    Jet Stunt Extreme - Seaworld

    This reminds me of when I was in the park and saw the accident when a guy lost control and his jet ski slammed into the crowd!

    My idea is for a Chinese restaurant to be located in the unused giftshop next to Lethal Weapon, at MW. The Double Dragon Chinese Restaurant would be a large capacity restaurant, that serves westernised Chinese cuisine. The restaurant would be open for lunch and dinner. The interior would be extensively themed to a traditional Chinese interior setting, and the Lethal Weapon theme of the adjacent ride would be continued with the restaurant. The menu at Double Dragon would include popular Chinese dishes such as Fried Rice, Sweet & Sour Chicken, Steak & Blackbean, and delicous Chicken & Sweet Corn soup. Prices at Double Dragon are very reasonable, with main meals averaging AU$20.

    My idea is to create a high budget, huge drawcard stage production for Movie World, based on the Harry Potter franchise. The reason for this is that I assume Warner Bros have the rights to the brand, and it seems a HUGE waste not to utilise it. The show would be located within the Show Stage, major interior and exterior renovations/retheming would be essential, This would include the creation of a mini Harry Potter themed land, out in the front courtyard area. The cost of a show such as this would obviously be very high, however I do believe that it is plausible that Movie World could spend up huge on a show such as this. Here are my reasons why: 1) Harry Potter is an enourmous brand name, wordwide. This means that, with a big marketing push, the attraction could drive huge numbers to the park, from around the world. 2) This would be the first EVER HP stage production. This again being a huge marketing point. 3) A big budget attraction will be needed at MW soon enough, with Dreamworld supposedly planning a very large scale attraction(s) for their anniversary, MW will need something to keep up with them. ACT ONE: As the Harry Potter theme music begins to play, the curtain opens to reveal the grand Howarts castle, nestled atop a clifface, lit only by the moonlight. As the theme music continues, there is calm among the picturesque setting, until swooping sound begin to interfere, and suddenly, Harry and the gang zoom over the audience on their brromsticks. As they make therir landing on the stage, the group chat about their summer vacations. Before long, Dumbledore runs towards Harry, Ron, ad Hermione, and mutters with great worry that the schools sacred Quidditch Cup Trophy had been stolen over th esummer break. Dumbledore gives the gang the task of searching for the Trophy, and to bring it back home to Hogwarts. ACT TWO: The gang are now in 'Muggle world' where they search many places for the trophy. During this scene, they encounter dementors. ACT THREE: After unsuccessfully searching the Muggle world for the trophy, the group make their way back to the world of Hogwarts. While back there, they make their through the woods, where they encounter dragons, and a gaint three headed dog. This scene includes the climactic battle scene, where they eventually recover the lost Trophy. ACT FOUR: Back at Hogwarts, Harry, Ron, and Hermione are greeted by Dumbledore and many of the students of Hogwarts to congratulate and thank them for recovering the prothy. The scene includes a large celebration by the school. The production ends with only Harry, Ron, and Hermione on stage together, talking about their adventure, before they mount their broomsticks and fly off back over the audience.

    Haha, no I just Photoshopped it to look like that. Totally looks smarter

    Just in case anybody isn't aware, I updated my post with added drawings. Just to be clear, for this challenge, is the show stage the Hollywood Stunt Driver area, or something else?

    NOTE: I have updated my post with images, and numbers to help follow along. Also, why can't I delete my old post? Here is my pitch for a new themed area for Dreamworld, including a main attraction dark ride. First a little back story/context for the ride; (P.S. sorry for the wall of text) (P.S.S. Haven't had a chance to scan the layout drawings, but hopefully will soon) The idea for the project would be to extend the theme of Tiger Island, into a larger area that encompasses heavy theming, and multiple new attractions. The new themed land would be titled 'Indian Jungle'. The land that 'Indian Jungle would encompass, would be the backstage area between Tiger Island, White Water World, and Ocean Parade. To construct 'Indian Jungle' there would be a major configuration of the pathways between Ocean Parade and Tiger Island. This would include the relocation of 'Spongebob Flypants', and the removal/modification of the 'Rocket Power Bumper Beach' building. The new 'Indian Jungle' 'land' would be a large courtyard/street that would act as a main area, with pathways leading off to the lands attractions. The land would encompass a very chaotic, marketplace/village atmosphere, similar to that of a real Indian village. Heavy theming would be used in order to create realistic facades, and actual buildings along the street area, including merch and food stores. The new 'Indian Jungle' land would be the home of 3 main attractions; 'Tiger Island', the brand new dark ride 'Snakecharmer', and a thrilling new adventure show. As for the ride itself, think a cross between Scooby-Doo Spooky Coaster, and Indiana Jones (Disneyland). Coming to DREAMWORLD late 2011 - SNAKECHARMER Guests enter the Asian land with a open courtyard of a traditional Indian village, a chaotic atmosphere will be created to replicate the busy streets of India. From this main street area, lies the entrance to Tiger Island, and also to the major dark ride attraction 'Snakecharmer'. Through the entrance gate, the village market themeing continues, gradually turning into the jungle themed queue line. (1) When guests reach the front of the queue they are moved inside a small themed house/building (in order to disguise the fact they are entering the large show building), where guests are seated and addressed by American Scientists. Guests are told the ancient myth of an elderly Indian snakecharmer who is over 200 years old!, and are then notified that they have been selected to accompany the Scientists through the Indian jungle, on a quest to find the elusive man. (2) Guests are then moved out of the pre-show building, and into the ride building where they are still in a jungle setting, but it is now nighttime (the idea being that it has turned dark while they were inside the pre-show building), they are walked along a short path to the ride vehicle loading bay. At the loading bay, guests are then grouped into groups of 3 or 4, and loaded into ride vehicles themed to Auto Rickshaw's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autorickshaw). The ride vehicle then travels along the ride track, continuing the guest's journey through the jungle setting. The vehicle travels at a reasonably slow pace for the beginning of the ride, but does speed up/slow down depending on the surrounding area (For instance, a loud tiger roar may be heard, followed by an acceleration in speed to indicate a "getaway"). (3) The ride slowly builds in pace, as the track encounters more rugged, mountainous terrain, the vehicles are thrust around in a more rapid and random speed in order to navigate through the built up landscape. (4) When the vehicle finally exits the large mountains and rock formations, it slows to a very slow pace, and an open landscape is presented, giving an eerie, lonely feel to the riders. Up ahead, the ride vehicle is faced with a foreboding ancient Buddhist temple. The temple is formed of crumbling rocks, and is similar to ruins. The temple is intended to have a large scale, and is thus built to the very top of the show building (selective lighting is used to give this illusion, but not show the top section). The vehicles on board sound system is interrupted by a radio message from the scientists, they tell the riders that the temple ahead is the home of the Snakecharmer, and that they must enter, but with extreme care. The vehicle edges forwards toward the entrance to the temple. Through the large stone door entrance, the vehicle begins a slow ascent. Terrifying sound effects, smoke, and air blowers, all contribute to an eerie atmosphere inside the cavernous temple. (5) Upon arrival at the top of the track inside the temple, the vehicle is abruptly stopped, and a large silhouetted figure emerges onto the tracks ahead. A loud, rumbling voice yells out to the riders: "Who goes there. Who dares enter my temple? Be gone with you, be gone!" the figure then disappears in a bang of smoke. Sitting in silence, and stillness, the riders see another figure emerge from ahead, a giant cobra snake, as big as the vehicle itself! The vehicle slowly backs away, along the track, gaining momentum and forcing the riders backwards, down the way they came in the temple (lights, smoke, and chaotic sound effects are essential here). The fast backward descent, being chased by the giant snake is terrifying! (6) The vehicle eventually reaches the exit of the cave, where they have finally escaped the chase of the snake. The vehicle then slows down, and is reversed as it makes its way back to the loading area, while being debriefed, and thanked by the scientists for discovering the Snakecharmer. (7) Guests then exit the attraction through another section of the pre-show building, and then walk through the jungle terrain back to the village street. -------- Here is an overview layout of the new 'Indian Jungle' land. Here is that same overview, as how it would roughly be placed in the existing Dreamworld layout Here is a layout of the ride building. (Note I have updated my text description to include numbers to help follow along with what is happening) Finally, here is a concept drawing for how the temple entrance would look inside the ride building

    Oh damn. I can upload some layout drawings tonight. Or will it be too late? And no, I don't have any specific details on the show. But I was thinking it would be maybe based around the film set of a major Bollywood movie, even a somewhat stunt-based film, and would include big dance numbers combined with stunts and special effects. I figure those ideas could add up to a funny and entertaining show that would fit the themed area well.
