Are you in a car backstage? And if so, how!?!? :)
I was just about to ask that same question. I don't know that I've EVER seen pictures of Horizons from backstage.
I've actually seen this view myself! Ah the memories. It was very easy just to slip backstage if you were young and carefree. I remember walking with a friend of mine from the back of Mexico to right about where this picture was taken. We were out in full view, a couple of teenage tourists, and everyone backstage just waved at us, assuming, I guess that if we weren't where were supposed to be we wouldn't be so brazen. Then some guy pulls up in a golf cart and yells--hey! The chase was on! A remember running through the trees with the guard hard on our heels...just making it back to the "guest area" in time, knowing he wouldn't chase us into the crowd and make a scene. Good times.
If you would have turned to the left the satellite Imagerring trailer was right next to you. It was right across the street from Horizons.
By chance, the company I was working for needed someone to deliver a package to an office behind Future World. Being the good employee I was I volunteered to drive it out there:)
That's the spirit, Slowjack!
I new the Imagineering trailer was there because I could smell the bad ideas being cooked up.
There's a great view that I never thought I'd see again! You don't get nearly the effect from the photo, but standing up close, it's humbling. You don't realize from the front just how big the building is, because the slope built up to the front and the "windows" that break up the sides. From the back, it's really, really impressive if less detailed.I have a bunch of photos from the two sides (as a guest), but didn't have the nerve as CM or as a guest to take photos of the back. When I took the south side photos (the side with the ramp down to the "basement") a group of CMs were having some kind of party just beyond the ramp. They didn't bother me (and I think some were aware of me) but I didn't want to press my luck.
hey hoot,i was watching a documentry video about the failed thunder mesa area in WDW and finally realized where your name came from, would have been a really cool attraction
Anonymous, your comment means you are one of th eunlucky ones who never rode Horizons. Mesa Verde was one of three future environments you visited in Horizons, the greatest attraction anyone ever built, or ever will build.But yeah, Thunder Mesa, and its signature attraction, the Western River Expedition, would indeed have been really cool.
