    HM And Buzz Ride system

    Does anyone know where I could get information on how the omnimover ride system for Haunted Mansion and Buzz Lightyear works. I am curious at the mechanical aspect of it. I thought I had seen a patent for it somewhere in the past but I can not seem to find it.

    HM is def. Omni mover...but I not sure about Buzz.
    I'm to busy trying to save the galaxy to look down (so I could be wrong)
    but I'm sure Buzz isn't on the system (once again..could be wrong)

    I believe doombuggies.com has related materials on the Omni Mover.

    If I'm correct, Buzz Lightyear was the first omnimover system to be built in the United States in decades, right?...
