    I havent heard this one yet. All I see are the droid parts. Is there an artifact of the past up there I'm missing?

    Cool Re: Does anyone remember riding adventure through inner space?

    I well remember my first parent-free visit in 1982 when my head was...open...to the idea of shrinking into an atom. Especially remember the speeding electrons all around, and the voice of Paul Frees (I thought it was Orson Wells at the time) who was all over the park, seemingly everywhere. I'd love to see a new approach to the still valid idea of microscopic exploration, and I'd love to ride a time machine back for another go through ATIS. However, if it existed now in it's form of the time, it would be very dated.

    A bientot.

    It's not there any longer, so I should have written what Was in the basket conveyor.
    There were once a miniature Atomobile in one of the baskets.
    I think they removed it with one of the dust cleanings?
    I wish that they would replace it.

    We got stuck once in pitch darkness. It was fun for a few minutes but after about 15 I started to get scared. It was a stupid ride but you always had to ride it.

    No... I really wish I could have.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Does anyone remember riding adventure through inner space?

    I remember going on it as a child and completely bought into the shrinking.

    However the folks tell me that I went on it all by myself at least once or twice.

    Re: Does anyone remember riding adventure through inner space?

    I was very young so I don't remember much. I remember the large snowflakes and the part in the queue where they had you could supposedly see people on the ride and they were very small. I thought it was real.

    Re: Does anyone remember riding adventure through inner space?

    I never got to experience, HISTA, but my mother did, and it always amazes me how the same few memories are always brought up - the snowflakes, the miniature atommobiles, and the giant eye. Guess some images stick more than others.

    Also, the letters and numbers on those baskets are the initials and birthdates of the imagineers who worked on them. David Mumford pointed his out to me once. As I recall his is DM2556.

    I loved this ride also. I do miss the old Tomorrowland, ATIS, Skyway, Peoplemover, America Sings.

    Re: Does anyone remember riding adventure through inner space?

    Yes indeed...I remember going on it as a child and being scared that we were being shrunk into the little people you could see on the outside looking into the microscope in the queue. Yep, snowflakes and the Eyeball at the end with the deep voice of Paul Frees is what sticks in my head most about it.

    Re: Does anyone remember riding adventure through inner space?

    I remember it, though I was really young at the time. There never was too long of a line for it, so I always rode it to kill some time before the next America the Beautiful show. That damn eyeball in it always creeped me out.
    Growing older is manditory
    Growing up is however, optional
