    Yup, Al himself said that. It's still just a rumor, not confirmed yet.

            I never went on the Rocket Rods. I hated the idea when I first saw the concept art, I hated the rods when I saw them on tv, and I hated the fact that when they closed Disney didnt do anything with the track. Thanks for nothing Pre$$ler!

              hah, The rocket rods were a great idea, they had much more plans to make the more fun, more fast, and much more eficient. There was even supposed to be awsome effects in the tunnels... but.... Pressler cut the budget. I still really liked rocket rods.. but they could have been better and still working to this day!

                  My problem with the "rocket rods" from day 1 is that they didnt make any sense whatsoever. I mean they didnt fit into the victorian theme, they didnt fit into the future theme, and they sure as hell didnt fit into Ei$ner's "Montana" theme. On top of that they were nothing more than an outdoor version of Space Mountain.

                    It would be nice to see the PM track being in use. Right now it's just this huge thing in the middle of the walkway that has no USE whatsoever. The idea of an Autopia-like attraction on the PM track would be good. It was nice to wave to people in the PeopleMovers, anyway.

                      not just pressler

                      GM promised to pay half of the costs for building the ride I believe

                      GM chose to back out of the deal and thus the budget was cut in half (no idea what else Pressler cut after that though)

                        they were cool looking cars of the future and they went very fast (since people believe we'll be driving faster in the future which I find to be totaly innacurate but whatever)

                        they matched the future theme but they didn't match the victorian future that never was theme

                        the rocket rods were ok but yeah badly executed and it didn't match the story they were preaching about what the lands new theme was

                          Do you think they will bring back the TRON tunnel?

                          Also, why did they get rid of the tron tunnel in the first place, it would have looked very cool for rocket rods.

                            Ooh, I hope so. And I'm all for bringing the PeopleMover back! Why not?

                              Ok yes. rocket rods sucked butt.. it was somewhat fun to ride a bore at times.. lines that went for days...I can say it in my honest opinion it was a sucessful failure..The succesfully built a new attraction on an old attraction but failed to do enough research that it destroyed itself. Im hoping they will bring the people mover back and once again put some movement into tommorowland. I still cant stand the rockets and that ball spinner. I think its an eye sore and causes such a bottle neck into tommorowland. The brown rocks or whatever theyre suppose to be would be cool if they were cyrstal looking. But im getting of the topic.. Yes bring back peoplemover!!

                                Well Disney is working on a new TRON movie (I've heard either Tron 2.0 or a remake of the original) so maybe we will get TRON Tunnel: The Next Generation. If we can't have that it would be cool if we travel through the "Planet factory floor" from Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy.

                                  Yeah, there's so much you could do with PeopleMover:

                                  Classic
                                  Autopia hybrid
                                  Buzz-style spinning
                                  Vehicle-mounted projector effects
                                  etc.

                                  And, if they took it out, they have proven with RocketRods that it will be virtually impossible to reuse the track layout for anything radically different. So you'd then have these bizarre spaces with the track gone, like TL's "hub" and the Star Tours queue.

                                      I'm sorry but I just don't see how the peoplemover is futuristic anymore. If WDI was able to come up with a futuristic peoplemover spawn then I would be all for it but I am completely against the rediculously slow peoplemover coming back.

                                        I am, too. A lot of people say that they liked it for resting their legs and taking a look around TL, but I disagree. You could always take the monorail or go on IAWS (despite its lack of "park views"). I think they could make the Autopia hybrid, like mentioned earlier.
