My scripted idea for a Sam & Max ride (BEWARE OF LONG LOAD)

posted by Guy in a Box on - last edited - Viewed by 564 users

Hey, remember when I made a thread about what a Sam & Max theme park ride would be like? Well, neither do I! Regardless, I wrote a screenplay on how I think the ride would be like. It's a work in progress, but it's coming out pretty well so far. Right now, it's just the pre-show stuff. Anyways, enjoy!

Alright, I can't post the Word document because it's too big in size. Apparently, it looks like I'm going to need to paste the writing in.

We go inside the ride area, and the queue is made to look somewhat like the hallways of SAM & MAX'S office building. There are a few TVs here and there that show small clips from the SAM & MAX games from Telltale. They also give subtle foreshadowing to the upcoming events in the ride.

Once we get to the front of the line, we are told which boarding row we will be going on. In the pre-loading room, there are a few video screens placed on either side of the wall. Right now, they are playing a looping animation of the Freelance Police symbol spinning.

Once everyone is herded into the pre-show area, the animation starts flickering to static, and the pre-show begins. SAM is in front of the camera fiddling with it, then backs away and shows that we are seeing a feed of SAM & MAX'S OFFICE. MAX is standing in a corner.

INT. SAM & MAX'S OFFICE, DAY

SAM
There we go, finally got it set up.

MAX
About time. I've been trying to practice my lines for way too long now.

SAM
(ahem) Welcome, money-givers, to the offices of the Freelance Police! I'm Sam, the tall and smart one.

MAX
And I'm Max, the cute, cuddly, psychopathic trigger-happy one!

SAM
We're here to show you the behind the scenes of how us policemen do our jobs.

MAX
Some say it's crazy, some say it's animal cruelty, but I say it's fun!

Just then, the PHONE RINGS.

MAX
(gasp) I GOT IT! I GOT IT!!

SAM
I got it!

MAX
No, I got it!

The two start fighting, and accidentally knock over the camera. Now, the only thing being heard is their fighting and the PHONE ringing. Suddenly, they stop, and the PHONE is heard being picked up.

SAM (O.S.)
Hello? Yes? Yes? Yes! What? … I'm sorry, what? No. Yes? Yeees? Holy mace-wielding minotaur kings! We're on our way!

SAM hangs up the PHONE, and as MAX is talking, SAM is putting the CAMERA back onto the table.

MAX
Who was it? PETA again?

SAM
Not this time, my furry little pal. It was the Commissioner.

MAX
Oh, good. That means they haven't found me yet.

SAM
Apparently, those rat vigilantes, the Skinbodies, have came back to power and are stealing hair supplies the city over!

MAX
Gasp! Now how will I make myself all deranged and adorable in the morning?

SAM
Don't you worry, we'll put a stop to it. But it looks like we might need to (motions towards audience) bring these guys along with us.

MAX
Great. More dead weight.

SAM
It's a good thing I bought all those miniature DeSotos a few days ago, for some reason.

MAX
How incredibly convenient!

SAM
But first, we have to show these people a mandatory ride safety video, or else the Disney/Universal guys will be all over us. Max, if you'd do the honors?

MAX
Gladly!

MAX bends down in front of the CAMERA and presses a button. The picture flickers into static and after a few seconds, the picture flickers back and the C.O.P.S from the TTG games come up, floating on a blue-and-black background.

INT. A DARK BLUE-AND-BLACK PLACE

BOB
Hello, and welcome to Sam & Max: The 3D Ride! We are the Computer Obsolescence Prevention Society, better known as the C.O.P.S!

CURT
Before you enjoy the awesomeness that is this ride, we need to go through a few safety regulations.

BLUSTER BLASTER
WHEN AM I GOING TO BE PAID FOR THIS?!

BOB
All in due time, friend. Anyway, onto business. We were originally going to offer everyone Augmented Reality Goggles, but due to some … er, miscalculations...

BLUSTER BLASTER
TOTALLY NOT MY FAULT!

BOB
...we decided to give out Augmented Reality Glasses instead!

A rotating animation of the AUGMENTED REALITY GLASSES appear on the right of the screen.

BOB
Be sure to pick them up in the kiosk next to the doors as you go inside!

The AUGMENTED REALITY GLASSES shrink out and disappear.

BOB
And be sure to put your glasses in our Augmented Reality Glasses Containment Bins when you leave, which are conveniently located behind the exit doors.

A rotating picture of one of the AUGMENTED REALITY GLASSES CONTAINMENT BINS appears on the right of the screen.

BLUSTER BLASTER
THOSE ARE TRASH CANS!

BOB
No, they are Augmented Reality Glasses Containment Bins.

The animation of the AUGMENTED REALITY GLASSES CONTAINMENT BIN shrinks and disappears, much in the same way as the last animation.

CURT
Be sure to go all the way around to the end of the row and sit. Each seat gives you a good view of the ride, so don't be annoyed.

BOB
If you have heart problems, pregnancy, or if you're just plain scared, there are a few non moving seats in the front. And finally, no eating, drinking, smoking, kissing, hurting, killing, maiming, shooting, laser blasting, bouncing, chasing, choking, or spontaneously combusting while on the ride. And that's it!

CHIPPY
(short congratulatory tune)

BOB
Thank you for listening, and enjoy the ride!

BLUSTER BLASTER
CAN I SAY IT NOW?

BOB
Yes, my friend. Yes you may.

BLUSTER BLASTER
YAY! (ahem) (in booming voice) DOORS OPEN NOW!! THERE IS NO ESCAPE!!!!

At this cue, the automatic doors swing open, and we go in.

That's all I got. What's your feedback?

    Not exactly.

    My idea is that it's one-fifth Muppetvision 3D, two-fifths Jimmy Neutron's Nicktoon Blast, one-fifth Terminator 2 3D, and one-fifth Shrek 3D.

    Yeah, that's a lot of 3D.

    Yeah, that's a lot of 3D.

    can you elaborate?

  • I'm thinking of this Spongebob 3D motion 3D ride I went on at Kings Island... anyway, this sounds great. Oh, and I haven't got to die on Mr Toad with my soul train token yet, in case you're wondering.

    Actually, I've been on that ride as well. It's also over at Carowinds near where I live. That's also one part of the ride (it's in sixths now)

    Also, you need to remember to uphold your part of the deal. ;)

    @Weeblerjake said: can you elaborate?

    Okay, let's see...

    It has moving vehicles like the Jimmy Neutron ride (although the vehicles are miniature DeSotos, as the script shows), it has 3D and gives a bit of "damage" to the theater like MuppetVision, it is going to have in-ride effects like Shrek 3D (my favorite idea is with Max accidentally firing bullets at you, and in the theater, a bunch of lights go off in time with Max's blasts to feel like he's shooting around the theater, and little air jets go off to make it feel like bullets go past your head :) ), and something that relates to the Terminator ride.

  • I think you've done a pretty good job on the writing..which is quite hard to nail.. kudos!

  • @Hero1 said: I think you've done a pretty good job on the writing..which is quite hard to nail.. kudos!

    Thanks for all the praise, guys. I'll try to see if I can get the rest of the ride up. I'm feeling somewhat brain-dead for ideas, so if anyone has any ideas for the ride, they'd be appreciated. :)

    Oh, yes, and if you want to see one of the things that I'm using as a guide to write this script, here it is.

  • I have two ideas:

    1- Sam says something like they have to be less heavy, and Max attemps to let behind the public, until Sam correct him and said they have to unload the trunk (And, if you want, you can give a long list of stuff in the trunk, including a Gorilla)

    2- Somehow, Sam went missing, and Max has to drive. Let's the public know why Sam doesn't let him drive unless he feels generous for a little while, and Sam, somehow, is still in the car (Just for make the horror short. But he can be missing for something else. The point is just make Max drive).

  • 1 - Not bad, maybe have it so that Max sounds like he's behind the auditorium.

    2 - I had an idea similar to that: Sam has Max shoot at the Skinbodies, then he gets distracted and starts shooting at the riders. Then Sam says something along the lines of "let me handle this, you drive the car", and Max gets distracted and jumps off a ramp onto the train bridge.

    Still up for any ideas.

  • Now I'm thinking about it, what's about if Max actually left the public behind. Without saying he will, he just do it. Like, all the auditorium went to dark and the mini-desotos stop moving for a sec and then Sam shouts something like "Not the people, bucket head! The trunk!".

    I'll be in Brainstorming mode for a while, and, if I have an idea even if its stupid, I'll post it. :)

  • When Bob says no spontaneusly combusting, Max's voice should come over and whisper "Hey Sam I need to combust." And then Sam's voice would say " Max I asked you if you needed to go before and you said no." "But realy need to go NOW" Max's voice. "Alright just go up the back and hope that theres nobody within a metre radius of you."Sam's voice. Steps are heard with Max ocasionly saying "Pardon me", "sorry lady" and "get out the way!". The COPS start to talk again.
