Disney filed patents for an all-new roller coaster and all new technology! It is described as a “Roller Coaster with Passenger Compartment Motion Powered Through Stored Onboard Energy” “The ride would be rolling under gravity along a track defining a ride path. Includes a chassis coupled to the track to roll on one or more surfaces of the track.” -US Patent Office
This could mean the addition of a whole new coaster at the Disney Parks or an upgrade to current rides within an existing park.
