    Little Mermaid RIDE

    I was looking at youtube and found this video of a little mermaid ride. I don't think it was an old ride concept. I think it might be something they are planning in one of the parks or something they were planning. check out the video here YouTube - The Little Mermaid - The Ride That Almost Was! and tell me what you think.

    I hope that this is what we see in the rumored Fantasyland addition, though I doubt it just because it has been shelved for so long, but I can dream cant I?

    Very cool ride concept, it looks like it answers the question "What would happen if you crashed into the sea while flying in your pirate ship?" Yeah, that's right, singing and dancing fish, of course! One of the things that does bother me is how you're suspended all this time and then go underwater where most of the cool effects are above you where the track is. Now what makes peter pan work well into making me think I'm really flying is that it's all dark in there hiding the track. Well, what if the ceiling isn't dark, it's bright blue with bubbles all around? And in the middle of the big blue world, is a track for your seashell? huh? I thought we were swimming freely under the sea. Also, how are they going to hide the track when you 'dive' underwater or 'resurface' again? I really can't think of how they'll be able to pull it off so that'll be one of the many little things that'll amaze me if I were to experience this attraction.

    If they ever make this ride, I sure hope they do it before MY little princess grows up and is too old to enjoy it! She's 7 now, and would absolutely love a "Mermaid" ride.

    The Little Mermaid attraction was originally slated for, but never built in, Disneyland Paris. I don't think it was ever intended for the United States. However, there's some rumors going around that a Little Mermaid attraction will be built in the San Francisco section of Disney's California Adventure.

    I saw this a few weeks ago and couldn't believe it wasn't real! I felt really dumb for a second, I thought maybe it was a mockup in a warehouse or even in another Disney park. Oops. It does look really real, though, doesn't it?

    The rumor I heard was this ride is going onto the land behind Pooh's Playful Spot, where 20kLUtS was and that PPS was only temporary until they were ready to build. The amount of land gained by gutting and filling in 20kLUtS with dirt is incredible so it's certainly feasible. That attraction took up a huge part of Fantasyland and PPS barely uses the space the queue area took up.
    Sometimes all you need is a reminder that out there lies a better place... a better world... a Walt Disney World.
