  • Here's an idea: Fit the Autopia's dash with a "radio"

    "Radio" is in quotes because, of course, it would be out-of-place to play the radio stations of today in the future!

    No, instead, how about if Autopia drivers could tune into the "radio stations of the future?" By turning the dial to a few different notches on the dash, you could listen to futuristic songs (new ones along with favorites from the past, like the Dick Dale version of Space, could be possible here), announcements broadcast from the various places in Tomorrowland (some from Star Tours, some from Space Mountain, heck, maybe some from the Subs, Push, or Innoventions!), and maybe even a "punny" Chevron commercial here and there, or a warning about the "dangerous drivers" you saw on the LED screen. Or, if you prefer the ambient noise of the engine, you have the option to shut it off. And once the drive is over, the warning not to bump the driver in front of you could be played on the car's speakers instead of in that whole physical area.

    What do you think? On-ride sound is all the rage these days; should the Autopia hop on the band wagon? I bet it wouldn't be too hard to execute, since there is no necessity to sync the music with anything (as is the case with Screamin' and Space), other than starting it up at the beginning and powering it off when in the loading area. The biggest problem would probably be, are the engines too loud for the speakers to compete with? How likely would it be to have this feature fail due to the outside conditions, such as rain? And perhaps most importantly, would people care for such a feature?

    while i like the idea, allowing them to turn the dial means a distraction that could cause an accident. what if they just had a loop that played automatically without people getting distracted by looking down to turn a dial? but i totally love this idea! i always feel like this ride is way too quiet, especially now that i drive alone more often than not.

        I would much prefer that over a complete Cars makeover of the attraction. :thumbup:

              :lol: Yeah, its not like they are flying down the 91 doing 75 MPH! for the kids it would be good practice for when they get a real drivers licence and have to learn to drive, mess with their MP3 player, talk on the cell phone and (for girls) put on their makeup while driving.

                How about having the cars talk?

                I mean they talk in the queue, right?

                They could be your tour guide of Autopia.

                              If they installed the radios, you would get 30 seconds worth of music, followed by 3 minutes of Chevron ads
