There's the sky ride that Judy and Nick took, too. But I doubt that kind of attraction is being considered.

I've been wondering if we'd ever see the flight of passage ride system used anywhere else in the future, not sure if the height requirement of FOP fits for Zootopia but I'm sure there is some exciting potential for that system somewhere in the future.

^ I feel like the Millennium Falcon ride is going to be that system but on a slightly smaller scale since they'll be 6-person (?) cockpits.

^ This could be done like the front of the train that Judy rides to Zootopia,
going through all the eco-systems there as well.

Damn, that reminds me of an original idea they had for the Japan Pavilion at EPCOT.
Riding a Bullet Train through the countryside, with multi-screen projections.
(See below)

Or it could be a trackless vehicle ride system too, since Disney's getting
so good at using it lately, for large scale attractions. (See Galaxy's Edge & Beauty/Beast)

How long until the rumors start in full force about this being dropped into Rafiki's Planet Watch at Animal Kingdom?

But seriously this can be great fun and I'm glad to see the continuing investment in all Disney Parks Worldwide right now! Hopefully original blue-sky park ideas can return to fashion in 10-15 years for the parks.

p.s.

It appears more and more, that for us, it will be 2025 to see all 3 Disney Asia Park Resorts.

It's six years away. But it'll be worth it when we finally go.

With everything built and open. And during the Christmas Season, too. Jingle! :mickey:

Nice to see Zootopia get it's own land, what a great movie. Very glad to see them to get a unique land. Really impressed by some of the design work in that park from the video and pictures I have seen. I could easily see the general layout of Cars Land being the general basis of Zootopia, good call. Generally speaking, would love to see a Slinky Dog Dash appear in the other parks that feature a TSL land.
