TRON Ride FINALLY Coming to WDW?
« on: July 10, 2017, 07:57:07 PM »
Saw this link come past my FB feed today. It made me grin and swear simultaneously. When I saw this ride go into Bejing I was like "Why not Orlando?"

Fingers Crossed. If this does come to WDW I WILL be there opening day.

Man THAT is cool. Do you work for WDW? One of my first jobs ever was working the snack bar below the spaceship ride in Tomorrow Land back in '84. Keep us posted if you get any inside intel on the forthcoming ride.

No, I have a friend that hopefully will get me in as it's built.  I love to watch and examine as they finish the rides.  In the past I have redone the older rides in Tampa, when electronic parts fail and can no longer be had, and upgraded the electronics.  I doubt it will have design problems, with all the great technology we now have available.

Is it coming to Orlando or are we going to get F*cked?

If it did it would be huge.

Ha! I had hair back then, though they made me cut in above the ear to get the job at the time.
