This episode was pretty fun because we finally get to pitch our ride concepts that we talked about creating back in Ep8: Rides Never Built. Before getting to the brief ride descriptions, here are the videos of the bend tests that we spoke about in this episode. Here is the Consumer Reports video that Javier was talking about:
The two videos that I was talking about by Unbox Therapy:
Here’s the Note 3 response video:
Please keep in mind that we are in no way bashing the iPhone but we wanted to share the videos for your own observations. As of this writing we know that less than 10 cases have actually been reported to Apple but it’s still a possibility and we liked the humor involved with this. 🙂
Our Ride Concepts
Here are the brief descriptions of each pitch from the podcast along with what time in the podcast you can hear each idea start.
Mario (21:53): Imagine soarin’, tumblin’ and free-wheelin’ through an endless diamond sky. Using 3D technology and giant screens in a dome, you enter a pod that simulates a magic carpet as you see, smell, and hear the sounds of the world.
Javier (33:43): Imagine entering the boardwalk at California Adventure but you are now a toy and you’ve entered Andy’s room. Everything towers over you. A 10 foot tall Buzz and 12 foot tall Woody welcome you to the family or Andy’s imagination. Ready for a fast-paced tour of Andy’s room? “Beep beep!” RC Car opens his door and you’re ride through Andy’s room is about to begin. California Screaming has now been transformed into a Hot Wheels race track with visuals that depict Andy’s room.
Heyzen (42:44): The year is 2105 A.D. Imagine a world where you’ve been instructed to vacate the planet aboard the Axiom. Surrounding you are many Wall-E units picking up trash and compressing it while you get your items ready and hear commercials for the Buy and Large. As you climb into your floating chairs along the old People Mover track that will take you to the Axiom (formerly Innoventions) you get a sense that maybe you shouldn’t be going on this “5-year” trip.
