    Re: New Star Wars attraction patent

    This patent looks to be quite adaptable, and could be used almost anywhere. Especially when you combine it with older Disney patents covering vehicle systems and track interfaces.

    First thought that popped into my head was the DL Peoplemover track - they can use the existing Load and Unload and the exposed trackage just like it was for Rocket Rods, and put their mini-theater setup anywhere along the track route or add an extension. Like a new show building behind Space Mountain and over the parade float day parking.

    They would need to add a curtain or door to cut the sight-lines from the track, or that would break the fourth wall real quick. But you don't patent a curtain.

    This looks identical to the plans for Ratatouille at WDSP

    This would allow more show scenes along the limited people mover track. It makes a lot more sense to put in something like this since it would allow for a seemingly long ride on a short track.

    Good eye! You appear to be spot on.

    There was another patent posted here a few months ago that involved some airplanes. Everyone suspected a planes tie-in, but I'd guess the planes were a misdirect. Pop an x-wing in there instead. Aside from being a Jedi, piloting an x-wing is probably every fan's dream.

    Yes you're right it appears kinda like a modern omnimover type system...in the adaptability sense
