  • The PeopleMover...



    The PeopleMover was aclassic attraction in Tomorrowland. It opened in 1967 and closed in 1996. It was replaced by Rocket Rods in 1998 (RR closed in 2001, leaving the track empty)

    Nice to ride and relax on a hot day. Nice and cool inside the buildings. But I got tired of all the teens trying to jump off in the tunnels and just causing trouble my yelling and screaming inside the tunnels. It became a ride to stay away from toward the end of its life.

          And what did it do, this so called 'classic attraction'?
          It showcased, in a practical manner, a new and different means of locomotion within a community. People rode it. People got a chance to experience a way to get around that didn't involve driving your own car, finding a parking space, negotiating traffic or hoofing it carrying your stuff.

          What Walt described in his vision of EPCOT using the peoplemover and the monorail system, in my opinion, would have worked and been the defacto standard for getting around in the city from then on out.

          Sure, maybe the Peoplemover wasn't thrilling or amazing or even all that useful (it just took you in a circle and dropped you back off where you started) but the concept was neat, and it was a nice way to relax and see all of Tomorrowland at the same time. Plus it kept a good portion of the crowd off the sidewalks and out of other lines, such as for Space Mountain or Star Tours.

                It took you around a track in Tomorrowland where it went through several attractions.
