asked a Canadian company specializing in theme and water parks to propose a new design to bring Navy Pier into the future. Their suggestions include a floating hotel, an indoor water park, and a monorail stretching the length of the pier.Here's Forrec's imagery:

Forrec's proposal to bring Navy Pier into the future seems to resemble an old-fashioned postcard, planes and all.
The inside water park to keep tourists off the streets of Chicago.
For further amusement, read Blair Kamin's biting critique of the plan.
