I thought it was an awesome attraction. It was thrilling that it could actually scare you.
What? I was 8. Some of us on this board are, well, young adults. My parents always made me try new rides at least once when I was old enough, but they never made me get on this one, as my mom states that she didn't like it and would not force me to get on it only for it to give me nightmares. Given how I feel about the Alien section of Great Movie Ride...It closed when you were 7 years old?
I really miss it too...even though I had only one chance to experience it.
I thought it was scary...but not too scary. Kind of like a general haunted house is scary, but you know it's all fake.
I do have issues with the design of the seats, but that's because I have fibromyalgia, and those harnesses can really hurt.(I found a way to minimize the pain since, by holding up the harness before it comes down completely on my shoulders.)
You stole the words from my mouth. While I have never experienced Alien Encounter I do remember how great TL used to be. TTA, Timekeeper, Metrophone, etc. added to the atmosphere which made this my favorite land. Nowadays it is all one big advertisement.Don't know what attraction you speak of, but it sounds amazing!
Seriously it's such a shame that the entrance to Tomorrowland used to be the place I wanted to spend the most time and go to first every trip. Now I just walk past SGE and MILF and spend no time there. It really is sad for such a fan of 94-95 New Tomorrowland.
My wife and I were there for our Honeymoon in June of 1995. We missed it's opening by just a few days and by the time we got back to WDW Nov 2005 it had already been shut down. So we never got to experience it. Bummer.I know it never really seemed Disney-like since it was pretty scary but it still seemed like a fun attraction to me.
