    Rocket Rods 2.0

    If Buzz Lightyear Astro Blaster ever closed in the near future Disney should strongly consider rebuilding rocket rods and fixing all of the problems it had when it was running. It's better than nothing using the track

    I've always wanted the Rocket Rods to come back, as it was a really cool attraction. All they need to do is use a different system and work out all the little bugs. Voila, a new Rocket Rods.

    The Rocket Rods was a great ride. I just wish they would have actually put some money into the upgrades that the track needed when they put them in the first time. If they weren't going to do it right, they should have left the Peoplemover alone.

My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    Rip out the Rocket Rod guide rail and bus bars. Install roller coaster rails on platform. Bank said rails. LIMs on all the straights. Done.
    In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

    don't know what kind of upgrades they WERE planning on adding to RR, but the I have a hard time picturing how they could make that ride fun...

    it was my favorite ride to hate back when it was open, and I am fairly easy to please, LOL... RR has probably the only thing that everyone in my family openly hates

    no theming
    no music I can recall
    no sense of speed because the vehicles seemed too enclosed
    no more CircleVision (one of my favorites)
    no more PeopleMover (another favorite)
    super long lines

    just... nothing to like about it IMO

    If they had banked the turns on the track it would have been a great ride

    If it hadn't replaced the PM, and had it been well thought out, only then could it have been a great attraction.

    I think Carsland makes up for Rocket Rods. Carsland looks so much better.

    If it wasn't hastily out together. And was well thought out and back up with a budget. Then maybe it could work. Only after they remodel TL for the 3rd time.


    What is thy bidding, my Mouseter?
