Wow! Ok, well I do believe if the Co would have spent the $$$ on the ride it would still be there.
The ride was fun overall and after a couple seasons I'm sure they would have worked out the bugs and the lines would have gotten shorter.
The Rods and the NEW Tomorrowland really were the first warning sign of the things to come.
They were the first true victims of the Pressler era at the park.
I also had some issues with the ride design,
The 5 seat configuration was a bad idea, and if you've worked in a theme park you know even numbers are better. Should have been 4 or even better 6.
The queue entrance was to far away from the attraction, makes for a whole lot of confusion when dealing with the GP.
The queue was too dark, people can't stand for 2+ hours in an area that dark without becoming drowsy. Drowsy=moody and moody people are irritable, irritable people in a small space for long time = BAD.
I do miss the ride, in the two short years the ride operated it became part of Tomorrowland, the beeping the buzzing and humming was all about a world in motion which is what TL is all about.
The ride was fun, especially in the front.
