    No way!! I miss the PeopleMover! The TTA is one of my favorite things to ride at MK. It's such a nice way to take a break from the day, there's never a line longer than a couple of minutes and you can't beat the view.

    seems like your trying to pick a fight with our bring back the people mover petition guy? At any rate, I dont want the people mover specifically back, I want something on the track. Something that lasts longer then the Rocket Rods.

    :thumbsup2 haha! *siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh*

    I swear, I have no experience with the peoplemover, but now if they ever DO bring it back I will ride it. And all I'll be thinking about is the headache its causing me all over these boards! :rolleyes2

    *we* didn't personally take away the peoplemover, why do we have to suffer? ;)

    Yes I Austinosphere sign the petition to not bring back the people mover.

    While you're at it let's sign a petition to not bring other rides that people liked as a kid but would be a miserable FAIL to even consider.

    I am the fifth person to sign.

    I think we need a keelboats petition and then while we are at it we should get a bootstrapper petition and please I do not remember Captain Eo so bring that back also.:yay:

    I have contacted the moderator about an email I got from this petition site and was hoping it could be handled quietly. The email had a link to a site and I went there because it was an IQ challenge from someone I think is on the board. It turned out to be a 6 step site and scam that gathers personal info for resell to mailing lists.

    I am a sweepstaker and have a tiny board with data. so here goes what a 6 step site is and it has other names. The victim goes to the site, usually to win a prize, and enters their info like name, address, age, and phone number. The site now has a live active email address with information and can sell that to a mailing list that wants live accounts that might respond to their offers.

    The victim then is on another page and must add info or decline an offer such as joining a newsletter. In the site I went to they had me wait for an email that never came then when I clicked the link that says "if the email does not come click here" (paraphrased that) I get a pop up advertisement and thus now have two window open with cookies. The 6-step site keeps the victim going with new offers to decline, emails that never come, more info needed and pop ups.

    I gave them only my name and email and phone number and that is public knowledge thanks to former sites I have visited. If you do not believe me then make up a throw away email and sign the petition then wait for that account to get junk mail.

    I will probably get banned for making trouble but what I say is the truth. I do not think the original poster knew about this scheme.

    The peoplemover was not really a ride(no physical sensation except it was bumpy). There is no chance it will be brought back.

    The logical thing would be to bring back the Rocket Rods and make it as originally planned. They had lost funding during producing it and that was the problem. It would've had banks and therefore wouldn't need to slow down before turns. (see the page on wikipedia)

    That would have been great DisneyMan, too bad they lost the funding. :( When the Rocket Rods were fast they were great but the slowing down all the time sucked. :( I remember waiting in that god awful line (one of my first trips to DL ever) and then getting to the end and the CMs "let" someone cut in front of us, they came from the end of the line yelling "our group is up there" and low and behold, NO group......I said something to the CM about it and apparently they didn't like it. There was one of their group straggling way behind and on his way (pushing like crazy) to catch up to his group he "accidentally" fell into, pulled my hair, pushed me and spilled his drink on me, all at the same time. :( I have bad memories of that ride......lol
