Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride and 20,000 leagues under the sea are two I would love to see again at WDW. I think Mr. Toad is still at DL… not sure.[/QUOTE]
Mr Toad is still in Disneyland and they resurrected 20,000 Leagues in 2006 with a Finding Nemo overlay.
I’m not sure if there should be a park for the retired rides, especially as I’ve been advocating a new coaster and thrill dominated park and many of the closed attractions are some of the tamest.
But I would like to see 20,000 Leagues return in its original form mostly because I never made it to WDW before it was killed.
By the way, speaking of closed rides, in the past few years a few of my favorite wooden coasters have ceased to exist because the park closed and the ride couldn’t be moved or a buyer wasn’t found or in the case of Hercules at Dorney Park and Psyclone at Magic Mountain that were simply torn down because some riders felt they were too rough and have been replaced or The Rattler at Six Flags Fiesta Texas which had its first drop severely attenuated.
At Universal, of course King Kong and Back to the Future are gone although now in California and we’ll assume sometime soon in Orlando, there will be a new King Kong ride themed to the recent Peter Jackson remake.
I miss the Miami Vice stunt show and that’s gone for about 13 years now.
But we can’t always get what we want, can we?
