Tag: Simulator Attraction
Now the US versions of the original attraction have closed, here is an edit that was six months in the making.
Start way back with the history of attempting to use a motion base as an attraction, then see the developing relationship between George Lucas and Michael Eisner. Follow the ride planning, with a full concept and construction section for both parks. See the Disneyland opening, and changes added over the years. Next see the original Disney-MGM exteriors and also changes made over the years. This is followed by a full tour of the Disney’s Hollywood Studios exterior as it was before closing and a look at the differences to the preshow and boarding area layout. The take a full look at the Disneyland queue and preshow areas, again just before closing, shot by Chris Bales.
Next is the full multi camera, mostly tripod shot preshow in both the lower and upper rooms. All droids, Starspeeder effects, video wall, details, everything – both the R2D2/C3P0 and GT-4T and GT-9T preshows are shown in full from multiple angles, with source audio. Wander through the line taking in the details, arrive at load and watch the overhead monitor as your flight to the moon of Endor is prepared, followed by the safety video – again tripod shot with source audio. Next walk into your speeder for a split screen full ride using source ride film and incabin coverage of REX, the side video screen and the in-cabin effects. This is set to a new stereo source mix of the ride audio, remixed to bring the score forward more and with added incabin audio effects to sound just like the attraction did.
Finally, exit the Disneyland ride and walk into the store, then exit the Orlando version and walk into the store too. Finally, take a look at both closed attractions as the adventure gets ready to continue.
65 minutes long. Enjoy!

Go back in time 65 million years, or to the mid 90`s to see how Animal Kingdoms opening E Tickets developed and how the indoor EMV attraction came from an outdoor family ride. After a full concepts and construction section, learn the story to the ride with a lot of story and ride details often missed by guests. Then it`s on to a time travel trip circa 1998 for a recreation of the original Countdown to Extinction, with multi camera video including long missing visual effects and the original audio narration that was changed at park opening. See the changes made over the years, then take a modern day trip on Dinosuar including a look at the Rotunda show, full preshow with ALD audio, a look around the research facility and finally a full ride with multi camera video and an induction / clean live audio track. 33 minutes.
It`s fast. It`s a blast. It`s in the past!

Go back to 1978 to see the origins of EPCOTs Space pavilion. See how Journeys in Space evolved, and how it was nearly built twice. See the Horizon connection, how Horizons nearly stayed with us and then how the building itself nearly stayed, and then see Mission: Space be announced, built and finally dedicated.
