    Any motion up there would be good, compared to a dead, pointless track...

    At this point, I'd even dig something like the buzz cars. Something that the riders can swivel and turn at will. Give a slow ride a new dimension. Re-do the tunnels, maybe even give it an interactive effect like Buzz, where you can activate mecanisms along the route. Same speed as the peoplemover, no extra stress on the track, but a totally different experience.

    Of course, then they'd have to cut down a few branches...

    Well I think the whole problem is budget for them. I mean we all know Matt's spending the big bucks doing everything he can to add new rides. So I would venture the hassle of the people-mover track is under his radar. That's why I'm saying DON'T make it a ride, just make it a parade or show of some sorts.

    Heck, walk into the park and see what a hit 'Push' is. Put a couple talking robots up there, let them roam free on the track, talking to people at various points. They could yell at the people in line for Star Tours, Buzz, Astro Orbitor, and other places.

    Haha, I can see it now "In the future, science has allowed us to recreate people from simple dna strands. The government embraced this discovery, and started a top secret program in which the most influential political people of our past were re-created to form the most brilliant think-tank in all of time. They are 'The Undead Presidents'. Welcome to Tomorrow.

    ^Dramaqueen made a good point in her first post on this thread. I agree: I'd rather wait for something thats not a quick fix than have some junky thing up there that fails in a year.

    You know certains times during the day a bunch of cars run down the track, all with cool animatronic stuff.
    That sounds very interesting. I think it'd be cool if a PM Parade was like a transition between times in Tomorrowland. Like the transition between Space Mountain and RockIt Mountain, a parade at dusk could transform Tomorrowland into a more Rock&Roll, Lights, Music, exciting sort of Nightlife place. That would be really cool. It would almost be a Small World clock SUPERSIZED!
