  • [Idea] Grizzly Peak Idea

    In New Orleans Square, there are a few references to Jean Laffite right??? Like the Pirates Load Area (Liffite's Landing), his anchor, and Laffite's Tavern on Tom Sawyer's Island.

    Anyway, I think that it would be cool to have a few John Muir references throughout Grizzly Peak. Maybe a sign that points to his "base" or something like that. I really have no idea what, but I though it would be cool to have him remembered.

    For those of you who don't know who John Muir is, he was a naturalist. Because of him, we have most of our state parks like Yosemite, Joshua Tree, and Muir Woods. Also, Muir Woods is just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. So if there were to be some htings remembering him in Grizzly Peak, it would make good thematic and geographical sense.

    Just and idea.

    I like it! Those are the fun little things people are likely to discover after having been to the park a few times.
    Great idea.

      I like it, but I think the first priority should be creating some animatronic wildlife...little memorable vignettes, you know. Heck, even a thrill ride in the wilderness like BTMRR would get a little old if there were no signs of life. When you tone down the thrill factor to produce something like Grizzly River Run, it's all the more important to have really exceptional scenery. IMO, the scenery is currently rather nice, but nothing more.

        Yes, animals would be a great addition to Grizzly Peak!!! But I also think that John Muir should be remembered in someway.

          I agree. A John Muir sign or camp (a la the Wells Expedition on the Matterhorn) would be great. I think some anamatronic wildlife would be an awesome addition too. Maybe a mine ride/ coster is in need too.

            I like the idea and I think most of us agree that GRR needs animals and preferably lose the modern rafting stuff too.

              They should have a wildfire in the ride similar to the burning log cabin.

                  one of the original ideas for "plussing" Grizzly Peak was to make the whole area set to turn of the century state parks and focus on Teddi Roosevelt and John Muir... ideas have been thrown back and forth to make Vignettes of animals and place them all around in some of the empty side areas... this would also include River Run (removing all extreme sports references)... it would basically be like Natures Wonderland

                  WDI has even expressed interest on putting Country bears in this area... the original idea of CB was for a Ski resort in Northern California .

                      yeah!!!!! animals and subtle references to famaous naturalist is a great idea maybe replace the random camp wreck with a scean with a bear family. and a few well placed dear or bears i mean its called grizzly peak who cares that the mountain looks like a bear maybe some bears catching salmon. i like the idea of adding small things even if you don't notice them it feels different cause they are there.

                        Yeah! Get AA's first. Good idea though. Maybe a cave can be named after him. Or they could put up a tent camp somewhere, callin it Muir Camp or something.

                          I would love to see some humorous bear scenes added, something sort of Marc Davis style. Maybe one trying to catch a Salmon, one sitting and spinning on a geyser and one spitting water at you. Also more mine stuff could be added too, this could add humor or drama as well to the ride and more to look at.
