What would you do with Sounds Dangerous How would you change things?

What would be awesome since it's so close to 'Lucasland' would be to have an attraction similar to the old Monster show, but show the process of a special effect shot and how much work goes into something like 30 seconds of an effects-laden film (like the bonus content on the Clone Wars dvd where they show you the time, money, people and labor that go into creating just 30 seconds of screen time). You could have the guests create foley sounds, music and even have someone jump into the scene via green-screen. Somehow come up with a plot that includes the entire audience (like maybe King Kong escaping from the stage in New York). Since everyone's in the film doing something (even the audience gets some screen time), sell small dvds (but seriously...who uses dvds anymore...that's SO 1998) or downloadable content of the show at the front of the park for guests to purchase. They'll be more inclined since they're in it.
At the end, the host could show some 'exclusive' content from an upcoming Disney film. Ads and this 'exclusive' could also be included on the content they purchase to sort of virally promote new product. Make the content interactive and drive people to movie sites, promos or whatever the flavor of the month is and BAM! Cash flow and happy guests who can show their friends how cool Disney is.
Oh...and have Ben Burtt do the intro...I bow to the man. And during Star Wars Weekends? Have the FX guys give talks about things they've worked on or are currently working on that tie in with Disney to get people excited. It'd be cool to listen to Matt Wood or Rob Coleman talk about their careers and see their work in such an intimate setting.

A thought I had that draws on several of the ideas already presented would be to use clips (60-90 seconds) from various Disney/Pixar movies and make them available for re-mastering the sound. They could pick a dozen or so scenes from various movies, let the audience vote on which one they wanted while in the queue. Then, once entering the theater, the CM would pick people at random for the voiceovers required. The clip could then be played thru, pausing at the points where sound effects were needed, and display a pop-up of 4 or 5 sounds and play each one allowing the audience to vote/pick the one to use. The voiceover people picked could be off-stage in a sound room and nobody in the theater would hear what they're saying until the end when everything is replayed. The audience could also pick background music if it was a dance scene of video montage.
