Mission to Mars. It’s the show that nobody wanted. Even Disney.

I go into the history of the attraction in almost too much detail on Episode 31 of the RetroWDW podcast, so check that out if you want a deep dive into the attraction.

RetroWDW also fully restored a 16mm film of the show’s upper scanner, which is a must-see for those interested. It didn’t look as good on the actual ride!

Anyway, sometime in the late summer or early fall of 1993, I went into Mission to Mars with the binaural head to record the attraction, since it was rumored to close in September (it actually closed in October). The binaural process isn’t as spectacular in large, open spaces, but it does give you a feel for the ambience of the space. The recording includes a brief stop in the first waiting area (note the sound of the turnstiles), the Mission Control pre-show with Mr. Johnson, and the main show.
