    I got a great idea for Rocket Rods/People Mover!

    If Rocket Rods were ever to come back i have a great idea for it. Instead of slowing down right at a turn what the could do is have a metal pole thing that sticks out of the vehicle that attaches to a swivel on the roof of the thing. And than when it gets close to a turn the swivel changes around so you go sideways for a second and then you go straight again.

    Any Comments?

    Neither do I. Could you elaborate on your idea?

    That sounds incredibly dangerous.

    This is actually a pretty good idea.....sometimes when space probes are launched to Mars or other outer planets NASA sends the probes towards Venus first....Venus acts as a sort of poll to swing the probe back out towards Mars or what have you.

    Same principal.

    I still don't really understand this idea - and I think many are in the same boat.
    This 'metal pole' thing sounds dangerous. Maybe because I don't fully understand the concept of 'turning sideways' because of the pole.

    What would the "roof of the thing" be?

    That seems kinda scary. Like what if there was a glitch and you go careening off the edge?

    Is he essentially talking about two tracks maybe? One below and overhead the vehicles? I don't know...

    Ok...lets say you are on roller skates going as fast as you can and all of the sudden there is a 90 degree turn ahead.

    What would be more fun?

    Slowing down to make the 90 degree turn or reaching out and grabbing a poll to "swing" yourself in the right direction?

    Now I don't get it - What does a school have to do with it? Only Principals get sent into space?

    Could you draw a diagram?
