HORIZONS the way you wish you knew it.

You have to check out what these guys did just before the the doors to future-living were shut forever at Epcot's masterpiece attraction, Horizons.  Hoot and Chief did what we all have wanted to do but never dared.  They jumped out of moving Horizons vehicles and experienced the elaborate sets and animatronic figures up close and personal- not once but multiple times.  Masa Verde Times showcases their amazing story with incredible (and hilarious) videos and photos.

also - are there other sites like that on the web? I have never seen one. If so, i'd love to know. I wonder if this kind of thing has ever been attempted at this level before. I wouldnt be suprised if it hadnt.

I Saw this site before and spent forever on it the first time. Epcot was always my favorite and Horizons was a big reason for that. Imagination was another fav and honestly I don't know which is worse, keeping a ride that ends up like Imag or loosing a ride altogether like Horizons. at least we have this Mesa Verde blog!!!
