•July 2, 2015 • Comments Off on RTGBI: Perhaps 2 different routes
Pete Doctor had the idea of using the ‘Stream of Consciousness’ in the movie. In the great Disney tradition, I think having this amazing place extend in to the ride experience seems like a logical place to be curious about, perhaps as it’s own ride, even.
Maybe what starts off as s ride down the stream of conscience could accidentally wind up being a trip down the river of dreams. What a great time to be chased be a clown!
A simple boat ride/monster mouse coaster hybrid would do nicely, incorporating the same projection tech used in the Train Of Thought.

Ride Title: Return to Goofball Island
Reference: Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out
Ride Location: Pixar Place – Disney Hollywood Studios
Plot/Storyline: The characters ‘Anger’,’Fear’, and ‘Disgust’, complain they’ve never had the opportunity to discover any of the islands. Joy decides to take them there to get them there (via the Train of Thought) to stop the complaining. (So far, these aspects have been introduced as a pre-show).
Guest is offered the chance to come along. The train is pulling out, and you don’t want to miss it!
Along the peaceful ride, Joy starts to remember her time with Bing Bong, but the train comes to a sudden stop. It appears a Creative Block has landed on the tracks. The weight of the block bends the track straight down to the pit of forgotten memories.
Looks like this train isn’t going to make it to it’s destination! But maybe…just maybe…a little ‘song power’ might get them back to Head Quarters safely!
Ride Type: Dark Ride/Coaster hybrid
Elements used: Scenic Projection, Duel Projection (3D), Track Reversal, Forced Perspective (3D).
Unique Feature: Projection originates from the top of the passenger trains, giving the illusion of faster travel and/or misleading direction.
Closest technologies currently used on Everest, Dinosaurs, Tower of Terror and Space Mountain.
