Adventure Thru Inner Space was a classic Disneyland dark ride that operated in the Tomorrowland section of the park. It opened in 1967 as an addition to the section for the New Tommorrowland and was closed permanently in 1985 to open space for Star Tours, a new motion simulator attraction based on George Lucas' Star Wars.

Queue & Attraction Spiel[edit]

Scientist (Paul Frees): We wish you an enlightening journey, for although your body will shrink, your mind will expand.


Paul Frees: For centuries, man had but his own two eyes to explore the wonders of his world, then he invented the microscope, a mighty eye, and discovered the fantastic universe beyond the limits of his own meager sight. Now your adventure thru innerspace has begun.


Paul Frees: Suspended in the timelessness of inner space are the thought waves of my first impessions. They will be our only source of contact once you have passed beyond the limits of normal magnification...(reverb and fade out)


Paul Frees: These are snowflakes, and yet they seem to grow larger and larger... or can I be shrinking? Shrinking beyond the smallness of a tiny snowflake crystal. Indeed, I am becoming smaller and smaller!


Paul Frees: What these strange spheres... have I reached the universe of the molecule? Yes, these are water molecules, H20! They vibrate in such an orderly manner because this is water frozen into a solid state of matter.


Paul Frees: And still I continue to shrink, is it possible that I can enter the atom itself?!


Paul Frees: Electrons are dashing about me, like so many fiery comets! Can I possibly survive?!


Paul Frees: Yes, the snowflake has melted. But there is no cause for alarm. You are back on visual and returning to your normal size.


Paul Frees: This has been one of may exciting adventures through innerspace. In a never-ending search for new ways to rearrange molecules for the benefit of mankind.


Theme Song[edit]

Miracles from molecules are dawning every day,

discoveries for happiness in a fab-u-lous array!

A never-ending search is on by men who dare and plan:

making modern miracles from molecules for man!

Every atom is a world, an infinity unfurled!

A world of innerspace without an end!

A world of mystery, of endless energy,

with treasures more than man can ever spend!!!

Miracles from molecules are dawning every day,

discoveries for happiness in a fab-u-lous array!

A never-ending search is on by men who dare and plan:

making modern miracles from molecules for ma-a-an,

making modern miracles from molecules for man!

Miracles from molecules around us every where,

there are miracles from molecules in the Earth, the sea, the air!

Now men with dreams are furthering what nature first began:

making modern miracles from molecules for man!
