i totally remember the speeding up and then the slowing down noises. i was only like 6 or 7 when i rode it and i dont remember the inside building but i always thought the ride was awesome little did i know the problems that the ride possesed
My kids and I stood in like for 3 1/2 hours for Rocket Rods once. It was brand new, it was our last night at DL, and we were dead on our feet...but...we HAD to ride it. It was fun...for a few seconds at a time! ha! Fun video!
Never had the oppurtunity to ride it. From the video, it looks like I didn't miss much.

ok that cracked me up It looked like a sad attempt to resurrect some old pre laid track. And of course when you are 6, 7 years old you could care less what visuals you can see on a ride.. but boy that sure lacked it. how did we ever survive the people movers? now that was SLOW.
Thanks for sharing. I loved the Rocket Rods. Sadly though, I could probably count on one hand how many times I've ridden it. The reason? It was always broken down, or had WAY too long of a wait. I didn't like it enough to spend all day waiting in line for it. Oh yeah, and there were those fun times I actually waited in line, only for it to break down. Once it wasn't even the ride's fault...the power went out in the entire park. They called it a "power dip".
Wait so did this replace the People Mover or did the People Mover replace this?
It replaced The People Mover. It was there in the later 90's.
Amazingly, the ride never broke down when I was in line or on it. Guess I was lucky.
