Oh, WOW. I love this. I had completely forgotten some elements of this ride, and the memories came flooding back. Was that much of it in pitch black? I didn't remember that part, but I guess it wouldn't be surprising. It must have been a labor of love for the person who created this video. Amazing.
I bought this on DVD a few years ago. Amazingly well done and looks great on the big screen at home.
Also bought the ATIS disc from Extinct Attractions (which I guess is sorta contraband now). Has some cool backstory and interviews with Imagineer X Atencio and Steve Wesson (the guy who made the digital simulation).
One of my favorite videos ever. Having been on this many many times as a child, I can attest to its accuracy. Just wish there were more extinct attractions out there on the web that have been recreated with this kind of expert, painstaking work.
