    I sure miss them. I know they weren't that great, but it was still a wicked sweet ride!

    Wow! thanks for posting that I never got a chance to ride them. You know they actually look pretty cool what a shame that they had to close them.

    Bank the track. Bring them back!

    I didn't get a chance to ride them too.

    Looks like a faster ride would be better than any Incredibles pod ride that would come in as a replacement.

    Where would you put the queue, buddy?

    No, we need a casual, relaxing tour of TL again, so there will be less cranky people in the park.

    70 minute wait for a 2 minute ride...lame.

    I wouldn't mind if it went a little faster than the old PeopleMover, but if it's too fast, it will defeat the purpose of the track.

    I don't mind waiting over an hour for a short attraction if it was of E-ticket quality, but Rocket Rods most definitely was not an E-ticket attraction. I would classify it as a D-ticket attraction; I still can't believe I waited nearly 2 hours for it.

    OMG...I miss that ride! Too bad I waited 3 hours and sat in that car, in the front seat with a ton of flies, for almost an hour when it broke down!

    My mom saw the vid and thought it looked cool!

    Re: Rocket Rods

    What I dont understand is this mumbo jumbo about how a new ride vehicle would have to be enclosed... it looks like there is plenty of room all they need is the old people mover system with an Extreme Intrusion system
