    Oh thanks, I loved that ride! I can still hear Paul Frees "That can only mean the snowflake is melting!".

    With today's technology ATIS would be absolutely amazing! Not that it wasn't 'back in the day'.

    I find this to frequently be the case. We have so much stimulation going on that it's hard to concentrate on any one element.

    I highly recommend checking out ride audio that you can find on the internet because you can isolate just what you hear. I think this is one reason that I've been so much more into the Haunted Mansion recently. When you hear just the Ghost Host you can get so much more benefit from the detail in his performance.

Tension mounts. You may be in danger.
    I love this tone. Disneyland generally and Tomorrowland specifically need more of this feeling of mystery and unknown. Not everything needs be whimsical.

    Can you image what this attraction would be like had it been updated with a mix of live sets and 3D-CGI? Those old projections would really pop.

    Really old memory here but was it sort of intermingled with Tron or am I thinking of something else?

    You can say a lot about Paul Frees, who would have been 100 this year. Rides like Adventure Thru Innerspace, Mine Train Thru Innerspace, and the Disneyland version of Carousel of Progress must have been fun to been on. I can't say the rides were great or lousy because they came and went before my time or before I could really remember things.

    It was legendary and I miss it.
    Adventure Thru Innerspace and Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland were attractions talked about a lot on mice chat over the years. It's nice to know there are YouTube videos to show us what the ride looked like and how it worked. Unfortunately for Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland, there are no known videos of it. My point is this: as long as there are videos or soundtracks to extinct attractions, the ride will never be totally gone.

    In more ways than that. Here's an excerpt from a blog post I made about ATIS several years ago:

    You enter the attraction building. It's dimly lit, but there are plenty of details to examine while you wait. An unseen narrator—the voice of Paul Frees—speaks to you, introducing you to the nature of the experience ahead without giving away too much. You approach the eggshell-shaped Omnimover ride vehicles, an endless line of them moving at slow but constant speed. A moving walkway allows you to match this speed and climb aboard. The front of the vehicle closes, holding you in place. Your conveyance moves into the darkness, with the disembodied narrator accompanying you. Eerie music plays in the background. The air acquires a chill as you pass by a succession of strange sights—mysterious lights and shapes and floating objects, their significance explained at the discretion of the narrator. Tension mounts. You may be in danger. Then you enter a spacious area with a glowing globe as its focal point. Your attention is riveted to it. After leaving this area, the ride takes on a different tone. The floating entities are more numerous and active now, but the sense of danger has lessened considerably. You enjoy lively music until the ride comes to an end.
    It was legendary and I miss it.

    At least for this ride, there is a VR version (here), although I don't have the hardware to try it.
