Just like most ideas at Disney, it’s actually a revived plan created in the early 2000’s for an attraction called Fire Mountain. This plan was eventually shelved due to the ride system not making it through successful testing. This original idea was for an indoor, volcano themed flying coaster. It apparently made it as far as signing an initial working deal with the company Vekoma to create design and layout ideas.
But now that the movie “Moana“, set in the Polynesian islands, is such a box office smash, Disney might be looking for a new way to incorporate her popularity into the park.
If Disney follows the same line of thinking for Fire Mountain, the new volcano coaster would be located just to the left of the entrance of Pirates of the Caribbean. It would make its home in an undeveloped area next to the back corner of the Jungle Cruise. This is currently where the tracks for the Walt Disney World Railroad lie. Which makes you assume that the railroad would either be re-routed or it could even pass through the volcano in a lave-tube themed tunnel.
Only time will tell if we will see the landscape of the Magic Kingdom change to include its 4th mountain. Would you be excited to see this new addition to the park?
