    Re: Rainbow Ridge

    Quick question which is sort of related. I'm at Disneyland right now and noticed that one of the old Rainbow Ridge tunnels (the boarded up one) has a green construction tarp over it and the hillside. Any ideas if this is also going away or just being refurbished?

    Re: Rainbow Ridge

    I have no qualms one way or the other. True it would be sad to see Rainbow Ridge go, but then again there could be a bright new project that follows in it's wake. Possibly bigger better grander buildings or a whole new scene entirely.

    Because you've got to remember...

    There's a great big beautiful tomorrow...just a dream away!

    I'd have to partly agree with this. I wouldn't want them to be demolished due to the historic nature of it all. But it has always frustrated me to some extent that I never felt I was in the town itself while passing next to it in BTMRR. It has always felt like I was riding past some elaborate miniature golf props.

    It feels more realistic viewing it from the queue. But as you go by it in the ride it just loses any immersion that I think it should have.

    Re: Rainbow Ridge

    I'm going to sit in the "wait and see" camp with this one. There are just too many possibilities. If someone overheard WDI saying "we'll take out the buildings..." well, that could mean they are a) rebuilding the town; b) rebuilding the area underneath/around the town and then putting the buildings back; c) removing them temporarily for safekeeping while the rest of BTMRR is refurbed, and then putting them back...it could be anything.

    I would hate to see them vanish altogether because they're cool. I love catching bits of conversations and music floating out of the town as the train rolls by.

    Re: Rainbow Ridge

    A bit off topic question. Is BTM's Rainbow Ridge in the same exact spot as MTTNW's Rainbow Ridge?

    They had to close the Fort because of damage done by carpenter bees. There could be damage here that we can`t see that needs to be repaired or replaced.

    Re: Rainbow Ridge

    Perhaps they plan on repurposing the buildings and relocating them somewhere else? Perhaps as part of the new E ticket. ??? Maybe the new E Ticket will have a town like this somehow involved in it, so they don't want to have it duplicated in two different attractions? Just thinking outside the box

We simply don't know, so before we leap to conclusions and break out the pitchforks and the lynch mobs head off to Burbank and Glendale, before anyone chains themselves to the railings of the Assay Office, let's take a breath and realize a few things...

    a) Rumor with no real confirmation yet regardless of the source
    b) Only initial tear down mentioned, no idea what plans are

    Let's keep this thread calm and objective PLEASE! and not leap to baseless and unsubstantiated conclusions.
    Read the Mouseplanet article and it sounds like it is true. Plus the fact that it is David Koenig reporting (who is to Mouseplanet what Al is to Micechat) and not Jim Hill leads me to believe that only two buildings will be left standing with no replacement for the torn down buildings.
