Is this a dud challenge?
I like this idea. Why are you asking? Has no one responded? I am just trying to think of a ride idea and other details. Not a dud... I don't believe.
I think everybody is too busy watching the Super Bowl...
I like it! I’m still working on mine. Can the logo be made on the computer or does it have to be hand drawn?

I've been thinking of my idea since landing at the airport.. and then Super Bowl happened. I'll submit afterward!
I have my fun zootopia-based ride being planned. But not enough energy left after that awesome game. Will be posting it in the AM.
Do you feel like time is running out? Does the falling of petals bring about the feeling of desolation?
Well, fear no more! You can have a cathartic experience in THE ROSE JAR.
In this new and exhilarating ride, you will enter a glass bell jar, where you will be strapped into a bungee jumping harness. You'll look like the most beautiful petal of the deepest red and enchanted rose you've ever seen. You'll be pulled up 100 ft up a very tall rose stem, where you'll feel one with the other lovely petals around you.
But wait! The curse on the Beast means that the rose is slowly dying, and you will leap off the stem to your destiny... only to bounce up again, and fall again in a seemingly never ending eternity while the Beast awaits his doom.
Guests must be at least 4' tall to ride.
I didn't specify. It only has to be original
Nice. I would totally ride that.
I completely forgot about the super bowl
I was out with family the whole day celebrating my dad's birthday, and then grocery shopping in an empty grocery store while everyone else was home watching the big game.
Taking inspiration from my character, I present:
(Obviously real Imagineers would do a much better job with the sign, but I don't have very many skills of an artist...)
You start in a memory orb-shaped ride vehicle and enter the first room, where you are "shrunk down" and enter Riley's mind. The next room is Headquarters, where a random one of the five emotions greets you (Joy happily welcoming you, Anger upset at the intruders, Fear terrified as to who you are and how you got there, etc.). You get sucked into a recall tube and take a ride into long-term memory. From then on, your emotion host guides you through Long Term Memory, where you pass by or through a few random landmarks (Abstract Thought, Imagination Land, the personality islands, Dream Productions, etc.). Characters from these areas will interact with you, causing the ride vehicle to move in response. Once you've made it past a few of these, your emotion will let you know that the Mind Workers figured out a way to get you back, so you board the Train of Thought with Bing Bong and ride the tracks for a bit until you get back to Headquarters, where you are taken out of Riley's head and grow to normal size.
This is similar to Star Tours in that you always get a random selection of emotion host and scenes/character interactions, but the ride mechanic is similar to Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey at Universal Studios (a moveable ride car on a track with projection screens where the action is happening).
Hop into your red velvet cushioned theater seat and ride though an episode of the Muppet Show. An entertaining music hall song and dance variety show. Kermit is your host as your theatre seat moves through the ride. Miss Piggy makes multiple appearances as her diva self, wonder pin, and in 'Pigs in Space'. Sympathize with Fozzie the Bear's stand up routine and his famously bad jokes, but laugh as hecklers Statler and Waldorf steal all the punch lines. Watch as Gonzo the Great completes his 'don't try this at home' stunts. Learn cooking from the Swedish Chef as he shares a favorite recipe. And much, much more!

I used my chosen character as inspiration.
On Race to the Lab, guests are asked by Kronk to retrieve the antidote to the potion he accidently served to the Emperor and his guests. They must pull the lever and ride the thriller cart down to Yzma's secret lab. Along the way, they must avoid the pit of alligators and outrun the guards. While guests do exit into the typical Disney gift shop, it includes a bakery counter with treats like spinach puffs, extract of llama juice and Shoulder Angel Cakes!

I think this may be similar to an attraction at Hollywood Studios (have not experienced this...), but I was already well into this idea by the time I found a reference to a 3D experience... but mine is a regular ride and so different.
Anyway, gave it a shot...
Let me know if this is enough. I was having a hard time trying to make it detailed and became overwhelmed. The photos I’ve included show some of what I would like the interior to look like.
I actually want to create ideas for rides for a living one day so this is absolutely not a dud idea! I personally have just been at work.
(I really hope it's okay that this isn't a drawing as much as it is a digital collage, I did not have the patience to mimic two different font styles)
Land: Tomorrowland (potential replacement for the sadly outdated Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin/AstroBlasters)
Guests step into Game Central Station. As they wait to board the train that will take them through the worlds of the arcade, they’ll pass billboards with references to classic game worlds like Dig Dug and Pacman. Favorite characters like Sonic the Hedgehog and Qbert will greet them with wisecracks, slogans warning them about ride safety, and how to play the game. But every few moments a projection of a Cybug will buzz overhead, warning the Guest of what’s to come.
As they sit down on the train, suddenly lights will start to flash red. Sergeant Calhoun will come over the loudspeaker:
“Attention, Game Central Station! Cybugs have overtaken the arcade and we need all hands on deck to wipe out this menace. So fire up those light guns, remain seated at all times, and keep those hands, arms, feet, and legs inside your vehicles. It’s make your mamas proud time!
At this, the cars of the train break apart to allow the guest to spin them like they do on Buzz Lightyear. They ride through rooms themed after Hero’s Duty and Sugar Rush, met along the way by Calhoun, Felix, Vanellope, and Ralph. Cybugs are randomly generated, and destroyed by the Guest’s light guns, which project a differently colored laser target on the Cybug so the guest can see what they’re doing. Guests are scored based on how many Cybugs and Cybug eggs they eliminate.
Towards the end of the Sugar Rush, Taffeta and the other racers tell you that you have to get to Fix It Felix Jr right away. The train cars rush to follow, still battling Cybugs along the way when the apartment building explodes. An animatronic King Candy flies up above the rooftops in Cybug form, taunting the riders. “You’ll never beat my Cybug minions without a beacon for them to follow!”
“Aim for the top of the mountain!” orders Sergeant Calhoun. “You heard the ugly . The Cybugs need a beacon and it’s not gonna light itself!” With encouragement from her, Ralph, Felix, and Vanellope, the guests continue to shoot a point towards the top of the area for bonus points. After a while, the beacon forms and the Cybugs swarm towards it.
“Now, Ralph! Squash those bugs!” Vanellope calls.
“I’m gonna wreck it!” Ralph wrecks a nearby tree to finish off the Cybugs. “I can fix it!” Felix uses his magic hammer to fix the building that King Candy destroyed. The characters thank the riders for their help and the train cars merge back into one. Animatronic versions of the four main characters, Sugar Rush racers, Hero's Duty soldiers, and the Nicelanders stand on top of the apartment building and wave goodbye. The terminal at Game Central Station where the riders exit has a mural on it with the phrase: “I am bad and that’s good. I will never be good and that’s not bad. There’s no one I would rather be than me.”
The ride itself would be mostly a fastpaced dark ride where the guest has a joystick that controls the car. Cybugs would be projections on a screen, but there would be practical/animatronic elements as well to bring guests into the worlds of Wreck-It Ralph. Examples would be shiny sugary candy trees in Sugar Rush, or soldiers in Hero's Duty. King Candy would resemble the dragon on Forbidden Journey- a very large, detailed animatronic.
“Falling With Style”
A toy story themed roller coaster where you sit in a cart designed after RC, lots of hard twists and turns. Then near the end the cart will rotate out from under you and you will be free hanging while it goes up a steep high climb that suddenly drops back down. At the bottom it will go back into the car to dismount.
Based on the classic Bedknob and Broomsticks but using today’s technology, this thrilling virtual reality, pseudo-roller coaster ride will transport you through the Bedknobs and Broomsticks story on your very own bed. Up to four guests ride at a time as you follow the full story from London to Pepperinge Eye, back to London, on to Naboomu, and back to London. You’ll see the sights, witness magic being cast, hunt for the book, land in the lagoon, be rescued by a bear (animatronics definitely), and more.
The technology behind the scenes can’t be revealed, but it is eerily similar in mechanics to Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.
I picture a ride similar to that of Star Tours... but instead of Star Wars it would be the fight scene with Buddy from the Incredibles. This ride would switch views of each character and have movement that resembles each view.. Like when Dash is running have the wind blowing or have the seating area bounce when the robot hits the ground. The lights and smells and feeling of the fight and arena would be in the seating area. The viewing of the seating area is a 360 degree view and the seats would turn accordingly.
I cannot draw so I will skip the logo.
With the advent of virtual reality, I'm surprised that Disney hasn't embraced it more; though I guess it may be seen as a gimic as they removed many former VR attractions and parks(RIP Disney Quest). I would sorta envision Main Street USA actually getting an VR attraction under the guise of a Historical Society Museum/Hall of Records so to speak; Center Street behind Uptown Jewlers would be the ideal location. Instead of coming to learn history, you would actually experience past Disney attractions/shows through a VR headset; the attraction/show would be on a rotating exhibit Schedule as not to have people rushing to experience old rides all at once. To keep with the Victorian/turn of the century theme, I envision an vintage airplane pilot helmet with the goggles as the VR screen and sound built in the ear flaps. Seating would be a singular Victorian/Steampunk inspired recliner.
It’s a cross between Ratatouille and Shanghai’s Pirates, with a bit of Test Track thrown in. You board a trackless vehicle that looks like a police cruiser as you join Judy Hopps on patrol throughout Zootopia. A combination of 3D projections and real props makes you feel like you are driving through all the different Zootopia neighborhoods and interacting with characters from the movie. You feel quite small when visiting the giraffe and elephant nudists as they stretch up and bend down while talking to Judy. And you feel huge when helping the citizens of Rodentia. Of course you feel the heat of the dessert and the cold of the arctic as you go through those zones and the jungle zone is dark with vines hanging all over. Throughout we meet up with various other characters from the movie. The various scenes are connected by a speeding car that we are chasing that we periodically catch up with and then lose again. We finally catch them at the end and find that it’s Flash of course.
I really like that idea of experiencing retired rides. Great for those who remember them fondly as well as those that never got the chance to experience them.
Love the name.
Sweet! Love all the detail. I'm ready to ride it!
