  • [Rumor] Maliboomer

    http://allears.net/dlr/tp/dca/mali_sign.jpg

    a CM told me that they were gonna keep the Maliboomer during DCA transformation because the way it was constructed in association with Screamin'. He said in order to remove the Maliboomer, that they would need to take apart a section of Screamin'.

    he DID say they were thinking of applying a new theme to Maliboomer tho.... to fit in with the DISNEY theme a little better

    i like the thought of maybe a "Gummi-Beary Juice Jumper" or something to do with Tigger.


    what would your suggestions be?

          They should just point the launch mechanism downward and blast it out of the park.

          I'm sure that they could dismantle it somehow without removing a section of Screamin' but I bet they would have to close the coaster anyway for safety reasons.

                i dont hate on the maliboomer as much as others, i think its a decent ride for the space it takes up, which is practically nothing.

                i think they just need to change the launch/drop mechanisms a little bit. maybe stay on top for another 5 seconds or so to look at the view. something like that. change the theme of course as well.

                  that'd be cool but i'd think Donald should have some kinda WATER ride.... maybe they should bring back the idea of doing a bumper boats kinda ride with donald....

                  i agree with this & to be 100... i ride the maliboomer atleast 2 times each time i visit.... i dont understand all the hate around it. especially when stuff like BURGER TIME is taking up valuable space.

                    well, I did love the Gummy Bear cartoons.
                    Not sure if it's Pier material
                    but then again, what in the park has kept a theme (minus the redwood area....Ok, and bugs land...which I don't care for)?

                      Re: Maliboomer

                      It could be torn out without needing to remove sections of Screamin (and yes Screamin would be closed). The issue is cost. Taking it down with a specialized crane that goes top down (think of it like a gardener taking out an old tree) is expensive. Likewise taking out a section of the track would also be expensive... so which method they would choose really boils down to cost.

                      At the same time Maliboomer is a launch tower. It's a modern attraction that really can't fit easily in a period pier fun zone. My thought would be either lighthouse or clock... probably clock... need to have a reason for having this massive tower.

                        Re: Maliboomer

                        a lighthouse would actually be really nice.......
                        or maybe a windmill.....

                        i'd personally still wish to have a Mailboomer type ride in the "new" theme... but :Shrug:

                          A windmill? Isn't it a bit tall and out of proportion? And why on a Pier?

                            Hhhmmm...I dont know about the Gummy Bear idea... I think it needs to stick with more Disney theme. I love this ride, we always manage to ride it every time we go!

                              But the Gummi Bears ARE Disney. How can it be a MORE Disney theme than Disney itself? :geek: From what you said, I can assume you meant either more well known or the classic Disney characters like Mickey, Donald, Goofy, etc.

                                I belive that it is being suggested that the fab 5 are being represented throughout the pier so it should be themed in keeping with that mindset.

                                  basically the same/exact suggestion (which I like then and still do) when a Maliboomer thread appeared a few weeks ago.

                                    If this report is true... then again Disney is doing backward step!

                                      I wouldn't mind if they took it out. I had a pretty bad experiance on it one time and I'm not gonna ride it anytime soon. I made a post about it in another thread so I'm not gonna recount it here. All I can say is I'd be glad to see it gone.

                                        Can someone explain something to me please? Who was the person who thought having TOT and Maliboomer in the same park, within a 5 minute walk of each other, would work? The elaborate theming of TOT makes Maliboomer look like a joke.

                                        Now if there was no TOT we might have slightly different opinions...

                                        Just my opinion!
