  • Could modern technology resurrect any long lost rides from Yesterland?

    I was just wondering what others thought about this...

    In a world where sequels often seem less risky then original ideas ( sad I know ) would modern technology be able to resurrect any of the long removed classic Disneyland attraction and make them both enjoyable to for older guests while still appealing to younger generations?

    Examples:

    ATIS could now be done using 3D glasses and an enclosed pod with a transparent screen as the windshield playing off of actual set pieces or Country Bear Jamboree could be done with AA combined with screens framed with curtains to mimic an actual stage etc.

    *Note - I am not a fan of screen based rides as you can always tell it is a screen but the reality is they are being more integrated with attractions whether we like it or not so does anyone have ideas on how it could be done successfully?

    Even if it's a blue sky pipe dream feel free to share.

    Definitely it could. PeopleMover, ATIS with all of the advances in medicine, MTM now that we have landed a rover on Mars, etc. can certainly be enhanced by technology if they were around today.

    What's interesting is that you suggested 3D glasses, but that's already becoming kind of a dated form of technology. If they can get ahead into 4D or something more immersive than just glasses, then they can really do something amazing. It's like the MSEP commercials they had this year with the girl going through the warehouse of retired attractions. Find a way to get into the world and not just a better way to look at it from the outside.

      Maybe the augmented reality glasses like they have at Six Flags could work.

        Evidently it can, though in some cases it doesn't always work out (Luigi's Flying Tires for example)

          I think that might actually the reverse of what I was getting at. It's interesting now that you bring it up ( old tech new theme ) how it did not work out. Maybe bringing back the saucers but using magnets or wheels underneath that rolled in the direction that the rider leaned giving the impression of flight could work.

              I think the glasses on even current rides like goofy's sky school would be a plus. Or bringing the people mover run on solar from Mickey and Friends.

                    I get a feeling it was before your time! No worries, sadly I did go on it quite a bit. It was fun for the time.

                      Really, any of the golden yesterland Tomorrowland attractions would fair well with a modern reboot. But the fan favorites are definitely ATIS and the Pringlemuncher.

                      The more likely ones however, at least in my opinion, might be an electric version of Autopia, since Honda themselves have states the current fixes are only "stage 1." And I get the feeling once SWL opens, they might try to go retro for the carousel showbuilding...Or tear it down.

                        This makes me wonder if they would ever bring the Autopia layout over and bridge it into the area of the COP building and free up the old area for the rumored FantasyLand expansion? It could start off where it currently is and wrap around up to a bridge that would lead into the COP building (or the area if they take it out) and then they could have a virtual night time area or at least part of the track with more interaction if they go electric going in and out of a building would be doable.

                          I didn't actually realize that flying tires was more or less the same system as flying saucers, I was under the impression that they improved the system when they made cars land but that the tires themselves weighed too much to be a practical solution. It would be kind of cool to see a magnetic version though I'm not sure how well that would work out (or how safe it would be for that matter, I'm no scientist but I keep thinking of how magnets will flip over to attract to each other). Wheels would probably be the best modern solution for that type of attraction.

                            I'd love to see a resurrection of Nature's Wonderland with the new rockwork techniques seen in Carsland and fully animatronic animals (the original iteration of Nature's Wonderland was created just prior to the introduction of AA's) in grand landscapes and such with new effects such as projection mapping and such that could beef up the already spectacular Rainbow Caverns. Just an example of the effects for a modernized version of the ride could be similar to the newer iterations of the Jungle Cruise and such, from the fact that Nature's Wonderland has been referred to as the Jungle Cruise of Frontierland.
