Ideas for rides based on T.V./Movies

Wednesday, April 21, 2004 2:18 PM
An interactive zombie ride where you can shoot the zombies would be cool, but it can’t have any of those wussie zombies. I want them Olympian zombies from Dawn of the Dead. We also need a Flight of the Navigator ride. I guess we could make a ride for the kids out of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. On second thought, screw that, we need more coasters.

Trading Spaces Indoor Coaster: Strap in and start out at a leisurely pace and travel through a living room... kinda boring looking like a normal living room. Turn a corner, begin climbing first lift. As you reach the top you hear Hilde cackling... you drop (75 ft or so?)... go through a loop and then a corkscrew and then slow as you see the living room again... this time there is hot pink furniture, no ceiling fan, the fireplace has been covered, and the room looks like a big tent. There are even circus clowns everyhwere. The home owners are in the room weeping.

As you leave the room and start climbing the second lift you hear Paige Davis yelling "Frank! Frank! We need you!". Second drop (100 ft), couplle bunny hills, another loop, another bunny hill and you pull into the station. You are in the middle of living room. It is a beautiful room by all accounts. As you exit to the left you see Frank and the homeowners sitting on the couch on the right side of the room drinking what looks like wine and laughing. As you leave you notice Frank has made little wooden figurines that are in coaster cars by the exit. The train pulls forward to the loading bay and it begins again. The ride also has the patented Trading Spaces music at appropriate times which you can hear through the speakers in each car.

Maybe if they built this there would be coaster shows on Discovery again :) *** Edited 4/21/2004 6:34:48 PM UTC by DragonRider***

News Media: The Ride

Colors would be as flashy as possible...Restraints would consist of six-point harnesses, disposable helmets, gloves, knee braces and steel-toed boots...Advertising would be that this ride could kill you and your children ...

And the actual ride would be a powered Dragon coaster.

Oh and the coaster will come to life and do it's best to cause enough headache to it's homepark that the park goes bankrupt and has to shut down forever.

Too cynical for you? Ok, how about MTV: The Ride - A top spin with an extended upside-down cycle time so your brain really is completely numbed, at which point you'll be convinced to like a certain kind music and that everything else in the world sucks, and on the way out you either have to get stoned and stop caring about anything in life or hook up with some diseased person at a bar which will be nationally televised...

Brett - whose entire TV-watching consists of sports, and Family Guy on DVD

Hmmm, I like my smart-ass answer in the 2002 thread more than my smart-ass answer from this thread...

i vote for the Evil Dead ride.

they could have Bruce Campbell doing the recorded auto-spiel...

"OK you primitive screwheads!! listen up!! keep your hands and arms inside the ride at all times. oh yeah, and Shop S-Mart!!"

and there could be little Ash-isms throughout the know, "this is my BOOMSTICK" and "Groovy" and "gimme some sugar baby"...

and of course, "Klaatuu verada nicoughcough"....

heheehhe love it.

Absolutely Fabulous: The Ride

Vehicles are modeled to be Jaguar Limos, with spill proof champagne flutes w/ straws for drinks along the way. Pinkie press-on nails are provided at the beginning of the que, along with small vials for an additional fee. The ride itself starts as a dark ride/shopping trip, with stops to exit at such stores like Harvey Nichols. Of course , these will change frequently according to what's in next season. There IS a strict guest list for this attraction!
After the shopping section of the AF:TR comes the roller coaster portion. This is a fast paced trip through clubland, lasting until dawn. An upcharge attraction next to the ride, named The Afterparty, opens for those not ready to stop riding.
Of course, AF:TR is brought to you by Christian LaCroix.

I'll regret this, but...

I think he's referencing your Eddie Van halen "crack"
Wednesday, April 21, 2004 5:20 PM
Exactly, just "crack"in a joke. How about a ride themed on Dave TV?

I knew I'd regret asking that ;)

Now I don't know *which* of those rides I prefer...Evil Dead was hysterical....perhaps once Mummy goes out of style, USF can re-theme, LOL...

I even thought of Bender or Fry (Phry?) for a PPP costume, LMAO...

Wednesday, April 21, 2004 7:44 PM
You thought of a Bender of Fry costume, but not Dr. Zoidberg? How can you not think of Dr. Zoidberg!? A whole themepark could be made out of him & his species alone! :)

...of course, a few of them would have to take place in a dumpster, or they'd be of 2nd hand quality & rusted away.

I've always wanted to see a ride based on 1979's Alien.

I think it could make a really good and scary ride expierience.

Wednesday, April 21, 2004 9:03 PM
There is the Alien from Alien in a MGM Studios ride that has scenes from lots of movies, but they made sure to not make it too scary. I bet they could make a great ride if they had that thing jump out super fast at random points with a loud noise.

not sure of a theme, maybe just travel around Quahog on a dark ride, hearing random jokes about race, religion, and all other sorts of American Taboo's.

I love that show.

You know its comming back to fox? Hopefully they will get rid of that annoying girl from That 70's Show's Voice.

I would love to see a Saved by the Bell ride, complete with bad acting, and great lessons and morals learned on every ride. Maybe we you could get fake ID's and go to the attick.

Nintendo licensed characters would be a great theme for a whole park or area of a park, imho.

Super Mario kart themed go-carts or turnpike cars. Donkey Kong Country mine ride. Metroid interactive dark ride. Starfox indoor launched coaster. Koopa-Troopa Paratrooper flat ride. Yoshi-Go-Round and various other Yoshi themed kiddie rides. Luigi's Haunted Mansion traditional darkride. Legend Of Zelda themed log flume. Wario's wooden coaster. Princess Toadstool's Castle funhouse. Bowsers Roto-Drop. Diddy Kongs Treehouse kids play area. Pokemon Pokeball themed Huss Frisbee. Bomerman lazertag and/or maze. Pac-Man themed Tilt-a-Whirl. Ect.

Why yes, I am a genious.

hmmm, has the movie been out long enough for me to start joking about it? What the hey, I'm doing it anyway.

I think they should have Passion of the Christ: The Ride. You get in line and the crew gives you the Ed Debevic's treatment times ten. Then you board a modified SLC. The modification is that the pads on the OTSR's are now solid steel...and the coaster is now 2 hours long. When you get off, you walk thru a themed tomb and go buy photo evidence that you survived. *** Edited 4/23/2004 1:27:10 AM UTC by RavenTTD***
