Godzilla 3D: The Ride NEEDS to happen

Postby gzilla46 » Mon Dec 24, 2012 6:33 am

You know King Kong's ride in Universal Studios. No, not the one that got burned down in 2008, but the newest version in 3D. I went on it and it was epic. You actually felt like you were caught in the middle of Kong's fight with the T-Rexes. So, how can you possibly top a King Kong ride?

With a Godzilla ride of course.

Peter Jackson himself made the Kong ride, so I think he should make the Godzilla ride at Universal Studios Hollywood. It should take all the technologies of King Kong 360 3D and expand on them.

It needs to feel like you're actually caught in the middle of Godzilla's rampage in Hollywood and Downtown LA.

What do you think of the idea for Universal Studio's Hollywood's latest ride? What suggestions do you have?

I love Transformers the Ride. I also love the Transformers movies as well as the franchise in general.

Now, what suggestions do you have for the Godzilla ride?

Rather than be in the middle of a rampage, why not be in the middle of a massive Kaiju battle?

Hmm. That could be interesting. Maybe it could be a Godzilla rampage first, then when he's about to destroy the rider's car, another kaiju shows up and we've got a huge battle.

Yeah and gradually more and more kaiju show up. Maybe' you're a VTOL sent by the military to study the monsters as they fight?

Did he say why?

Jackson is in the same boat as Ray Harryhausen and hates Godzilla/Toho for making King Kong vs. Godzilla.

Yeah, I remember Harryhausen calling Godzilla a rip off of the Beast from 20,000 fathoms. He's kinda right in a way =\

I'm kind of surprised how many people are against this idea for a ride. If it's possible, why not?

^Pretty much. Except with more horror and suspense. I think it should start with a rainy, windy night (like the Twister ride) with sirens ringing and jet planes flying over the audience towards the coast, eventually being blown up by his atomic ray. And then you say Godzilla's large profile and then he you hear his roar. He gets closer and closer and then as he's about to get "you", another monster appears and so-on-and-so-forth.

I've got an idea.

The ride's walkthrough section (waiting in line) is the UNGCC HQ. The riders have been chosen as test pilots for the new Super-X aircraft. You get in to the ride vehicle and you take off. You're flying around enjoying the scenery, when a blip on the radar appears. It's Godzilla and he's headed your way! You dodge atomic breath blasts and Godzilla grabs you and is about to bite the Super-X, when another monster appears (give suggestions as to who). You witness the battle up close until the JSDF is able to distract the two and you make your safe way home. At the end of the ride is a gift store for Godzilla related merchandise.

Well it was just a quick write-up. Maybe I'll post a more detailed version someday.

Too late. A 3-D Godzilla motion simulator ride opened at Sanrio Puroland in Japan in 1994. It was called Monster Planet Of Godzilla and featured brand new scenes shot by Koichi Kawakita featuring Godzilla, Fire Rodan, and Mothra. Sadly, the ride is no longer there, but a few books were released back in 1994 about the ride, featuring many photographs. Footage from the ride is featured on the Special Collection bonus DVDs from the Godzilla Perfect Collection DVD set from 2004. Strangely, on the DVD version, co-host Hello Kitty is edited out of Miki Saegusa's orientation segment.
