  • PeopleMovers or Rocket Rods???

    Al Lutz is saying that DL is considering bringing back the PeopleMovers which I think is a beastly idea. In my opinion, they should pay the extra cost to revamp the track and make it Rocket Rod friendly. The PeopleMovers were a slow, tour-type attraction. Not much fun. But if Rocket Rods had the right track, oh, the potential for some more growth in Tomorrowland. Anyone agree? Disagree?

    Do you LJ?

    I liked both attractions. I suspect it would be easier for DL to bring back the Peoplemover since its track still hovers above DL.

          I think it's fair to say that Rocket Rods would cost more then a little bit extra to return

          "and consider this dismaying observation" it would require a large que (with no windows and no doors) which would produce another ride witha nightmare wait (which offers this chilling challenge, to find a way OUT) hopefully they'd find a way to reduce the amount of breakdowns though (of course there's always MY way :lol: )

              Peoplemover. No question.

                  PeopleMover - - I like the idea of the PeopleMover returning in the form of travel Pods from The Incredibles.

                    If I want to go on something fast, I have Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and the Matterhorn... I don't need a ride that has no themeing, no story, no imaginitive transporting queue, no scenery... Bring back the peoplemover and let me enjoy a nice peaceful ride above the hustle and bustle, so my feet can relax...

                    BRING BACK THE PEOPLEMOVER (but re-imagined of course! )

                      I never got a chance to ride the Rocket Rods, so I vote for them. The Fast Pass system could kill the long lines from the past.

                        You can see video from it on several websites including DisneyForever.com, after you see it, you'll see why it was just flat out ugly, fast occasionally, and not very "cool" at all.

                          How about a Peoplemover speed ride during the day that changes to a Rocket Rod speed ride at night?

                            Peoplemover.....how could you even CONSIDER the other ride?

                            Nothing better on a crowded day then to get on a moving bench that lasts 16 minutes, It was a very nice way to take a break and still enjoy a ride.

                            I would clean it up, get better cars, and improve the enclosed parts with a complete re-do of the TRON part (as much as I love Tron, it is dated) I would leave the SM preview as well as Star Tour parts.

                            Another idea is to take a stretch that is in the back portion and create a new tunnel with amazing effects, maybe like the atom effects of the old inner space ride?

                                Bring back the PeopleMover! I think the illusion of speed can be accomplished during the building ride-throughs. When they had the Tron tunnel you almost had that effect during the light cycle race. However, the footage went from a head-on perspective to other angles and shattered the illusion (if that makes any sense). An AA here or there would add to the fun, too.

                                  PeopleMover! What a great way to get away from the crowds and see Tomorrowland from a different vantage point. The constant motion would be a welcome addition to TL again! I ride the PeopleMover everytime I'm in Florida at WDW. I not only think they should bring it back, but expand it! Make it be what the idea behind it is designed for. Move people! I'd have it go places with stations and drop people off in other places. To make it viable you'd have to conceal it some way from the other lands in order to not ruin the theming, then again, perhaps it could go between DCA, Downtown Disney or some such. It is a wonderful concept that should be exploited. If the 60's version was as fast and as smooth as it was, a new 2005 design of the PM would and could be awesome!

                                    Put PeopleMover back in Tomorrowland, maybe make it do slow spins like Buzz, maybe link its station to the Monorail station for an approximation of how it would be used in urban planning.

                                    Perhaps use the RocketRods idea, redone as classic cruising cars, in DCA, minus the awful noise I hear so much about. But please, for the love of Walt, don't make it an obvious tie-in to Pixar's Cars. Just make it a high-speed drag race full of chrome and painted flames... I'm pretty sure Universal has the rights to American Graffiti and Mel's Diner, but use the same concept. Have the CMs dressed as car-hops, and as you pull out onto the "street," you hear a voice that seems to come from the car next to you ask, "Hey ace, wanna race?" And as the light turns green, you're off!

                                      I think the People movers should come back. Space/Rockit mountain will be opening this summer dose disney relly need to add anothe fast ride to Tomrrowland May be they can redo the traks to be like the ones at WDW the polarity trasks instead of pull cars :monkey:

                                        Rocket Rods were fun, but I have a BIG place in my heart for the Peoplemover...its a CLASSIC.
