Even if it didn't break down, even if it were faster, even if they added something to look at. Rocket Rods was not a thrilling ride. The people mover track is flat flat flat. No dips, no drops, only one loop.
Try something we have discussed earlier on these boards. Either bring back people mover or add the Ipods (Incredibles).
It was a bad attraction. If you never went on it you would not understand. It had a long wait for a attraction that would take off....stop....take off....stop....go slow.....pick up speed....then stop.....go slow.....take off.....then go really slow again.
The attraction helped 5 per car which was a bad idea, but then with out putting major money into the attraction it was just a fast and slow peoplemover. It never got close to what it was expected to do.
Never cared much for the Rocket Rods.
The Peoplemover was a relaxing tour of Tomorrowland and Rocket Rods turned it into a frantic herky-jerky race. No thanks. Square peg in a round hole IMO; a bad fit all the way around.
Im talking about a complete new track built to handle that type of ride.
Then it should be a roller coaster. I agree with the comment of no dips, etc. And if they want to build another one, bring the Aerosmith ride here from MGM @ WDW! No on the rocket rods. We waited over an hour and it just wasn't great.
I would like to see an updated version of the People Mover put back. But I do think if they would have done the Rocket Rods correctly in the first place, it could have been a hit. If they would have completely redone the track with banked turns and better cars. To make it a 5 seater in the configuration that they did was very strange. It failed because of the cost cutting. I actually liked the concept, but the ride as it was, wasn't worth the 1 or 2 hour wait in line.

While I disliked the noise the Rocket Rods inflicted upon the rest of Tomorrowland, I actually enjoyed the ride itself, although not enough to wait in line more than ten minutes or so. Having said that, I think they should not bring them back, but bring back an updated version of the Peoplemover instead.
