Episode #285 - If You Had Wings

Overview: If You Had Wings was a hybrid of dark ride, creative effort, and advertisement.  I took a look back at how it came to be, what it was, and give you the ride audio. I also discuss the Omnimover ride technology.  Remember, you do have wings...  

Notes: If You Had Wings was quite memorable in spite of its limited effects, and lack of an immersive storyline.  I suppose it was the music, the general fun of it all, and the fact that it was free in an era where you paid per ride.  People talk about the attraction with reverence.  Or at least I do.
