Siemens Sponsors New Interactive Attraction; Dame Judi Dench Narrates
Spaceship Earth has relaunched and reopened at Epcot, where the icon was rededicated Tuesday, March 4, 2008. And while it looks much like it did on the outside when Epcot opened in 1982, the inside has undergone dramatic changes since summer 2007, including an innovative 'interactive' attraction with many new scenes, new costumes and set decorations, new lighting and special effects, a new musical score and narration, and a totally re-themed interactive post-show.
On a trip through time inside the Spaceship Earth attraction, now sponsored by Siemens, guests discover how each generation of mankind has invented the future for the next generation, and how the spirit of innovation has moved people from caves to the cosmos. During the journey, new scenes depict: a family in the late 1960s viewing the moon landing on television; a massive, two-story computer room of the late 1960s with reel-to-reel-computers; a garage of the early 1970s where the 'personal computer' is born; and a 'tech tunnel' in which guests become part of a digital data stream.
