Digitally Reborn Rides

February 12, 2012

Horizons was a ride that opened at Disney World’s Epcot Center in 1983 and closed in 1999. Some people even go so far as to say it was the greatest ride ever created. One fan has created a virtual Horizons ride simulator to give the experience to the many people who never got the chance to ride. The ride simulator allows you to ride Horizons and explore the entire building and pavilion around the attraction. You can check it out at Horizons Resurrected.

Another fan has made a recreation of the original Star Tours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In 2011 they reopened Star Tours as Star Tours II. Below is a video of the project. You can see that its very detailed.

I must compliment the designers of both of these projects for their hard work, they are both excellent recreations. Its a great idea, recreating closed attractions on a computer for everyone to see.

What do you think? Please comment. Thanks for reading! 🙂
