  1. Anyway it's academic at this point I suppose, it's not like they will expand the land just to add something as basic as a carousel. If the one ride they do have proves a massive hit, maybe they will build something else, a C or D ticket, to absorb part of the traffic into the land. That's one of the things Animal Kingdom got right with the Pandora land; Flight of Passage is obviously the big hitter but a good number of people, who might not have researched the park as thoroughly, get diverted into Na'vi River Journey. FoP queues are already enormous, imagine if the land didn't have a second ride. (It has to be said, though, that River is so short that people are out again in a flash.)

    I agree that they can make "auto-themed" flat rides that are technically still "immersive," e.g., Dino-Rama at Disney's Animal Kingdom being themed as a carnival, but IMHO that usually comes across as a transparent retroactive rationalization to install inexpensive amusement park rides in a themed environment (or, worse, the backstory isn't obvious to guests, who thus interpret it simply as a non-immersive amusement park within a theme park, e.g., Dino-Rama again).

    That said, something like what you suggested - a carousel in a park-themed subsection - would probably be among the least-intrusive / most-successfully-fitting options.

    Right, but wouldn't a Zootopia Carousel not have animals on it since they are animals. Would it have people? That's weird....

    Indeed, Grizzly Gulch and Super Nintendo World at USH have worked successfully... and a flat ride would break the immersion that the rest of the land seems like it's aiming to deliver (similarly to the ill-placed spinner that "breaks" Adventureland at The Magic Kingdom).

    More than just the ride- a character show, dining, and retail (no different than Frozen at WDS, Nintendo at USH, Mystic Manor/Grizzly Gulch at HKDL, WaterWorld at Universal Beijing...)
