Adventure Thru Inner Space Tribute Site
Date last updated: See News below for latest updates.

This site features the sights, sound and flash animation of Disney's much missed attraction in Disneyland California's Tomorrowland (now replaced with Star Tours). I have created this site from my own collection of media from auctions on ebay to my own personal ATIS material. Adventure Thru Inner Space web site was in the making for over the span of 8 years. My goal is to share with others who also miss the attraction or have never encountered one of the most interesting, creative and odd rides ever created. If you have any additional information on this attraction and would like to share it on this site (and you will be given credit) please e-mail me

Please feel free to look around the site. There are many interesting tid-bits of information about ATIS.

News 10-12-06: New ATIS Doombuggies Project from Patrick Hurd

Not much new to report but there is a new ATIS project from Doombuggies Productions that I have been informed of. The ATIS platform is selling for $40.00 with shipping included. The site is currently down but you can contact him though his email at:

Not new to some but for those who didn't know: Disney has a little tribute to ATIS on their Virtual Magic Kingdom online game. One of the areas looks a little familiar doesn't it? still need a screen shot of it. Anyone that plays VMK can you send in a pic? I think this is of the Inner Space shop once you complete a bunch of hard mini games.

More great ATISVRT DVD Reviews:

Hello Steve,

I purchased a copy of your ATIS Virtual Ridethru DVD a few months ago. I have to say that it was AMAZING!!! The quality of your work is remarkable, and the detail that went into it is commendable. My 8 year old daughter, who will never be able to see the Mighty Microscope, loves the DVD.

For those of us who miss the best ride ever at Disneyland, can still get our 'shrinking' fix at any time. You haven't just put together a simulation, but you've actually helped preserved a piece of history. As years go by and memories fade, we will still have your ridethru as a reference.

Thanks so much for your very hard work!

~~ Jason

Wow, from memory and a few snap shots, this is what you made... Fantastic!!! I was just a little guy, but vaguely remember this ride.. many parts to your recreation sparked a few memories.. So, Id say you pretty much hit it on the nose. I got the DVD from Extinct attraction for ATIS, but is was pretty much 100% blackout.. Glad I have it, but at the same time, felt like a waste of $$. With your recreation, you get to see everything a video camera just can't capture. Even today, with the infrared cameras, you just cant get the detail a recreation can give you.. cant tell you how many times I have tried to film Pirates and Haunted mansion.. came out ok, but not as good a being there. The scrim gets in the way, etc.. So Im am totally on board with CGI recreations. With your atommobile and the timing on the animation, your part way there for a Haunted Mansion.-

~~ Chris

Hey Steve,

You did an amazing job recreating ATIS. I love the level of detail you achieved. I'm surprised that my favorite part is the lobby...I guess that feels the most like being there. Thanks for bringing back the best part of the best era of Tomorrowland (when it was a land of constant, harmonious motion)!

~~ Rob

I received the DVD back in January I believe, and let me tell you, I watch it just about every day. Although I was only 5 years old when the ride closed, and not sure if I ever rode it (I went to Disneyland when I was 2 and my parents don't recall if they took me on it, nor do they even remember it), I appreciate it just as much as anyone else. Thank you so much for the DVD!

News 08-21-05: New Update. YAY! 'bout time....

Sorry everyone that I have been away for so long. I have been real busy at my new job working hard on my many projects that come up. I have some updates and info so here it goes...

I had a GREAT time meeting everyone a few months back at the NFFC show. Nice to finally put many faces with emails and names that I chat with online. I got to meet my fellow ATIS fan and partner Paul Barrie and his son who were really fun to sit with at our booth. Everyone was so nice and I so was flattered by the kind comments that were expressed at the show. I couldn't believe that some people wanted my autograph on the DVD as well. Flattering to have that 15 minutes of fame. The highlight of the day was when Tony Baxter of Head of Disney Imagineering came to my table to meet me. He expressed how much he enjoyed the DVD and he even signed a copy for me to take home. I also had the awesome pleasure in meeting and chatting with Doug Hartwell of Walt Disney Imagineering fame and the famous Dave Smith (Main Director and founder of Disney Archives and Author of the book "Disney A to Z". What a great day! I will have to try to go to another one the next time it comes around.

I have some updates to the IMAGE GALLERY (page 3). Nice images that I haven't seem before. Some fans (that must have been Disneyland Employees at the time) have been nice to send some personal photos of inside the ATIS attraction (some with the lights on) and I am glad to see that many of them are real close to my 3D models. Good stuff! See it here

Dear Steve:

Just received the DVD. You did a brilliant job. I have a p-rojection set up in my basement. My screen is about 8' x 10' so when you project your movie it looks life sized. I was never able to ride the original ATIS so seeing this really was alot of fun. It truly felt like I was riding in the attraction. I loved the sound recording split in the 5.1 surround sound. Overall this was an excellent job, bravo!

John Brice

Great video! It brought back lots of memories. I remember the
first time I rode on it when I was in grade school. I was scared out
of my wits when I saw the miniaturized people going through the Mighty
Microscope. After that, it was one of my favorite rides.

You put a lot of hard work into the project and produced a great product.


Hello Steve!
Received the first of my two DVDs today! The second one is for my friend Marianne (who misses the attraction terribly) when it arrives. What an amazing achievement!!! You have pioneered a whole-new genre with this effort. Liked also hearing your comments during the ride-thru. I had a kind of eerie sensation I can't explain while watching, but in a good way!!!

PHILO H. BARNHART (Animator, Product designer and artist)

And for the Disney Geek in your life...

WWW.ATOMMOBILES.COM - Some folks have posters of their favourite Disneyland attractions, this guy spent two years of his life, countless thousands of dollars and went ahead and did a CGI version of this long missed attraction. This is a recreation of the beloved “Adventures Thru Innerspace” that was removed 20 year ago to make room for Star Tours and another nail in Tomorrowland’s coffin. At $20.00, you are not only giving validation to the coolest tribute to the coolest ride ever to be seen at Disneyland, you are saying “Good Job” to a labour of love for the entire world can now enjoy in 5.1 surround…

Joe Mishica

Just received and watched the DVD. Thank you for a great product. I really enjoyed it.

Kelly De Witt

A friend of mine showed me her copy of the DVD and I was blown away. This is a very awesome thing you have done for all of us who enjoyed that ride.

News 06-14-05: NFFC "Strictly Disneyana" Show, and Sale, PSP & more reviews.

Hi everyone. No real updates this month. I decided to take some time off and get some much needed rest. There hasn't been anything new, turned-in or discovered. I will update the site wih anything new as it comes in. It has been real slow this year and the only update is to the links area. Be sure to check out Jeff Summers website. He is building a small scale Nautilus model that looks really great. Check out his site at

For those interested, the NFFC "Strictly Disneyana" Show 2005 at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Garden Grove, CA is coming up. I will be there on opening day on Sunday July 10th, so if you are at the show try to stop by and say hi. I will be there selling ATIS DVD's (one day only) along with fellow ATIS fan and Country Bears fame Paul Barrie. Hope to see you there. I can't wait. I wish I could stay longer but I have work obligations at my new job.

Many of you already know I am a hard core gamer. Some great games out there even kept me from working on the ATIS project. Thankfully I was able to pull myself away from the games to get it done. Now that the new PSP is out I knew I had to have one. I love this thing. Great graphics and 3D gameplay in the palm of my hand. What was the first movie I put on my PSP? Yep You guessed it.... ATIS Virtual Ride-thru.

I have been thinking about making the ATIS Ride Thru available in MPEG 4 format for Sony PSP owners. For fun I put it on my PSP to show and inform people about ATIS. It is great to have it in such a portable format. Now I can show people exactly what the heck ATIS is when I try to explain it or the website to them. Email me if you think this is something worth doing.

Here are some pics from my ATIS Vitrual Ride-thru on my PSP. It looks great on the PSP format. To bad I didn't build it out in wide screen to fill the PSP size screen. The movie can be stretched to fit but it distorts the movie a bit.

Oh and here are some more great reviews... one is even from Wil Wheaton (Actor, Author, Voice Actor) and Star Trek Next Generation fame (See review below).

I just finished watching the Virtual Ride Thru, and viewing most of the extra materials.

It is incredible! The most amazing this is that I recall all the visuals, but none of the music or narration.

I'm sure that I'm not the first person to tell you how wonderful it is to get on that ride again, and recall the thrill I felt when I first rode it in the early 80s with my dad.

Longing for a future where I can enjoy an entire Disneyland retro-trip
on DVD,

Wil Wheaton (Actor, Author, Voice Actor)

Got it and it's SO COOL!!!!! I showed it to my wife and she flipped! She went on and on about running around to get on the ride over and over as a kid with her friends. (much as my brother's and I did!) My 7 yr old son lamented that the ride was closed only 2 years before he was born and like the submarines, wishes it ATIS were still there for him to experience.

I played it at work for a few friends who are Disneyfiles and they sat agog, repeating how awesome it was that this could have been done... Of course I referred them to your website... I plan on showing it to our design staff this week as well.

GREAT work. Congratulations! I still can't believe you left a computer rendering for 3 months on one scene... MAN!

As if the site wasn't enough, I a bigger fan of yours now...

I just had to drop you a note to thank you for your amazing work on the ATIS ride-thru DVD. I have to admit despite the great reviews on your site I was a little skeptical that a computer animation would be able to really recapture the feeling I had of being a kid going to Disneyland for the first time in 1970 and riding this fascinating ride. I certainly needn't have been; I've watched it several times now, including some viewings with some friends that never went on the ride, and they absolutely love it too. It just seems better and better with each viewing. First of all, it truly captures the experience that a grainy, dark actual video of the ride can never do. An interesting impression: the fact there are no other people there gives kind of a haunting, frozen-in-time feeling to it, like you have your own private pass to Disneyland in a time warp. Your work: graphics, layout, sound editing and mixing (excellent surround FX!) is remarkable, and I look forward to seeing what future projects you'll be working on.

All the best,

Adventure Thru Inner Space Virtual Ride-Thru : 5 out of 5

A long time ago I discovered, a fantastic tribute site to one of my favorite extinct Disneyland attractions, and I've been visiting it every now and then to check on the progress of an incredible task: re-creating the entire ride in detailed CGI animation! This amazing job was recently completed after two years of work, and the finished result is now available on DVD. Of course, I ordered a copy right away, and the experience is spectacular! Steve Wesson went all out to make this as accurate as possible, from the complete entrance and exit lobby down to the warning labels on the ride vehicles. I think I only rode the actual ride a few times on some of my first visits to Disneyland, but everything is exactly as I remember it. The DVD contains the complete ride-through in both rider perspective and "floating camera" views, and also other bonus material. This is definitely a professional looking product that every Disneyland fan should own. If you've ever traveled through the Mighty Microscope in the past, get a copy of this DVD at to relive the journey again!


Just got you DVD of the virtual ride thru of Inner Space. All I've got to say is YOU ARE THE MAN. You've faithfully reproduced every "atom" of this long missed ride that really captures the true essence of what a REAL Tomorrowland is all about. Along with my love for the 67 Carousel of Progress ATIS ranks up there with it. Beats the retro Rustyland that was pushed in 89. Shows that the immagineers KNEW what they were doing back then.

By the way. What software and system did you use to do this. I'm VERY interested.

Perhaps you might be interested in doing a virtual ride on the PeopleMovers and or even a bigger challenge would be to replicate the original 67 Carousel of Progress complete with Progress City.

Again, Thanks a HOLE bunch for this DVD. Love it, love it, loooooooove it!!!!!!!


News 01-12-05: Nice Review from David Koenig (Author of "Mouse Tales" and "More Mouse Tales")

I received the DVD a couple of days ago and watched it last night. Spectacular job! I never thought I'd have the opportunity again to step back in time 20 years and experience Inner Space again, but you somehow pulled it off. I just kept shaking my head, unable to believe how dead on everything was. I especially loved all the little details -- and you had me dying to climb into the screen and ride on of your PeopleMover cabins next! I've seen plenty of videotaped attraction ride-thrus, but yours is the only one that delivered any meaningful sensation of riding the actual ride again. Congratulations! I'll highly recommend it to anyone who asks.

My best,

Thanks for bringing back so many memories. I was tickled at the little things about the ride that I had forgotten and suddenly remembered when viewing the DVD. Now I can show my kids this ride---one that I had only been able to explain before. I am so glad I can bring history to life for them. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!!!


Hi Steve,

I received your DVD and adore everything you have done. What a thrilling achievement! Your treatment of Adventure Thru Inner Space is a true gift to everyone and such a beautiful and loving tribute. I experienced the ride only as a small child and couldn't really remember it, so your DVD enabled me to go back in time and re-live something that would otherwise have been totally forgotten. I hope that in the future you will consider attempting other virtual rides from Disney's past. But wherever your future leads you, I wish you fulfillment and happiness (at least equal to the happiness you have shared via this beautiful project!)


Craig Conley

News 01-05-05: More great reviews! Thanks everyone for your support.
In 1967, Disneyland's New Tomorrowland opened, arguably the single greatest themed attraction project ever achieved. The project included a whopping six major new attractions: the Peoplemover, Carousel of Progress, Rocket Jets, Circle Vision, Flight to the Moon, and Adventure Thru Inner Space.

Steve Wesson's computer generated "Ride-thru" DVD recreates what I consider one of the best and certainly one the most ground breaking rides to ever come out, New Tomorrowland's Adventure Thru Inner Space. And, what an amazing DVD this is!

The DVD contains all three elements of the now extinct attraction and a host of bonus material. The new 1967 New Tomorrowland rides (along with Pirates of the Caribbean) were the first to incorporate integrated and well developed pre and post show elements. The ride-thru is true to form. The perspective is first person and it begins as anyone would have walked into the entry lobby of the attraction 35 years ago.

I remember walking into that same lobby almost 35 years ago as a kid and being scared to death. The DVD does a great job recapturing the atmosphere. The focus is on an enormous machine called the Mighty Microscope which is apparently swallowing people and shrinking them down to the size of an atom. The attention to detail and faithfulness to the real ride is amazing.

You board the ride vehicle (Disney's first use of the very successful omnimover system) and enter the Mighty Microscope. And once again, the attention to detail on the DVD is great. I continue to be in awe of two things. First, how well and how creative the Disney imagnieers were to provide a truly immersive experience given 1967 technology. Second, how well the DVD reproduces the experience with all its quirks.

Needless to say, you shrink all the way down until you come face to face with nucleus of an oxygen atom, which beats and throbs like a heart. At this point, the shrinking reverses and the ride narrator informs that there is no cause for alarm because we are back on visual. A huge eyeball appears gazing back through a microscope.

I should attest as well to the quality and faithfulness of the audio. The ride designers spent a lot of time scripting the narration, the music, and the sound effects and Steve's DVD is right on the spot in every respect.

The ride ends and we are ushered out into the exit lobby, complete with Monsanto propaganda (the ride sponsor), a beautiful floor-to-ceiling hourglass shaped oil lamp, and a fairly faithful view of the rest of Tomorrowland.

Final comment: The amount of research, the level of detail, and the execution are way beyond my expectations of a fan who worked as a hobby in his spare time over the course of a couple years. But the DVD truly speaks for itself, a must for the Disney nostalgia buff.

David Vaughnn

Hey steve…..

man-O-man! your butt is probably the cleanest thing on the planet right now! as everyone else has commented, that dvd is AWESOME! in the over 20 years I’ve been collecting Disneyland stuff, I’ve never run across something so immersing as your ride through! As you know, I have some rare ATIS stuff, but having your ride thru really tops it out. my microscope Atommobile whimpered for home when I played your disc for the first time (the Atommobile is next to the tv!).

Merry Monsanto X-mas!

Jordan Reichek

Steve -

You are a miracle worker. I don't know how you did it, but this virtual ride-through is a glory to behold.

Thanks so much doing such a tremendous service.



Wow, that brought back memories! I had forgotten many details of the ride. What a great simulation! And the sound was especially great.

Thanks again!

John J.

Hi Steve,

I really don't know where to begin, except to say thank you, thank you, thank you (as well as thanks to your family that was patient as you worked on this). First off, I really didn't expect to receive this before Christmas, as late as I ordered. That was remarkable in itself. But then when I sat down to watch it.... WOW! I stumbled upon your site about a year or so ago, and was impressed then. I remember reading what you planned to do, were working on, etc... and then I just kind of got distracted, forgetful, something like that.

Then I saw Kevin's review in MiceAge and right then and there, and based on what he said, and what I had previously seen, I knew I HAD to have this piece of Disneyland history.

So, again, thank you for what was obviously a labor of love, and then for sharing it with us DIsney fanatics. It is once again, just remarkable beyond words.

Merry Christmas to you and yours,

Howard Glosser

Hi Steve,

After hearing about your DVD from a friend of mine (Whimsical Will), I ordered two of your DVD’s

Absolutely AWESOME DVD of my all-time favorite extinct attraction – a dream come true for me ;-)

Randy Peck

I just wanted to let you know that I just watched the DVD last night and was amazed!! I just had to get a few copies for some friends.

Thanks so much,

Darrell Payton

Hi Steve!

I did receive it-- saw it last night for the first time-- and I have to say, it was INCREDIBLE! Absolutely stupendous!

You've given those of us who never experienced the ride in person a great impression of what it was like; and you've also set the standard in our new genre. No matter what follows, Steve Wesson will always be the "founding father" of the virtual theme park ride-through.

I was captivated by the motion of the Omnimover vehicles and the amazing number of projections you were able to realistically recreate. The Disney design influence of that era was also clearly visible. It's easy to understand why Disneylanders remember ATIS so fondly, much in the same way Floridians have a fond affinity for "if you had wings."

I especially liked the alternate-view sequence, with the camera moves outside the vehicles. For some reason, that's my favorite perspective. Perhaps because I got a better look at how you put the whole thing together.

And I can't thank you enough for the generous mention in the credits! You've been way too kind. I'll continue to promote your DVD on my site, and I promise, I'll do everything I can to keep pushing "Virtual Toad" toward completion.

I know you must be relieved that it's finished, but in a way, it's kind of bittersweet, because we won't be able to see your work as it evolves anymore. Unless you're planning on tackling another Disney project.... !?

Best wishes and Happy Holidays,


My dad's side of the family has a tradition of loving Disneyland that goes all the way back to Opening Day in 1955. And my dad and uncle in particular loved ATIS. So when we all got together for Christmas, I brought the DVD to show everyone. It was a huge hit!

I had been a little afraid that they would think both of us unconscionable geeks--you for making the film, and me for spending $20 on it. But they were extremely impressed and thanked me for bringing it. Some grand old memories were re-lived on that day.

So thank you once again for this creation. My whole family appreciates it.

Adventure Thru Inner Space DVD Now Shipping!

See DVD content details below

Read what people are saying about the ATIS Virtual Ride-thru Tribute DVD.

ATIS Virtual Ride-thru Tribute DVD Reviews:

A really nice review from Kevin Yee at

But first, an incredible gift idea you just can’t pass up. I know it’s late in the Christmas game, and I can’t promise you’ll get your order in time for Christmas, but forget all that. I have a product to recommend to you which will make you forget the present didn’t arrive until January. You’ll forget the world around you. You’ll be lucky if you don’t temporarily forget your own name, it’s so good. It’s the DVD of a computer-generated ride-through of the old Disneyland attraction, Adventure Thru Inner Space.

Run, do not walk, to There you will find a DVD on sale for $19.99 that defies imagination and description. Here’s what creator Steve Wesson says is on the DVD:

  • Full CGI Ride Thru of Adventure Thru Inner Space in Full 5.1 Surround Sound (audio rebuilt from the ground up by Paul Barrie)
  • Vector line ride thru of attraction
  • Animation tests
  • Render Mistakes
  • Alternate camera fly though
  • 360 Chair model test
  • Image Slide Show (over 80 images and close up shots)
  • Images of all 8 display boxes in Lobby scene
  • Alternate "Back on visual Eye" scene
  • Animation Composite Example
  • Commentary of Problems and Issues with ride-thru (optional) by Steve Wesson

And yet, words are too cold to fully capture the magic on this DVD. The ride-through was a transcendent experience for me. I found myself exclaiming “Ohmygosh! I forgot all about that!” constantly while watching the video. I cannot possibly imagine a single theme park collectible, video, or book ever encapsulating the Disneyland experience as much as this one DVD. Maybe this is my nostalgia peeking through – my wife commented that ATIS was a somewhat boring ride, even in digitally-rendered three-dimensional computer animation – but for anyone who remembers the Monsanto dark ride, this is simply not to be missed. I cannot stress enough what a fascinating and worthwhile purchase this is. Of all the recommendations I’ve ever made in my life, this one earns my highest praise. Buy it. You won’t be disappointed. Steve has even indicated that people emailing him with “rush shipping orders” for Christmas might even be accommodated, if they can tolerate a little extra payment for shipping.

Kevin Yee


Steve, Just a note to say thank you and "WOW" for your amazing DVD. It is obvious what passion can do when you really love what you do. I'm forwarding your link to as many people as I can to get lots of them sold for you. Great job!! Well done!!

"The Oscar goes to Steve, for finding new ways to arrange pixels for our comfort and convenience! The DVD Rocks!"

Eddie Sotto (Former Senior Vice President of Concept Design at Walt Disney Imagineering)


Where do I begin… the DVD is AWESOME! It is so much more than I expected, and I expected a lot. You did such a wonderful job of re-creating one of my most favorite Disneyland attractions of all time. I am truly thankful to you for all of the hard work you put into bringing ATIS back to life.

It is just so wonderful that given what little material you had to go by, you were able to re-create the ride so closely to how I remember it, and I was 26 when it closed so my memories are still quite strong. It was so real that I was craning my neck to look out of my atommobile and see the scenes as I left them, or as they approached.

Steve, again, thank you so much for taking on this project and doing such a quality job of it. Even the artwork on the disc itself is worthy of framing. Since I first found your site when it first appeared I felt that you are a fantastically talented person, and this project proves it beyond a shadow of a doubt. Good work, Steve.

Jeff Babb


Just wanted you to know that I received the DVD last night and it was great! It really brought back great memories for me – I hope you know how much your hard work is appreciated by the fans of this fantastic ride. Now it’s time for you to take break, sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Clay Colvin


You know, any other words just can't describe it better then that one simple
word. From the DVD case, to the quality graphics, to the exceptional sound;
WOW just describes the entire product.

A tip of the mouse-ears to you and your hard work.

You may know of my work if you hang around the Newsgroups, VisionsFantastic, or #Disney-Central. I produce Disneyland ride videos taking multiple trips and editing together a unique experience. I can sympathize with your hard work and can truly appreciate the birth pains you had to go through to give this baby life. From one creator to another - you have done Walt proud.


Dear Steve:

I got my DVD today and just wanted to say that I admire the finished piece greatly and am in awe of the work and dedication that went into creating it. I’m sure you must be pleased and proud of what you’ve accomplished. To me, it’s nothing short of remarkable. Congratulations. You’ve brought the ride back to life single-handedly!

All best wishes –

Don Brockway


The DVD arrived yesterday and it was absolutely wonderful. To paraphrase Mastercard commercials:

One-of-a-kind DVD: $20 plus tax and shipping.

Nostalgia for a long-lost and
much beloved Disneyland ride

: Priceless.

It's strange--I was only 8 when ATIS closed, and I remember it just well enough to wish I remembered it better. Your labor of love helped me do just that. It was the next best thing to going back in time 20 years.

Hats off to a truly talented computer animator and an extremely devoted Disneyland fan!




What an awesome job you did on the "Adventure thru Inner Space" virtual ride-through. I watched the DVD with my 10-year-old son, who never had a chance to experience the ride (although I described it to him while we were standing in line for "Star Tours"). We both enjoyed not only the ride-through, but all the bonus items too! Kudos to you for getting this monster project done! And a tip-of-the-hat to Paul Barrie as well for the superb sound!

Clinton Alvord


You did an amazing job with the dvd! I can't believe how great this looks. Disney should hire you to recreate everything they've torn down! I imagine you're relieved to finish this, but have thought what you're going to do next? I've toyed with trying to build the House of the Future with a basic 3-D program, but my skills aren't up to it. I just want to say a big, "Thank You!" for bringing this ride back to life.

Bob Ammidown

Hi, Steve.

Just wanted you to know I had a chance to watch the DVD over the weekend and it's brilliant!

After all the time and effort you poured into this project, you should be very pleased and very proud of the end result. Thanks for sharing this with all of us.



Hi, Steve!

Just wanted to thank you for the GREAT DVD! You've done a fantastic job, and thanks for sending it out so quickly! I've been looking foreward to seeing it for 2 years, and it was definetly worth the wait!

KUDOS!!! :-)
Linda Matyja


Un-be-lieve-a-ble! I had pretty high expectations after seeing the previews you had, and you shattered all! The level of detail and the richness of the colors and everything brought this attraction back to life after nearly 20 years. You have brought this back for a new generation to enjoy.

You have an incredible talent and you used it in a way that we can all enjoy. Thanks for your hard work. I hope you realize the masterpiece you created.

Clark Wothe

Thanks everyone for your kind comments and praise. I am very flattered and happy that you like it. I worked very hard on this project and it is a miracle that it got finished this year due to the many obstacles and distractions that would come up. In this busy year I lost my job, ...found a new job and worked part time at two other jobs to make ends meat. My house had a huge flood due to a hot water line break and my only dog died. But enough about my problems. Thanks to the many emails from friends, family and fans for all the support to keep me going. I also want to thank Paul Barrie for his great advice, constructive comments and to give a little extra push to help me get thru-it all and finally finish this huge project. I can't believe I made it.

Thanks Paul

News 08-17-04: Patent and CGI update

CGI Ride-Thru Tribute update: I am currently working with a friend and fellow Disneyland web master of / Country Bear Playhouse fame, Paul Barrie Jr. to help make the ATIS Virtual Ride-Thru Tribute, sound better than ever! He sent me a sample from the Entry Lobby in 5.1 surround and it sounded incredible! He is separating/rebuilding the Virtual Ride-Thru audio into a 5.1 surround sound format which will really immerse the audience while watching the film. I can't wait to hear it when it is finished!

When will it be done?!!!

My goal is to have it finished before Christmas this year which might make it a nice gift for ATIS fans out there. Rendering this stuff takes forever if you don't have a "Render Farm" like PIXAR does! Please be patent. Just like the game Doom3 or Half life 2 "It will be done when it is done."


In other update news...

Now you can build your own Omnimover Atommobile/Doombuggy System at home! (Yeah, right?)

I was sent a copy of the original OmniMover "Atomobile" / "Doombuggy" Patent in (PDF format) from Donna L. Hill. You can actually read the text in this document and see the up close mechanical chair parts that run underneath it as well. Good luck figuring it out. Amazing stuff.

Go to Downloads section of the site to see the Patent in PDF format.

Patrick at Doombuggy sent me this great little audio clip that he produced. He is friends with Pete Renaday who was one of the original voice actors that did the original queues com chat in the Adventure Thru Inner Space front lobby. I thank you both for this nice clip. I am very flattered. I added it to the splash of this site.

Ebay has an auction for an Atommobile replica. Starting at $300.00 bones!

News 07-08-04: Image gallery update and good news bad news....

Sorry for the long time between updates. I have been really busy with many matters in the last few months that has taken me away from my web site baby, Let me explain what has been going on with myself, ATIS CGI project and more.

The good:
I have completed 100% of the CGI Virtual Ridethru (attraction ride only) and have completely worked out my DVD issues. The entire ridethru from start to finish runs about 12 min including the line entry and exit of the attraction. I am very proud of the final outcome of the ATIS virtual ride thru and it looks great running on DVD TV. I have tested it on many DVD players as well (old and new) to make sure most common players will run it. I have even tested it on Xbox and Playstation 2 and they both run terrific! Whew! As time allows I am working on the DVD extras so I can add some other interesting things to make it this DVD a complete package. I am currently writing my second draft of of the history of ATIS and pulling together some images and footage to use for the segment. I am also toying with other ideas such as a ride thru version (out of atommobile car) with the lights on or I might even include a vector line ridethru as well. I also want to include a short making of movie and and alternate audio track with my commentary about some of the animation issues and problems I had in certain areas of the project. Should be interesting to those who care.

The bad: I get a ton of E-mail asking me when my CGI project is going to be finished and that I "said" it would be finished months ago. I am very sorry it isn't finished yet. There is a reason for the delay. As some of you already know my current employer is shutting down my web division and they are giving me until Sept 30th to find a new job. I have been scrabbling to find a new job by interviewing, sending out resumes and going to interviews but nothing has really turned out yet. I came really close to landing a job as an Flash Advertisement builder for the North County Times online newspaper. Damn! That would have been perfect for me. It's hard to find work as a full time graphic designer in San Diego. To many creative people live out here I guess. So, needless to say my mindset and time hasn't been on working on the ATIS CGI project as much as I would like. I am trying hard to start up some freelance work from clients and try to go into freelance design full time. I already have a few clients lined up that I am in contact with to get some freelance work but I am looking for more. As soon as things settle down in my job situation and I get stable I can go back and focus on my project again to give it the attention and love it needs to be something special.

I received some interesting e-mails I would like to share with everyone. I received some new images Tommorowland and ATIS related from Tim Hawkins that I have posted in the galley section (page 2) of the site.

I also received an interesting e-mail link from Tim Hauser about a Photo essay comparison: Then and Now on Tommorowland at The article is very sad but interesting to thumb through. See it here. Also check out the maintenance worker image of the walls of ice scene. Very cool stuff.

News 04-14-04: Issues with CGI project

Argh. I have dumped so much of my own money into this thing I sometimes wonder if it is all worth it. Buying a $500.00 Graphic card, new $1200.00 PC, media, programs, web space bills and now this!

Anyhoo- I was almost finished with this CGI project when yet again I come into yet another snag. I have completely run out of hard drive space to output an AVI (uncompressed) file of this ride so I can properly convert it to mpeg 2 (dvd) and my DVD burner has died and I need new DVD authorizing software. I am putting the Donations / ATIS Soundtrack CD back online to help fund this project so I can wrap up this sucker. Donations are always welcome and thanks again out there for your support, donations and advice with this site and project. Believe me, I want it to be finished as much as you do. :(

Click here to go to the "Sounds" page

News 03-10-04: Finished! Whew.

Well sort of... As of Sunday 03-7-04 at 4:30PM I was finished rendering my complete ATIS ridethru. I have already have made a high quality 720x480 windows media player 9 version that is 161MB in size and runs at 10 minutes and 12 seconds. It is almost like riding it again. Wow. Over a years worth of work for 10 minutes of movie. What a labor of love this was. I believe the ridethru is about 90% close to the exact ride (minus the spit and trash) and I am very happy with it. I will be editing files over this week and doing some DVD burn tests. I am having some DVD issues (isn't playing or reading in my home DVD players but plays on the PC DVD player!?!) so I am looking into it. I think it is my DVD authorizing software (cheap Sonic stuff that came with my DVD burner) or the disks I am using. A friend of mine has Adobe Encore so I will try it out and see if it fixes my DVD issues. If worst comes to worse I will put it on CD as an avi, VCD or VHS for people that are interested. Other than that it is going great! I still need to add a bunch of stuff like the title sequence, credits, bonus materials, different camera angles, slideshows, my commentary on the making of this project (and some problems that I had) and anything else I can put into this DVD. Let me know of some ideas that you might have.

Stay tuned!


News 01-12-04: 3 new Gallery images, CGI Movies are back online, teaser added and a mention in New York Times!

Three new images added to page 2 of gallery. Thanks to Bob Paris for the great new pics. Need to see a different version of the nucleus from 1970. Due to copyright I cannot post the image I have of the nucleus from 1980. Both look very different. See gallery for more details.

More images of CGI ride-thru, movies of the work in progress are back online and a newly added teaser trailer has been added to the CGI project page. I had a week vacation over the holiday so I invested many hours to the project. See page for details.

Thanks to everyone that has donated to this site. During my time in need.. It is because of you that I am able to keep this site online and get the movies back online. I have since moved my site to a new web host with a lot more bandwidth. No longer will I get hit with a huge bandwidth charge of $1000.00 for a single day of traffic. With this new host I am allowed 5GB of transfer a day. If the bandwidth goes over the 5gb limit the site will be shut down and reopened the very next day. So if you visit my site and it is down you will know that I was hit hard that day.

There is another new domain name pointed to I recently purchased when I made the change to the new web host. My new e-mail will be connected to it at

The same atommobile is back on ebay again this week.

If you can afford it put a bid on it. It would be great to own one.

Click here to see it on Ebay while it lasts. was mentioned in an article in the New York Times about Disney attractions getting recreated in CGI. They interviewed fellow CGI friend of mine, Spencer Cook about his CGI creation of Mr. Toad's Wild Ride from Walt Disney World (WDW lost their Mr Toad to the "Winnie the Pooh Adventure"). They also had a quick blurb about other creators like myself and the "If you had wings" project from Michael. Since the mention of the site on and just recently the New York Times I now receive thousands of visitors a day. Funny after three years that this site has been online that it is just now spreading like wildfire. I see links to my site on many other web and blog sites. I am so excited that there is so much interest and fans of this attraction. Very cool indeed. Click here to read the article.

I also want to give a special thanks to everyone that supports, contributes and visits this site and help make it better every year. Without you the content would be scarce.

Thanks to you all.

News 12-02-03: Atommobiles is killed by bandwidth issues!

Over this holliday weekend a very popular website called put up an article about my site and provided a direct link (without my consent so I could prepare for it) to my CGI ATIS virtual ride-thru project. While this was very flattering it also turned out to be very expensive for me. On a single day on (Saturday November 30th) I received 11,000 users that downloaded 33840.220 MB worth of stuff from the site. Due to the high bandwidth used, the site was shut down and I was left with a huge $1000.00 bill to pay. I am still working out details about bandwidth issues and I am switching to a more expensive account to get the site back online. So for now, all movies will be removed from the site and the site is in danger of being taken down until these issues get resolved. I will try to keep this site online as long as I can but without the help of some donations this site might become extinct just like Adventure Thru Inner Space. A sad day for me and fans it will be, indeed.

Barely holding on.....

Five great ATIS parody sound clips from the Inovations phone booth. Check it out in the sounds page.  
News 11-20-03: Quick news. Atommobile replica on Ebay
Check ebay quick! I heard from a good source that this replica was done at Imagineering around 1990 or 91. These were made at disney directly from one of their Atomobile figures. Its not dirt cheap, but it is a fraction of an original's price. See it here or click image to the left if you are interested.
News 09-29-03: Another Atommobile goes for auction on Ebay and CGI update.

Yet another mini atommobile is on sale on Ebay starting bid at $1000.00 and the reserve is still not met! I wish I had the bones for this one. This looks like a mobile that was IN the Mighty Microscope itself! Look at the track base on the bottom of the chair. It has the connectors to the conveyer belt chain. Very cool. A bit beat up but I hear from Disney Imagines that the authentic ATIS mini atommobiles are worn and beat up much like this one. If you have a perfect one chances are that you own a copy or fake. This is Item # 2194206372 if you want to see it for yourself.

Update on CGI project. I don't have much to show since almost the last two months rendering the 3750 frame lobby with a second pass for the snow composite for the petri dish. Even with a fast machine I had some render problems due to the high geometry of all the atommobiles on the loading dock and in the mighty microscope. My PC would render some frames then hang up. I would have to manually re-enter frame values and restart the batch rendering again. What a pain! See CGI Project for more info.

News 08-06-03: Updates to Gallery, Odds & Ends and CGI Project.
Some fellow fans have contributed some new images to the site. Check out the Galley Page 2 (at the bottom of the page) to see the new pics. There are some nice Peoplemover pics on the Odds & Ends section of the site. There are also a couple of new test render pics of the Snowflakes & Walls of ice scene. There is also a small Peoplemover test movie in the CGI Project section.
Interesting ATIS news: On an Ebay "Live" auction an actual mini atommobile that was from the Mighty Microscope tube was put up for auction on July 31st. Bidding started at $1000.00 and potential buyers could bid without being present using Ebay's online bidding interface. At 13:40:32 PDT the auction ended and sold for $2000.00. I contacted the representatives of the owner of the item to see if it was authentic. They stated that the owner was an Ex-employee of Disneyland and had owned the Atommobile for 10 years. It was amusing to read that the text description stated "This piece was made to give the impression that those on the ride had actually been shrunken for a voyage to "Inner Space" - the human body." The Human body? Whatever. I really wish I had the money to try to purchase/auction this item but it was just to large for my pocket book. To bad. Maybe someday.....

Here is the item number if you want to see it while the item is still in Ebay's database: 2182151870
More cool stuff that I cannot show: E-Ticket magazine has some great old photos of the inside of Adventure Thru Inner Space during the construction process. There are about 4 or 5 images that I have NEVER seen before and it is definitely worth a look. Due to Copyright issues I cannot post the images here. If you are reading this E-Ticket, let me know if there is something we can work out.

Yes, more Work In Progress lobby renders but I have some animation (with sound) of different shots of the lobby. Click here or visit the CGI Animation Project section of the site for the latest info.
News 06-09-03: a CGI "wip" lobby movie and a few new gallery images.

I have a few new images in the Gallery section on the end of page 2 sent in by Tim Hawkins. These are old pics from the former attractions that were housed in the ATIS building. See it here. Thanks Tim.

I have added 2 new articles from Ross Plesset & Noelle Hay for the "Our Memories of ATIS" area of the site. These were a great read and hit close to home. Check them out if you get a chance. If anyone else has a story to tell, sent it to me so I can post it on the site.

Well I guess it is finally time to get a new computer! I just rendered a 320x260 test of the lobby and it took 2 and a half days to render 3 seconds of animation. SEE IT HERE! Geesh! I guess I need to adjust my shadows or something. I didn't even have raytracing on (where the computer calculates light and reflections). I am running a Pentium 1GHZ with 256 of Ram. I will need a faster computer if I am ever to get this project finished. Anyhoo- Good news. My lobby is almost finished. I still need to add content to the diorama boxes, little people in the Mighty Microscope tube and actual people getting on the attraction. My animation skills in 3D haven't gotten into Character Animation yet so this might take some time before I have something I can use. I will be working on Character Models and Rigs next so things should get interesting and take some time to get through this hurdle.

I still need Diorama reference material for this project. If anyone out there has a video or images of the content in the Diorama boxes that were in the lobby please send them to me. I will send you a copy of this project when it is completed if you do. Thanks.

News 12-19-02: Finally More Updates!

I have made updates in many different areas of the site thanks to the many fans and insiders that have taken the time to help me expand Most noticeable is the new Gallery page. I have so many new pictures that I had do make a second page to hold it all! Odds & Ends has been updated with all new content, images and interesting odd facts about ATIS. An insider contacted me with some interesting answers to my Lame Questions I want answered section of the site as well as a small newspaper clipping about ATIS in the Articles section.

I will also soon have a fun "ATIS Theme Icons" available for download for windows. I only need to find the best place to put it. I might create a downloads section on the site that will contain Wallpapers, Sound clips and such.

Whoever is sending me angry e-mails about boycotting my site due to my "Monsanto sponsors" please stop it! Monsanto does not sponsor anything on this site and has nothing to do with any part or portion of it. Myself and ATIS fan donations sponsor the site entirely.

Thank you.

Thanks to Joe Campana we now have the COMPLETE ATIS Magazine from Monsanto in the Articles section. The Scans are large and detailed. Look closely at the Storyboards in the background. Cool stuff!

One last thing. I noticed that there is a discrepancy on the Timeline when I was rebuilding it. Does anyone know the actual date when 20,000 Leagues walkthru and House of Chemistry was installed and removed. My information both says 1955-1956. How could they both be there? Did they share the building? Buzz me if you know. There will be even more things to see soon. I am expecting a brand new 3D map by Eddie Valiant, new detailed walkthru by Mike Herman, An ATIS Windows Theme from Jeff Babb and more. Check back for them somtime this Month. Still looking for photos of Uniforms.

I have added 3 new areas to

First I added an "Online Forum" (in the Contact section) for anyone who wishes to contribute their memories or stories of ATIS.

The second new area is "ATIS Articles" page. This will have past news and stories all having to do with ATIS or links to some online articles about ATIS written by insiders or imaginers of Disney. Some of the articles are old but yet hold interesting information that you might find intriguing.

If the original writers do not want their articles posted on this site please contact me and I will remove them immediately! I do hope that you would want to share your insight and info with myself and others that are interested and visit this site.

The third new area is "Our Memories of ATIS". This is an interesting collection of old forum articles that I have collected over the years that contains comments, stories and memories of ATIS. I hope that will soon get it's own collection of memories in the "Online Forum" section of the site. I find that many of the comments that were left in these Forums were not to different from my own experiences and opinions of ATIS. Check it out.

Well that last few weeks have been a little crazy around here for me. The amount of traffic this site is getting WAY to large with $$$ and bandwidth issues to be shared with the current I will be in the process of transferring the site to a new location on it's own host domain out of my $ pocket. What will be the new domain you might ask? What do you think? of course! Hope doesn't get upset! It was such a cool name I couldn't pass it up. So look for the new site to be up within this week at

Yeah...I know. should only have one "M" in it! First off, I have seen it spelled both ways and second, the single "M" Domain is taken by this a cheesy car company. So a double "M" it is. Don't bug me on that! Please.

Thank you all for the wonderful letters, stories and images that help make this site grow everyday......or when I update it that is. I try to update at least once a week if there are enough items to add to the site.

Even More stuff...

I am currently talking with the makers of a ATIS extinct attractions club DVD that has a great 25 minute bio on everything ATIS. If everyone saw this DVD there would almost be no need for this web site! I would like to make it available on this site. It has great lobby footage (seen in my movies section) and a video ride through (created back in the last year of operation) that is a little dark...okay....a lot dark. You can still make out many things like some of the set models or large hydrogen atoms on the walls little projected snowflakes and more! Let me know if you are interested in a DVD of ATIS to be sold on this site and I will talk with them more.

I might also get some footage of the inside of the ride. We shall see. Keep your fingers crossed! I will keep you posted. I have also updated the maps section of the site for a comparison of Star Tours VS. ATIS.
