    I rode it twice! Showed my friend a video of the ride once. Too much for one person to handle LOL although the day I first rode it I give props to the CM. He ushered me in to the ride as if I was a star, or I could be star mad props but that was way back when LOL. On to Monstropolis. How does it fit into Hollywood though?

    After seeing that video all I can say is good rindance to bad garage. They could put another shop there and it would have more class (and entertainment value) than SSL.

    To use a old, out dated saying, SSL was like bringing coal to New Castle. If I want to see SSL all I have to do is turn on the "TV guide channel" or "E!"

    No, it's only a problem if they choose to keep it a problem. USH, an actual, working studio, had as it main attraction a ride. HPB doesn't have room for a tram ride, of course, but they could have a Great Movie Ride. You could, I suppose, have the RocknRollercoaster, though I think that's not the best choice. You can have Star Tours or something along that lines that is based on the concept of queueing up in a "working set" for the film and then being able to enter the movie through clever special effects, etc... The theme is fine, it's the people in charge of executing it that cause the problem.

    Start the countdown!!
    I feel more intelligent already!

    As Al has numberous time reported - the only attraction to actually make you dumber (and more numb) just by riding it.

    The finest example of Presslerism before Winnie the Pooh!

    Apparently WWTBAM is designated as a "show based" attraction... Of course it is right next to a Film Based attraction? Makes no sense to me when you have Aladdin and Playhouse Disney so close by too...
    Yeah, it seems a little silly that DCA would have a zoning board. I mean, really, they have to know how often shows need to be replaced. Anyone remember Tomorrowland?

    Looking at WDW... Besides Philharmagic, most of their shows are in trouble. MGM seems to have realized it needs a few E tickets to balance out all the shows it has. AK only has the one show that I know of. And Epcot... well, everyone always says how badly Epcot does, and it's almost entirely shows and C or D tickets.

    I just don't see needing more than one show per land.

    Years of Disneyland. But I haven't read anything about TDA's future plans.
    This would be pretty hard to do, since the Millionaire building is pretty much gutted right now, and little of the show remains. As for the future, the building will house another show (it will not be removed), but the theme has yet to be determined.

    I didn't know that departments had "dibs" on DCA buildings - Sounds like DCA needs to get redistricted.... Back to parking.... :botox:

    Oh, one more thing, since Creative Entertainment spent most of its budget on Parade of Dreams, Remember, and Block Party... I don't expect to see something go there for a while...

    He's very good at substantiating his information with sources and documentation, a lot better than many of the "Armchair Walts" who profess to know "What Walt Would Have Done" without having even met the man. Agree with him or not, he sure knows how to do his research.

I loved riding SSL because it was so tacky. :lol:
    Gotta say, a paparazzi chase doesn't sound a whole lot less tacky. Part of why I hated SSL was the paparazzi theme. Making it faster wouldn't change that. It's still making light of one of the most unattractive elements of "the biz." Yeah, paparazzi fits the theme of Hollywood Backlot, but rampant racism/xenophobia would fit the theme of Main Street, you don't exactly see "NINA" signs hanging in the shop windows.

    What I'd LIKE to see go in there instead is a dark ride using the trackless technology from Tokyo's Pooh, themed as if you were filming a hollywood stunt driving chase scene. Send off 2 cars at once (one the chaser, one the chase-ee), go through various street scenes, and end with a spectacular "out of control crash" in an open room, taking full advantage of the trackless system as your car spins out of control knocking set pieces over. Now THAT would be interesting, original, and fit the theme of the land perfectly. So, of course, it'll never happen.
