"Big Thunder" centers on a brilliant, late 19th century New York doctor. He and his family are given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relocate to a frontier mining town run by a powerful, but mysterious tycoon but quickly realize that not everything in Big Thunder is as it seems.
Sounds interesting doesn't it.
It almost sounds like it could have a mysterious
LOST-type vibe. And, I'm sure they'll use the iconic peaks of Big Thunder Mountain that we've all come to know well from seeing them at the Disney parks.
The idea of turning a theme park ride into a movie has been done before. But the idea of turning a theme park ride into a weekly show is intriguing.
So, it gave us an idea for a contest.
We'd like you to pick ANY theme park or amusement park ride in existance and create a television pilot around it.
All we need are two or three sentances describing the plot and what the show would be like.
Ideally, you're picking a ride that isn't based at a Disney or Universal park... that's too easy.
But, if you were able to come up with a television show based around some obscure ride that never gets talked about... we'll be impressed!
For instance, how about a ride based on "Alpengeist" at Busch Gardens Williamsburg?
The show would take place at an old ski lodge in Colorado that has been shuttered for years. People stopped going there after a series of terrible accidents in the 70's. A family from California buys the place and intends to restore it to its former glory (while making a ton of money.) But, they soon discover that the hotel and the slopes surrounding it are haunted by a mysterious being that wants them all dead.
We'll select a few of the best storylines and send the writers X-Flight Prize Packs...which include T-Shirts, Water Bottles, Bags and more! (Thanks to Six Flags Great America for the cool stuff.)
