-A Willy Wonka adventure, maybe a fun house type with the attraction ending in the candy store like the one in the movie.
- an adventure ride, part water-part coaster, or maybe all water based on Atlantis. Here’s a scenario taken from a partial movie plot…
[I]After traveling through a network of caves and a dormant volcano, a team finally reaches the city of Atlantis. They find the ancient city is still populated. They discover that the language of the Atlanteans is in fact the basis of many existing languages, allowing the Atlanteans to understand English. The team is brought before the King, who wants the explorers to leave immediately, but is convinced to allow them to stay one (insert* ride). Atlantis has fallen into ruin and the true nature of the ‘Heart of Atlantis’ must be uncovered, in that it supplies the Atlanteans with their power and longevity through the crystals worn around their necks.
In the ensuing battle within the dormant volcano, as the crystal is brought back to the city, the volcano suddenly becomes active and erupts. With lava flowing towards the city, Kida, in her crystal form, rises into the air and creates a protective shield. The lava breaks away to show a newly restored Atlantis. The surviving crew returns to the surface and promises that they will keep the discovery of Atlantis a secret. [/I][/QUOTE]
I don’t think Disney owns the rights to Willy Wonka and I don’t want Disney going through another protracted battle over a property like they did with Winnie The Pooh. Maybe Goofy’s Candy Company as the back story.
Speaking of properties, Sea World has Journey To Atlantis in all three parks plus Escape From Pompeii at BG Williamsburg and there’s the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas.
Better to develop using The Little Mermaid for the back story.
Not saying there’s anything wrong with your ideas, just the properties they’re tied to.
