Put a round Up type ride in the middle of the circle vision and when time keeper starts time traveling you start spinning around and around..........A new E ride.........and a cheap ride to install... If someone don't know what a round up ride is... It's a fair type ride that was popular in the 80's early 90's that you where strapped to the side and spinned realy fast around in...

LOL! But that is the basic problem with TimeKeeper, in my opinion - it uses the screens all the way around the room, so people must stand to turn their heads to watch. So basically it means there is no where to sit! I only went on that ride once - back in 1997, and never again. I just remember standing there on my already sore feet, barely paying attention to the ride, and just wishing the doors would open and we could get to a bench! People kept trying to sit during the preshow, but the CM's would make big announcements that you MUST stand. When it was dark, everyone in the ride was trying to sit somewhere without being detected. What a misrable time for all!

TimeKeeper is so poorly designed, expecting people to stand in the preshow and the ride for a good length of time. It's no surprise that TimeKeeper was never a "big ticket" ride.

Somehow I don't think that ride would go over too well with the lunch crowd. lol

The basic Circle-Vision 360 design has remained the same since its inception over 40 years ago.

I think one reason for it's demise was it simply because it was not a sit down attraction.
We saw it once. And it was cute. But no show buster. And you stand and wait only to stand some more. No thanks.

what,s funny is.... Someone at the top of Disney attactions has read this post I made about the round up ride thing and thinks it's a great Idea... I just hope Eisner sends me a $2 million dollar check for coming up with the ride idea .... I would hate to get that lawyor like those guys did about the world wide sports complex..lol .... and here's a free idea to Eisner .... get the Gap company to sponser it and replace the time keeper robot with a Paul praiser robot...... lol
