Ok, so we all know the first concept of the ride was to make it a lot larger than what it actually was. The picture of the ride in the lagoon the size of lake superior is pretty cool. It would be nice to know what the imagineers where planning for the ride to be like with that size of a lake? where would they have put it? do you think the subs would of actually dived in that size of lake? Just wondering if anyone had any info?

What I read was that the final tank was only 1/3 the size orginally planned, which would have made the big one a 34.5 million gallon tank! I doubt it would have been any deeper though. :)

I know the lake superior thing is true I've seen concept art or it on the web and in the Disney studios. I have no idea were they planned on putting it. BUT if someone can give me a name of an imagineer that worked on 20k I could actually find out there phone number. And maybe they can explain this all :)

Back where I belong finally..

Ive been looking for information about it. It just seems neat to think the ride was planned on being that big! it makes someone wonder what they planned on doing with the ride if it was that size. Ive been searching the web trying to find information but I havent had much luck. Anyway Ill keep looking. Let me know if you fina out anything.

Well I never heard of the Lake Superior thing but the early concept that I was told of was that the attraction was to have been inside a volcano with 2 interior levels beside the lagoon. The lower level was to be the ride queue with the waiting guests touring Nemos Vulcania base with lab and sea exhibits etc.before departing on their voyage. The upper level was to be an upscale Nautilus themed restarant that would overlook the lagoon and subs. Supposedly drawings of the original concept exist somewhere but the budget killed it. Just something I once heard.--flounder
