Ideas for rides based on T.V./Movies

Yeah, I like the idea of Family Guy: The Ride. Of course, it'd be a way overrated piece of crap which will be removed a few years later and then reopened in another few years for God-knows-what reasons. :)

DawgByte II's avatar For Family Guy: The Ride... I think you mean way under-rated gold-mine, and then re-opened in a few years based upon its success on the DVD Coaster video review that was released after the coaster was taken down.
...this time, debated whether to stick with Six Flags and their censorship, or go where it'd have more success: Cedar Fair. ;)

john peck's avatar TRANSFORMERS: THE RIDE

While two trains, one Autobot, one Decepticon, race and dual, they dive around each other and near the end, leave the track, transform into robots and nearly blow each other up!

also for you family guy fans, seth mcfarlane is coming out with a new cartoon, a more political American Dad.

auscoasterman: It sucks that you don't understand jokes. I think live would be much harder without a brain and a sense of humor.

Turbo: Is this in addition to Family Guy's return, or was I just wrong about that?

John Peck: Uhh. . .

Down is the new up.

John peck,

Wow! What a perfect theme for a ride. You know that there are talks of a Transformers live action movie in the works, right? Who knows, Maybe we will see something like your ride idea someday.

But what about my ingenious idea? Nintendo?...umm, anybody?

DawgByte II's avatar Word: You are more than correct about Family Guy's return... just check out for many updates. To premiere in January next year, thanks to a lot of unproduced scripts that were already done before the show was cancelled pernamentally the first time. Cartoon Network: Most definately... Fox? Only if the censors aren't too restrictive!


more rides based upon TV shows... How about a new Hanna-Barabara Cartoons section based upon classic cartoons like Huckelberry Hound, Mugilla Gorilla, and that damn little yellow duck... all mainly themed around Cartoon Network's Boomerang Network (hmm... Boomerang... that sounds like a good name for a coaster of some sort).

PKD has (or had) the Happy Land of Hanna-Barbara.

I do think some video games could make excellent interative rides, but if they are just based on the story, I think they would not apeal to that many people.

Mr. DawgByte the second was just kidding, Right DawgByte...

My interpratation was that you like this area of PKI and PKD a lot. Or maybe there is something I do not know. Where the themes changed at these two parks or somthing?

I am a huge fan of the Transformers. Are Mr. Peck and I the only two people here that know what the "Transformers" are?

DawgByte II's avatar I know what transformers are... they're those little boxes on the utility poles outside the houses.

When one of those baby's blow... there be a sparks-a-flyin'!

Oh yea, there was also a really badly animated cartoon of some sort along with a set of toys in the mid-80's... and a newer modern version, without the cool transforming sound effect from the 80's.
A themed ride... that does not make.

Ummm...Thanks, word. I've only been called "pretty" a few times in my life. I don't even have a profile pic up. I'll return your compliment (-I think) with one to you. I like your siggie:-)

Mr. DawgByte II, WHAT??? Transformers was the second greatest cartoon/toy franchise of it's time just behind HE-MAN and the Masters of the Universe. Presently, Transformers are a lot more popular. Just sit and watch the old Transformers animated movie again and tell me that it isn't better than you remember. (imho, of course. I am laughing, I am not angry. It's funny. Just clearing up any misinterpretations of my mood on the subject.) A god eats planets, for crying out loud.

Sorry for the interruption. Please continue.

Transformers the Movie, what a classic, ok now be honest, did you cry when Optimus died? What about a Deuling Dragons type ride themed to G I Joe and Cobra?

Let's shoot us some deer Joe Joe!!!!

How about they rename SoB "Will and Grace the Ride" They are equally painful.

I wasn't expecting Optimus to die. I was just a little, innocent kid. Heros aren't supposed to die when you are a kid. I balled like a newborn.

I took my Optimus Prime toy and put him in a shoe box after I saw the movie. It was like a funerial.

What a violent animated move.

Robocoaster's avatar Calling all Blue Blazer Irregulars!

On this simulator/dark ride, where all ride-ops wear a nametag that says "John", we start out by boarding a vehicle we've been told is about to participate in an experiment to break the sound barrrier! We are "luanched" and are soon speeding away when the vehicle swerves and heads straight for a mountain. Moments before impact, the area of the mountain directly in front of us dissolves, and all lights are out as we are treated to some seriously trippy images :). When the lights return, the voice of Peter Weller informs us that we just travelled through the mountain!

Immediately after hearing that, a hologram appears before our eyes and informs everyone that our little trip has allowed beings from the formless void of the eighth dimension to invade our world. We can't see them, but they can see us. Our only hope is a top neurosurgeon, race car driver, rock star and comic book hero...

We're further told that these beings have stolen the propulsion device that enabled our journey, and plan to use it to return to their home world, from which they were banished. The alien in front of us, from the same world, would just a soon destroy the Earth to extinguish the threat.

It's up to us and Team Banzai to race after these beings (Lectroids, actually), and recover the device. We have 88 minutes to achieve our goal. Or else...:(

Of course, the ride wouldn't last that long;). While straying from the movie in places to streamline the story and add a few surprises, I'll bet me and my geeky friends would hardly be the only ones willing to trek wherever we needed to in order to get on this ride.

And if the ride proved popular, perhaps we'd finally see that long-proposed sequel dealing with the world crime league (sigh).

They Live. We Sleep.

"Here, take the controls. It handles just like a truck."

"Good.....What is a truck?"

Robocoaster's avatar LOl, EV! Now, perhaps you can explain what that watermelon was doing there?
