  • Ride concepts from a former WDI.

    Former Walt Disney Imagineer Christopher Merritt, has come up with some great ideas for various rides that unfortunatly never left the drawing board. When you have a chance, check out his website at and see some of stuff such as the Critter Country 500, Discovery Bay, and the Nightmare Before Christmas dark ride.
    Growing older is manditory
    Growing up is however, optional

    I posted these concepts by Christopher Merritt back in May of last year in this now-locked thread: Unrealized Imagineering: Concepts that never saw the light of day.

    Merritt has some great ideas and beautiful concept sketches. Too bad none of them ever came to fruition.

      I think that his ideas has merrit too. I think though that there could be greater development. I think that a smaller kids ride that featured the bears in some kind of road race could have been a great ADDITION to Critter Country. I would have like it to be built around the present playhouse location. Elevated tracks could have given some motion and activity.

      Discovery Island is a great concept, but as Disney found out with Pirates, the public really wants a Tom Sawyer concept. But I really think that a Discovery "Update" to Tom's Island would have drawn a new generation. I would have perfered a blend of Tom and Discovery.

      The walk for Big Thunder could have been a great smaller ride for younger kids. Instead of just walking by, put a small track for some action. That could have been put in close to Big Thunder.

        Discovery Bay and Big Thunder Mountain walkway animals would have breathed some desperately needed life into Frontierland. Critter Country 500 sounds lame. His other stuff looks cool.
