I'm scared to death of that ride. I never had the opportunity to ride it. I've seen videos of the ride. I have a huge fear of being under water like that, at least huge open water. I'm a surfer, I don't get it either.
I think they are gone now too.. I watched a thing about them on Discovery Channel. The designers talked about how they were so superior to Disney's version... HAH. Just because the fish were real... Where's the fun in that?
I think that was Edmonton Mall that had a sub type attraction, and I don't it was the same, but maybe a walkthrough...Mall of America has a Camp Snoopy I believe,
Both those malls have a camp snoopy, but more on topic:
It was the Edmonton mall that had the Submarine Ride, or rather has. I believe it is still there. Even though, there is no way I can compare it to the Submarine Voyage at Disneyland, because I have never been to Cannada, let alone the West Edmonton Mall (the largest mall in the world!).
Sydney, Australia ... where there is no Magic Kingdom :(
Re: Submarine Voyage...
It was my strongest memory from my 1987 visit (unless someone told me I never went on it, then my memory is completely stuffed).
As an 8 year-old, it was the coolest thing the world had ever produced. I was underwater! IN Disneyland! A very disappointed 26 year old learned they were no longer there last year, so I spent the entire trip in the bath tub trying to recreate the sensation.
Actually, the return of the subs next year is the entire reason California is back on the itinerary for 2008. It is pricey to get from here to there, and WDW would probably serve me well. But it is my dream to return to an enchanted kingdom under the sea (hmm...A Little Mermaid theme could have been good too...) and I can't wait to check it out. As a result, 2008 will be the Loomis Year of Disney Madness simply so I can cram myself into a claustrophobic atmosphere.
Most. Exciting. New. Ride. Ever.
