    Millionaire Closing

    CONFIRMED: Millionaire is closing on August 19th.... Will be replaced with a Toy Story themed ride....
    TRICIA JONES: I heard that you were going to propose to Brandi Svenning at some theme park. When are men going to learn that women want ROMANCE, not Mr. Toad's Wild Ride...
    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

    Millionaire was never my favorite, but MGM needs more rides, not shows though in my opinion. Does anyone have any more info on it?

    Millionaire was chosen for several reasons.. ABC is losing the rights to the show soon.... Also, the new ride needed a large soundstage.. and Millionaire provided that large space.. So, it made sense...

    The whole "Sounds Dangerous" area needs to be reworked and something else put there. Superstar Television needs to come back.

    Something "nightmarish" maybe be heading to the Sounds Dangerous area... As long as the "NIGHTMARE" happens "BEFORE CHRISTMAS" and not for a new themed Halloween hard ticket event in MGM...

    Aww, I really liked Millionaire. Too bad that it's closing. Although I'll get over it because I can't wait to see the new Toy Story ride when it comes out!

    How would ABC lose the rights to a show that they created?
    I don't know too much about that type of thing, but if thats the case, how does Disney keep the rights to Mickey Mouse, a character they created?
