  • Babylon 5 Theme Ride ?

    We've all heard of various different movies like Back to the Future, Terminator, Star Trek, etc. being turned into theme rides. If given the chance, what do you think would be the ultimate Babylon 5 Theme Ride?
    Personally I would like to be in the simulator of a Star Furry, launching from the station, engaging in a battle with some Shadow vessels or Raider ships and then returning to the station. Of course there would have to be a few jumps into Hyperspace through the jumpgates on this particular ride.

    Probably like Star Tours at WDW or at ST:The Experience (sniff). Hop in a shuttle Go through a jump gate, come out the wrong one, end up in a battle between a) Narn and Centauri b) Vorlons and Shadows c) Earth Alliance vs. Minbari. Avoid several ships / blasts with several banking turns. Get engines back online / Make your way back to the jump gate. Open up jump gate and leave. Exit shuttle and walk out into the Zocalo to purchase B5 paraphenalia. Also your choice of pictures either in front of the C in C window, or on the bridge of a White Star.

    I would love to be on that ride! Jovian sunspots are on me at Earhart's.

    What a wonderful world you live in. -
    Yeah, well, the rent is cheap, the pay is decent and I get to make my own hours.

      I'd love sort of a B5 history ride: Start off by taking off from Earth and finding myself at the Battle of the line, then jumping through a jump point at arriving at the B5 station as it is being constructed. Circling the station and watching it's progress as it's being build during one revolution (going around it).
      From there, jumping into hyperspace through the gate and finding myself among the huge fleet heading towards the showdown battle between the interstellar fleet and the Shadows and the Vorlons. Being at the battle.
      Jumping back and being back above Earth, fighting the battle to destroy the satellites before they can scorch Earth.
      Jumping again and then drifting through space, just like the White Star with Sheridan in SIL and the ride ends with a glaring light.

      I will be there for sure
      It's easy to find something worth dying for. Do you have something worth living for?

        How bout this then.
        Like the idea of a History ride - but go back a little further.

        Entering the ride we leave the B5 docking bay and fly outwards and enter a Jumpgate - First Flash.

        You begin the ride by going into the early ages of mankind, flying down over earth with a primitive set up - but the influence of the vorlons on human kind being established - maybe a beings of light influenced lightshow with Vorlon Ships in view.

        Then follow mankinds first forays into Flight and unlimately into the stars - always with a kind of menacing presence (shadows) in the background.

        Then - first contact with the Minbari - and oh hell. The battle ensues and we end up heading away through the jumppoints after Dukhats death.

        Then its onwards to the Battle of the line. We are in one of the starfuries which are waiting for the minbari to come out of hyperspace - and then all of a sudden - boom - they are there and we are flying through a mass of exploding starfuries trying to get to the one massive minbari cruiser which is sitting away from the main battle.

        When we eventually fly through the debris and are heading straight for the cruiser we flash forward to the Arrival at Io of Earthforce One. We fly past as it explodes and then flash forward again - but this time to the Attack on the Narn Base by the Shadows.

        We fly through the Mayhem and flash forward to the Narn attack on the Centauri outpost where they are met by the shadows - flying through all this carnage we arrive at the collapsing jumpgates and flash forward again to a peaceful flyby - past Babylon 5 itself.

        Then we are through the jumpgate and into the battle between the League of non-aligned worlds and the Shadow Forces. Again flying through the carnage until the Shadow ships make their escape.

        We then face off against a Vorlon Planet Killer and accompanying ships until we flash forward again to a flypast while a Shadow Planet Killer is in action. We proceed to fly through this dodging the missiles raining down on the planet below.

        Flash forward time again to the end of the second age at Coriana 6 with a massive battle going on between the Vorlons, Shadows & First Ones.

        After the final Flash forward we return to the relative comfort of B5 begin docking procedures.

        End of ride - Right now wheres my photo at the battle of the line and my cuddly Sheridan Bear?
