Your journey through time starts with a cave scene set in prehistoric times (demonstrating the beginnings of the spoken language), continuing across the globe to places such as ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and the Middle East as you see the development of the written word, the theater, information networks, and the higher arts. Next you’ll visit more recent times as you witness the advent of the printed word, motion pictures, radio, the personal computer, and the internet. As you near the top of Spaceship Earth you’ll see a truly stunning sight – the interior of the giant sphere is transformed into a colossal planetarium, with a majestic view of planet Earth high overhead.

For the remainder of your journey, your attention shifts to a video screen in your vehicle, where you can get a glimpse of what the future holds for you. Simply answer a few questions via the touchscreen, and you’ll get to see a whimsical video of your personalized ‘future’.

Spaceship Earth is filled with dazzling effects and stunning visuals, and is truly a classic attraction (with some stunning new updates) that’s not to be missed!
