Carousel of Progress's climax


Today in my ongoing series of photos from my travels -- the exciting climax scene from the Disney World/GE Carousel of Progress, originally built as an exercise in animatronic, futuristic boosterism for the 1964 World's Fair. I love this ride, a revolving theater that tells a highly slanted version of the history of electricity, culminating in this glorious, 1980s living room complete with terrible, blocky VR game and comedy voice-recognition technology. It inspired me to write a forthcoming story, "There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow/Now is the Best Time of Your Life"
