Forbidden Valley Future

by tjreevzi00 » Wed Aug 10, 2016 5:12 pm

Okay, I'm trying to be a more active member of the forums so I thought I'd create one.

The area Forbidden Valley seems to be an odd one at the moment. Before Air was the oasis at the bottom of the valley if I'm wrong please correct me.

Now with a super random space theme stuck there and the futuristic roller coaster restaurant could we see eventually a full re-theme of Forbidden Valley and Nemesis, it could be possible as the nemesis creature could be an 'alien from space' instead of from the underground? A re-theme would probably lead to the removal of Sub-Terra or a really good re-theme to a space control centre or something. If the whole area could be immensely re-themed with a couple new flats it would be the best option I think, however, very optimistic and I think this is what I think could also happen;

-The two very different themes will remain
-The Blade will be removed
-The area of which Ripsaw and The Blade were will be become a night, and possible day, entertainment area. With a permanent outdoor stage with entertainment every night for hotel guests.
-Galactica and Nemesis will be open till late along with the roller coaster restaurant.
-Possibly see a new restaurant open too, perhaps slightly cheaper, could always expand out of the park onto to the car park.
-Sub Terra will re open.

Another idea could be that new flat rides are installed where Ripsaw and The Blade were with Blade being moved to Mutiny Bay. Then the car park could be become an entertainment hub for hotel guests similar Downtown Disney, obviously not on such a grand scale.

There are so many different options as I doubt Forbidden Valley will remain like it is for long. So what are your ideas?

Ps. if this topic is in the wrong place sorry, please move it as there are no facts just pure imagination

Nemesis came from space, so for me it is tied together in a way, but only loosely. :)

But it's Merlin ;)

An outdoor stage wouldn't really fit FV - shows are mainly geared towards the family audience and FV isn't a family area.

An idea that I've had in the past would result in a separate area being created where the Air car park currently is, which would be a future themed area. Could have a couple small dark rides, a track ride, and perhaps a show area. Thinking of it, this entire area of the park could be open for guests at night.

Nemesis' theme would be very unlikely to change. The fact that it has such a detailed storyline is part of what made it so special in 1994. Rollercoasters having a theme was something that was fairly new at that time so Wardley's idea became a bit of a legend. To change a ride that was so purposely designed for that specific theme would be a massive step to take and a huge risk. Changing the theme of a ride that is famous partly because of its theme would not be a great idea in my opinion. And as Ryan said, Nemmy came from space so Galactica fits in loosely, just like Air did.
And what would happen when the creature appeared?

I feel that Forbidden Valley would change quite little in the future. I think that the area up till Galactica will keep a similar, if not the exact same Forbidden Valley theme and still use the name Forbidden Valley. A new ride might have been added to the former Ripsaw site and possibly a new ride on the Nemesis Sub-Terra site. The Galactica area could be made in the a new themed area themed around space travel and exploration etc. and would remain the same in attractions and experiences that is currently has!

I think now the theme does work with Galactica. I not been on it yet but it does suit Forbidden valley now. If it wasn't for copyright laws I would rename it forbidden Planet. The rocks,props and red water I always felt You been on another planet for the past 22 years.

Forbidden Valley

The forbidden valley area in the park is a shame now to be honest , ripsaw has gone ! Which fitted in really well as a piece of debree thrown by the nemesis creature. Galactica is honestly the worst change in the park as the VR is terrible and Air theming was much better! Something I would do with forbidden valley is put a flat ride that fits the theme of Galactica ( space themed) and add another 1 or 2 flat rides to around the nemesis. I would love something like this to happen in the park !

Thanks Lewis ;)

Glaactica would be so much better if the VR was more reliable but I have to say I personally like the Galactica theming better as Air had very little theming. I have always thought a Disk O Coaster themed to Galactica would fit in very well.

Just thought i would say , you have a good idea and turning the galactica area into a space travel , exploration area would be a good idea but the problem would be that it doesnt fit into forbidden valley. If i was towers i would change the galactica themeing to something that fits the nemesis creature. Maybe turn galacticas themeing to a government trying to fight off the nemesis creature so the ride could be called 'Savior' or something like that. I know towers wouldnt do this but its a cool idea :)

I always felt that Air fit to FV. Galactica does not. It may just be because the rocks up the Galactica end are now grey instead of the usual brown colour.
And what would happen when the creature appeared?

While I personally like the Galactica theme, before Galactica I thought that Air could have been transformed into a Phalanx military flight academy, where you would be trained to fight the Nemesis monster, which would have also fitted in well with the Nemesis Sub Terra storyline.
