It gonna be much more than that, it's not a flat ride in a box. On clue may help you from the website. Viacom is in on this, judging from two other ride they helped out with this is gonna be extraordinary.
The truth of the matter is no one here has any idea what it is. PKI & Jeff Seibert have done an excellent job with this......i mean look at how they have marketed even the construction of this ride. This has to be the most professional ride promotion i have ever seen. I watch PKI and wonder how many years of planning went into this. ----------------- johnathan
Take Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye's Queue Line at DisneyLand...you know, the moving walls, spikes, etc. Now, instead of an Intamin EMV at the end, put a Huss Giant Top Spin with some fire and ice effects. TA DA!
I think the Giant Top Spin idea is just a rumor. They are simply moving the Flight of Fear into this new building and retheming it to Tomb Raider to fool all guests.
Seriously, I think the ride will kick butt with all of the theming, etc. However, the lines are going to be insane! When I was at PKI earlier this season for one of the ACE walkbacks, the PKI rep mentioned that they may do a Beast/Tomb Raider combo ACE walkback in 2002 (since they are both in the same section of the park). That would be great!!

If you read, it say that this ride will cost at least $40,000,000 and will be a bigger exspansion than the Action Zone. So if you think that a Giant Top Spin cost $40,000,000 and is worth more than Drop Zone + Xtreme Skyflyer + Top Gun then your crazy. This is definently BIGGGGGGGG..... Think about it, this ride cost more than Millenium Force, I don't think it just a dressed up flat ride.
if it's that much then there is something I bet that is yet to be built. Mabey they're wating and right now they're just building the like pashe 1 of it or something? I dunno n e thing is possiable. -----------------
