Harry Potter has a ride. The Transformers have a ride. Hell, Pirates of the Caribbean was a ride BEFORE it was a movie. Why limit amusement park festivities to just those crazy huge blockbuster franchises? Let’s run down 10 flicks that would make for some interesting rides.

10. Bad Boys 2

Riders would thrill to the experience of invading Cuba in humvees alongside Martin Lawrence and the Fresh Prince!

9. Stir of Echoes

It would certainly be a good creep-out ride, haunted house style, to have Ileana Douglas mass-hypnotizing groups of clueless tourists to “flip their switches.”

8. Pineapple Express

Its name already sounds like a ride, and it would be cheap to make – just sit in a room and look at crazy stoner things for five minutes, until the car suddenly whisks you out into a madcap world of cop car chases and explosions, which can really just be a track in a circle. Stoners won’t notice!

7. Yellow Submarine

Actually, if you’re going with a stoner-focused ride, you can’t do better than the Beatles’ surreal animated madhouse. People would stumble off of this one with the munchies.

6. Halloween

The name is general enough to be all-inclusive of random spooky scares, but springing Michael Myers on people would suddenly make things frighteningly specific. Have John Carpenter design it, even!
