    New Rocket Jets Updates... ?

    Anyone got any news on the removal of the astro orbiter in favor of restoring the Rocket Jets? Any idea when they are going to remove the "Mineral rocks" that are in the front??

    Re: New Rocket Jets Updates... ?

    Al mentioned this in one of his columns a few months back for both Rocket Jets/Astro Orbitor. So far, it's only rumor. No confirmation on that, or what they do with the former Peoplemover track.

    On the rocks infront though ....... word is that is *tentatively* scheduled to be removed this fall/winter. But again ... this info seems to be more *hints* than official confirmations.

    I'm anxious to see what happens.

    I would love to see the astro oribiter leave the front of tomorrowland. I would also love to see the old rocket jets back up and a working people mover.

    I just tried to do a "google" search for Discoveryland's entrance at Disneyland Paris - failed .. where they have the same thing - To demonstrate ......... Many of TL:98s "inspirations" (if you want to call it that ......... have influences of Discoveryland. Such as these vertical rock formations at the entrance.

    And even Discoveryland is becoming more Tomorrowland, with blue paint. It's revenge, I guess.

    I had the opportunity to visit DL Paris and Discoveryland is beautiful. The space is much more open and they got to put in many very strong visual elements.

    What worked in Paris was an utter failure in Anaheim and I am glad to see the additions of '98 slowly making their way to Yesterland (I only wish it happened quicker!)

    And if Astro Orbitor/Rocket Jets ever gets put back up where it use to be ... imagine how expansive TL will look again:

    And don't forget that 'crappy' paint scheme, which is being elminated.
