    Re: Astro Orbitor Planets

    You know, I rather like Astro Orbitor but I never go on it due to round bouts make me sick. I never noticed that the planets/orbs weren't spinning.

    I'm one of the few who love the whole Jules Verne look to the New Tomorrowland. Miss you Rocket Rods <3

    I used to love watching them orbit around always waiting for them to hit one another (even though I knew they never would) They were somehow oddly hypnotizing.

    Yeah but move it back into the land....where it is now just makes more crowds then needs to be....also for me anyway the old location was better since you could see Space Mountain, the matterhorn, Monorail, autotopia, and the subs.....instead of just the hub

    During the last refurb they fixed the mechanism that rotates the globes, but they didn't last more than a few months. At least the repaint looks better I suppose.

    They can still be in Tomorrowland. Just not in their current "bottleneck" location. Move them back up high and get rid of the stupid planet sculpture in the middle of them.

    I wonder if it will at all be possible to get the jets up on the platform in some form since the people mover is slated to never come back.

    Anyone know if they have stopped working all together, or if I just went on a day where they didn't work?
    It didn't last too long after the last complete overhaul. Like less than a year if I recall.. can probably find something in search.

    They have stopped working on all three versions of the attraction. The other two are in Paris and Hong Kong. It has been said that the attraction has to be partially disassembled to reach the mechanism.
