T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – There’s A RIDE Inside That Globe?
This huge geosphere is not only Epcot’s Icon, but it is also the home to the Spaceship Earth ride, where you board a tram that takes you on a 16 minute journey through the history of communication. The ride is narrated by Oscar winner Judy Dench, and the scenes depict different milestones in history such as the invention of papyrus, the alphabet, and the printing press.
At first, I thought the ride might be boring, but it’s really not, the scenes are very well done, and it’s interesting to see how far we have come! Oh, and the best part is – it’s interactive! Towards the end, you get to input some information into the screen in front of you, and then ‘your future’ is played out for you! Including these lovely depictions of you living in the future!
It’s one of my favorite rides in Ecpot (especially on a hot day, since it’s inside and air conditioned!), and it’s something everyone can enjoy!
