    I doubt it. Track layouts doing just appear out of anywhere.

    I think what he means to say is that this isn't the kind of thing Imagineering releases to the public.

    That will give you a good idea of the track layout. You can even fit it to the current steel construction. Also, when viewing the construction photos, look for the rectangular cutouts in the floor - those are for the omni-mover motors, I believe. Just follow those along.

    I hope it's not short as in a 3 minute ride. Not that 3 minute rides are bad, but with all the hype over this attraction, I truly hope it is a longer E ticket attraction.

    I suspect it'll clock in around 5 minutes.

    ^ Yeah, I was just going to say 5-6 minutes, tops. But I do think it's something I'll want to ride over and over so I can see all the effects.

    I thought that I read where Al said they were going to go through all the songs in the movie... they must just blast through them and do some kind of rapid-fire succession because that building is just too small for a true E-ticket ride of 8 minutes or more. Although, if they slow it down to almost a crawling speed, which is possible with the level of detail it sounds like they're going for, it might just be possible to stretch it out for 8 minutes.

    Something tells me that it's going to be a lot like the Nemo subs or Monsters Inc., where it sounds like it's going to be the next major thing, and it turns out to be nice but not spectacular.

    I also think this is going to be more of a "D" ticket attraction, as most of the figure/aa's are going to be on a smaller scale than HM or PoC.

    Not just the loop... where are you going to put on your 3D glasses in the ride? And when do you get to shoot fish?

    You probably put them on before you get squirt with water, pass through a veil of bubbles, and get blasted by air.

    The way that model seems set up .... I would take a gander ... that there are 7 scenes?

    You know .... the Haunted Mansion omnimover layout does not seem much smaller or larger. They seem about the same ... given the scale of the omnimovers ... But of course .. I'm just taking a guess.

    Of DL's omnimovers -
    H.M - comes in about 6 minutes.
    ATIS - also clocked in about 6 minutes as well.
    Buzz - runs about 5 .. or a "hair" less.

    I could be wrong .... but I'm going to guess this will be around 6 minutes. (But for me - Who loves long dark rides) .... the longer the happier I'll be.
