    Thumbs up AtomMobiles.com

    I found a site recently on the Yesterland attraction Adventure Thru InnerSpace.

    It's a pretty cool site. The website creator, Steve, took a lot of care putting this together. And it's just great! Lots of images.

    The website dedicated to the Adventure through Inner Space is fantastic! There are very few sites that pay the due tribute to such great yesterland rides! Keep up the great work and it would be nice to see something for:

    The Subs
    The PeopleMover
    The Sky Way
    Country Bears
    Motor Boat Cruise
    Original Astro Orbiter

    I've never seen the DVD, myself, but there was a topic about it on the Snopes message boards and in a post on the second page snopes agrees with you:
    I just got the "Adventure Thru Inner Space" DVD today -- it's incredible! I can't believe someone spent all the time required to render a defunct ride in such detail. It's well worth the money if you're supremely nostalgic about ATIS.

    This is one of the ride I really *really* wish I could have rode back when it was around. Who knows, maybe I did and I just don't remember. Either way, it's such an awesome concept.

    ... not that Star Tours isn't bad. It is one of my favorites after all.

    Given the current state of Tomorrowland, it might not be a bad idea to put kiosks all over the place and have guests "ride" the Adventures Thru Inner Space.

    btw - Gemini, what was your old SN on mouseplanet before you changed it?
    Disneyland allows me to escape the everyday stresses and routines of a Southern Californian resident.

    California Adventure brings me right back to the place I was trying to avoid in the first place.

    Yeah, as you might expect from someone with my moniker-de-monitor (screen name), I have been visiting atommobiles.com for years and had been eagerly awaiting the CGI recreation of Adventure thru Inner Space. I was NOT disappointed. It is a work of skill and love and devotion and geekhood extraordinaire.

    I was pleasantly surprised by how much effort went into this disc. The way it was put together was outstanding. The menus were creative, and the bonus features were pretty cool. Also, ordering was completely painless. Just used PayPal and it showed up a few days later as promised.

    It got me wondering: if Disney (or heck, Pixar for that matter) would ever consider producing similar DVDs themselves with other attractions? If one guy can hit a home run like this with his own equipment out of his own house, imagine what an entire team of animators and a server farm could do?

    They should show the InnerSpace CGI recreation on a terminal at the 50th Anniversary display in Disneyland - - and sell it in Tomorrowland! It's that good.

    That really is a great idea. They sell the E-Ticket fanzine at Disneyana on Main Street, why not sell the DVD recreation of an old classic attraction?

    That's because today's Disney would want 99.9999% of the profits from the DVD and would end up laying off Steve Wesson (atommobiles' creator) after more execs get raises.... :devil:
