  • Mt Fuji Rumor is Back

    http://www.mouseextra.com/2008/04/03...-mill/#respond

    The Mt Fuji bobsled ride in Japan at WS is again being rumored. I am not a proponent of thrill rides in WS. They could the Rhine River deal at Germany or the gondola ride in Italy. I would love dark rides on a country's history, but Maelstrom is a thrilling as it it should get.

    what say you?

      I don't mind the Maelstrom. I would have preferred a scene or two more of Vikings for sure. Maybe a history scene of two as well. Its too short, but its the kind of attraction I like at WS cultural and fun. Except for that horrible film

        I'm growing tired of the roller coaster on a mountain rides. I think Fuji may have once been a great addition to the parks, but we already have BTMR and Everest, we don't need another ride a coaster through a mountain. I'd like to see a big E ticket or two good C tickets in World Showcase, I just don't think this is the right thing.

              you're probably right Denise. One of the great things about WS right now is how relaxing it is. I can imagine that hearing people scream on Mt. Fuji and the coaster roar by could detract from that feeling of peace and serenity that WS has. I wouldn't mind a mild river raft ride in Canada however but I think I'd much rather see that Germany river ride come to fruition.

                    I really like Maelsrom, I defiantly think more things like that would be great. I would hope, though, that they keep in line with the country and not too heavy on Characters. (Like Mexico's El Rio del Donald) I just think that WS attractions need to be about the culture and an E ticket may take away from the quiet enjoyment there...

                      I'm with you. WS is SOOO relaxing, it's a take it easy kinda place. I've come to LOVE that. Why ruin it?

                          I'm kinda of the attitude of no thrill rides--but something should be installed.

                          And isn't, forgive me if I'm wrong, Mt. Fuji of profound religious signifance in Shinto? Wouldn't it be an insult to have it presented in such a manner as a 'thrill ride' with bobsled on a mountain that doesn't even have a bobsled run?

                          I do think something with Godzilla would be a hoot, tho.

                                    If it wouldn't look so odd, I'd love to see an Alpine mountain rise up from the France Pavilion to hide that postmodern eyesore.

                                      I wouldn't mind a nice relaxing mountain ride! Thrills are fun but I don't think they should be doing that to World Showcase.

                                        youknow I wouldn't mind either way

                                        the world showcase could deffinatly do with one or two more actual rides in my book and since most Disney rides are pretty moderate for thrills I really wouldn't mind at all

                                        right now there seems to be kinda a slump in rides there and it feels like Maelstrom and Grand Fiesta have above average crowds mostly because they're the only real rides on the showcase which is kinda a shame as it seems like they could do a thing or two with the local culture or superstitions or folklore in each area or maybe even cover some sort of exciting historical events (rides as entertainment should be more action then pure edutainment in my book but I do enjoy the layers they add on to these things)

                                        Maelstrom has alot of interesting parts but it's overall too short and yeah I agree with those who say it should have more to do with the vikings or other interesting things that just seem skimmed over

                                        Grand Fiesta's origional incarnation was pretty meh in my book and the minor (well in some ways it's overwhelming but technologically speaking it's pretty minor) alternations to it really livened up the energy and is one case were I don't mind the more classic kinda characters and they don't feel too out of place (though I probably don't want them setting a bad example for other showcases to follow)


                                        Personally I think the World Showcase could go for two more REAL rides or maybe even divide it up into four C/D ticket darkrides or something, it could really push epcot into a two day park and would hopefully alleviate some of the blood clot in an artery situation that forms outside of Maelstrom and Grand Fiesta
