I just found this, posted at Screamscape.com .....

 

(3/19/15) Curious to know what the Tomorrowland Jet Pack Ride may look like? You can read through the actual patent Disney filed for the ride system starting back in 2008. https://www.google.com/patents/US7854660?dq=disney+jet++pack&hl=en&sa=X&ei=u7sJVfn9FoSvogStkILgCw&ved=0CCQQ6AEwAQ

 

According to the images, the two-person Jet Pack cars wont spin on a vertical axis, but instead may be able to pitch the riders forward quite a bit to experience a semi-flying style posture. There may also be some kind of 'Lift Off" effect sequence that happens at the start of ever ride, where the Jet Packs could use smoke / fog, lights and sound effects to simulate a rocket style lift-off sequence.

 

LOL, I sent them that link yesterday when they posted their article! I am very excited to see a new version of the rockets and I hope they do come state side.

Doesn't sound to comfortable for men with its whole Acrophobia-esque style of standing up with no floor. Still looks pretty cool though and a step up from the ride at all the other Disney parks.

 

Maybe they'll sell Disney-themed athletic cups as a tie-in product.

I have the feeling they will make it still like a "seat" and the rider's legs will dangle.

Then more visitors will be able to ride it, rather than having to stand up, sort of.

 

We'll find out, soon enough.

Yeah, from the drawing, it does look like the riders are in some kind of seated position.

I think it would be fun if Shanghai got a Guardians of Galaxy ride at some point, since HK is getting Iron Man.

 

I'm sure that Disney is evaluating every IP in relation to its popularity and familiarity in China.

^ That's why I'm personally not planning to go there until "maybe" 2020.* Let everything settle in, and work out the bumps and squeaks (sorry Mickey) in the resort. They might have even added another attraction by then, too. And I just remembered, HKDL won't be opening their Iron Man Experience until 2017. And then, there's all that stuff going on around TDLR...

 

 

 

*Unless TPR goes there before I do, lol.

I will swear this up and down until I'm proven wrong, but The Iron Man Experience is going to be the old Body Wars simulators with a new film.

I agree with a previous poster and will probably go around 2020. I mean, HKDL wasn't exactly amazing when it first opened up either. There were not enough rides and TOO MANY PEOPLE.

 

I know for sure it will be full and crowded every day for at least a few years after opening.

 

I'm very interested to see what it will be like with the China-copy park right next to SDL. It's said to be even bigger than Disney.

 

I'm super excited to see all the new stuff they'll be doing!

Put this ontop of the old Rocket Rods platform, and Tomorrowland instantly has a new popular thrill ride.
