Today, my brother came to me and said, “I have an idea that is going to make me totally rich.”
He suggested an FMA theme park. The rides would include a drop of fear esque one he calls “The Portal of Truth.”
“So you start at ground level and then what is beneath you is the eye. And once the ride starts, the eye lights up and the floor opens. And you drop. And as you drop, all around you are projectors and screens showing you the Truth. It’s a great idea.”
Then there would be a ride not unlike the Spiderman ride at Islands of Adventure where you’d help Ed save the day from the homunculi. So you’d be wearing 3D glasses, in a simulator. (”Ed will jump on your cart and kind of whine, ‘AW, CRAP! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? This is dangerous!’”)
Another of his ideas for this simulator included Colonel Mustang showing up to help. (”Mustang will come in like ‘Need a hand, Fullmetal?’ and Ed would say, ‘Took you long enough, Colonel!’ And then Mustang will snap his fingers. That’s when we get the fire effect. Like on Spiderman.”)
Additionally, he thought up a ride similar to the Haunted Mansion at Disney World called “Pride’s Playhouse.” (”And outside there will be a playground for the kids. Slides made out of shadows.”)
And a ride modeled after the Men in Black ride at Universal (a ride where you’re in a moving cart that takes you through a city where you shoot aliens for points). His idea is that you go on a mission with Hawkeye to shoot the zombie soldiers from the end of Brotherhood, but once it’s clear they cannot be killed with guns, Riza will shout, “WE CAN’T KILL THEM WE HAVE TO RUN!” and the ride will go crazy. Idk. Just go with it, I guess.
And I really don’t know what else to say. He was so stoked about this when he was telling me. And it’s an amusing concept if nothing else? XD
