It'll be like the theme park from Godzilla vs Gigan except the flying Ghidorah model circling the big attraction is actually just a flying Ghidorah model.

Mine is the Matterhorn, but instead of going into a mountain you just go into Godzilla's mouth and have an adventure in his digestive tract.

Is a zipline good enough?

Thereís decent pacific rim ride out there. With a little more production value and more thrills it could be super dope if they ever bring it to America

The Universal Studios Kong ride is pretty solid. It's one of those lame 3D projection one, but as far as those go it's top-tier. Best queue I've ever been in. Not a bad way at all to kill some time before Halloween Horror Nights if you ask me.

e: I have memories of the 90s ride burned into my brain. Seeing that massive puppet as a young kid was an incredible, terrifying image. Goddamn that's good stuff:

Thereís a new-ish Kong ride at Universal Orlando that I havenít ridden, but my sister said it wasnít worth the wait at all. However, she despises monkeys and apes so her judgement is suspect.

I havenít watched this video either, but since itís a Universal ride made after 2010 my guess is that itís just 70% projected cg screen poo poo and not much else.

From the video there are actually way more animatronics than I would have expected, including a giant Kong head at the end. Nothing on par with the older ride where he picks up the tram youíre on, though.

If they made a massive loving rollercoaster which went round a full sized statue of Godzilla that would be the tits. Probably too expensive for any park to attempt though, they got that full sized Godzilla with the zipline but he's kind of lying on the floor so it doesn't have the same impact.

If you kept it to the 50 metre tall Godzilla it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Iím massively curious on what the next Toho live action Godzilla will be like. Shin is definitely my favorite physical form of him and Iím really looking forward to what he will be like after the Monsterverse is done with.

God, imagine if it was the Monsterverse Godzilla though. It'd be like the to-scale refit USS Enterprise attraction that was bandied about for a while in Vegas, it would instantly become the defining skyline feature of nearly any city it was built near.

You would be surprised, roller coasters are mega expensive, its entirely possible a simple loop around a statue would be cheaper then a "real" ride.

The weirdest bit to me is one of the US releases of Gorath, where the copy mentions "giant monsters being disturbed from their slumber" even though the monster stuff was cut from that version (which really disappointed me as a kid, I should go back and give that movie a fair shake if I can ever find it.

Oh hey they're doing Godzilla trading cards. But not actual cards, it's just .gifs. You can buy a random pack of .gifs. Opening a single pack emits as much carbon as burning a barrel of gasoline.

Always thought that was definitely a skippable scene from the Japanese cut of Gorath; basically a bunch of the main characters flying in the VTOL that will get reused four years later in the first Ultraman kill a giant walrus.

The only rationale provided is that if they let him loose, he'll cause more damage to the nuclear rockets pushing the Earth out of orbit.

Also, they literally only dug up ONE giant walrus; they should have found more in their diggings unless that one giant walrus just happened to be the last..
