Grand Scale

Unless there's another request we'll focus next on the massive scale of the Horizons building. We'll try to show the concept of how small the actual sets were compared to the vast empty spaces above and below them. Huge empty rooms! Makeshift beds made by maintenance persons! Amazingly high catwalks! 24 ft ladders duct taped together that only the daring would climb! Dead birds! Dirty Flintstone cartoons scrawled on the walls! Beer cans from 1983 and on! Retired machinery from axed visual effects! Incredibly water damaged ceilings that dropped huge chucks of soundproof tile at will! Encounters that would have killed Indiana Jones!

  1. Excellent! That sounds good. Additionally, anything from the Ride Control (first floor) or Show Control (second floor) EER's?

  5. Oh man....

    hows about everything you can when you get the time?

    I`ve said it before, I`ll say it again. These pics are priceless.

    The topics you`ve just mentioned sound too good to be true, but if you want requests how about any pics of the Messe Verde, Roberta Flats and desert farm or or Kitchen backdrops?

    Many, many thanks.

  6. Horizons had an incredible ride system. It would be awesome to see some unique pics of it.

    This blog is really getting off to a fantastic start! I love the content.

  7. The original plan called for 3 not 2 Imax screens and 600 more feet of track, and a very cool post show pavillion but then something went wrong with Eurodisney...

    Maybe thats why the interior seemed "empty"--I always liked the look of the building and the glowing signs out front. Pure future.
