    I think they've learned not to change ride vehicles too much now from the Matterhorn fiasco. It will look nice repainted.

    Hm. New ride vehicles? I am sure aesthetically they won't look much different. I wonder what they are changing?

    long time..but looking at what they are doing..hopefully this turns out better than the 6 month matterhorn refurb did since the tracks are being replaced.

    I'd love new vehicles that are better aged like the olive green paneled trains in Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris. They don't look so plastic-y.

    Man would that be nice, I feel bad for my girlfriend when we ride it together due to our Height difference.

    Hopefully whatever they do, it means the return of the effects in the mine.
    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

    Let me start off with the unfounded rumors.

    Adding a loop of course as the first rumor.
    Over the shoulder individual seat harnesses.
    Door that opens at the last hill.
    No more Rainbow Ridge.
    Realigning the tracks for bigger drops and smoother turns....
    More AA all over the place.
    Engines in the rear to push the trains instead of the front to pull them.

    I'm guessing individual lap bars, although that can get tricky since depending on the sizes of individual people in your party, you can fit either two or three people in one car. I'd hate to lose capacity by only having two lap bars per car, but yet I'm not sure there's room in a car for three lap bars. Perhaps locking seatbelts instead.

    What would be the point of having over-the-shoulder restraints?
