From old Blue Sky Imagineering, there was a Circus Town planned for where (approx) Big Thunder is now,
with a Discoveryland, as well.

And part of Circus Town was a dark coaster ride called Mickey's Mad House. Not to be confused
with a Haunted Swing ride, this was basically going to be a (then) Mad Mouse coaster, totally enclosed,
and mainly in black & white for everything, including the sets, characters and Mickey himself!

I was really hoping that maybe, just maybe, they might have considered this attraction, for one of those
big tents over at the Magic Kingdom's Expansion in WDW. I think it would have fit perfectly into one
of the tents. But it would be a family thrill ride, not for the very small ones.

There's still hope for this to be built! :wink:

MMH was to be the show building between Baxter's hands.

Looking the other way, MMH is behind and to the left of an elevated Dumbo. Casey Junior was to get a
newly located station, as would the main railroad that goes around the park. Toontown now has that station.

The dragon coaster at Dinseyworld, which I have forgotten the real name of. It was planned to be in Animal Kingdom and was going to be, judging by the artwork, a B&M invert.
Still confused about why vekomas headquarters hasn't been burnt down by an angry mob of enthusiasts

^ I have an art rendering of that coaster, here.
I think we'd be sitting in 'cauldrons' the bats are carrying, lol.
I agree, that's another one, in fact that whole Land I wish they'd done.
I know there's a few more artists' concepts around, just not sure where.

I would have to say the Jurassic Park Safari at Universal Studio's Hollywood. It was eventually scrapped for the River Adventure after it was deemed to difficult to re-create the T-Rex chase. Too bad cause it would have been awesome.

The second was the dueling raptor woodie's plan at IOA. This could be an idea that resurface's in the future.

I have a fondness for the old Western Rivers Expedition, which was going to be Frontierland's version of Pirates of the Caribbean.

Then again, Big Thunder arose from all this work, too--and that works for me.

The original concept for Space Mountain (or Discovery Mountain as it was called) at DLP which was a massive complex that included Nautilus and a 1st-gen Intamin drop tower.

^ A 1st generation Intamin drop tower like that would have been amazing.
