    Say goodbye to Autopia

    Just heard from an inside source A utopia and Innoventions will soon have walls up for their removal. An unannounced Marvel property shall be moving in.

    Doubt it, the Autopia is not going to be removed ever.

    Re: Say goodbye to Autopia

    Idk why they cant move the autopia to where the fantasyland one was and have it go around there, with the tomorrowland section gone there's room for another ride and Disney purists will be happy and i'll be happy and TDA will be un happy as usual

    I'd be sad to see it go, but I understand why it would need to eventually.

    Re: Say goodbye to Autopia

    I know this isn't 100% related, but does anyone know if those cars run on gas or something else? I've only ridden it once or twice (the fumes give me headaches) but if they do run on gas, I find it hard to believe that environmentalists aren't up in arms about a ride that burns so much fuel. Then again, I may have missed something.

    This has been rumored for a while. I won't believe it until the walls actually go up.
    I wish Frozen would have never been made.

    Re: Say goodbye to Autopia

    Wouldn't it be hard to move it due to the Submarine showbuilding underneath it?

    Re: Say goodbye to Autopia

    Apparently the deciding factor is the gas emissions. They've been getting pressure to redesign the entire fleet to cut down on the air pollution. It was the excuse Disney needed to finally burry this longtime attraction.

    As for a source, I can't disclose that. Its the same source I found that the ladder safety and railings were the big upset from DOSH when they started closing rides awhile ago/tried to cancel Aladdin's ride out on the elephant. Also where I learned of the magic shop closing down before they hired an outside company to reopen it and run it.

    So, believe what you wish. I just heard that walls will be up in TL to remove these attractions and thought I'd share the up to date news.

    They're basically go karts on a track. Not worth the fuss, especially since Disney is otherwise very eco-conscious. (The trains run on bio-diesel).

    Probably not but who wouldn't like to see it re-done a bit.....maybe something like this:

    Cinemark XD - Car Race - YouTube
    Waiting for Godot Micechat.com

    Re: Say goodbye to Autopia

    Isn't Autopia a top of the subs building? And if they close down Autopia that means they would have to close down the subs to. And isn't the iron man exhibit going on in Innoventions until September.

    Fair enough. They would probably have some type of press release to give the Attraction a proper send off though. It would be a shame if it did not get it's due. Sure it is slow, loud and stinky, but it has provided some pretty great memories for the kids who actually got to drive a real car well before their 16h birthday.
