You'll be more deilghted when you are surprised the first time you ride it.

I don't know if it's just me, but Tomb Raider: The Ride has motion base (Spiderman) written all over it. This can't be a coaster, and obviously it's not just a theater, because it's called The Ride. I'm sure there will be vehicles similar to Spiderman's, but fashioned to Tomb Raider. Anyone agree with me? ----- The Thrill Ride http://thrillride.8k.com

I think whatever it may be, with KI's past, we can be sure it'll be unbelievable. PKI has always amazed us with their ideas and rides, we just need to be patient, and keep our ears to the rails, so to speak.

Have you all heard. I was talking to David, a pki (official) he said 3 things. 1. TR:TR will take up 14,000 sq ft. 2. One of the buildings will be 8 stories tall. 3. TR:TR will cost no less than $40 million. Also I don't understand why you think TR:TR will be like Spiderman. I mean Jennifer, another pki (official) said that is most deffenitly true that you WILL go face first straight down into a pit of lava. I don't see how this could be like Spiderman the ride. Could someone please explain this to me as well as what is behind the opening doors in the one painting of TR:TR when they are in the quee line and the stone doors are opening. I can't figure out whats in the backround.
This "thing" better be good. I refer to it as a "thing" because none of us have a clue. The best part is.. I live 5 minutes from PKI.. and if its good.. I'll be sure to ride it plenty of times. Like SOB.. 42 times so far this year. :-0
That looks to me as if it were a section of the line with some sort of video screen involved with the story telling. Just a guess, though. And remember, you can't ever rely too much on artist renderings. Their purpose is very general.
I'm pretty certain that if you can speculate what the ride will be by comparing it to existing rides, it is wrong. The PKI gang seem pretty emphatic about it being unique and introducing a whole new concept of a thrill ride. Sure, some of it may be hype but I don't think they'd be making that big a deal about it if it were just a modified (bigger/better/more elaborate) version of some existing concept.
I think one is more likely to hit upon what it might be by trying to invent your own new thrill ride concept rather than to keep thinking in terms of existing rides.
