride. I also think Autopia should go electric. I really like that ride with my kids because driving is the future for them. It's fun to watch them be so excited to drive. I just really don't like pushing down on that peddle, it makes my leg hurt. And the car I drove this last trip would NOT do what I wanted it to so it was one jerky ride.

                Which ride?
                Mr. Toad's Wild Ride

                What would you do to it?
                Lose the plywood cutouts, update to animatronics and projection mapping technology.

                Would it lose its magic?
                Yes it would.

                Would it be better?
                Not at all.

                  It's a Small World so you can't see the ceiling with sky projections

                    Also have to say Adventure Thru Inner Space. ALSO would just like Circle-vision back, lol. (Psst, Innoventions building.)

                      Any and/or all of the dark rides in Fantasyland. While I love them as-is from a nostalgic perspective, they suffer in comparison to Monsters inc and Little Mermaid. I guess because space is an issue, that comparison isn't fair. But I do think those dark rides would be more enjoyable today with current technologies.

                        So far this is the best idea I've seen. I like it a lot, and probably wouldn't be too hard to achieve.

                            My thoughts exactly.

                              Peter Pan. I think boats with a little more movement and a ride with advanced, modern-day animatronics would be amazing.
