Enjoy the ride as we share what new attraction we would put in a Disney park.
Being an Imagineer entails being part scientist and storyteller, I am none of those things. Even in my dreams those are not my great strengths. I can only appreciate and respect the amazing talents and craft that goes into designing a new ride. My task today is to dream and dream big enough to create a ride. Let's see what my minds eye can conjure up.
My ride would combine the best of the classics such as Horizons, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, The Swan Boats, Hydrolators, Mr. Toads Wild Ride, Seacabs and Snow White's Scary Adventure,.
The storyline would fantasmical. A journey through time and space combining a fable, history in futuristic vignettes and real scientific research in a marine life setting.
It would be dark and fast, gliding through the air one minute and taking dips through water another. A solar powered hydroplane made of recycled materials would make a great vehicle. Imagine the vintage 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea ride vehicle plussed up.
There would be light snacks and beverages served pre-flight while waiting in the interactive queue. At the end of the ride we'd all get a soaking before venturing off into the Florida sun.
What kind of ride would you create if you were an Imagineer?
