    Question PeopleMovers or Rocket Rods???

    Al Lutz is saying that DL is considering bringing back the PeopleMovers which I think is a beastly idea. In my opinion, they should pay the extra cost to revamp the track and make it Rocket Rod friendly. The PeopleMovers were a slow, tour-type attraction. Not much fun. But if Rocket Rods had the right track, oh, the potential for some more growth in Tomorrowland. Anyone agree? Disagree?

    I liked both attractions. I suspect it would be easier for DL to bring back the Peoplemover since its track still hovers above DL.

    I think it's fair to say that Rocket Rods would cost more then a little bit extra to return

    "and consider this dismaying observation" it would require a large que (with no windows and no doors) which would produce another ride witha nightmare wait (which offers this chilling challenge, to find a way OUT) hopefully they'd find a way to reduce the amount of breakdowns though (of course there's always MY way )

    PeopleMover - - I like the idea of the PeopleMover returning in the form of travel Pods from The Incredibles.

    If I want to go on something fast, I have Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, and the Matterhorn... I don't need a ride that has no themeing, no story, no imaginitive transporting queue, no scenery... Bring back the peoplemover and let me enjoy a nice peaceful ride above the hustle and bustle, so my feet can relax...

    BRING BACK THE PEOPLEMOVER (but re-imagined of course! )

    I never got a chance to ride the Rocket Rods, so I vote for them. The Fast Pass system could kill the long lines from the past.

    You can see video from it on several websites including DisneyForever.com, after you see it, you'll see why it was just flat out ugly, fast occasionally, and not very "cool" at all.

    How about a Peoplemover speed ride during the day that changes to a Rocket Rod speed ride at night?

    Peoplemover.....how could you even CONSIDER the other ride?

    Nothing better on a crowded day then to get on a moving bench that lasts 16 minutes, It was a very nice way to take a break and still enjoy a ride.

    I would clean it up, get better cars, and improve the enclosed parts with a complete re-do of the TRON part (as much as I love Tron, it is dated) I would leave the SM preview as well as Star Tour parts.

    Another idea is to take a stretch that is in the back portion and create a new tunnel with amazing effects, maybe like the atom effects of the old inner space ride?
