    LOL! Sad that they sell Mexican food by the Zeyphr. Multiple ride closures from the wind.

    I thought it was. o.o But, I could be mistaken. They jsut use 'derail' a lot so I assumed there was a rail.

    The Golden Zephyr is fun...

    I ride the Gadget Go Coaster! (But I'm one of the few that likes Toontown AND Innoventions...)

    Jungle Cruise is on a track . . . well, a submerged rail. If the water level is too high, then yes, it can derail. (Gee, to think I talked about valuing the magic in another thread)

    If they are, the skippers are way too careless manuvering around sweitzer falls.

    The skippers are good, but not THAT good. It's hard to drive a boat facing backwards. :-D

    You can really tell near the Skull Canoe as the boat smacks the rail as it goes throught the s-curve there. I don't think anyone slows down nearly as much as they should. I never did.

    The line for Pooh is all out side which would making waiting to ride kind of a pain. Never knew why they would not build some sort of covering.

    I'd like to try Autopia in the driving rain. Maybe I could actually get the wheels to break loose in a 12 mph drift!

    No, you wouldn't. Trust me on that one. Unless you like the sensation of driving a tub around, as there is no way for the water to get out of the bench seat once it is in there.

    As for breaking lose... You can get the tires to spin, but no drift. But they only part that I really remember being able doing this was the transition to the off road section on the red track. That little bump up hill and the weird change in the ground texture kinda made the wheels spin for some cars. Oh, and its 6.5 mph.

    Pooh closes in heavy rain. It can operate in light, but as the track is somewhat outside it runs numerous risks if operated on the rain (slipping mostly).
