Can they run the RR backwards? Have they ever done so with guests? Yes to both. Skip to 6:57 in this video by @marni1971

Seeing the trees in the hub and other location in Magic Kingdom during footage really kept the "Park" feeling in the Magic Kingdom Park. The trees actually made the park more special.

As long as you're here with your Carnac hat on -- anyone old enough to even get that reference? -- do you have any indication at this time that there is any thought being given to actually closing the Speedway vs. any of the proposals to adjust/retheme/etc.?
May a nearsighted sand flea suck syrup off your short stack.

The Speedway for my kids has been a right-of-passage, when they finally grow to 52+ inches tall and are able to drive the car by themselves.

But Tomorrowland Speedway it is still becoming Tron themed, right too?:confused:
Unclear at this point.
It’s still the plan to overlay, not remove.

Not sure why there would be much passion on the board for a Tron-themed overlay for the speedway. The idea of two Tron themed rides next to each doesn’t make much sense unless they plan to rename Tomorrowland to Tron Land (yuck). As well, this would also put an awful lot of capital and space in service to a relatively weak IP.

Most of us want the speedway to be updated to a tron-like aesthetic not necessarily a Tron-Branded Speedway.
