As far as I know it's not a flyer. Standard on-the-track ride system with a few new ideas. If they work.Probably, as soon as more details emerge. At the moment, all we know is concept art. And that it might be a new load/unload system, flying coaster style by Vekoma, and apparently, the current Energy building will be the queue, with the new ride being built behind it.
Sure, but museums aren't competing with Universal.
In 2016, US parks did 47.3 million. The Smithsonian Institution did 30.2 million. That's pretty close, considering the SI is in DC and US has Disney to draw people down to see it...Bingo.
Research? I thought they were just growing food for The Fishtank Restaurant...At least The Land is actually a functional whatsit.. they actually are doing the research/practice they talk about, and it stands out as the one pavilion (at least to me) that has managed to continue with it's purpose and actually live up to it's promise.

But I've been wrong before.
Obviously I can't say how I know, but it's not from websites. But yes, time will tell.Yeah, I know that's the scuttlebutt around here, but some of the coaster enthusiast sites I've been browsing seem pretty convinced the new Vekoma is for Disney, and specifically, this attraction. I guess we'll find out.
Vekoma, Tacoma... What's Disney got against B&M???Yeah, I know that's the scuttlebutt around here, but some of the coaster enthusiast sites I've been browsing seem pretty convinced the new Vekoma is for Disney, and specifically, this attraction. I guess we'll find out.
Their inverteds can be put in a small footprint, like Batman at 6FoG...Ironically, the load/unload tech that Vekoma is testing, started as a B&M patent, that they purchased.
Does B&M do any small footprint rides like that? I know them for like, Talon, Great Bear, Hydra, Mantis, etc.
The original Batman inverted coasters are honestly still some of the most bang for you buck coasters out there. Almost unbelievable power...itty bitty footprint.
Definitely true. Thankfully you can get just as much power (more actually) out of launched inverted (or otherwise) coaster as you can with a lift hill. B&M is a great company and I would love it if Disney would utilize their smooth, comfortable ride tech in some future E ticket ride. I have no idea why they don't.yep.. but those still have an 85 foot drop.. I wonder if Disney would build anything that tall? They seem much more into lims and multiple lift stages since RnRC went in.
As we've seen at Busch Gardens and other parks, B&M doesn't have any issues with theming, so I don't get the reference...
So will this be a "clever" 80's nostalgia love fest? I fear for the "Epcot story" they are hinting at.
