Spaceship Earth

photosm.gif (1068 bytes) NEW - 2007 Rehab Photos

Spiral 18 stories through a dramatic history of communication. A fascinating ride not to be missed. At the top of the Geosphere, you get a view of the universe projected on the ceiling. At this point your car reverses and you ride backwards towards your starting point and the Global Neighborhood activity center.

Interactive Wonderland -- Guests explore the information highway with Alice and the Cheshire Cat -- video shopping, movies-on-demand and film critic reviews, or viewer-choice sporting event broadcasts and the camera angles for viewing them. Hear the entire ride narrated by Jeremy Irons by clicking on the Real Audio logo or watch most of the ride by clicking on the RealVideo logo.  Being the focal point for Future World and Epcot Center, we have quite a few pictures.  

Spaceship Earth's 16-million-pound, 180-foot-high geosphere has been recognized as Future World's dominant landmark since the opening of Epcot in 1982.

Global Neighborhood:
Interactive Activity Center.

Communications Breakthrough -- A video-telephone game played against other guests where players are challenged to knock glass bricks from a computer-graphic wall with electronic "paddles" to build a communications link with other participants.

What's in a Word -- Guests translate humorous idioms from one language to another, demonstrating the difficulty and potential of electronic translation.

Electronic Finger Paint, Portrait Puzzle and Color Match
-- Three games illustrating communications which do not depend on language.
 
Story Teller Phones -- Guests can phone friends or relatives and choose appropriate sound effects from a video wall to "fool" friends into thinking they are calling from a jungle, a haunted house or a cartoon world.
