The topic title, have I missed something about a name change? When I visited in February it was called Walt Disney Studios Park?
No, you didn't miss anything. I'm just being a klutz today. :p

I forgive you <3

I can't believe how much work they're doing to the RnR building, like it was said before, I thought it would be a budget retheme!

i personally think this is a good thing, change the look, make it more modern.
people will otherwise still think about RnR. im hoping the theming in the showbuilding will be good, hoping for the same immersion like Tron.

Super excited to see what studios will look like in a few months. when you can see the shape of the lake and the mountains and stuff... :D

Do we know if they’re planning new trains on this? Would make sense as they did on Space Mountain.

I'm sure I read somewhere that they're keeping the same trains, but I may be wrong.

I know that for at least the last few months of RnRC's operation, one of the five trains was not on the circuit and - pure speculation on my part here - I would guess they were using that train to experiment and try out ideas for the re-theme.

I mean if they're taking the effort to rebuild half of the building I wouldn't be shocked if we saw new trains too?

I'm sure I read that they are replacing the Zero Cars and just repainting the rest of the trains.

on french forums, the debat about the trains being replaced is very alive.
Some says they have good sources saying the old ones would stay, having just the body remade to fit the new theme.

IMO, I found this affirmation to be odd. Ok, RnRc aged quite well for an 18 years old Vekoma (and running every day by the way !)... Maybe frome the mechanics point of view, the trains are in a rather good shape.
But, I can't help myself thinking it would make sense to have new ones. Of course, comfort is a main point. But comfort will always fit in the theme ! I mean, it's pretty obvious it will be themed after Iron Man, and therefore, Stark Industries. Stark Industries, in the Marvel Lore, is way ahead of its concurrent in technology. Wouldn't make sense to have a vehicule rough as f*** !

Then comes the money point. One one hand, it might be cheapier just to refurbish the olds Soundtrackets ... and god knows DLP loves the cheap solutions. But in the other hand, it would be a saving money thing to have the same spare pieces for both HyperSpace mountain and the Iron Man Coaster, whatever it will be called !
