I'll be sure to bring more facts with me to the table next time.
    Just because a company makes money currently does not mean it is functioning at its best ability, revolutionizing the industry, or making great decisions for long-term success. Would you have guessed GM would have gone bankrupt 5 years before it happened? I don't think so.

In the end, it is up to Disney to make great decisions and prevent themselves from going bankrupt in the future. Attractions like Pirates and Haunted Mansion are not going to last forever, when that day comes the park will lose interest and it will happen unexpectedly.

        So instead of speaking with your wallet, you come on to a Disney fan forum and bash a product you support with your dollars, derailing a positive thread. I hate to break it to you, but you're part of the very problem you're complaining about.

        Maybe YOU will lose interest in the park, but that doesn't mean everyone will. That seems to be a problem some people have - confusing the fact that what THEY wan't isn't necessarily what everyone wants.

          So getting back on topic, I want to affirm the OP's discovery that MJJ is a really fun ride for both kids and adults. It's one of those rides where the experience is actually very different than seeing it on video. For example, on video it looks really slow, but when you're on it and whipping around that corner, it feels really fast. Theming is great even if you haven't seen the movie, because what looks like junk is actually very carefully chosen and placed around the queue, so taking some time to really look around is going to give you one of those classic DLR experiences of seeing something new every time you wait. I give MJJ a huge thumbs up and I do hope everyone gives it a chance.

          Or not, so the line is shorter for me .

              I love the ride as well it's executed to me perfectly. They nailed the spirit of that lovable charactor mater and managed to make a fun attraction out of it.

                But to answer your question, I'd wait 30 minutes for Maters.
                An hour for RSR seems fair to me, especially this season. It's definitely a fun attraction and I've waited in longer for less. I'd never get in the Standby line unless the park just opened and I'm doing Magic Mornings. 30 for Maters is pushing it for me. I think 25 is my limit for this ride.

                  my apologies for letting my frustration get the best of me...and my apologies for anyone who I may have offended.

                  Like I said before, I love the ride as does my daughter. We have a blast, she LOVES Mater and her eyes lighting up while going through the line was awesome. I also didn't know what what to expect from the ride but was pleasantly surprised as to how much giggling was going on by my daughter and myself.

                    I just liked the ride. The queue was adorable, the tractors were funny and the music was awesome. I was impressed and fascinated with the way the tractors switched from one rotating table to the other. I was, however, disappointed with the whipping motion because it made the ride way too tame for me. I really wanted to feel that rush of whipping all the way around or at least whipping much further around. Just as the whipping motion started to pick up speed the breaks are put on and the car slows and then starts to whip the other direction. I guess I wanted it to be more like a scrambler with that fast whip that pushes you into the back of your seat and it wasn't so I was disappointed. Maybe if I ride it a few more times I will be able to enjoy it more. Also so you know, I'm not much for thrill rides - Tower of Terror is way too scarey for me and Screamin' is pretty much right at my threshold of tolerability. So when I say Mater's Junkyard Jamboree is tame, it's tame.

                        It has been stated in previous threads that Mater's is actually an updated version of a Cuddle Up, a ride that was a staple in the Philadelphia Toboggen Co. catalog for years, and in fact was being installed new in the 1960's.

I have seen you on more than one occasion derail an entire thread in order to unleash the same diatribe you posted in a different thread. You read the title of this thread and the OP and you purposely came in here to derail it to push your agenda and view on everyone else.

                          I have a GREAT idea for you, since I know there are other chatters that do the same thing why don't you creat a complaint thread where you all could go off about your displeasure and despise of the DLR and the corporate dealings or whatever else you don't like about Disney.

                          Im not trying to be mean but enough is enough and I get really irritated by seeing countless threads derailed by other people just so an unwanted debate can insure that has NOTHING to do with the OP.
                          I apologize if you don't like my point of view but this is a discussion board which deals with both positive and negative aspects. If you can't handle someone giving an opposing opinion from your own, might I suggest creating another website? There is no rule on Micechat that states I have to give up my feelings on a topic just to comfort someone who may only want to listen to positive aspects. I make no apologies for creating a controversial statement or challenging common points of view, that's the beauty of discussion. Furthermore, this notion that I only post negative statements and troll in other threads is a complete fabrication; you are talking to someone who has praised WOC on numerous occasions and truly appreciates the effort put into Buena Vista Street.

                              Is it so unbelievable that someone who cares about the park deeply would feel the need to defend its integrity? Is a mother bad for pointing out poor decisions made by their child? Just because I choose not to disown the company I grew up with because of recent poor decisions doesn't make me part of the problem, at least I choose to go out of my way and make an effort to point things out so the company is aware of certain issues or feedback they wouldn't normally get.

                              Maybe YOU will lose interest in the park, but that doesn't mean everyone will. That seems to be a problem some people have - confusing the fact that what THEY wan't isn't necessarily what everyone wants.
                              You could say the same thing about Legoland or Knott's Berry Farm. Not everyone gave up Knott's when they changed from a family park to a roller coaster model, but does that mean the public benefited from it?

                                Interwebz are serous business...

                                Back on topic, I totally agree with OP on this one.

                                Rode Mater's Junkyard Jamboree with the Girlfriend and we had a blast! We weren't really anticipating much, but once it whipped around the first time, we were totally caught off guard So much that I slid across and smashed her, which then led to her getting me right back with the next time it swung around! Have to say it was probably the funnest ride we've been on in a while

If it just looks like junk, then it's going to look like junk in a queue or in a ride or in any type of attraction. *shrug*
