Other than the fact that its always braking down, and the long lines, its a fun ride, minus the slow-down on turns.

I completely agree. It had to slow down on turns because there wasnt enough money to bank the turns so that the car would be tilted a bit on its side. Had they just banked the turns, the cars wouldnt have had to slow down avery few seconds, therefore there would be less wear and tear on the brakes and tracks and therefore it wouldn;t have broken down. They spent more money fixing it than if they wouldve just backed the turns to begin with.

This ride had great possibilites. It could have been like a Californian version of Test Track over at Walt Disney World in Florida at Epcot, where the cars speed up to 60 mph and blast along a track raised up along the side of the building. But because they had to stop to turn, the cars never made it up to a reasonable speed and the thrills were minimal because of it.

I sincerely hope they bring this back, bank the turns, and rename it. "Rocket Rods" just got made fun of too much. I think they should rename it "Tomorrowland Rapid Transit Authority" to match with WDWs where they have "Tomorrowland Transit Authority."
