[QUOTE=bribren;1057700]Disney could add a 5th gate but would need to compete directly in the thrill ride department. I dont think it would be another kingdom with parades and such. I think it would be more like typhoon lagoon model. A mini themed park, focusing on thrill attractions.Admission might be more in line with the water parks.
A park like this with some late night midway lights type of attractions could lure some of the people away from city walk and make WDW more appealing to the 16-24 yo crowd.
There may be different admissions as well to accommodate non riders.[/QUOTE]
I disagree on price.
In order for it to compete with IOA and Busch Gardens, it’s going to have to have 5 world class coasters on opening day (per my Disney’s Coaster Kingdom scenario) and each of those coasters is going to have cost at least $25-35 million each. Add to that some sorts of simulator type attractions that rival Spiderman and Harry Potter’s Flight. This is going to be a full priced park offering pay one price ticketing.
If you follow out a two tier pricing scheme, you’re going to have CMs checking all day and night for wristbands or tickets. Not exactly a good thing.
