THE SUBMARINE VOYAGE.

[DVD: Theme Parkology – 2012 – 60 mins +bonus]. Dive! Dive! Dive! In 1959 Walt Disney expanded his Disneyland theme park (Anaheim, California) with three new attractions: The Alweg Monorail, The Matterhorn Bobsled and The Submarine Voyage. Guests would climb aboard the submarines and slowly journey through the depths of the Disneyland Lagoon. Once below the surface, guests were treated to a world of underwater marvels which included: the wondrous world of sea creatures, ship wrecks, lost treasure, the Lost City of Atlantis and even a mythological sea serpent. Travel through the history of this forgotten attraction to discover how the concept came about, the closure of The Submarine Voyage and the replacement ride – The Finding Nemo Voyage. This DVD includes a detailed interview with Disney Legend and Imagineer, Bob Gurr. ANDY SHINE SAYS: This programme also discusses the ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea’ ride at Tokyo DisneySea and The Submarine Voyage-like attractions at other Disney theme parks. The 20-minute bonus film discusses the real-life seafaring inspiration behind The Submarine Voyage. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
