Wow!!! I totally didn't know this was happening at DLP!! They have been advertising it on British tv, but I just thought it was one of the many promotions to entice the public over there. I think it looks amazing! Will need to get saving for A trip near Christmas lol

I still get scared just thinking of how long the lines for those 3 rides are going to be! Crush Coaster (with its 700pph capacity) gets huge lines, so imagine for RC Racer and the Parachute drop.
Look at at this way, if park attendaence increases by 10% and the park has added 20% more rides, theoretically lines should decrease. In the end, it is better to add two low capacity rides versus nothing. We know adding nothing will not decrease wait times.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge! Original enough to not steal someone else's quote as a signature

EDIT: Also welcome to TPR!
I agree, but that itself is strange, or at leat it is if they use the layout of the road in the picture. It seems like it must be for some attraction, but I wonder what it is for. Also, is the Army man theming just for parachute drop? Cause if it is the same as the DCA version its not a particularly interesting or long ride.
Ready to get a private tour of the tower before the Walt Disney Studios park open? Well, this is your chance. Disney has started to offer a new tour inside and around the Tower of Terror attraction. The first test tours have just finished. The weekend of 27-28 march are booked for press events but as of April guests can book the tour for themselves and their friends. The tour will only take place during the weekends and reservations need to be made in advance. Guest who made a reservation will then be let into the park about 1 hour before opening to go on the tour.
The tour will take about 50 minutes where you will be invited in the Tower of Terror to learn some of its secrets. Guests will be guided through and around the building, though the gardens, inside the building to the lobby, the library and the basement where they will learn about the attractions and the different visited location. Only “on stage” visits are included for this tour. There will be no backstage view of the attraction.
At the end of the 50 minute tour guest who want to ride the attraction will have the chance to do so. This will be one of the first rides of the day, just after the the test runs.
The tour will cost 12 Euro and is limited to 10 people. Unfortunately to tour is only offered in French and will not be offered in English at this time. If a success this might change in the future. The tour is in a test face and changed could apply.
