Have you ridden the new Spaceship Earth?
Epcot's brought its landmark Spaceship Earth
attraction back from an extensive rehab for a soft opening. Readers submitted the following reports:Orlando Sentinel
Theme Park Ave
We had the spoilers on the Spaceship Earth changes on the Blog Flume a few months back. I'm looking forward to read what TPI members have to say about how they came off on our Spaceship Earth review page.
Well the Orlando Setinal seems to have a pretty good report on it! I seem to like this new theming of it since it seems that they are keeping some of the more iconic scenes in such as the Egyptians, Romans, and Cavemen. The video was interesting too. I would have liked to have seen Jermey Irons AND Dame Judi Dench. I think it would have made it a little better!
I got the chance to go on it today. I absolutely love everything they have done up to where the ride becomes "interactive". The two major new scenes, the computer room and garage, are very cool and well done. But the transition from the garage before the PC to the future is way too fast.
A friend of mine works at EPCOT and she said this past Wednesday Execs did a test run on Spaceship Earth. However, they did not give the ok for opening. Apparently there are a few minor tweaks that need to be done.
The first half is great. Then it goes downhill quickly.
