      Could someone explain to me what the swinging door effect is? I hope they plan on covering up those speakers that you can clearly see in the third lift hill. I noticed them in March, it may have already been fixed by now.

        ^ This. I can't seem to remember this effect in my 25+ years of riding BTMRR.

          As you come down off the 3rd lift hill you come out of the mountain. There are doors that are now permanently open. They used to be closed and only open when a train came through them. It kept the area darker and provided an extra thrill. It hasn't worked in a VERY long time.

          Thanks and welcome dizneyfreak55.

              I don't think it will be down long if that is their main goal. Should be up and running fairly quickly. I would think anyway.

                Jerrod the OP said Minor cosmetic upgrades so I would guess it would be only closed for a few days or more nothing long term like the rumor we heard a while back.

                    Yes. Although it would be nice late this year or early next year for the ride to get a major overhaul. But Matterhorn could use one as well.

                      Isn't the third lift hill the "earthquake" sequence?

                      Dear Peoplemover Fans, If you want to see a new attraction that at least mimics the 1967 Peoplemover in a future Tomorrowland remodel, you need to write to the powers-that-be, and let them know. If you don't - Then the next time Tomorrowland is remodeled, you will see a land barren of any "Peoplemover" type attraction.

                        Yes. Earthquake on the way up, then down the slight hill past the open doors and out. It's those doors that used to open and close.

                          Thanks mycroft16..
                          Never even knew that effect existed..
                          After hearing about it, I'm interested to see if it'll be put back in
                          Does it appear like your going to crash into it, then open up? or is it solely used to make the room darker?

                            Not certain. I've never seen it either in person. Only heard from the ol' timers about it.

                              From what I heard you couldn't really see the effect from the train unless you were near the front of it or from anywhere outside the ride that you could see that drop hill. Still would be cool to see that effect back in action. maybe even add some other animals to the ride.
