Gary Goddard has just about the coolest job in the universe. He gets to design theme park rides. Over the decades his work has appeared all over the world, in places like Universal Studios, but not everything he put to paper made it to construction.

Like his idea for a ride based on Aliens.

Seems it was designed for a Korean theme park in the late 90s, and both the park and rights-holders Fox were totally serious about it. Sadly, the Asian market crash of 1997 put a stop to the plans. It would have been a sit-down experience similar to, say, the Terminator ride at Universal, or Star Tours at Disneyland.
