Prepare for liftoff with jet-pack technology that lets you swoop and sweep high above the skies of Tomorrowland. If you’ve ever dreamed of flying solo, the future of transportation has arrived—this astro-adventure will leave you breathless!
Welcome to the Jet Packs Complex, a cutting edge, sci-fi-inspired world where people dance, float and sail through the air. Two at a time, fledgling sky pilots don rocket-powered backpacks connected to a giant orb via 16 mechanical arms.
Hold tight as you take off into a rapid series of hair-raising revolutions—hand-held controls help regulate the height. This centrally spinning sphere levitates riders several stories off the ground for a one-of-a-kind Rocketeer experience you won’t want to miss!
Walt Disney’s long affiliation with aviation dates back to the Astro Jets, a Disneyland attraction from 1956, now called Astro Orbitor. But it was his lasting fascination with science, innovation and the challenge of outer space that ultimately led to the creation of Tomorrowland and its “Atomic Age” adventures.
Thanks to the popularity of the original Astro Jets, fans have been flying high ever since. In 1971, a similar ride opened at Magic Kingdom park in Walt Disney World Resort as well as at Tokyo Disneyland in 1983.
Disneyland Paris features a redesigned version that opened in 1992 at “Discoveryland,” an updated iteration of Tomorrowland. Now, 60 years later, Walt’s hope and optimism for the future continues to be expressed in the Tomorrowland attractions at Disney theme parks around the world—including the all-new Jet Packs, making its out-of-this-otherworldly premiere at Shanghai Disneyland!
