Think "Dumbo" in a rocket, instead of an elephant.


Basically the old Rocket Jets ride with a re-skin ... at ground level and all but surrounded by tall structures, making the ride itself rather underwhelming.

The loading platform for Rocket Jets was already 20 feet up, nearly doubling the overall height you reached on the ride; that made it a lot more thrilling. Unfortunately the platform they were on couldn't take the weight of the Astro Orbitor ride mechanism.

This one is slightly more exciting than Dumbo, just because the tilt of the rockets makes it feel like you could fall out.
