    I've long suspected the may have had a connection. From the pictures I've seen they do look exact like the same ones used in ATIS. Could be a lot more of them are re-purposed as well.

        I wished I had known about this little factoid before we went to DL. I would have been looking for it. I remember riding in that very same atom mobile when I was a kid. I remember everything! LOL, I don't remember hardly anything.

            That's a cool fact to know. From 1969 to 1985 both Adventure thru Inner Space and Haunted Mansion were in operation, so obviously they aren't the same set of vehicles, but it's neat to know that they kept one from ATIS and are still using it. They ought to have the ATIS soundtrack running in that one, even though you are seeing the HM scenes. That would be freaky.

                I remember ATIS very well. It is nice to know a piece of it remains in Disneyland. I always enjoyed seeing the "microscope" in the original Star Tours ride. Anyone know if there is a tribute in any of the new Tours?

                    well, that explains it! Last time I rode the HM, I kept feeling like I was being watched...constantly...by a giant eye....

                    I figured I was suffering from an event of paranoid psychosis, but I was just in Doombuggy 55!

                          Adventure thru the Inner Haunted Mansion... Are these walls actually stretching? No, it's just that you're shrinking.

                              Personally, I'd need a little more corraboration to believe this...

                              While similar in design, the two ride vehicles are not identical.

                                ^I'm kinda with Steve, here. First were all the rumors that #55 was haunted. Now this? All seems to good to be true.
                                Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

                                  I was there last night (mostly to confirm the alternate narration that appeared last week) and #55 doesn't look any different from its neighbors, but I won't make any guess about its source.

                                  There is, however, a group near the front (starting with #7, IIRC) that have a different type of restraint bar. It bends down a bit around the entrance side and the piece of the buggy body normally there is missing.

                                  (I can't seem to get enough of reverse-engineering rides, apparently.)

                                    On one of my last trips I fell just short of 55 and was on either 54 or 56. So disappointing!
