Cartoons That Should Be Theme Park Rides - The Jetsons

Over the years, theme park designers have come up with some great attractions based on our most beloved cartoons.

The Walt Disney Company, of course, has made a mint developing rides based upon their animated films.

But, we also have attractions based upon Scooby Doo, Shrek, and in a few months, The Simpsons.

We're starting a new series on the blog about Cartoons That Should Be Theme Park Rides.

First up, is the Hanna-Barbara classic - The Jetsons.

You could have a lot of fun with this attraction, especially if you based a dark ride upon the flying cars that we saw in the show's famous opening sequence.

An attraction like this would have a lot of opportunity for excellent special effects since the cartoon is set in the future. You could also come up an interesting storyline based upon the characters.

I guess the only problem is that anyone born after 1980 probably doesn't know this cartoon.  Most likely, a park would never green light an attraction that doesn't have a high Q-Rating.

We'll probably have to wait for some movie studio to make a "live action" version of  "The Jetsons" before an idea like this would even be considered.

But if any casting directors are reading this... my vote is for Scarlett Johanson to play Judy Jetson.

Talk about this in the CoasterRadio.com forums.
