    This could be highly cool.

    Maybe highly barfy, but also cool.

        This sounds really ambitious, and also really awesome. It is, almost quite literally, the ride system for Forbidden Journey, but turned upside-down, which will turn out to make a bigger difference than I might have realized were someone to float the idea to me previously. I imagine (or at least, I hope) that there will be some mechanism to keep the barfiness at bay. Nay-sayers will be hard-pressed to say that WDI has lost their passion or ambition on this one.

          I'd love to see it, but I don't know how they'd do it if it weren't a coaster. Maybe something like the swings on a track?

            This looks awesome. I'm not even worried about the nausea, just because the possibilities this ride offers are too numerous to pass up. I wonder if this will be an E-ticket ride that you go on for thrills, or a ride that's sort of like the Marvel and Spiderman version of Peter Pan's Flight for the 21st century. The intense swinging motion makes me think "thrilling E-ticket", but I don't want to speculate since even Peter Pan's Flight has a couple small drops. If this moves forward as a thrill ride, I could see it occupying quite a bit of space (perhaps the Hollywoodland Backlot) while blending in with the cityscape facade of Hollywood Blvd. If it's a more tame dark ride, then perhaps this would take the place of the Animation/Disney Junior buildings, which could again be re-skinned for a better cityscape facade. The former allows for plenty of space with the upcoming Eastern gateway project, while the latter would jibe with the idea of Marvel land being confined to the space south of Hollywood Blvd (therefore leaving Hollywoodland/Backlot open for future expansion).

            Either way, I'm excited for what's in store.

              None of these sites actually list any filing number or patent number...

                I wouldn't be surprised if this is put in place of Monster's inc and that entire area

                  Didn’t one of the MiceAge updates say that they were planning a Spider-Man dark ride in bugs land? So does that mean bugs land will close late this year/early next for the construction of this?

                    It looks interesting - though I wish they'd put in some new rides that don't appear so nauseating. The newer ride technologies (HP Forbidden Journey/Avatar/New SW attractions) is tough on a lot of us motion sickness prone folks. I'm making assumptions, of course, since I haven't rode rides that don't exist yet, but I get sick on Star Tours, so my hopes aren't high.

                        The screens can be killer. I told my wife not to go on Avatar because I know it would have ruined the rest of her day.

                        I had a great time though. =P

                          If you look at all the illustrations in the article, it looks like the show building would be quite large. It also looks like practical sets would make up much of the attraction. At least your not just sitting in a simulator in front of a screen! Good things to look forward to...

                            I don't want to be that *that guy* but doesn't this still technically count as a rumor? That said I'd love to see a cool ride system that brings you through amazing practical sets so i'm fine with this!

                              If they don't stick this thing in front of a bunch of screens, it might not be too barfy (for me, at least). I guess it depends upon how much swinging and how fast the swinging is. Maybe they will do like LegoLand does with their Kuka Arm ride and let you choose your intensity level. That would be cool. Either way, my husband and daughter would like this for sure. I hope this is more than just rumor!

                                  This could definitely be a 'barfy' ride. I agree with a PP who posted that it would be nice if the newer technologies weren't so 'motion intense'. I did Forbidden Journey for the second time last week, and it will be my last. Odd how the first ride (last December) didn't bother me a jot, but this time things were fine at first, but I barely made it through the last 10 seconds.

                                    You can be certain this will be a thrill ride targeted at the male youth demographic. As Bob and Jay said when they announced the Marvel acquisition, the purpose of the purchase was to enable Disney to own the boy demographic in the same manner that their Princess brands own girls.
                                    "With the acquisition of Marvel and now of Lucasfilm,
                                    Disney may have finally found the grail. You don't need
                                    imagination or art. All you need is a brand."

                                        I love thrill rides, and I've never experienced any type of motion sickness on a ride, so I'm excited for this (I'm not a big Marvel/Spiderman fan, but I'm excited for the concept.) I can understand how some might be apprehensive, however, especially if there are a ton of screens which I know some people find disorienting.
