Well, as someone who has lived in the OC most of his life, lemme tell you, an omnimover is one of the most efficient ride vehicles. Buzz is brand new, and on one of the busiest days I've ever seen in the park, I got on in less than 20 minutes. Just the same, I was never able to walk right on ATIS, even as it passed the 15 year old mark.Originally Posted by Mr Snappy
Built when it was, it was one of the first Disney rides to really have a queue that begins the story. It was incredibly immersive. And your eyes are immediately drawn to the Mighty Microscope, and the Atom Mobiles shrinking before your eyes. It was an incredibly convincing illusion, and prepared you for the amajing adventure you were about to take.
Yes, it could have stood for some updated special effects, just like Matterhorn, PotC, HM, and others have gotten. Heck, look how often Jungle Cruise has been expanded and updated. Compare that to Star Tours, which also hasn't been upgraded in over 15 years, and the general cry for a new film for that attraction. It's not an inherently bad ride, it just needs a little TLC, and the same was true of ATIS.
