    Will DL ever see a trackless ride system?

    Like Winnie the Pooh uses in Japan?

    If DL ever builds a BATB ride......I can definitely see them using that type of system. Not sure what else would be a good fit. Suggestions?

    As of right now, it looks like Sea World in Orlando will be the first here in the states with their Empire of the Penguin attraction opening next year.

    The parking lot tram is a trackless ride system.
    "You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    That would be nice if there was a trackless BATB ride! Vehicles circling around Belle and the Beast in the ballroom would be a nice sight.

    I have been told that its a very expensive ride system to install and maintain. However, that doesn't mean that its not worth the cost because it could bring in a lot more guests if done right. A ride system is only as good as the story and its surroundings.

    That's OK........Disney seems to like really expensive rides. See Cars Land.

    Fantasyland Theater to be leveled in favor of Beauty and the Beast trackless dark ride? I'd take it.

    Re: Will DL ever see a trackless ride system?

    I think it's best if it stays as a japan exclusive. They could have easily made a trackless system for Luigi's Flying Tyres or Mater's Junkyard Jamboree. It would have made the Luigi's funner and I would be willing to wait 40 minutes to ride that!I am pretty sure that it can operate in the rain (Aquatopia) and so it seems as though they are purposely keeping it a Tokyo exclusive.

    What's with all the talk of "exclusives"??? How about if everyone all over the world gets to enjoy these rides and technologies? We would never see another new ride again at DL with that type of attitude......and we most definitely would not have seen RSR (hello Test Track!)
