Yay, come online today and this topic has gained 3/4 threads within one day :D. I forgot how buzzing speculation really is, and the ride was only mentioned yesturday. Certainly an exciting time :D.
As for the Woodies location - Ug-Land is starting to make sense. We all know how unfinished the back of the area looks, likes it 'ready' for a new ride, and like a new ride was planned. The only concern for that is if Ug-Land carries on it's same tack of a theme, which would just kill the potential ride experience of a woodie, being squashed in a corner, and using some cheap, fake "radio" and a theme tune. The woodie should have a vague idyllic sense I feel. Something whilst fun, a but more 'classic'. Personally I think a ride with very old type theming (inspired by the parks past rides), and ITHOTMK as a theme tune would make a grand ride. But we'll see. A Woody and an Ug-Land retheme to make it into a respectable area would be ideal.
As for the Chute the chute thing, I think it'd be amazing for it to occupy an extremely well-themed area, with just itself and a flat occupying it. I'm gonna take Alton getting a woody and a water ride with a pinch of salt though. Seems a bit - mahoosive.
Speculation rools :D!
