my Stitch attraction
Posted 03 July 2009 - 02:32 PM
Last year, I downloaded "Pokemon Snap" on the Wii. I had never played it before. In it, you travel slowly through a variety of environments, trying to capture pictures of rare Pokemon. It's almost a virtual dark ride on a virtual omnimover.
So my proposed Stitch ride would borrow from this completely. Make a dark ride that includes some cool environments (Hawaii, outer space). Screens hidden throughout the attraction would allow for Stitch to pop out and "be seen." Guests would have to keep a keen eye out to see Stitch in each environment. Variations on the ride could include different aliens - like "can you spot this rare creature?"
The omnimover would need some kind of attachment to it a la Buzz Lightyear (Disneyland version). I'm not sure how you could "capture" the aliens - if a camera type device would work, or if something else would have to be created.
I think it would allow Stitch to be mischievous, cute, fun, and most importantly - small. His locations would vary from ride to ride, making it a different ride every time. A storyline could be that you're training to be a CIA agent hunting for aliens in a virtual environment.
Whew! That all sounds crazy to me, even as I typed it. But what do you think?

They don't really serve for any purpose. It more to keep guests entertained throughout the ride.
I do really like your idea photoscott7.
Since TSM is so popular, perhaps Disney will put something like this in. However, the building housing SGE is not large enough to hold such a ride. They would need to find another location for it.
I still think it would be a great idea though

Another twist could be to have the guest on the same side as Stitch against either Dr. Hamsterviel and some reprogrammed experiments or help Stitch save Lilo from Leory (Lilo & Stitch 3) These story lines could add some conflict and suspense without scaring the @$%^$%^ out of kids.
Also, I know someone mentioned this before, but Stitch could be a good replacement for Mushu (sp) at the animation thing. Any comments?
