    Re: Where To Put The Astro Orbitor?

    I wonder how many here ever rode the old Rocket Jets when they were up on top of the PeopleMover station. That's where they were when I was a kid and what a fantastic sensation of flying it was. You pulled the stick all they way back and before you knew it you were wizzing high above the rooftops of Tomorrowland. A real rush for an 11 year old, especially at night with all of the lights. The 98 location (on the ground) just doesn't compare. Moving them there was a terrible idea.

    I would love to see them go back up where they belong.

    Re: Where To Put The Astro Orbitor?

    Don't forget, that they just copied DLP(if im not mistaken), i like the look, but it needs to be back home, I plan to do a major renovation for TL(when im an imagineer) and actually making futuristic, i liked the old TL better, sure the color sheme now is WAY better, but there was a lot more to do back then!!!!! I will make sure to rebuild some old TL rides, and make them better, ill also make it more like the EPCOT( EPCOT Center is also really good) Walt had disign and originally planned! Basiclly, ill make it more into a futuristic city! The theme right now was just copied from DLP's Discoveryland.

    They need to run it through spell check. It should be Orbiter, not Orbitor.

    All jokes aside, I don't really care where it is. Besides nostalgia hounds (no offense - It's not like I am not one), I don't think many people really care whether it's high up or not...I'm saying general guests, not Micechatters or whatnot. I'm not trying to be rude. I'm just saying that the general public probably won't care either way, no matter how much we say it offered a better thrill/view from up high.

    It certainly draws the eye ("weenie") but it is a hindrance to the entry of its land and, along with the rocks, makes for a crowd control nightmare. Now, if they could raise it, change its color, AND pull it out of the pathway, then they would be in business.

    Re: Where To Put The Astro Orbitor?

    I too don't think the public would care. I have come to sort of questiont he purpose fo the Orbitor in the first place. Sure atop the PeopleMover may be more "thrilling" but is the attraction itself really a major part of Tomorrowland? Or is it a part of your childhood you just don't want to let go? I remember riding the Rocket Jets. I have even been on the Astro Orbitor at TMK.

    FutureImagineer183, Walt had nothing to do with EPCOT Center/Epcot. His E.P.C.O.T. was very different.

    Re: Where To Put The Astro Orbitor?

    ^thats what i meant i was just too lazy to type all the dots, i meant E.P.C.O.T. or the Experimental Prototype Community of Tommorrow! People would "live" in the park, its pretty complicated(i just got a spark reading this thread) to explain, but i think you get the gist of it! Dont copy my idea, you Imagineers, i wanna get rich out of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'd say remove it and put a copy of HKDL Orbitron on top of the People Mover station, where it belong.

    Re: Where To Put The Astro Orbitor?

    WHy does everyone want to see outside of DL so bad?
    And, also I remeber the last few times I was there and it was on top of the peoplemover the lines were incredibly short, or non-existint at times. Moving it seemed to at least make the line a little bit longer.

    Re: Where To Put The Astro Orbitor?

    The astro orbitor does indeed look very cool (in my opinion). But I'd personally really like to see it back in it's original spot. I'm not just saying that because "I grew up with it on top of the peoplemover", or "That's how it was when I was a kid". My first visit to DL was after 1998 so I have actually grown up with it on the ground. But I still think it would be much better on the platform.
