Renaissance Entertainment Inc. of Orlando is marketing “Ego Trip: A Ride About You.”
The ride, which Renaissance hopes to sell to a theme park or to operate at fairs, will use riders names, photos and voices to create a totally personalized experience.
As paparazzi snap away and adoring fans call their names, riders will attend their own movie premieres. Theyll visit an art museum where theyll view paintings of themselves as done by Picasso, Warhol and van Gogh.
Theyll attend a political rally where theyll be urged to run for president and a sporting event where theyll be praised for their athletic prowess. Finally, theyll enjoy a ticker-tape parade in their honor.
Afterward, ego-stroked riders will proceed to the gift shopwhere they can buy all sorts of stuff emblazoned with their images.
“Whats everyones favorite subject? Themselves,” Renaissance President Jon Binkowski said, “This is taking that to the nth degree.”
