Just to clarify - Verbolten does have outdoor sections, just the majority of the ride is indoors with lots of tightly banked curves through set pieces.

And what makes that work is the fact that it messes with your eyes.

I just visualize stalagmites/stalactites and then beams holding up areas that are "prone to cave-ins" as you rush through the sets on your ore-cart themed trains. 

I thought about the "cave-in" elevator drop.  The lights could go out and then you hear bats and see their eyes all around you and then DROP.  Oh man this is such a cool idea and needs to be implemented

Wow! Love the idea of a ride going inside and out. Its brilliant! But SDC does need another dark ride so we have something else to do in the rain.

The drop track is what i've opined on about a Fire in the Hole makeover. Same ride , just updated to the  bridge where real makeover begins as the bridge becomes the drop track  that leads into a launch into the darkness and splash at the end. But...the cave thing is an idea too.

Would you replace TNT with this?  By having a structure for the indoor section, the 21st Century backsides of things could be masked more than they are with the current TNT.  Plus, the proximity to the mining area of the park and the cave area would still fit with the new ride.

I love the everything about Thunderation BEFORE the lifthill. I want nothing to happen that part of the ride. If it was replaced that segment needs duplicated. It is as solid a mine train as there is .

No, I don't want it to replace TNT.  I think it could go over in that area though - maybe the show building could go where the current cast member parking lot is over there

The load station entrance would be between Hospitality House and Reunion Hall
The station itself would be over the access road/entrance to the cave (this might be a good time to redo the cave entrance area on the bottom floor)

The coaster would launch into the special effects area through a tube themed to look like a mine shaft held up by timbers.  Have lantern effects and so on.  The launch then goes into the show effects building.

The drop finale in the show effects building then launches into the outdoor section with a few hills and helices.  It will then go back into the show building and will then end by going into a brake tube that goes back into the station.

I really think this would be a win for the park and would put a major attraction up on the square and that alone would help disperse crowds for the park.

Opinions?

Wouldn't it kind of feel like you're leaving the park to get to the ride? Or am I not understanding the map correctly?

^I agree, but what if we rebuilt the mill and mine restaurant to incorporate the dining rooms with the ride and queue.  I don't see a ride or anything else between the Hospitality House and Reunion Hall.  Traffic is congested enough without clueless people with their heads in their Pathfinders trying to find the new ride.  I love how Pirates has its dining area and the ride intertwined.

So it would be directly on your right, right when you walk in?
