    rocket rods broke down so much that not many people experienced it.. =P

    ... but really, the peoplemover was such a nice attraction that let you relax and enjoy the place. i really can't wait until it returns, those empty tracks up there make me sad everytime i walk through tomorrowland... =(

    Same, I mean they can do a lot with the people mover, with everything that is going on in Tomorrowland these days, the ride would provide a great tour and relaxation attraction!

    Assuming that both attractions would manage to function equally consistently--in other words, assuming Rocket Rods didn't have to be closed again--I'd rather see the Rocket Rods up there.

    But my real preference would be something of a hybrid.

    What he said.

    If they found a way to make Rocket Rods efficient to the point where it's breakdowns will be minimized, I'd rather see Rocket Rods. They added more motion to Tomorrowland since they were fast and made the neat sounds. Also, they would look better at night too, providing they put the Neon on them.

    I doubt many people would say RR. I am in the Peoplemover Camp! It's a waste to have the track rotting away.

    Peoplemover would be my first choice. It really added something to the park, both as a kinetic visual "thing" to further the Tomorrowland concept and as a shockingly efficient method to take a lot of people out of the walkways for 10 minutes at a time. There are also too few quiet, abstract joys in the park now. I remember sitting on the one proper porch on Main Street and realizing that the Peoplemover was exactly that sort of relaxing experience but on a scale where thousands of people would think to actually experience.

    That said, I think that the Rocket Rods would also be a welcome re-addition so long as it was done properly this time. Besides the obvious down time issues, I felt really insulted that the powers that be decided that a cheap re-purpose of existing structures would be appropriate in any way. Even more so that they took out two of the best attractions in the park when making this new, far inferior one. And call me cynical but blinking red lights and a blast of air are things you use to entertain your cat. It would have been better to have not included these "elements" at all. The fact that someone didn't realize the giant middle finger that the company was raising to its fan base with this attraction makes me really very angry. As it was, it was basically a way of saying "here, you'll ride it anyways." Which, while true, is one of the worst attitudes that they can have - especially if it's glaringly obvious.

    To be fair, I do think they've learned their lesson from those years. But if we let them pass completely on just how bad those decisions were we'll likely see "Roller Coaster #5" in the near future.

    While I agree that much better, more elaborate effects could have been implemented, I gotta say, I enjoyed them at the time.
