View Full Version : Lost Disney Rides Recreated in CGI

Quote from Slashdot:
"Disney closes the rides, but the CGI geeks love them too much to let them disappear. 'Adventures thru Inner Space,' the Disneyland ride in which you shrunk down to the size of a molecule, ran from 1967 to 1985. Atommobiles.com is a fan site which includes this elaborate CGI recreation. The Walt Disney World version of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride closed in 1967. Virtual Toad is in the process of re-building it." I was born after 1967, and I've ridden MTWR many times, so perhaps they're talking about an older version"

Well that site closed down quickly... incredibly shrinking CGI?
I loved that ride though... it was fun.

"Adventures thru Inner Space,' the Disneyland ride in which you shrunk down to the size of a molecule" : I actually really believed it when young,I saw all those people on the monitors while waiting in line,and made myself believe that I had just seen them,and now here they were shrunken once they had gotten on the ride.hehe,sure was fun though.:beer:

I am the creator of Atommobiles.com and the site is back online!
Sorry about the site being shut down. The amount of hits from slashdot org I received and the 33gb of bandwidth caused me to shut it down. It is back online now. See the site for more details.
