With fans spanning all generations, many of us remember different aspects of the parks and have strong memories that will never die. What attraction(s) do you miss the most and why?
I'll start with a few of mine:
1. People Mover -- I know, I know... it's a simple ride with an up in the sky view of tomorrowland, but that's what I loved. The simplicity of it. There's no story, no theme... it's just cool to see moving on the tracks overhead and it's cooler to be sitting on it to rest your feet. There are people who might not be able to enjoy certain attractions and it's great when they can at least get a peak. I wasn't too big on the TRON part but once I finally saw the movie, it was the coolest thing ever. I want this attraction back in the park more than anything.
It was fun to ride a ride and just chat with friends. hehe... not that we could't do that waiting for a ride, but it's different when you're on a ride.
2. Captain EO -- Still to this very day, my favorite 3D movie ever. George Lucas at his prime along with Francis Ford Coppola and... well....Michael Jackson before he went crazy. Great entertainment and definitely higher rewatch value over 'Honey I shrunk the audience'.
I'm not asking for this to return to theaters, but I'd like a DVD and some action figures released!
3. Skyway -- I remember when my friends and I were getting ready to get on. The cast member says "last one on likes New Kids on the Block!" Oh man, we never raced so hard to get on a ride ever. It sucks because I was the last one on.
Anyway... I do love the ride. Like the People Mover, it was a peaceful ride with fantastic views. I just love that. Especially now with the park so crowded, to get away from all of that in some way or another would be even more worth while today than it was a decade or two ago.
I understand the logistics of the ride never coming back, but I still miss it and have fond memories. At least the San Diego Zoo still has theirs... too bad the views aren't as terrific.
