Disneyland Ex Machina

Adventure Thru Kerned Space

Wordle: Adventure Thru Inner Space

Click to embiggen. Using Wordle technology, I created this lovely word cloud using the ride script of “Adventure Thru Inner Space.” I borrowed the script from Steve Wesson’s terrific Atommobiles.com site; I hope he doesn’t mind. Mr. Wesson created the virtual “Inner Space” ride-through that made the rounds a few years back; it’s absolutely worth tracking down a copy whether you’re a fan of this defunct Disneyland attraction or not. No less august a geek personage than Wil Wheaton has bestowed his blessing upon it.

As for my word cloud — I’m finding somebody to put that sucker on a t-shirt. That’s all there is to it. The period between the 1964 New York World’s Fair and the 1982 opening of EPCOT was a particularly inspired time for Disney attraction scripts. They contained big words and clever turns of phrase, two notions that don’t seem to have a lot of traction in the theme-park world these days.

Many thanks to YSG compatriot Greg Dunlap for introducing me to Worldle, and consequently sucking up half my free time today.

  1. Gorgeous. I love them. I want them as desktops. I was just thinking oooh, Haunted Mansion when I scrolled down and saw the second one– now we just need it in grey and green and black. I know, I know, we Disney geeks are never satisfied.

  2. Great post!

    I've created one from the Tiki Room script:
