so that in addition to the door opening, there is some action (music? wind up toy? anything) OK - the light doesn't "count", but it is a nice touch.

       Add a giant rainbow-coloured web which fires out from the back of the garage (custard-powered of course) and captures your car, pulling it inward accompanied by a recording of an octopus eating a shrimp (only amplified significantly). When the car reaches the parking spot the web releases its grip and winds back into its holder ready for next time. In this way you can park the car on the driveway and activate the garage door then stroll into your house without even bothering to drive into the garage to park.

       Perhaps a laser light show across the darkened garage, which you could watch while the door opened all the way.
