    If that "bigger and better" means pushing Marvel into Tomorrowland - That's not necessarily "bigger" and "better".

    To me .. "bigger and better" means -

    * Original (Something not derived from a cartoon or other "brand" / "franchise")
    * Something the entire family can ride together
    * With a 5 to 10 minute ride time

    Re: Will DL Get A Tron Coaster? If So, What Type Of Coaster Ride Might It BE?

    I would love a TRON themed attraction again. I say again because the PM went through a TRON section and I loved it. Anyways I don't see it happening at DLR. I think even though it's based on a movie it's a original story idea and if executed correctly it could fit into TL easy and appease everyone. I voted for the none option but only because it probably won't be made.

    Re: Will DL Get A Tron Coaster? If So, What Type Of Coaster Ride Might It BE?

    I have always thought that TRON would be best represented in the parks by a virtual game-grid arena. A place where guests can compete against one another in augmented reality playing fields.

    At the end of the day, and as much as I'd love to see a TRON thrill ride, any TRON themed coaster would need to be fast and take place entirely in a show building. The issue would be whether the show building would be on-stage and elaborately themed on the outside or off-stage and ugly (like Indy). And, either way you'd have to make a show building that doesn't trump the majesty of Space Mountain's. Perhaps it could be done bu gutting the underground show area for Nemo but even then that might not be enough.
    Many Bothans died to bring you these fastpasses.

The coaster itself could be similar to Knott's Pony Express or the Motocoasters, to mimic riding a lightycle.....if ONLY it'd be comfortable and done right. So I voted based on what I'd like seeing.
    How fun, done right, a Pony Express or Motocoaster would be. Your awesome coaster ideas make my mind race!

    The "rides that families can ride together" element sure is working well at DCA.....it's a wonderful kind of rededication!

    Sounds pretty nice. I'm down for a Tron attraction, no matter what park it is hosted in.

    Indeed, a Tron attraction would bode well for Disneyland or Disney California Adventure. It would be cool to have Tron characters walking about either park giving visitors the inside scoop on Grid happenings.

    I think Tron could make a great attraction or area of attractions. I'd love to see a combined game grid area with a thril ride, more family oriented ride dining etc all in one place esp if it has a wedway going through it :-)

    How this would all be: a combined game grid/thrill ride; a thematic restaurant; and an awesome wedway traveling thru it. The wedway, however, would have to be in a tunnel where those riding the wedway could observe the Tron ride area, but those experiencing Tron could not see the wedway, so as to not interfere with the immersive theming.

    Obstacles outside the Tomorrowland area berm can be removed and/or relocated elsewhere in Anaheim. Whenever Disney decides to expand, nothing will impede it. Also, Innoventions will give way to another attraction in the future (possibly oart of a Tron coaster....and the building could be utilized, rebuilt or completely destroyed.
    This is not nonsensical but rather Tronsensical.

    I do think Tony Baxter would be a great transitional possibility, and he has corporate respect, plus movie industry connections galore.
