Last night a thread discussing ideas for a Nintendo Theme Park became an online Campaign to get idea to Nintendo
We Plan to
>Make OC Concept Art
>Flood Nintendo's Twitter
First we need to plan a date which will happen at a later time.
Imagine walking around a Castle Town version of Main Street where the Happy Mask Salesman run a shop that sells Zelda Merchandise or an F-Zero Rollercoaster
Hasn't this happened before and Nintendo's official response was(to paraphrase) "We like the idea, but if we're going to do that, we're not just going to make it Disneyworld with Nintendo"
It's like I'm 12 again and me and my cousin are writing OC Runescape shit to send to Jagex.
It's a neat idea but ultimately would probably be lost on the upper execs, and even then [COUNTRY YOU DON'T LIVE IN] exclusive.
>On a monorail to the main entrance from the parking area
>It goes through a tunnel
>Mario's voice comes on through the loudspeaker
>"Welcome to Nintendo Land! Enjoy your stay! Wahoo!"
>This starts playing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uTnujailcZM
>Right at the end of the song you exit the tunnel and see the entirety of the park from above
>This starts playing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GF3JYa0ql4&t=20s
Guys, are you sure this will work?
I mean, I love nintendo and I promote the creation of OCs on /v/. But this thing is really insane. What makes you sure they'll listen?
Wouldn't it be better to make something more easy, like making a birthday card for Sakurai? His birthday is near.
this nigga gets it.
>golden satues in the center of all the past successors of nintendo and miyamoto all holding hands with there creations
This is a really neat idea, but it just won't work. Even if you guys are doing this just to demonstrate the interest for a theme park, what will happen next? Nothing.
I'm sorry, but this is a wasted effort.
Miyamoto has already hinted at wanting to make one. Maybe if we get some interest going, it'll inspire him to make some ideas. And then it could come sooner than later. This campaign could get him excited. It's worth a try.
Stop trying to make Nintendo happen.
Ever since Iwata went on the warpath nothing has been the same.
First there was those planes. And the evidence clearly points to those at the top.
And now Reggie's in Sudan with his closest conjurers.
At this point, I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Anyone involved in this is delusional.
There's a better chance of Nintendo adding Sonichu to Smash.
Holy shit, this is awesome. Can't wait to screencap this and post it in any nintendo thread.
shes covering her crotch you pervert
Paintball Tag, but with Ink.
Ideas from previous threads
1) Metroid Laser Tag, Galactic Federation vs Space Pirates. 2 Lines, one for each team, halves queue time. 2 fields for even faster queue times and replayability.
2) Mario Kart Racing. Simple and obligatory as well as F-zero racing. This one differs because the Karts can bump into each other safely, and it is encouraged to win.
3) Paper Mario Badge shop: badges, pins, stickers of both badges, items and PM IP characters.
4) Princess boutique shop: Princess couture
5) A Water Park called Delfino Island. more ellaboration on this later
6) Many nintendo characters throughout the theme park. Whacka is one of them. He's hard to pin down. If you bump him with the purchasable Pm rubber hammers from the PM shop, you get a free treat everytime. Whacka disappears for two hours afterwards.
7) Animal Crossing Couture shop: Unique shop. You can craft and print your own IRL T-shirts (from both pre-made options and customize your unique own) Then you can get a code to also get your IRL T-shirt for your Animal Crossing Game, along with nifty things like these. Exclusive and Only do-able in Nintendo Land, you cannot do this feature anywhere else.
8) Pokemon Stadium: A lounge where players are encouraged to bring their 3DSes so they can fight other people. Holographic fights a la pokemon stadium linking their 3DSes for others to watch. Many restaurants and other ammenities located around the stadium.
nah. actually good looking cosplaying base-line job employees? Nope. non-gooks for a japanese theme park? that's the ONLY way it could work, but it would be japan only.
you dont know how a vagina is angled do you
>Ideas are creative, too
Apparently not yours.
sorry forgot to type (cont)
Pikmin forest was stated in the thread, which plays like a big park for people to wonder, with sliders, water fountains, etc a la universal's "honey, I shrank the kids", but much larger, and with hidden shops inside the park. Ideas of Holographic (a la miku) pikmin and enemies was thrown out, but discarded due to high costs and being near water, but as a Park it's a good idea
animal crossing was also featured as a lounge/park/restaurant and relax segment, as well with having a mii-park for kids where they can excavate fossils among other things, which would also give them codes for their 3DS game for unique items for AC.
-Mario kart with real karts, duh!
-Luigi's Mansion scary house.
-F-Zero virual reality.
-Punch Out punching machines.
-Super Mario obstacle course similar to Wipe out/Takeshi's Castle.
-Donkey Kong cart rollercoaster.
Okay you faggots, I think it's time I explained something to you about Nintendo and Japan in general.
Nintendo would never open an amusement park because that would compete with SEGAWorld, which is owned by SEGA, which is owned by Sammy. They don't have a psuedo monopoly on arcades over there because of good business practices. Sammy has interests in pachinko, and are funded and watched over by the Yakuza.
Iwata is smart enough to know not to fuck with the Yakuza
This is an awful idea. Think about how much of an overpriced, grueling, soul-sucking experience Disney World is. Now replace the smell of spaghettios with the smell of bad dragon cum lube. That's Nintendoland.
I used to read Tips & Tricks all the time back during the GCN/GBA era, and of course that was one of the main articles in their import stuff section; looked sick as fuck with the Rayquaza-coaster, Pokeball Ferris Wheel, and Suicune boat ride.
Come to think of it, all the shit in the import section looked good every issue. There was the Mario-themed GCN controllers, the Ga-Ko and Kerotan MGS3 merch, the RE4 fashion line, it made me pissed that Japan always got more than us for vidya crap and Tips & Tricks became a monthly cheat code book with an occasional article on the newest Xbox 360 release.
Their column on The Daibijin gave me a giantess fetish.
We've already been over what Iwata does to those who cross him.
Why do you think Reggie's run off to Sudan?
There is no chance that the Yakuza are a threat to Iwata's power.
wow....you guys sure hate
Then make the whole thing in Orlando.
>go to nintendoland, decide to ride donkey kong's minecart madness first, a roller coaster
>lines fairly short, employees are handing out free bananas
>get into minecart, the ride starts
>having a lot of fun
>suddenly a cart comes toward me from the opposite direction with an employee dressed as a kremling
>we collide, both flying out of our karts and into the star fox petting zoo below
>MFW I have an MBA specialized in Hospitality Management
>MFW this would be a Dream Park for me to run
The ride ideas/park design are fun. Actually trying to get Nintendo to do this is fucking stupid and will not end well
because they'll probably listen, and all of your worst nightmares will come true
>You are now realizing Iwata is the Yakuza
>Gunpei Yokoi dying in that car crash after the Virtual Boy suddenly makes sense now
All the ideas you posted were awful.
Awful ideas are commensurate with lack of talent.
Lack of talent also means lack of intelligence.
>MFW again when knowing everything about Nintendo games and making sure to add the spirit of the games to the theme park, rides, restaurants
they are definitely not going to do this anytime soon but i think eventually it could be possible. first park would definitely be in Japan first and if it was a success they'd move on to U.S.
as a huge Disney parks fan i would be way into this. i must have plotted out the layout and attractions so many times over since i was a little kid.
Fix #1: Call it Yoshi's Island, not Watersport.
Fix #2, Yoshi's Island would be baller if it was bigger, and more than just a bland boat ride. people rent a canoe or boat and explore the different islands in the archipellago with different hidden shops and attractions. Yoshi's Island would be better as a Segment , just like "Mushroom Kingdom" is like "Magic Kingdom".
Hidden shops idea revolve around having hidden shops throghout the park which not only sell cool official products, but also in-game items only available via hidden shops exclusive to Nintendo Land
the link between Nintendo Land and Nintendo games is imperative to give nintendo Land the unique competitive advantage.
It also goes without saying than every single Kingdom/Segment should have Video game Shops with physical copies, preferably rare editions only available in nintendo land (different cover, figmas, etc) along with the usual Nintendo games
It's okay, Beulah.
You'll find someone to honor you.
If your dream park is a doomed financial and logistical nightmare in an industry that is tightly controlled, regulated, and fueled by a single company-- then go ahead and flaunt that worthless piece of paper you call a degree and join in on this wonderful aspie wankfest.
Oh, I also forgot
>MBA in hospitality management
Don't you have meals or hula nights to coordinate at the nursing home you work for?
As someone who is obsessed with theme parks, it's gonna take a lot more than petitions and internet spam to get a Nintendo theme park made, especially them of all companies. It takes a LOT of planning and consideration to make rides and theme parks, you can't just shit one out unless you want to be trashy like Your Local Amusement Park With Pre-Ordered Ready to Run Cheapo Rides (and a guaranteed boomerang coaster for the 80,000th time!!).
Nintendo also has such a high standard toward how their products are treated (probably because of the Super Mario Bros movie) that a theme park of all things would be held to a ridiculously high, probably Disney tier standard.
Heck, the most likely outcome if they did consider a Nintendo theme park would be Nintendo just saving time and making a deal with Disney to have a section in one of their own theme parks (like how PIXAR has stuff like Toy Story Land and Cars Land), considering Nintendo and Disney have tangoed before about a lot of things (Nintendo trusted Disney enough to let Bowser be in Wreck-it Ralph).
But either way, have fun waiting 8 horrible years for the rides to be made after they're announced. That's the tradition with high budget rides these days.
I got an idea:
Kid Icarus roller-coaster, right? Make it like the Rock' n' Roller Coaster, but less Aerosmith, more Lightning Battle. Thing's a big indoor roller coaster like the RnRC and Space Mountain, going pretty fast through Skyworld, Poseidon's Ocean, Viridi's Forest, Hades' Underworld, and the Cosmic Ocean, with Space Pirate Ship and everything, all with Palutena and Pit narrating stuff, other Gods chiming in through the ride; call it "Lady Palutena's Wild Ride".
They could get the guys who animated the Revolting Dinner shorts and Smash trailer to animate the health and safety video.
Hospitality Management is an elite version of Business and administration, average (real job, not bellboy or concierge or the baseline shit) earning more than a million per year as a Manager alone.
Depends on the hotel, but five stars, fine dining restaurants, theme parks, and cruise managers earn that amount
Normal hotels can go for half, but either way it is a high paying job.
Just letting you know. It's also immune to economical crisis, since demand doesn't lower elastically (people still eat out and have vacations).
fun fact: organizaing banquests as a Food and Beverage Manager is usually a 900k a year job in five-star hotels.
Not him, but letting you know since my degree is plain Business. Also, sports management is another branch and earns less, but almost as much.
>discussing ideas for a Nintendo Theme Park
Hey thats pretty neat. I love theme parks.
>became an online Campaign to get idea to Nintendo
Nigga what the fuck are you smoking.
Brainstorming about cool things are one thing but this is getting out of hand.
Not gonna lie Real life nintendo land would be baller as fuck but that shit is never gonna happen no matter how much you push.
The best part is that the degree is very easy, and you don't really do much either. It's like playing the Sims IRL.
I get paid 250 per hour to tell people to do things. And I don't have any promotions yet because I started a few months ago. I love my job.
Thank you for reading to me the exaggerated bullet points about your degree you found on your colleges website. I'm sure everyone in the churned out degree path that is hospitality management goes on to work for luxury spas and hotels to make $900k a year--just like all business management students go on to work for fortune 500 companies and Communication students go on to write for the New York Times.
I'm sorry for taking valuable time away from whatever menial sub $30k job it is you are currently avoiding by posting about theme parks that will never exist on the internet.
well to be fair one of Disney's biggest attractions is based on Song of the South, a less well-known Disney film that Disney themselves actually wants to keep people oblivious to,.
which does it make it confusing how they themed such a huge ride after it actually, i have always wondered why they did that.
That's actually fucking brilliant. Make the whole park into a game to separate it from Disney or whatever. Of course it'd be a logistical nightmare but still. Really neat idea.
Any MBA, no matter the specialization, is a good-job voucher for good payment.
An MBA with a specialization is even better than a plain one.
MBAs from private colleges are as easy as private undergrad, albeit more strict with deadlines, but that's it.
literally no reason not to get your MBA if you can pay for it.
with that alone you secure a high-payment job ( or secure the ability to be a candidate for it)
>I get paid $10 an hour to slack off and lie to people on the internet
Fixed that for you
this is some of the most aggressive autism i've seen in a long time
I don't know, just a park with [nintendo game x] rollercoaster and [nintendo game y] ballpit doesn't sound that cool.
And anything that could be cool would cost way too much.
But they could push merchandise in those shops, and arcades i guess? doesn't really seem like nintendos thing. they have their pokemon shops already
The boat ride from Mother 3.
That's literally the only thing that can work out for Earthbound. Give it credit, it's easier to work with than Fire Emblem.
Unless you make like a Pegasus/Wyvern Dumbo ride or something.
>The idea for Splash Mountain was originally conceived in the summer of 1983 by Imagineer Tony Baxter while stuck in rush hour traffic on his way to work. He wanted to attract guests to the often-empty Bear Country land and make use of the Audio-Animatronics from America Sings, which were also receiving poor attendance. It was Dick Nunis who insisted that the Imagineers create a log flume for Disneyland, but the Imagineers were initially unenthusiastic about it, insisting that log flumes were too ordinary a theme park attraction to include in a park like Disneyland. While trying to solve the problems of including a log flume, bringing people into Bear Country and reusing the America Sings characters, Baxter then thought of Song of the South.
>Baxter and his team developed the concept of Zip-a-Dee River Run, which would incorporate scenes from Song of the South. The name was later changed to Splash Mountain after then-CEO Michael Eisner's mostly-ignored suggestion that the attraction be used to help market the film Splash. The characters from America Sings were used in many scenes, though all of the main characters were specifically designed for Splash Mountain.
Reposting park restaurant ideas from alst thread:
>Themed after Brewster's café in Animal Crossing.
>Coffee and pastrey joint. With Animal Crossing Meet n' Greet-ers roaming around.
>You can listent to K.K. Slider (maybe an animatronic?) on Saturday nights.
-Kirby's Dreamland Gourmet:
>Kirby-themed pastrey shop.
>Lots of cakes, ice creams and other desserts.
>Themed after Fire Emblem's arenas.
>One of the bigger but fancier restaurants of the park.
>You have orchestal bands or swordfights happening at the cenetr while you eat.
>Star Fox-themed restaurant. Possibly shaped on the outsid elike the Great Fox.
>The roof are actual tv screens.
>As you eat you get to watch a light show on the roof followed by a spaceship fight on the screens.
Brainstorming this shit is fun.
even better: To increase replayability (retention) encourage the park-goers (players) to try and win in the multiplayer park attractions, such as Mario Kart or Metroid Laser Tag
by winning, they could get a prize code to apply for your game related to the attraction, unique and only available at Nintendo Land. This allows players to re-queue the same game until they get first place or they win. And since the prize is Digital, it has absolutely no charge or cost to apply.
I feel like I'm on fucking GameFAQs right now.
As if I cared if you believed me. Stay middle class, pleb.
>You can buy special edition Amiibos with different effects on the games.
yes i'm aware of the development process of the ride but i have never understood why Disney Park execs allowed Baxter and his team to go ahead with the Song of the South theme since Disney seems to be afraid of that property due to racial insensitivity charges. i know that most of the elements those charges were directed to in the film (tar baby and live-action sequences) were removed in the attraction but i still always just thought it was odd they would embrace that property for a ride that is/was going to be so huge and long-lasting.
Stopped reading right there. Mostly because you are treating a fucking piece of paper like it bestows magical qualifications and status to people.
An MBA doesn't entitle anyone to shit and definitely doesn't guarantee you a job. What does get you a good job is networking with professionals in your field-- an MBA is for the person who's already accomplished this and can secure a decent job, but wants a little extra something to slap on a resume as a bargaining chip for higher starting pay and benefits.
Or for true academics who want to stay within the walls of academia, which I'd never wish upon my worst enemy these days.
>Just want to brainstorm a fictional park for fun.
>There are autists here that actually believe they can make it happen with a stupid petition.
I'm not who you orginially posted to. The degree I'm currently studying is Business. I'm just a student. I can tell you for a fact that 400k is the minimum, while 500k is the average.
you're not very smart either. You don't realize the universit yyou graduate from is as important, if anything more, than your GPA when they check you out. Private universities which are known for X department will have Companies trying to recruit Students of said department. My sister studies at ringling, for example, and she has told me Blizzard visits them always, because it is their to-go place to recruit interns and future employees. Same with other niche and high-demanding positions, in this case Hospitality.
Chen-sama, I have an idea. With F-Zero racing, considering magnetism is enough to stop one of those tower rides carrying a ton or two from falling so quickly, would it be remotely possible to create an F-Zero ride that uses magnetism to make some sort of bumper cart/cart racer ride that allows for loops? And offer special prizes for getting especially good times?
>Stopped reading right there. Mostly because you are treating a fucking piece of paper like it bestows magical qualifications and status to people.
how naive are you?
Don't have a degree? into the bin
Don't have a masters while other candidates have it stated in their resume? into the bin
It's explained in the passage, it was a good way to make use of animatronics for a ride that was shutting down.
Also, the Disney company never stopped embracing stuff like Zip a Dee Doo Dah and the Br'er characters. It's just the live action stuff and the tar baby that they avoid. Splash Mountain even appeared in the Kinect Disneyland game. Br'er Bear also has an oddly abundant amount of cameos for some reason, including Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
The executives and general advertising may want to forget about the Br'er Rabbit stories, but it's clear there's lots of people in the company that still love them and will sneak them into places.
Well I'm already going with the idea that LIKE Disneyland, this shit would drain everyone's wallet like a motherfucker.
One has to be realistic. For a aprk to work this way it has to be pretty expensive for the public. the rband is the one in charge to desgusie that afct.
>Game and Watch Arcade
>Entire Arcade is filled with Nintendo machines like Donkey Kong or Punch Out
>Giant Game and Watch games are littered throughout the room, on the floor, or on the walls
>On the outside of the Arcade is GAME AND WATCH in big letters that light up the same way their handheld counterparts do
I agree, we absolutely need to think about how to make Pokemon Snap: the Ride a reality. Maybe there would be multiple Zero-One machines that each hold about 2 people each, with the actual voice actor for Professor Oak giving some kind of quick set of instructions before the ride begins.
although I agree connections is an important factor ( and the reason shit people get jobs they don't deserve) having a Grad Degree is equal in weight when tossed into the balance.
yeah definitely as a side-attraction.
The best strategical outcome , if they ever made a park, is to make it in Orlando, just like Universal did (and the reason its profitable)
People visit Disney? might as well visit Nintendo Land
People visit Nintendo Land? might as well visit disney.
competition, the weakness, becomes an advantage
>nothing about super mario sunshine/pinna park
With the Toy Story Mania technology, a lot of the ride ideas here are within the realm of possibility
I think the Pikmin attraction would work better as a Jurassic Park sort of deal, with people riding in a jeep or a cart through a forest with Bulborbs and other enemies pop up.
That sentence read like a giant fucking wall of denial and grammatical errors as written by a person about to enter college into a dead-end major. Learn how to use a fucking comma for fucks sake.
Y-yeah. Maybe an interesting idea that would be especially fun but help conserve expenses would be something modeled after the Death Match track from F-Zero X, with the goal being to deal as much damage to opponents as you can and knock their health down, with their cart stopping on the track altogether after having their health all chipped away, thus littering the track with the downed racers. If there isn't a sole survivor by the end of the time limit, the one with the most health wins.
i apologize if it has been said already but cosplays throughout the park would be great, especially this guy
>you'll never buy a mask from him while eating pikmin colored/shaped ice cream
Nintendo having the means to do a park of that size and caliber and keep it so? Unlikely to the extreme.
IT's fun to brainstorm a perk that is "possible" (In the way of having the actual technology to pull it off like your example) but there are people here who are actually signing a petition for it, which is the msot retarded idea I ever heard and just gives baiters to keep ruining the fun of the guys who just wanna come up with silly rides.
We would do the same as Nintendo
We would sell signature books, whose purpose is for you to go and find the different nintendo characters cosplayed and ask for their signatures, and try and collect them all.
Hell, you could even encourage it by giving people who collect all signatures a special Coin for the 3DS or a digital prize unique to Nintendoland.
>clicking on a link and stating "cool, I'd like this" is a horrible idea!
of course it won't go anywhere, but it would be nice to show Nintendo there's demand for it. that's it. at best in a ridiculous low chance best scenario they open a restaurant in tokyo.
The Facebook page "Real Life Nintendoland" is up for this. Any artwork, ride ideas, and so on will probably be posted there from this thread.
Hopefully it'll get popular enough to where it can be updated with new things on a regular basis.
But a signature from a bunch of neckbeards ain't gonna make that happen.
I just want to have some fun in /v/ rather than a bunch of autists thinking they can change the world and soem bigger autists not having anything but call on said previous autism.
/vg/ was created for recurring threads on /v/, threads that would be restarted as soon as one hits bump-limits. This thread is exaclty why /vg/ was created
Autism has its merits if used correctly. When channeled through projects like this, or through people like Ulillilia, it can be an excellent source of creativity. The key is to not let autism approach its dark side by reveling in rehashing much like a sonic fan drawing OC characters. So long as we don't simply turn this into Disneyland with Nintendo characters, creativity should remain afloat, and our autism shall remain justified.
>not wanting a Captain Falcon cosplaying guide of a scripted tour through mute city as you ride the ride and he jumps out of the ride and fights people, as he falcon punches and shit
>not wanting periodic live shows like universal has with zero suit samus, hiring some acrobatic bimbo to cosplay as her as she fights pirates
>you can take pictures with ZSS official cosplayers
They could make a Nintendo Land app for the 3ds where they throw you quests like "take a picture with X" and you take the picture with your 3ds, and if you do you unlock stuff, just like with the Find Mii game, but actually giving you rewards
>>you can take pictures with ZSS official cosplayers
Sin and Punishment is owned as a franchise, Nintendo simply had Treasure's HELP with working on it, much in the same way they helped with Wario World. Also, don't forget Star Fox.
>5) A Water Park called Delfino Island. more ellaboration on this later
>pic related except designed to look like FLUDD as attraction
I think I may make some videos for this, but I'm not sure how. For example, I want to make some kind of fireworks over Peach's Castle video, with music playing, just to give people an idea of what it would be like.
I just have no idea how to do that.
If Nintendo were to make a theme park:
It would be in Japan.
It would be an indoor theme park inside a mall, like Namco's Namja Town or Sega's Joypolis.
The entrance would be ¥2000 yen, but each ride would cost a minimum of ¥5000 to ride.
It would be limited in space with only three major rides, absolutely no rollercoasters, a themed food court, and an arcade.
I live in Japan, and aside from Disney and Universal, all other theme parks are small as shit because there is no space for anything and land costs a fortune.
I'm also Mexican
I plan on making a survey for people to vote on each franchise and whether or not to keep it
How easy is it to get a qt japanese girl as a mexibro
If you want this go bigger , Op, you're goign to have tap into demonic powers and dwell inside Reddit for signatures, facebook and twitter group creations too.
PS: you might want to expand on the Petition Letter besides "Make a nintendo land"
Really easy. Go to a good club not in Roppongi, act normal, be charming and friendly, use some of that Latin charm, and you'll find someone for a one night stand.
Finding love? That's the hard part. Japanese girls don't want to marry foreigners that are not white.
Part 1 of the survey:
Part 2 of the survey:
I have chronically forgotten to include Steel Diver, but consider it on there as well. If there are other series you do not see on the lists, please write them in the thread.
I've come full circle to going back to loving theme parks. They're so fucking cool and I wish more companies did them outside of Disney and tacked on areas like Six Flags Mass and Universal
Would there also be a resort tied to the Park? Disney has all sorts of resorts on their grounds and I can totally see myself staying in an Animal Crossing themed resort with Mario Golf courses and Mario Tennis courts
>you will never go on Daisy Cruise Ship
>you will never go to Ilse Delfino for vacation
I want to die
Some franchises that are significantly smaller like Brain Age or Hotel Dusk might not be worth designing an entire ride over. Possibly a store or something. This is just to gauge interest.
>Glass screen where people can see in, into a big room
>The big room is designed like a platformer with retro graphics
>The 2D sprites are giant obstacles and those looking through the window can help the person get through the course
>Also ones where those looking have to stop them getting through the course and can use objects to stop them
>Like Takeshis Castle or Gmod run but Nintendo
>theme park has rides for popular franchises (Mario, Zelda, etc)
>shops and smaller stuff for less popular
>everyone only goes to the big named ones
>lesser known ones shop's get closed and never reopened
Just like their vidya!
if there's will, there's a way.
you don't understand consumerism behaviour
if its on sight and on the way, there are much higher chances of people consuming, unlike their vidya where they don't even have marketing.
the average consumer is a cow.
For a Luigi's Mansion ride you have to make a pretty big decision right at the start.
Would it be walking or riding? An attraction that has vehicles for guests to ride in can generally move a larger volume of guests than a walking ride can, but being able to explore on your own feet is closer to how the actual game plays.
Regardless of which way that decision goes, I think the ride should be similar to the Toy Story Astro-Blasters at Disney land, where you have a 'gun' to help hunt ghosts with you.
If it were a walking attraction you have the aforementioned volume problems in addition to having the problem of having to give a 'gun' to each guest that is durable enough to not break but also light enough for a variety of ages/body-types to be able to use.
ditch the blasters, making a walking, preferably open world, not a hallway, and let people get spooked.
you can also make an astro blaster version with a Ride, where the gun is on every seat like Men in Black's ride from Universal.
This is not a financially stable idea.
Theme parks cost a lot of money. Constant upkeep and maintenance. Lawsuits left and right. Not to mention the odds of Nintendo doing something like this OUTSIDE of japan would be literally 0%
Lawsuits aren't from IPs, they are from injuries, food poisoning, and the like.
If you invest for a theme park you don't invest big and internationally. For example, even disney only has 6 themeparks.
Merchandise is expensive as shit to provide, especially when you're talking about having to produce your own custom merchandise that isn't to be sold to other places to use as prizes (e.g. six flags)
You clearly haven't looked into this enough.
is this bait? you're speaking as if every theme park of all time is not profitable
do people really think it's going to happen? i highly doubt it
do you really think nintendo doesn't have enough money to do something like this?
>Nintendo releases a 3DS app for Real Life Nintendo Land
>Nintendo Releases an Achievement Score Tab for people to track their Achievements earned in Nintendo Land, breaking objective high scores, reaching objectives, etc, a la Blizzard's Achievement system but 3ds with 3ds' panels and what not as well
>Achievement unlockers gain digital prizes, making the entire park a game to beat, in theme of Nintendo and its relationship to the consumer being a player
>Those who fully unlock all achievement not only get cool unique digital things, but also get to have dinner with Satoru Iwata,
>MFW Iwata's job is to have dinner with people every weekend now.
Imagine, dinner with the CEO. It's like you beat the game IRL, and you're rewarded to meet Iwata.
Could they? Yeah sure.
Would it be a sound investment?
Theme parks can be profitable, but they are an extremely expensive venture with minimal profits. You'd essentially be paying for an extremely expensive advertisement.
Saying you can utilize what others have fucked up is easy, actually being able to on the other hand is different. Avoiding lawsuits is impossible, settling out of court and making sure it maintains a low profile is something you need to be damned sure you can do.

Terrible idea that will never happen
Aw, c'mon, anon, it's just laying down colored tiles and building around that. Except when you want them to be on bridges. Everything goes wrong when it comes to the bridges...
Have a big segment where people play table game IRL with themselves as board pieces. No mini games. Sessions shouldn't last long
bridges that close up and people fall into the water if they land on "?", etc.
Or even better, make it like mario party 9/10 where people are a team and they go on a Ride straightforward and do mini-games together.
I was thinking a live animal zoo that contained species that were inspiration for Pokemon, with educational plaques and such. Like a fennec fox exhibit with a plaque with factual information and a picture of Evee on it.
The pokemon are Digital and you see them with the Camera.
what they can do is turn the entire cart windows into the digital camera, so once you're inside it seems like outside is full of pokemon, and you take pictures with a camera controller.
Fuck, I want this now.
It would have to just be a ride though, as I doubt they'd have jet ski races at a theme park.
Would be cool if the theme park was like Smash Bros., though, with Wave Race at Isle Delfino like >>255481998 mentioned.
>onett arcade with nintendo games

Shop that sells cool as fuck gadgets, like a boxing glove attached to a crane that extends to punch people, dinosaurs that grow bigg if you add water, but in this case it would be mother figures.
Stink bombs, maybe minor fireworks, and so on
would be a small shop.
shit IP. irrelevant. let it die.
or you can have a big Mcdonalds-like ball-pool and the aim is to climb to the top of the "mountain" aka the game, and you climb around ropes and shit just like when you were a kid in those mcdonald labyrinths, with "enemies" which are bouncy walls, all while the floor is slippery since its supposed to be an ice mountain.
I guess I'm the only one who likes zoos.
I guess a museum full of exhibits related to Nintendo's history as a company would be out of the question too? Like that Game Boy from the Gulf War that's still functioning and playing cards from the 1800s.
Well, lets put it this way. While its a cool idea, people are going to a theme park to have fun, not to learn things
Besides, the Desert Storm Game Boy is at the Nintendo store in NYC
We create some sort of rock climbing wall that's extremely high and consists of you trying to jump and grab the pterodactyl's feet at the top to win a special prize. It will move from side to side at the top using some kinda metal bar or something helping it do so too. Also many of the grips are frosted and icy for extra challenge.
>what is Epcot
I wouldn't mind a little museum exhibiting nintendo's history, but that should probably go in the Hotel Resort Area as a park near the Hotel Area, and that's about it, or in a hallway while entering a park, but not as an attraction.
I didn't mean a jump as high as the Ice Climbers themselves you fool. And the rope would still be on you at the top anyway, so it's not worse than a normal rock climbing wall.
Also, adding onto my original suggestions, I'd like something like small holes in the wall that occasionally shoot out chilly air at you to try and distract you/blow you off if you're not being too careful. There'd probably be some other way to exploit things like the fruits you could collect in the bonus stage, too. For example, making all the grips near the top be vegetables, with you getting a special bonus if you manage to 'collect them,' as in, putting your weight on them enough to activate some kind of weight sensor that deactivates the lights making the fruit colored to begin with to make it 'disappear' and become a normal grip so you can make your way up using it. And if you get all the vegetables and grab the pterodactyl's feet without falling, you get a prize. And it could be wide enough to have about 3 difficulties of walls, each with their own unique vegatable to collect. Easiest is eggplant, medium is cucumber, hardest is pumpkin. The hardest difficulty will have conveyor-belt grips.
I was such a little autist that when one of my teachers as a kid was asking our class what kinds of transportation there are, I said 'pipes' and then said they were building them.

Think of the fucking money /v/
Also, I'm changing my mind about the pumpkins being the vegetable for the hardest difficulty, they'd be way too big and thus possibly much easier to grip, even if they're not as much like a handle as the other two. I'd say either potatoes or mushrooms instead.
Additionally, there could be certain ledges on which people in polar bear costumes could be, and try to throw snowballs at you to stop you from successfully climbing up, though you can be allowed to throw snow back at him if you get to it in order to make him retreat.
I think that things like a Mario golf course (including something similar to Mario's Star from Mario Golf 64), along with other things like Mario Tennis, Wave Race, and Excitebike could be part of a Nintendo Sports Resort near the park. However, keep in mind, Nintendo doesn't want the park to just be Disneyland with a Nintendo skin, and we shouldn't want it either, so it's best not to have Peach's castle just be a variation of Cinderella's castle. There's gotta be something more unique that can be done with it.
Sure, make a little shitty online petition begging Nintendo to spend millions, if not billions of dollars on a theme park so you sperg out with your favorite Nintendo waifus in costumes. Good luck.
For the Ice Climbers? No I like your idea a lot after it was tweaked a bit.
As far as the park itself, I think a Plessie flume ride is a must.
>Virtual reality pokemon stadium

>get BP after victories that can be used at the gift shop to buy merch like clothes, plushies, or even downloadable pokemon (including event pokemon no longer attainable)
can be included with the Pokemon snap ride that someone mentioned
God /v/ we have to fucking make this happen
so we have multiple stations that can also link up for double battles and triple battles, it will be a big place, I guess we can just call it the battle factory then and make it look like the one from the battle frontier.
>super mario sunshine water park
>get the sunshine backpack that has water that can be refilled after you run out
>run around and try and water fight with other people
idk, someone can take the reigns with this one I didn't play sunshine.
have the maintenance guy have this hat but whit a toad hat skin
There all all these plastic eggs floating in the water and there are slingshots that the riders aim at all these moving targets.
And the end has a giant baby bowser that you have to defeat.
goddamnit, I just finished fapping.
It would also ruin the potential of the park.
But seriously though, unless you're just fucking with me here, you seriously consider BUYING DISNEYLAND to be less expensive than building a park from scratch?
Every day at noon there could be a thing where a guy in a Bowser costume comes towing a woman in a Peach outfit away in some sort of car-tank, only to be stopped by Mario and Luigi. Bowser standson top of the car-tank
Then they pick out a guy from people watching to help them. press a button that causes Bowser to fall into the car-tank onto a foam mat.
The audience helper is rewarded with a kiss.
Once a week, they reverse roles, with Mario being kidnapped and Peach and a woman from the audience helping.
Oh my fucking god guys
You're not going to fucking convince Nintendo to spend millions and millions, hell, maybe even fucking billions into making a theme park by flooding fucking miiverse and twitter
Why have you guys gotten so fucking retarded lately? Ever since fucking E3 you guys have been saying and doing the dumbest fucking things.
what kind of attractions would Animal Crossing have?
Maybe some kind of petting zoo or some Nook shop that sells animal crossing plushies?
Don't forget to add NUMEROUS streetpass locations
Punch Out should have a sockem-boppers styled arena where two players use strapped on, inflatable fists to try to push eachother out of the ring. Safety helmets would be given to prevent harm, but otherwise it is basically American Gladiators without the giant Q-tips.
There is also another potential attraction: 'Topple King Hippo', in which children who meet the height requirement (You must be THIS SMALL to compete, so says Lil Mac) are divided into teams and try to push a large king hippo mascot in a fatsuit. While King Hippo himself will not attack the kids, the arena will be on a large, circular platform that tilts in order to make children slide off and onto the safety mats before. The object of the game is to get King Hippo to fall before your team does. Winners who beat the time limit get King Hippo's crown for their Miis. A variation of this could be done with Bowser instead.
Mario Kart would be all about kart racing, in which it is encouraged to be aggressive and bump into other cars. When you do, it slows down their kart, which allows you to get ahead of them. There are three different karts available: Balanced, High Top Speed, and High Acceleration. Balanced is balanced, High Top Speed karts have a higher overall speed, but are more vulnerable to bumps, and High Acceleration karts are able to recover from bumps faster and have better handling.
F-Zero would be a virtual reality equivalent to Mario Kart: Using a modified version of the AX game (Or a new version entirely), up to twenty players are strapped into detailed cockpits to race against their opponents. As an added bonus, if the game is new, up to twenty more players can join the game via a 3DS.
Animal Crossing would be Nintendo's resort that is targeted to families on a budget. The resort would have a large mascot gathering of many of the villagers. Along with shops, home cooking-themed restaurants, and a coffee bar. Rooms would have different themes, and you can choose among them based on what is available.
It would be a comfy as fuck place for kids to explore and parents to relax. Folk, jazz, and blues bands would be invited to do concerts there every saturday night.
Nook's Cranny would be the hotel's gift shop, and the bus that goes from the hotel to the park would drop people off at Sable and Mable's tailor shop, where one can design their own T-Shirts, and import (or export) their own designs from the 3DS game.
