    I guess this means No more giant Cell Phone? I loved that phone. We called mom from it. Glad I got a picture of sis with it.

    I think there are not immediate plans for the attraction, save for the rumors of "Project Gemini" (aka the updating of many of FW's signature attractions to coincide with Disneyland's 50th Anniversary). Rumors have swirled about SSE being gutted and a new attraction called "Time Racers" being added. However, there is still nothing more than rumor and speculation in that regard.

    If anyone has info to the contrary, I would love to get an update!!

    Actually that part of "Product Gemini" has been discarded. The current ride tracks design is integral to the structure and can't be gutted. So it looks like a higer speed thrill ride won't happen.
