Indy / Pirates "Crazy Idea"
Posted 07 June 2011 - 07:59 PM
so, what if Disney decided to do this at DHS:
Demolish Backlot Express (would anyone miss the iconic burgers and chicken fingers?)
In its place, build the Indiana Jones simulator/adventure ride
Now, here's the kicker:
replace the Indiana Jones stunt spectacular with a Pirates of the Caribbean themed stunt show. it could keep the same idea of a working set, but now it could involve water and other pirate-themed stunts (high wire, more sword fighting, swinging from great heights) that are unique to that genre. plus, it would feature a more modern film (one that kids would recognize more readily), but since the style would still be classic-buccaneer, it would be able to live for a long time, much like Indiana Jones has. and with all of the movies to work off of, they range of stunts and sets you would be able to source from would be quite large as well.

I would love to see the Indy attraction come to WDW but there have been rumors about it for years. I would think that if it was possible, it would have been done a while ago.
Right now DHS is a little more than half day visit for us. I'm not really sure what they could do to make it more. They seem to be trying to lure the kids more with Toy Store etc but the lines are usually so long. If we don't get fastpasses, we skip it until next trip. Maybe they just need more attractions in general to disperse the crowds somewhat.

I agree, Matt. While the food is mediocre (at best) the air conditioning is a nice break and I've found that it's usually less crowded than other counter service at DHS.

A. My nostalgia kicks in with Pirates being a ride first and then a movie. The Ride is in Magic Kingdom, there doesn't really need to be any other POTC attraction in WDW (I'm still not sure how I feel about the one in DisneyQuest).
B. Universal has a Sinbad stunt show, and I feel a POTC Stunt Show would be just a bit to similar, since they already copied the layout of the Indy theatre for that show anyways.
C. Don't get rid of the only restraunt in DHS that has self serve drinks. I hate paying for refils after I wash down my mediocre burger and chicken fingers.
