This is my first post on this board (I normaly post on the General Discusion board), but I wonder if anyone has brought up this subject yet. Do you think there are any video games that can made into a ride or an attraction? Heres some of my ideas.
1) Tempest. Yes, its a very old game (you know, the one where your on the edge of a black hole shooting things that look like bowties), but I think it can work very well for an indoor coaster with lots of flashy F/X.
2) Doom/Quake. Both can work well for an interactive darkride.
3) Tomb Raider. A themed minetrain ride perhaps.
4) Chrono Trigger. Does anyone on this board remember this wacky RPG that came out for the SNES about four years ago? You know, the one with that spiky haired dude who travels through time with his buddies and fights bad guys in different eras of time (think of it as Final Fantasy meets Doctor Who). I think it can make a cool motion simulator ride.
5) Sonic. How about a hyper named after Sega's fast moving rodent?
6) Centepede. Another oldie, but goodie from the 80's. A woodie sounds good for this one.
7) Final Fantasy. I think you can make a whole themed area dedicated to these famous series of RPG's. Perhaps a ride featuring Chocobo's (there these flightless birds that are used as a means of transportation in the FF games), a coaster or two (a cool name can be Masamune named after a very powerful sword thats featured in most of these games) some kind of interactive darkride where you fight monsters, a motion simulator ride themed to those airships that are usualy featured in the games maybe even a replica of Gold Saucer from Final Fantasy VII (in case you never played FF VII, Gold Saucer is this futuristic amusement park that includes a coaster where you can shoot targets in order to win prizes). Cloud, Squal, Cyan, Edgar, Aeris, Laguna,Tifa, Terra, Mog, Zell, Cid, Barret, Celes, Realm, Strago, Edea, Kefka, Sephiroth, Vincent, Red XIII, Umaro, Zell, Gau, Yuffie, Riona, Stezer, Shadow, Cait Sith, Locke, Sofia, and Saban should all be proud.
8) Oddworld. Could make for a very morbid darkride with very black humor.
Does anyone else think of any other video games that can be made into rides?
