(3/19/15) Curious to know what the Tomorrowland Jet Pack Ride may look like? You can read through the actual patent Disney filed for the ride system starting back in 2008. https://www.google.com/patents/US7854660?dq=disney+jet++pack&hl=en&sa=X&ei=u7sJVfn9FoSvogStkILgCw&ved=0CCQQ6AEwAQ

According to the images, the two-person Jet Pack cars wont spin on a vertical axis, but instead may be able to pitch the riders forward quite a bit to experience a semi-flying style posture. There may also be some kind of 'Lift Off" effect sequence that happens at the start of ever ride, where the Jet Packs could use smoke / fog, lights and sound effects to simulate a rocket style lift-off sequence.


LOL, I sent them that link yesterday when they posted their article! I am very excited to see a new version of the rockets and I hope they do come state side.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Doesn't sound to comfortable for men with its whole Acrophobia-esque style of standing up with no floor. Still looks pretty cool though and a step up from the ride at all the other Disney parks.
Still confused about why vekomas headquarters hasn't been burnt down by an angry mob of enthusiasts

Donkeys are my way of life!

Maybe they'll sell Disney-themed athletic cups as a tie-in product.

I bet jet packs will be pretty prevalent in the new Tomorrowland movie. Making people want to ride this even more. :)

I think it would be fun if Shanghai got a Guardians of Galaxy ride at some point, since HK is getting Iron Man.

:lol:

I have the feeling they will make it still like a "seat" and the rider's legs will dangle.
Then more visitors will be able to ride it, rather than having to stand up, sort of.

We'll find out, soon enough. :mickey:

Yeah, from the drawing, it does look like the riders are in some kind of seated position.

I agree. It will probably be bench, with 2 "Jet Packs" attached to the back, lol. Or maybe half will be sitting and the other half standing.
