I came up with a great idea for a ride film, based on the 1969 classic, Bullitt
Bullitt: the Ride
Exterior Change: Repaint the outside of the theater to look like a soundstage and paint "Soundstage No. 7" in the front (sound familiar). Remove the remaining Edwards Air Force Base theming and place some movie studio theming.
Queue: Place some TVs in the queue and have them play clips from certain Steve McQueen movies (i.e. Papillon, Towering Inferno). Install fake movie posters near the preshow entry doors.
Preshow: Riders play the role of tourists who take part in the studio tour. In the preshow, we see that a remake of Bullitt is shooting at the moment. We also see that the main star is being a wuss about recreating the famous car chase. He tells the director that stunts like that aren't suitable for "a star as macho as him" and demands that a stunt driver be used. The director becomes desperate since he can't hire a stunt driver at the moment. He approches us and offers us the job as stunt drivers. Without giving us time to think it over, we are ushered out into the set and we are strapped into our cars.
Ride: Pretty much us recreating the famous chase from the original movie. Speeding through the streets of San Fransisco and the freeway.
Anything is better then Fly me to the Moon.
