ATIS was a unique experience at Disneyland, being the only ride that reflected a totally design and effects oriented experience. It added a different, unique level to a day at Disneyland.
Interestingly, Fox, Roland Emmerich and James Cameron are remaking the epic "Fantastic Voyage," a psychedelic film in which a crew is shrunk to microscopic size in order to enter a patient's bloodstream - - which was always compared to ATIS back in the day (see entertainment thread for remake/film discussion, this one is about the Disneyland attraction).
That means the ATIS miniaturization theme will again be prominent in pop culture.
Should Disneyland remake ATIS to tie-in?
