    I remember hearing that the foundation was bad on the Horizons building and it was slowly sinking into the ground.

    Sorry guys, I turned green for a second there. Didn't mean to frighten y'all. I'm back now though, so it's all good.

    I don't really know if that is true. But I know sink holes have been a big problem in Epcot so I wouldn't be surprised.

    Well . . . isn't that reassuring?

    According to my dad (who was on the maitenance team for much of the 90's), it is.

    I really miss this ride. And replacing it with the vomit comet was even worse. And no, it was not a sinkhole that ended the ride (as proved, ad nauseum at MAGIC) it was a stupid decision egged on by some Imagineers who didn't get EPCOT and wanted "their" ride in that plot of land.

    Virgin should have sponsored a refurb. Everything Horizon's talked about Richard Branson is working on. A Space Pavilion would be really cool with an updated Horizons In Space type of ride. Paris was supposed to get a Horizons ride with their Space Mountain 2. THAT should be in EPCOT.

    Actually that plot of land was always supposed to be the Space pavilion (see the project announcement in various papers). Of course the ride was considerably different than what we got (Large Imax theatre mounted on a gimbal). Horizon was sort of a last minute addition (They couldn't even decide on a name - Future Probe? Century 3?) and in some ways was redundant. It talked about the future of Land (already had a pavilion) Sea (already had a pavillion) and Space (which was being downsized to a manageable price).

    I never went on horizons but can anybody explain to me why it was so revolutionary or even good? From the videos I've seen it just looks like your typical "in the year 3000" future ride. What is it that I'm not seeing?

    I've also only seen videos but I can tell it was a special ride. It was long, had a ton of well-thought-out scenes and animatrons, a decent-sounding score and the part where you could pick your own ending must have been pretty amazing at the time. Also, the big IMAX screen part must have blown people's minds at the time since simulators really weren't a thing back then. It just seemed to have this scale that no ride today has. A lot of thought looked to be put into it, moreso than any ride around today. I just think that the combo of huge scale, music and the way it all unfolded kind of like a movie made it something really special. I wish I could've ridden it.
