This is my version of the 20k ride script. It is the version from this site, but features new scenes and effects. The rest shall be posted in a few days.
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: The New Ride
(We begin our journey at a spacious lagoon, which is surrounded my large masses of gray volcanic rock. There is a wide variety of flora and fauna. We approach a covered area, which has pillars with an air of the 19th century industrial revolution. The floor is covered with grates, and lamps hang at regular intervals. We listen to lively sea chanties, with Captain Nemo telling interesting facts about the sea at intervals. As we wait and soon draw closer to the lagoon, we see a large submarine of about 174 ft. The submarine is called the Nautilus and sits at an extra dock.)
Captain Nemo's Queue Narration:
How old is the Earth? How is it formed? These and other questions about our watery planet have intrigued man since the beginning of time. As far as we know, the oceans have existed for some four and a half billion years. And for about the last one hundred million years, the sea has been a living, dynamic world, shaping and reshaping continents, geologically speaking, mountains have been raised then worn away by falling and running water, the Debris carried on to the lowlands, and then back to the sea. Our marine scientists at Vulcania believe that the sediments below the waves contain a continuous record of terrestrial history. And to this end, we keep probing the ocean floor.
To primitive man, the oceans were merely a source of fear, fascination, and fish. About three millenniums ago, the seas became a highway over which to carry national power and culture, as well as trade. The history of civilization is largely the story of seafaring men who quested for ever-farther shores. They saw the ocean as a wilderness and a challenge. They used the sea, but only on its terms. Now we appear to be on the verge of taming the restless sea. As you cruise 20,000 leagues under the sea, consider the many things that we have yet to learn about this boundless realm of liquid space.
If there are intelligent beings on other planets, they might very well have a different name for our Earth. Perhaps 'Oceanus' would be more appropriate. For from their vantage point, they can see the vast areas of water that cover over 70 percent of the surface of this oasis in space.
If man is to reap the bounty of the deep, he must learn all he can about the ocean and its contents. To this end, our marine laboratories at Vulcania are stepping up their research capabilities. The sophisticated diving methods and saturation diving techniques of the Nautilus and her satelite ships have dramatically increased the time man can life comfortably and for long periods in the ocean depths. It seems safe to assume that one day, future generations will be released from their terrestrial bonds and achieve absolute freedom in liquid space. We hope that this voyage you're about to take 20,000 leagues under the sea will stimulate your interest in the phenomenon of life in the ocean depths.
On this voyage to the deppest parts of the ocean, we shall be traveling in small submersible boat. Based on my research while constructing the Nautilus, I found a way to provide accomodations for those who can truly appreciate the beauty of the sea on which all life depends.
Modern man's most compelling interests in the ocean lies in its great potential for renewable resources. Not only of protein-rich food, but also in the wealth of minerals, energy, and drugs. Our recent explorations have revealed vast deposits of minerals that can be mined. At Vulcania, we have tapped the ebb and flow of the tides to produce clean and efficient electric power. One of the most promising areas of investigation is in the field of marine biomedicine. We're discovering many antibiotics and other useful drugs in ocean organisms. There are many, many other potentialities to be found in the Earth's last frontier. But we must always keep in mind that the bounty of the sea is not limitless. Man must be prudent in his exploration and utilization of this last, great storehouse of natural wealth.
(We look around this queue area and see things such as a map of this lagoon, and various locales in the area. We see a sign describing the Nautilus' speed, size, and displacment, etc. We see diagrams of marine life such as the Giant Squid, the Great Green Sea Turtle, and other species. We reach the end of the dock and board another, smaller satelite submarine. It is styled like the Nautilus, but has some major differences.)
The new dock. In my research I have found no way the the sub on the spur dock could be loaded. So to decrese load times, there is an elevated walkway to the spur dock. The Nautilus at the end of the dock is similar to the one's at DLP and TDL. It doesn't function, but is decorative. It is complete below the waterline, and the subs would see it underwater before diving. The subs that we ride in look more like the the one the giant squid is attacking in the original. It looks like the nautilus but obviously isn't. You know, the satelite ships that Nemo mentions in the diver scene.
Tell me what you think. Constructive criticism is allways welcome.

Your ideas are interesting, but you may get better feedback if you explained why you're updating the 20K ride.
