    I rode it a couple of times. If you got on at Fantasyland and got off at Tomorrowland and ran round quick enough you could get back in the exact same car for the ride back to Fantasyland. :lol:

    I was so easily pleased back then. :sigh;

    Oh yes, I remember it well.... :(

    I don't like heights so it was years before I was finally persuaded to go in it.
    Then IT BROKE DOWN while we were half way over! :shocked025:
    Did I panic?

    Of course I did!! :lol:

    Yep! The original at Disneyland and the second one at WDW in 1981. There was a terrific view of the park from both of them. :)

    That was my DHs favorite thing to ride, especially when it got dark out. He was heartbroken when they took it down :(

    I have a couple of photos of this that I'll be adding to the Retro Disney section of the site that I'll be writing after doing everything else that Keith asked me to do. :lol:

    Yeah, always like skyrides. There is a triangular one here in Virginia at Bush Gardens. I guess it is a security thing what with the cars going right over the rest of the guests.
