My idea was to have vehicles that ran on an automotive-type chassis but gave all outward appearances of a train. You could have run them right down the backstage roads without really getting in the way of the park operations. Hearing that they will be elevated, however, makes it seem like they might be real trains. At least complicated enough that they need their own specialized "track", maybe like a Test Track track.I have no proof of this, but I'm guessing that they won't actually be "trains", anyway. I picture vehicles like Spidey, or Dinosaur, all chained together, encased in a train car shell. This would give each separate "car" freedom of movement that a train wouldn't give... And allow for hightened sensation as the train "flies" along the countryside. Heck, there could even be more than one program, so that not every ride was the same. When all you have are motion simulators and screens, you could vary the journey (a la Star Tours).
I'd love for whylightbulb to give me a "hot" or "cold" on this idea... :drevil:
Obviously if it weren't really a linear "train", there would be many ways to add more vehicles to the track.
