I was thinking about what John wardley said about him liking rides that take you on a journey. I feel that the current Flume although a nice ride does not do this. I (like others) would like to see The flume re-themed to fit mutiny bay but I would like it to take you through a story so you feel immersed in the experience. The idea I had was a creature has been causing mayhem in Mutiny bay. To allow the ride to take you through a story I would propose adding theming along the flume such as sunken boats and masts that squirt water to represent the creature, along with rock facades to make the flume feel like a bay type area. Each theming element would represent the creatures path through mutiny bay, sinking ships, knocking over barrels etc. The building that holds the main drop and duck theming would be themed as a boathouse and before the second to last drop strobes would start and a giant squid type creature would appear. The indoor section could also have tentacles coming through the walls and dripping water. The area by the station that the drop leads to would have a large ship, floating barrels and driftwood. This is just an idea
I have been thinking about my above idea and I thought I would create a story around the ride idea.The ride story
Captain Black and Captain England(Merry England
) were in a vicious battle for ownership of Mutiny Bay. Many years of battling commenced along with the destruction of Black's fine galleons.Black fled into the deep and vast oceans of Mutiny Cove. Captain England believed he had claimed the fine sea's of Mutiny bay however Black was returning with a secret weapon that struck fear into the hearts of Captain England's men. Black returned with an horrific creature that was trained to stalk the oceans and kill any of Captain England's men. This plan seemed to be working until the giant creature (tired of it's endless commands from black) went on a rampage through Mutiny cove destroying it's once glorious battle ships. Now the creature will let nobody leave Mutiny Bay and lurks in the dark waters of the cove waiting for fresh sailors to devour. Can you find the creature in your majestic galleon allowing the citizens of Mutiny Bay to be free or will you perish like sailors before you.
This was the story I thought suited my previous flume re-theme idea. Regarding my previous idea I would also like the addition of projected images in the inside section to create the effect of the squid attacking along with the other indoor elements explained in my previous post
