Rocket Rods

One of the most popular Tomorrowland attractions at Disneyland Park that didn’t last long was Rocket Rods. The ride vehicle contained five seats. One in the front row, one in the second row, one in the third row, and two together in the back row.

This ride replaced the PeopleMover and it was opened in  November 1998. Throughout it’s time, it seemed to be broken down frequently. The line was always long, but it was worth the wait. The ride closed it’s doors in April 2001.

Two months after Disney’s California Adventure opened.

Note: I have NO photos for this attraction!!
