    started a topic [Idea] Crush's Coaster to EPCOT?

    Crush's Coaster to EPCOT?

    EPCOT has The Seas with Nemo and Friends pavilion, but the pavilion does not have an actual ride, as the omnimover does not count. A good/great pavilion has one restaurant (check), one show (check), one dark/boat ride (check), and one D/E-Ticket ride (uh...).
    As you can see below, there is a ton of space for an attraction between the pavilion and the parking lot. This area north of the pavilion could have an attraction connected to the main building by an indoor/outdoor path that doubles as a queue (like Soarin', although it would be a lot smaller).

    The land is picture above, with the parking lot in the top left corner and the pavilion the grey building in the bottom right corner.

    Crush's Coaster is a very popular attraction at WDS and is one of the upsides of the park. A cloned version of the attraction can easily fit in that space (according to Google Earth measurements) and complete The Seas with Nemo and Friends pavilion as well as give EPCOT another attraction, which it could use.

    What do you think of the idea?

    I would definitely say the Land is the best pavilion at EPCOT and a pretty good pavilion. It has something for everyone. I easily spend a good amount of time there with Soarin' and Living with the Land.

    It does count as a ride, but the post said that a pavilion needs one slow/dark/boat ride, one D/E-Ticket, one show, and one restaurant. The omnimover counts as a slow/dark/boat ride.

    Ikr!? Finding Nemo should stick to the pavilion, although the show at DAK is fine.

    I just thought of a better solution to the capacity issue, since moving the equipment is not likely. They can make the shell cars 2 rows of two on each side, which would double the capacity without a second track.

    well keep in mind they would be in show buildings with soundproofing just like rockin rollercoaster so thats not really an issue and tunnelling under the aquarium was never suggested but the access road going underground so you could access the attraction was. in my method for implementing this idea I would probably have access to the ride outside of the pavilion attached to the far left side where the exit is and then have a tunnel/hallway similar to that of soarin that takes you to the actual show building and up and over the access road.

    It's one thing to walk passively by on ongoing show like in the Great Movie Ride. Another in Turtle Talk where there is a audience participation. If you had the guest go into a show room and from there to a loading area queue, the show either has to be quick, or you wait twice once for the show another for a ride. That would slow capacity on slow days.

    I agree and the bigger problem we have is a pavilion devoted to a franchise. Another attraction would ideally diversify the offerings.
    there's two ways this could work . the first model is dumbo where you get a buzzer and enter the theatre to see turtle talk until you get to go on the ride. the second model would be more like space mountain where you could see crush through a series of windows as you walk by or one continuous tube like a real aquarium.

    exactly! More then anything I would have just preferred to see the return of a more futuristic sea base alpha.

    The red outline is an area that can fit Crush's Coaster at WDS with plenty of room to space cause it is not a perfect rectangle and these measurements are the longest lengths and widths. You can see that another coaster can fit directly to the left, making them side by side, to double the capacity. The equipment that is currently in that area can be moved a little west to that open field. If the road can't go underground, then it can enter from the bus drop off as you can see in the top right corner and go directly to the aquarium.
    again though, that rectangle directly infringes on the entrances to the back of the aquarium and access road, this cannot happen. walking animals through an extra football field of space essentially is unsafe and having to access the aquarium through not only public areas but through an operating attraction area is more of the same. secondly adding an additional building right beside it would completely cut off access to the park from the bus stations. theoretically a path could be made but it would be difficult to get it in and would certainly create a bottleneck at prime hours. finally no lol you cant just move the salinization plant. if thats not running the fish die, plain and simple.

Crush's Coaster is such a fun ride. It would definitely need at least two tracks to give them sufficient capacity (probably more), but my understanding is that it is basically an off-the-shelf ride with a theming overlay, so it would probably be at the cheaper end of the spectrum for E ticket rides.

    Adding crush or similar smaller rides to the future world pavilions is a great idea. It makes what could be seen as a dull part of the park for some (but not us fans :-) ) more fun and means that the main attractions could still be old school edutainment
